Updates to Claxton's Summer Escape!

Alert! Safe Removal of Invasive Species this Summer

Want to know more about the learning at Summer Escape?

You may know that this summer in the media center we will READ, LEARN, EAT, and DISCOVER at Claxton's Summer Escape on Tuesdays from 10am-2pm!


But did you know this summer we're all about science and environmental engineering? Our theme this year is "CAMP OUT" and our lessons will be hands-on fun about the safe removal of an invasive animal species! What a great way for kids to review learning from previous grades or prepare for the years ahead. Designed for rising kindergarten through rising 6th graders, but the whole family is welcome!
