3rd-5th Grade Valentine's Dance Info + Sign Up to Donate or Volunteer!
Please Help with Jubeelee Food & Drink Donations!
Each year local restaurants and businesses donate food and drinks that can be served at the Jubeelee. It is a special part of the event to have an abundant buffet of delicious foods and a variety of drinks representing some of the best restaurants in town. It is a great opportunity for local restaurants to be seen by our friend-and-family network of 650 Claxton and Asheville Primary families and anticipated 250 Jubeelee attendees (and all donations are tax deductible).
If you are a restaurant owner and would like to donate food or drinks to be served at the event, please contact Amy Aiken at email@example.com. If you know a restaurant owner and are willing to ask that owner for a donation, please do so and contact Amy Aiken with the details.
Thanks for your help in making this event a success!

Magnet School Enrollment for 2020-2021
Chaperoning and Other Volunteering at Claxton
1) Whether you're a new or returning Claxton volunteer, an online background check is needed each year to volunteer in any capacity with students at school or as a supervising chaperone on field trips. It takes about 5 minutes to start your background check but can sometimes take 2-3 weeks for checks to be approved. You cannot volunteer until your background check has been approved, so jump over to this link to get yours started. https://bib.com/SecureVolunteer/Asheville-City-Schools/
2) Also, all volunteers need to attend a brief (~30min) Level II volunteer training with Asheville City Schools before you can volunteer at Claxton. The training is a one-time requirement (not needed each year) and this year's schedule is set so you can go ahead and check the calendar. Please see below for the next training sessions or check this year's full calendar HERE. Trainings take place in the Boardroom at Asheville City Schools' Central Office at 85 Mountain Street unless otherwise noted. No registration is required to attend the training.
