Grade 11 Numeracy Assessments

Reminder for all grade 11 students to check the exam schedule to find out when your Numeracy Assessment is scheduled. 
TODAY is the last day to sign up at the office for an alternate time to write your numeracy assessment due to either a conflict (if you have another exam schedule for the same time) or as a walk-in (if you did not have a grade 11 math class this year).

Exam Week
The exam schedule is posted on the Claremont website.  Please triple check your exam times and be sure to bring all appropriate exam supplies with you: pens, pencils, erasers, and calculator.

Request for Exam Week
Royal Oak Middle School would like to remind Claremont students that our Exam Week is for studying and writing exams... not for visiting your former middle school teachers.  Please respect ROMS' request and stay away from their school during exam week.

After School Support
After school study support will continue this week, TODAY and WEDNESDAY.

Home Room(s)
Small change of plans: 
There will be a brief home room TODAY at the end of Block 2; students will report to their home room to get overdue notices and then go to their lockers for clean-out.  Please return any overdue books to the Learning Commons.
There will be another brief home room TOMORROW (Wednesday) at the end of block 3 for students to receive their TIMETABLES for next year.

World Refugee Day Play: TODAY
Tomorrow is World Refugee Day.  Please come to the Ridge Playhouse TODAY at lunch to see a new play about this important topic. We are the only school in the CRD that is having this play performed for them; the play is written and performed by newcomer, immigrant and refugee youth and is FREE!

Claremont Keychains
There are a few Claremont keychains left, made on a 3D printer by our very own student, Braiden! They are only $5 and are for sale in the Office.  These are a fun keepsake for students and they also make a great gift.
The keychains remaining are:
Sports: badminton, basketball, rugby, soccer, volleyball, and Coach.
Interests: IGS, Drama, and Science

Learning Commons Book Return
A pirate ship has taken over the Learning Commons! Renowned pirate Captain James Book is requesting that outstanding books be returned by June 15. Any landlubbers with clear library accounts by the end of the month may receive a special surprise. Stay tuned and get those books back!

Yearbooks will be distributed again TODAY at lunch at the Spartan Store.  There is still time to buy a yearbook; please see Ms Marshall in the Accounting office. $45.
