GRAD 2019
Dry Grad Meeting – May 7
Invitation to Grade 11 Parents

The 2019 Dry Grad Committee would like to invite grade 11 parents to come observe and learn what it takes to put on this event. For over 15years, Claremont parents have been hosting dry grad and we feel this would be a great opportunity to gain insight into the preparation and planning it takes to make this so much fun.  We have been fortunate to have on our committee a number of parents who participated in prior years events and their knowledge has been invaluable. Please join us on Tuesday, May 7th @ 7pm in the Learning Commons.

The deadline has been extended. Registration packages are being accepted until May 10.  We have an amazing all night event planned for our Grads. For details about the event, go to the Claremont website, click ‘Parents’ and the ‘All Night Dry Grad’.
