Join Claxton in honoring Will Hornaday at ACSF event on March 21st!

Will Hornaday recognized as Claxton Elementary’s Parent Champion Volunteer March 21st!

Will Hornaday exemplifies an exemplary male parent at Claxton who has connected other fathers to the volunteer network with the development of the “Bear Pack”. Will has gladly volunteered to serve on the PTO as Chair of Yearbook for 2 years, offered his graphic design services “pro bono”, and served as a room representative in his son’s classroom. He always signs up to volunteer for school events, organizes the efforts of the Bear Pack, and delivers the MANNA food bags to our students in need EVERY WEEK! He is overall a great guy, with a passion for public education.

The Asheville City Schools Foundation will honor exceptional leaders of the Asheville City Schools district at the annual Celebration for Champions, to be held at The Venue on March 21st, in downtown Asheville at 6:00 pm. Celebration for Champions is the Asheville City Schools Foundation's signature annual event that raises money for the Foundation's cornerstone programs. The Celebration of Champions award encourages individuals and organizations to engage with city schools and recognize the value a thriving public school system provides for the whole community.

« You can learn how your child and Claxton benefit from the work of the PTO.
« You can learn how to volunteer your time, on campus or off, to positively impact the learning experience of all students at Claxton Elementary School. 
« PTO meetings bring together the home and the school so that parents and teachers may cooperate in the education of our children.
