"Toys For Teens" – Claremont Edition

In order to support those in need this Christmas, Student Government is asking Claremont students to donate gift cards for teenagers.  Here at Claremont, we are continuing with this annual initiative that will look to help those who sometimes get overlooked at Christmas: teenagers.  Please bring in a $10 or more gift card to your Block 1 class and give it to the teacher.  When thinking of a type of gift card, please think of a place where teenagers would appreciate getting such a gift card.  Whichever class raises the most value on their gift cards will win and get a chance to appear on the Zone 91.3 Toy Drive show on Friday, Dec 16th in Block 1 and make the donation on behalf of the school.  Please bring in a gift card to your block 1 class!  The Challenge is on, Quested and Bussoli!

On THURSDAY, December 15th from 5:30 to 8:30pm Claremont students, parents, alumni and teachers will be going out into different parts of the community to collect canned foods and non-perishable food items to give back to the less fortunate. We hope to see you participate in this important event and show our community you care. To join “10,000 Tonight”, come to the lounge any day at lunch time and sign up. See Mr. Plant or a Senior Leadership student for more info.
