Parent Volunteers/Drivers for Next Year
Reminder that all volunteers for School District 63 are required to complete a Criminal Record Check every three years. Sports and trips may start up quickly in September, so we encourage parents to be proactive and do this NOW, if you might be interested in driving, as the process can take a few weeks at rush time. On the Claremont Secondary home page, under Quick Links, find the Parent Volunteers link and follow the steps.
Timetables for 2022-2023
If timetables were not picked up in HomeRoom, they are available for pick up in the office.
There are still lots of yearbooks that haven’t been picked up yet. They are available to pick up from Mr. Howat or our accountant, Belinda Waller. If you still wish to buy a yearbook, you can purchase one at the Accounting office for $45.
Lost and Found Table
There is a lost & found table set up in the horseshoe hallway. Anything leftover on Thursday will be bagged up and donated to a charity.
Text Books & Library Books
All students: reminder to please bring back all of your library books and textbooks to the Learning Commons as soon as you are finished studying for final exams.
We hope by now that all students have emptied their lockers. We strongly recommend that you write down you lock combination and keep it in a safe place so you remember it for September!!
The year-end Exam Schedule is posted on the home page of the Claremont website.
Report cards will be handed out on two separate days, outside at the main entrance of the school. Parents, siblings and family members are also welcome to pick them up:
WEDNESDAY June 29, 9:00-1:00 (4 hours).
THURSDAY June 30, 11:00-1:00 (2 hours)
