Kudos and Heartfelt Congratulations!

Our own Tracy Dew was nominated for and will receive the award for ACSF's Parent Volunteer Champion for 2012-13!!  If you aren't familiar with the work Tracy does on behalf of Claxton students, let us assure you that this is an honor truly earned and well deserved.  

Tracy works with our school social worker, Mark Ackerman, and counselor, Dee Dee Allen, as the driving force behind the Claxton Family Night program at Pisgah View apartments.  She also coordinated the Christmas sponsorship program for families in need this year, ensuring that Claxton students and their families facing financial hardship got to celebrate a holiday filled with gifts, generosity and happiness along with everyone else. 

Tracy's efforts at Claxton underscore and demonstrate that Claxton really is a community as well as a school.  She creates opportunity for all of us to participate in the success of all of our students, proving that we can accomplish great things together.  

Please plan to attend this year's Celebration of Champions on Sunday, April 14 to help the Asheville City Schools Foundation honor Tracy and all of the volunteers who do so much for our schools and our students.  We'd love to have a great Claxton representation there for this extra special event!

Again, Congratulations, Tracy!!!
