Three Blue Paws


Mary Lee Clark Elementary School, in partnership with parents and community, will provide a safe positive learning environment nurturing every student’s potential.


Mary Lee Clark Elementary School will provide a foundation which prepares students to achieve lifelong learning skills.


All students can learn and achieve in a safe, supportive, and disciplined environment.
Students learn best when engaged in meaningful and challenging work.
Teachers are vital in building and fostering self-esteem.
Quality education requires community and parental involvement.
Every student should receive differentiated instruction from highly qualified teachers who hold them to high expectations.
Technology should be implemented into every facet of the curriculum.


When Henry Floyd, a Mary Lee Clark Elementary 3rd grader, learned that there were students at his school who may not be able to afford some of their basic needs, like socks and toothpaste, he wanted to do his part to help his friends. Henry created the "Panther Project" and sponsored a naming contest for the school's new panther mascot to raise money to donate to the school social workers.

Students from PreK-5 brought in change to vote for their favorite mascot name and by the end of the Panther Project, $670 was raised for the School Social Worker's Fund.The winning name "Sir Purr" was chosen by Jackson Bledsoe from the 1st grade. 

Way to go, Henry, Jackson and the Mary Lee Clark Panthers. We think you did a "paw"some job!

  • Contact your child's teacher early in the school year and maintain communication throughout the school year.
  • Participate in parent/teacher conferences.
  • Ask the teacher what your child is learning and how you can support this at home.
  • Talk with your child daily about homework, classroom activities, and events.
  • Learn about school policies and expectations so you can help your child understand them.
  • Make efforts to stay informed of school and classroom events.
  • Encourage and nurture your child's creativity.
  • Be proactive in making the school aware of your support for your child's education.
  • Establish a daily family routine.
