Fun Run – fall fundraiser – coming soon!

fun run imageWe’re raising funds for the Claxton PTO to support programs such as the playground initiative, teacher grants, classroom supplies, A+ Arts Cultural Events, and so much more!

This year’s MAIN FALL FUNDRAISER is the Claxton Fun Run! Hosting a Fun Run means there is no selling or delivering products. Family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of laps your student will run on the day of the Fun Run on October 15th, Thursday during the school day!

Want to help? Sign up here to volunteer at the Fun Run!

NC Public Schools need YOUR voice!

As the budget debates continue, teacher pay, teacher assistant jobs, and textbook funding are all at risk. What can you do?
Attend the Education Forum hosted by WNC for Public Education on September 17th. See flyer below for details.
Our representatives in Raleigh, Rep. Susan Fisher and Sen. Terry VanDuyn have been fighting for public education. Let the others know what we need! Contact a representative below and let them know that our teachers deserve more than $750 pay raise, that we need to maintain our teaching assistants who are vital to our classrooms, and that per pupil spending should meet or exceed the national average!
