Open House Volunteers

For all students volunteering at Claremont's Open House, there is an important meeting TODAY at lunch in the Learning Commons. If you have any questions, please see Mrs Wadsworth or Mr Pama.

Best Buddies
There will be an emergency Best Buddies meeting TODAY at lunch in room 312, for all members able to come.

Year-Long Drama

The play, “Up The Down Staircase,” opens TONIGHT at 7:30 pm in the Ridge Theatre.  The show continues to run Thursday Feb 9 @ 8:00pm (to accommodate our Open House), then Feb, 10, 11, and 15-18 at 7:30 pm each night.  This play is both funny and insightful; it tells the tale of a new teacher coming into an inner-city school in 1959, where she is full of hope and the desire to make things better, but finds that making change is never easy. Tickets are $7.50 at the door (no pre-sales).

***NOTE: Due to the weather, a final decision about TONIGHT's show will be made by 5:00 pm.  Efforts will be made to post an update on the Claremont website at that time***

Handbags for Hope

The Key Club are collecting gently used handbags, scarves or jewelry for raising funds for Neuroblastoma Pediatric Cancer Research.  Neuroblastoma is the most common cancer in children under the age of 1. The table will be in the main hallway at lunch every day this week!
