Thank you to all of the volunteers that came out on August 20 to get the school ready for our Claxton Stars to return!
The group worked hard to edge natural areas, spread mulch, pull weeds, plant flowers, install stone around the tree in the outdoor classroom and generally clean up the grounds.
Thank you to everyone who participated and a special thanks to Katie Smith and Lynn Wolfe and their families for leading and organizing the event!
PTA Open House
K-2nd Grades: 6:30-7:30pm
3rd-5th Grades 7:30-8:30pm
All parents are invited to join us on September 19 for Open House. This is a time for parents to hear about curriculum and other classroom information from their teacher, attend a quick PTA meeting, and meet other Claxton families.
We hope you take this opportunity to come and learn more about what your child will be doing this year at Claxton and what the PTA is doing to support all Claxton Stars!
