- Claxton Elementary School
On 9/17 our 2-week fundraising program will officially begin on campus, with a Pep Rally. After school your student will come home super excited about the Fun Run!!! Each night we present the students with a nightly challenge where they can win prizes as a group or individually (e.g., Popsicle party)!!!! Your family will try and gather as many pledges as you can and enter them into FUNRUN.com.
This year our goal is to raise $27,000 – this money will be used to help cover the costs of our after school arts programming, playground re-design, food and books for students in need, dances, field trip scholarships, teacher appreciation, supplies for the classroom and so much more.
And don’t forget to save the Fun Run Date—9/27—on your calendar. You’re invited to come out and cheer on our students! The Fun Run will take place at Memorial Stadium (32 Buchanan Place). Grades K-2 run from 9:15- 10:15 and grades 3-5 run from 10:15-11:15. You might want to arrive 5 minutes early to cheer on the students as they walk from the buses to the stadium- it helps get them fired up!
If you would like to volunteer for this event, we need help distributing daily prizes to the classrooms and help at the Fun Run marking laps and handing out water. We need VOLUNTEERS! Please sign up HERE to help!
Thanks so much,
Your Claxton PTO
