The Read-A-Thon has Begun!

Last year's Read-A-Thon was a huge success. Many of our children jumped reading levels because of all the extra time they spent reading. They also helped raise over $6,000 for Claxton! Because of the success of the Read-A-Thon, for the first time we were able to take all the profits from the Scholastic book fair and give each teacher $160 to buy books for their classroom.

Let's make this year's Read-A-Thon an even bigger success! This week, your child brought home a reading log and a pledge sheet to participate in this fundraiser. If you have misplaced or did not get a letter and these forms, there are more at the front desk in the lobby. As a reminder, the Read-A-Thon ends Thursday, October 24th.

If you have any questions please contact either Joan Best at or Julie Porter-Shirley at
