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. 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!  

“10,000 Tonight” Event
This 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.

Warm Clothing Drive
YCI is still collecting warm clothes for the Victoria youth shelter until Thursday. If you find yourself with spare or outgrown clothes, they would be much appreciated by people less fortunate. Thanks to all those who helped fill our box last week; maybe we can fill it again this week!
