Claxton needs Test Proctors for the EOGs!
We need your help…
EOG Test Proctors Needed!
Proctors are the "silent monitors" who will alert the test administrator (the teacher) of anything that deviates from the testing procedures. Test proctors are vital resources for helping our school ensure the integrity of the testing process.
Please click below to sign up, this volunteer time is crucial to our students' success!
1. Click here to sign up for a 45 minute training and let Mary Nichols (Claxton AP and Testing Coordinator) know when you could be available to proctor. You’ll get more information by clicking on the link.
2. Click here to start on your background check (all proctors must have a background check through Asheville City Schools!). If you already have had a background check, please check with Elizabeth Callahan (email@example.com) to confirm.

Spring Scholastic Book Fair
Spanish Phrase of the Week
¿Como se llama tu maestro/a?
Mi maestro/a se llama ....
What is your teacher's name?
My teacher's name is ....
After learning that maestro/a is the Spanish word for teacher (ending with an o for a male teacher and an a for a female teacher), last week we learned to ask what your teacher's name is. This week, we get to answer the question.
Let the conversations begin!
Notice tu means your and mi means my. Easy!
We've practiced to this song before, but it's even more fun with these images!
