It's time to get excited - really excited - about the 2016-2017 Claxton Elementary School yearbook! This is our Yearbook Club's second year, and the fourth- and fifth-grade students in this year's club have worked very hard to fill this year's book with an increased number of pages, meaning more photos and more student-created artwork! Pre-order your yearbook now to ensure you get your copy, which will surely be enjoyed for years and years to come.
Order your 2016-2017 yearbook by Friday, April 28. You can order online here or you can print and submit this form, along with a check made out to Claxton PTA in the amount of $20.00, to your student's teacher.
Please note that it is highly suggested you pre-order the book. We may have a limited number of copies available at a higher price once we receive the printed yearbooks, but this will not be guaranteed.

PTA needs you next year!
Many Claxton stars look forward to Field Day every year! It is a great day for the students to spend time outside being active and having fun.
In order to make this happen, we will need several volunteers for each day. These volunteers will setting up field day centers, running the centers and cleaning up afterwards. Although these volunteers won't be walking around with their child, you will have the opportunity to see and play with your child.
Check out the links below to find a time to volunteer.
Get regular updates on what's happening at Claxton and around Guilford County plus helpful reminders by following our Facebook page. You can also follow Claxton Library and Claxton Principal on Facebook.
Do you want to make a difference at Claxton? Are you looking to become more involved? Would you like to meet other parents and get to work with an awesome group of volunteers?
