Would you like to help teachers at Claxton but your schedule doesn't allow time to volunteer? No worries! You can make an in-kind donation to classrooms at the school. Teachers are always in need of items for their classrooms that go beyond glue sticks and paper. Many teachers have requests for playground balls, jump ropes, long-reach staplers, and furniture (just to name a few). Most teachers are happy to accept gently used items as well. Browse through the lists, and select what you'd like to donate. Who knows? You may just have many of these items sitting around your house waiting for someone to use them. Every in-kind donation that is made allows teachers to use that much more of their money for other supplies in the classroom.
Now through June 10th, you can place your online order for your child's school supplies for next year. No more running around to many different stores and battling the crowds. No more frustration because one store is sold out of the color folders you need. Order the SchoolKidz Teacher Tailored School Supply Kit that is custom built based on what Claxton teachers have requested for each grade level.
Order now, and kits will be delivered to your student's desk in time for Meet and Greet in August. We even have kits for incoming Kindergarten students in the fall. These are high quality supplies with the exact brands our teachers requested. Backpacks, lunchbags, water bottles, and food containers are available as well. Order information went home in Monday folders on May 16th. Don't miss out on this great service. Order today!
Claxton PTA is offering a breakfast snack for these students at 7:20am in the cafeteria on the morning of their tests. We want to help our Stars feel their best at test time! WE NEED VOLUNTEERS for this, sign up if you are available to help!
You can help your child prepare for the EOGs by ensuring they get plenty of rest, eat a good breakfast and arrive to school on time! Be sure to cheer on your Claxton Star and let them know you have confidence in them!
Claxton's very own Ms. Hager is working to raise money for a new classroom library. Through DonorsChoose.org, you can help her meet this financial goal! The deadline for meeting this goal is less than 30 short days away so act now if you are able! This will be a great addition to her classroom and our school! Thank you from Ms. Hager and her current and future students.
