4th Grade Family Volunteer Sign-Up to Host CLX Graduation Reception

It's Claxton tradition that our 4th grade families celebrate and honor our graduating 5th graders by providing food and other donations for the 5th Grade Graduation Celebration. Our 4th Grade Class Reps, Amanda VanCleve and Kelly Lytle, have organized a sign-up sheet for 4th grade families to participate. Sign up here-- If you have any questions, please contact Amanda at or Kelly at

Field Day 2018 Info and Volunteer Sign-Up

Claxton's Field Day is just around the corner! This year's event will be held at Memorial Stadium on Wednesday, June 6th.

Please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the day including sunscreen, hat, active footwear, and clothes that can get wet and be comfortable.

We cannot host such a large event for our entire school without help and support from YOU! Please click here for the Sign-Up Genius link to see where and when volunteers are needed. Sign up if you're able to join us for the fun on Field Day!

AVL Half Marathon Water Station Volunteers to Support Claxton

This is a great opportunity to get the whole family involved in volunteering. The runners LOVE seeing kids passing out water and the kids have plenty of energy to cheer the runners on! By filling these volunteer spots, we can earn $1000 for Claxton, so please consider signing up below. Volunteers need to arrive at their assigned water stations between 6:45am and 7:00am and your shift will end by 11:00am. Claxton's water stations will either be along Broadway St or on UNCA's campus. Our volunteers will be divided among 2-3 stations. This volunteer opportunity is KID-FRIENDLY and LOTS OF FUN!!!! Wear your Claxton shirt and/or school colors of royal blue and sunny yellow! Click here to sign up!

Collect Your Box Tops this Summer to Support Physical Education at Claxton!

Please save your Boxtops for Education throughout the summer and bring them in when you return to school in August. You can place them in the bear container outside of the main office or in the gym. This will help us "kick off" the school year by providing funds for Coach Swain to buy new balls and other needed equipment for our P.E. program! Thank you!
