KINGS BAY “ELEMENTARY EXTRAVANZA” SUCCESS! To ensure
that military families moving to Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay have a smooth educational transition, the
School Liaison Officer Clainetta Jefferson and Child and Youth Program Assistant Kevin Furrow coordinated
the first-ever Back-to-School Bash just for elementary students. The “Elementary Extravaganza” was hosted on
Saturday, August 4th at the installation’s Fitness Complex from 12 noon until 2:00 PM. This event was intended
to provide military families with elementary students a casual atmosphere in which to learn more about the local
schools and the programs they offer.
The nearly 145 guests in attendance were able to play outdoor
games, splash in the pool, listen to the latest tunes, and eat lunch.
Most importantly, parents and students met with school principals
and administrators from three local elementary schools. The
success of this event was based on the collaboration between
Child and Youth Programs, the Fleet and Family Support Center,
Operation Homefront, Navy Federal Credit Union, and volunteers
from the installation’s Branch Medical Clinic.
Although this was the first “Elementary Extravaganza,” this event
marked only the beginning the installation’s Back-to-School Bash Dr. Sheila Sapp (seated), Crooked River Elementary

part of the Child and Youth Sponsorship Program, Kings Bay will
host these two Back-to-School events this Saturday, August 11th at the Fitness Complex. These events provide
secondary students the same opportunity to meet school administrators and get answers to those last few
questions before school begins on Tuesday, August 14th. These back-to-school events not only promote better
partnerships between the installation and local education agencies, but they help students of all ages begin the
new school year confident, relaxed, and ready to learn.
