Extending Learning Beyond the Classroom

Clayton County Public Schools is excited to announce that this Friday, September 17, 2021 is the 2nd Extended Learning Beyond the Classroom (ELBC) Day for 2021-2022. All Callaway Knights will remain home for asynchronous (independent) learning, while staff report to work for in-person training, lesson planning, and data analysis.

Important: This is a learning day. Students will access their assignments from their teachers and work independently at home. Here at Callaway, we are using this time for students to explore their STEM minds. All assignments for Grades K-5 are due Monday, September 20th, when students return to the building.

Please also note that school issued laptops for Grades 3-5 students will be sent home with students who have returned their ELBC agreement form, Thursday, September 16th. Laptops for 3-5 students will need to be returned back to school Monday, September 20th.

If you have any questions about assignments please contact your child's teacher. The directions will be provided with each grade level task. The tasks are as follows:

K- The Sorting Challenge
1st- GoTriorama
2nd- Rainbow Fish
3rd- Happy to Eat Healthy
4th- Waves of Sounds
5th- Sequencing: Balloon Car Challenge

All tasks are hands-on activities that relate to STEM learning that uses scientific inquiry based skills and thinking. Parents, we would love for you to take pictures and share with teachers of your scholars creating and innovating on Friday.

Parents, we thank you for your support of our efforts to promote higher learning beyond the classroom!
