Support Claxton through Extended Online Auction Happening Now!
Did you miss the 2019 “Night at the Museum” evening celebration & auction? Or maybe you attended but did not win anything? You can still support Claxton through our extended online auction!
We have new items (some starting at $5), a few repeat items, and fund-a-need items. 5th grade parents, we need your help supporting the drum residency program--sponsor a $60 drum for a student!
Please view these online auction and fund-a-need items and consider supporting Claxton through this virtual auction. The auction is open until Wednesday, April 10 at 7pm. We appreciate your support and generosity!
We need YOU! Looking for Leaders for CLX PTO for 2019-2020 School Year
We are ALL a part of the PTO! Without all of us, there would be no "P" (parents) and "T" (teachers/staff) to make the PTO! We invite you to consider stepping up for a committee member or leadership role with the Claxton PTO! We are planning for the 2019-2020 school year, and we are looking for your awesome ideas and talents to help make all of our exciting opportunities at Claxton possible. No experience is necessary; you only need to bring enthusiasm and dedication to helping Claxton become the best it can be! PTO positions are open to all parents or caregivers of Claxton students. We're working on role descriptions and will include that info in the Buzz soon! If you are interested in exploring a role or two or if you have any questions, please reach out to Miriam Scott (Claxton Volunteer Coordinator) at email@example.com or (828) 419-0327.
