Dear Claxton Families:

I am emailing with some information about the upcoming STAR assessment that all Claxton students will take during the month of September. 

Please take a moment to read by letter here. In the letter is a very informative video from Mrs. Peeples, our Instructional Facilitator. She will walk you through what you, as parents, need to know about the assessment and what you can expect on your end as you help your child get set up remotely.

You can also share the video with caregivers who might be helping your child/ren during the day.  

Thank you for taking the time to read the information. If you have questions about the assessment, please reach out to your child's teacher. They will be contacting you with more information in the coming weeks. 

Sincerely,

Mary Nichols
Principal
Claxton Elementary School

Happy Friday!


I am so proud of our Claxton Community! We made it through our first week!  I know we still have a lot to learn and do, but I have a lot of hope after seeing our teachers and students back together again.

I wanted to send you this letter from our Claxton PTO.  We are so grateful for the work our PTO does to support our school community. From community engagement, field trips, and scholarships to teacher grants and supply money, our PTO volunteers ensure our students and teachers have what they need. 

Thanks for taking the time to read what PTO will look like for the coming year. We would love to see new families get involved as well!

Dear Claxton Families, 

Please take a moment to read my letter about the schedule for remote learning. Within the letter is a video where I present the schedule and explain the reasoning behind our decisions.  Thought it is a lengthy video, I hope it will help you prepare for remote learning for the first nine weeks of school.  Additionally, there is a google form where you can comment or ask questions.
