All the Buzz
From Dr. Hughes...
It has been a great week with our youngest students back in the building. We have all enjoyed them here and they are doing a great job keeping their masks on and learning the new routines. We welcome our 2nd and 3rd graders back Tuesday morning and we are so excited to have them back, too. Parents, we are asking that you remember to wear your masks while on school property.
Whether you are returning to in-person instruction or staying virtual, I want to say how grateful and thankful I am for all your hard work over the last 6 months. We have all taken on roles that we never anticipated we would need to. The wonderful Lily B. community moved to virtual learning in March with patience and dedication to make sure it would work. You started this year virtually with the same determination and energy with which you ended the 2019-2020 year. I know there have been a lot of starts, stops and unknowns to begin this year, but we have finally made it. Thank you to all the parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, older siblings, and neighbors who have stepped in to be the teacher, coach, and counselor to fill the void during virtual learning. We are so thankful for all of you!
Happy October, Lily B. Family!

Daily schedules will change for virtual learners once in-person instruction begins. There will only be slight changes in the virtual schedule until your child’s grade level begins in-person instruction. Then the virtual learning schedule will mirror the in-person learning schedule.
The 12th annual Lily B. Clayton Walkathon is here!
Online Donation Drive runs October 19 – October 30
Drive Through Kick Off October 19 – Sign Up to Volunteer Below
Walkathon Weekend is November 6-8
The Walkathon is Lily B.’s fall fundraiser, where students ask neighbors, relatives, and friends for donations to the school. Each year, our goal is to raise enough money to fund many of the things that make Lily B. great (art & music programs, new technology, academic materials, and more). Last year, the students raised over $57,000 in donations!
We are excited to streamline our annual Walkathon Fundraiser by going online this year. Instead of collecting cash and checks, students will use an app for online pledges and gifts.
On October 19th from 4-6 pm, join us for our Kick Off Drive Through!
Pick up students’ walkathon T-shirt, packet, and sacks.
Enjoy the Paschal Band and Pom Squad and celebrate our sweet Lily B.
Then, mark your calendar for November 6-8 to walk with your family in your neighborhood to celebrate your hard work! Don't forget to post your walk online! The most creative photo and video will win a special prize!
Volunteers!! We need 10 volunteers to help make the Kick Off Drive Through a success, please consider joining us and be part of the fun! Please use the Signup Genius below.
2020-2021 LBC Family Directory – Registration Extended
We’ll soon have a new Lily B. Family Directory, but we cannot include your child’s name in it if you do not opt in. The more students and families who are listed, the better the directory will be.
Please visit https://s.surveyplanet.com/o63XI_l6V to share your information to be included.
LBC Library Curbside
Students participating in online learning may participate in LBC Library Curbside.
To request library books, students will log into ClassLink, and click the Follett App to access the LBC Library catalog.
Students may place up to 4 books on hold at a time. Instructions for placing books on hold will be in the Library Google Classroom stream.
Mrs. Bradshaw will try her best to fulfill 2 of the 4 hold requests. If no books are available of the 4 books placed on hold, Mrs. Bradshaw will choose 2 books from the library that she recommends as replacements.
Hold requests must be placed by Mondays at 7:00am. LBC Library Curbside will be available Wednesdays 7:45am to 3:40pm.
LBC Library Curbside will be in the inner courtyard (stage) by the double doors (ramp).
Books will be labeled with student name and bundled together.
Students may ONLY pick up the bag labeled with their name .
Once on the cart, books are checked out to the student and are their responsibility.
There will be an additional book cart next to the book cart with student hold request for book returns.
Returned books will be quarantined for 72 hours.

Way To Go Patrols!
Each year, Lily B Clayton 5th graders have the opportunity to serve as the school's safety patrols. The patrols make sure the younger students are safe and in the correct location before school, they are responsible for raising the flag each day and for greeting students and parents as they arrive. Thank you patrols for making everyone safer and our days brighter!
Thank you Library Volunteers
Volunteers help students find books, check them in and out, and re-shelve them. The library is a fun place to become involved with your child's class.
When students return to school, we will post the library schedule. Parents and grandparents like to sign up to volunteer when their child's class visits the library. When FWISD allows volunteers in schools, we will definitely look forward to having your help. If you'd like to be put on a list to volunteer in the library during the 2020-2021 school year (if possible) please email me at email@example.com.
Sign Up for Secret Pals
Parents, please consider being a "Secret Pal" to one of our teachers or staff. Volunteers are asked to provide three small ($20-$25) tokens of appreciation throughout the school year. We suggest doing a Welcome Back, Happy New Year, End of School Year and/or Birthday treat. Our teacher and staff love this program and it is a great way to show our appreciation for all that they do for Sweet Lily B. Once you are paired with someone, you will receive an information sheet with that staff member's likes, interests, etc. If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
