A HUGE THANK YOU to those who donated to our Clayton Cougar Fundraiser!  We raised just over $7,000. We didn’t reach our goal, but we can still do a lot of good things.

Notice the points to the right of the item...those are the points your grade will be awarded for your donation!  Whichever grade wins, get points toward Clayton’s Spirit Bowl!!!


If you come by the school between 2:15 - 3:15, you can say hi to one of our student government students and give them your donation. If you can't make it at that time, stop by any time during the day to drop off your food donation into your grade’s barrel.  Social distancing and face masks are required upon entering the building!
