Celebrations and Carnivals

Well that was quick!  Clayburn enjoyed another amazing week of learning, creating, competing and celebrating.  Our amazing group of compassionate and dedicated EAs enjoyed a thank you lunch on Thursday too.  This group of wonderful people make contributions to and enrich the educational experiences of all the children they work with and we are so very fortunate to have them on staff. 

This week also saw a flurry of activity in one of our grade 7 classes, who were challenged to design, construct and test carnival games in which players must have at least a 25% chance in winning.  Way better odds than the PNE!  With everything from bean bag toss, skee/skittle ball, catapult basketball, magnet finishing and PLINKO, Mrs Strocel and Mrs Cal’s class treated many classes with a trip through their math carnival games.   We ended the week with our first of two awards ceremonies.  This one celebrating our student-athletes and their accomplishments on the courts, trails, track and fields.  A huge thank to our community coaches and our school’s dedicated team of volunteer coaches as well as the district best athletic director, the extraordinary Mr. David Jones.

 As promised last week, we wanted to celebrate all of our school's track and field athletes who competed so strongly at this year's meet.  Our school placed 3rd overall, just behind Abby Middle.  Here is a list of our top 8 finishers!
