Ms. Gebhard's 1st Grade Class
Make Yourself Proud!
On Tuesday this week we will have a number of special visitors from around our school sharing with the first grade students about their special role in the Claxton community. Students will learn more about the responsibilities of each job within our school and how they work together. As we start to look at our Asheville community next, I encourage you to come in and share with our class about your career. If you are available on Oct. 8th, please sign up here. We would love to have a variety of careers to share with students!
