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!
Please help us as we encourage our students taking the EOGs! We want to be sure that each student has a nutritious snack to power their mind. Help us set up, serve & clean up.
We NEED VOLUNTEERS! If you are you available to help with this, please sign up to be a volunteer! (You'll be finished by 8:30 with plenty of time to get to work!)
Our fifth graders will celebrate the last of their Claxton days on June 9th at 8:30am at the church directly across the street from the school. A reception will follow in the Claxton cafeteria. Invitations will be sent home to 5th grade families.
Congratulations to all of our 5th graders and good luck on what's next!
What can you do to help your child prepare for EOGs?
EOGs can be stressful for students but you can help them feel confident and prepared. Here are a few things that will help your child prepare for EOGS:
Get plenty of rest.
Eat a good breakfast.
Arrive at school on time.
Minimize extra curricular activities during test week to reduce stress.
Wake up a little early on test day to ensure a calm, stress free morning.
Show them encouragement with a big hug and tell them you have confidence in them!
Breakfast for Test Takers
Claxton Stars will recognize long-time crossing guard and friend to many, "Mr. Ron", with a hero's walk through the halls at Claxton on Monday, June 12. He will be leaving us at the end of this school year and we want to make sure he knows how much we will miss him!
If you'd like to contribute to a commemorative gift or be there to help celebrate his long service, please get in touch with Karen Hairston.
