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

Tune in for a fun and easy way to support Claxton!!! While water station volunteers are passing out cups of water and gatorade at the AVL Half Marathon on Saturday, June 9th, we will be earning $1,000 to support Claxton! Volunteers will 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!

A Note From the Library

All student library books must be returned back to the library by Friday May 25th. This gives the library staff enough time to complete inventory and check the status of our collection. We want to be sure all of our amazing books are in good shape and ready to be enjoyed again next school year!


Please watch for yellow overdue notices to be sent home with students every Monday and Thursday until the 25th. We currently have over 750 books that are overdue. If your child’s library book has been lost, please send in payment for the replacement of the book. Payments can be submitted by cash or check made out to Claxton Elementary School.


If you have any questions or concerns feel free to call Ms. Brown or Ms. Powell at 828-350-6504. We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring that our library has wonderful books available to our eager readers for years to come!

Support ACS Family

Many in our community had ties to the recent shooting victims, and as we collectively grieve this loss, we wanted to share a way that the Claxton community can provide support. Donations to benefit Erica Smith's surviving family members, including her two elementary school-age children, can be given to Eblen Charities. To make a donation visit the Eblen Charities website and click on the donate button. Please make sure to set the designation tab (found at the bottom of the page) to the Erica Smith Family Fund. We appreciate your support.
