Calling All Helping Hands: Outdoor Workday Tomorrow, Saturday June 1 9am-1pm

Join us for a community outdoor workday! We'll be weeding garden beds and taking care of a few other tasks around campus. We have garden tools, but if you have any favorite tools, feel free to bring them! No experience or green thumb is necessary! Come out and have fun. It's a great time for families. Children are definitely welcome! Email our Claxton PTO Grounds Chair, Tricia Johnson, at if you have any questions.

Go Local Card Survey

Hello from the Go Local Card!

Thank you for being a Go Local Cardholder. By choosing to Go Local you contribute to our collective vision of a unique and thriving community. Half of all proceeds from the sale of these cards go to Asheville's city public schools and last year we were able to contribute $25,000 to our schools.

To continue to grow and strengthen our program, we’re asking for less than 5 minutes of your time to share your experience. *BONUS* for your time in completing this survey, we'd like to gift you $2 off next year's card!

Your voice is so important to us. This grassroots effort is only as strong and successful as we all make it together. We really appreciate your time and feedback.
