Our fifth grade students have been working hard to get their STEM Garden ready for planting. We couldn’t have made this garden possible without the generosity from one of our local businesses, a community member, and employees in our district. Farm Bureau donated the materials used by Bradley Hall’s students to build planter beds. Michael LaSala provided our topsoil. ECSS Instructional Coach Samantha Keyfauver was a key person in making our garden a reality. The fifth grade class is grateful for this opportunity and we are excited to see our garden flourish.

After four years of leading the Tigers, Tony Welch is leaving Claxton, a Class A public school football program that he led to the state playoffs the last three years. Before returning to his hometown of Claxton, Welch was the head football coach at Savannah High and Memorial Day School leading both programs to the state playoffs. Welch’s record at his alma mater was 20-23 (.465%) with the Tigers making the playoffs three years in a row. Under Welch’s leadership, ten players have signed letters of intent to play football at the next level.According to Claxton athletic director Mark Stroud, “In four years Coach Welch has brought Claxton football to a new level and we appreciate everything he has done and wish him the best of luck with his new adventure”. The process for selecting a new head coach will begin immediately. "Building on the firm foundation established by Coach Welch, the district will be seeking a candidate who is experienced, attuned to community, and seeking to build character as much as a winning record."

On Monday, March 22, 2021 State School Superintendent Richard Woods visited Claxton Elementary School and the site of the new Claxton High School. His staff scheduled the visit back in January. Superintendent Woods has made deliberate efforts to connect with school districts, especially in rural areas. Members of the Board of Education, Dr. Waters - ECSS Superintendent, District Administrators, Dr. Costlow - CES Principals, and several CES staff members greeted Superintendent Woods. After a few opening comments, Mr. Woods toured the newly renovated CES and visited several classrooms to observe instruction, the new STEM Collaboratory and academic interventions. Superintendent Woods presented all 4th grade students with a signed copy of a book containing the US Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Pledge to the American Flag, the Star Spangled Banner, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's "I Have a Dream" speech. His visit to the new high school included an overview of the project, an explanation of the new Evans Region College and Career Academy and conversations about connecting education and workforce development during a walking tour of the new facility which is scheduled to open in July. He concluded his visit with commendations to the Board of Education and District Leadership for establishing a strong vision and strategic plan for the district. In addition, Superintendent Woods expressed his appreciation for the hard work of all teachers, support staff, and school administrators for the commitment during the Covid pandemic. He reassured all that he and his staff would maintain an open door and servant attitude in supporting public education. Dr. Waters presented Mr. Woods with a basket of local products provided by Director Tammi Hall of the Claxton-Evans Chamber of Commerce.
