The Claxton Directory is going DIGITAL!
Our PTO has subscribed to the MySchoolAnywhere service for our family and faculty directories. It's secure, easy to use, and free to families.
The family directory helps to build community with better communication among Claxton parents, students, and families. You can connect with a classroom peer for playdates/parties or reach out for help if you have a question about an assignment!
There are 2 ways to register: simply click on the link below or go directly to the site, enter our school code, and follow the steps to register your family.
You specify what information you'd like to appear in the directory – email, phone, address – or any combination - or choose not to appear at all. There are options to enter one or two parents and/or two households. Only current Claxton families will have access to the directory and your information is secure and never given to 3rd parties.

Box Tops 4 Education
Did you know that the money that Claxton receives from the Box Tops 4 Education program directly benefits Coach Swain's PE program?! Claxton is ALWAYS collecting Box Tops, and we want your help!
You can start by clipping the Box Tops off approved products you already have in your pantry. You don't need to clip the actual product UPC — just the Box Tops logo will do. From frozen foods to produce and household cleaning products, there are literally hundreds of opportunities to help, and each Box Top is worth 10 cents. Doesn't sound like a lot, but it adds up fast. Box Tops are collected in the clear plastic bears located in the front hallway and gymnatorium.
There are so many participating companies! Participating companies and product lines include General Mills, Green Giant, Totino's, Pillsbury, Old El Paso, Ziploc, Hefty, Juicy Juice, Betty Crocker and many more. Here is a link to the participating brands.
The Box Tops 4 Education program offers new discount coupons on popular brands each month and also offers benefits for online purchases! Click here to see this month's offers.
Clip those tops and lets fill those bears for Coach Swain!
