2018-19 Elementary Faculty & Staff


As Clopton Elementary welcomes in December, we realize it will be a December to remember with all the fun activities planned this month! First on the agenda is the Parents As Teachers annual Breakfast with Santa this Saturday, December 1 from 9:00 - 10:30 a.m. This is for children birth to Pre-K ages. Miss Julie is looking forward to seeing you there!

The ever-popular PTO Club’s Choice Holiday Shoppe will be held on Tuesday through Thursday, December 4–6. Students will have the opportunity to purchase gifts for their loved ones during this event! A huge THANK YOU to PTO for making this possible every year! Next on board will be the YMCA Before and After School Program Christmas Party which is planned for Thursday, December 6 after school until 6:30 p.m.

There is nothing like a little holiday music to get you into the Christmas spirit! Join us on Thursday, December 13 at 6:30 p.m. as we gather to hear Pre-K through 6th grades’ Christmas Concert! The Christmas Band Concert will be on December 11 at 7 p.m. Mr. Heyel has been working diligently with students to prepare for these concerts. We look forward to seeing you then!

Students just enjoyed their celebration in completing the Thanksgiving Reading Challenge by making a Christmas ornament. They are now gearing up for the next reading challenge over Christmas Break. Watch for details to be sent home closer to break! Our building level reading goal again this year is that at least 90% of students demonstrate a year’s growth in reading, while all students show progress. Please encourage your child to read at home. The more a child is engaged in reading, the greater his/her success in school.

We will finish out our December to Remember with our 2nd Qtr. Awards Assembly. 6th Grade will have their awards during their Quarterly Incentive on December 21 at 7:45 a.m. Students have been working hard to attend the incentive by doing their school work, keeping their attendance up, tardies down, etc. K-5 Awards Assembly will be on December 21st at 1 p.m. Classroom Christmas Parties will follow at 2:30 p.m. that day to kick off our Christmas Break.

Look for more information in your teacher’s weekly newsletter. Classes will resume on January 2. Wishing you a warm and wonderful holiday season!
