Food Drive
Congratulations to Mr. Bussoli's Intro to Business 10 and Business 140 students.  They are the winners of the Block 1 food drive competition, bringing in just under 1900 food and drink items.  Thank you to everyone who participated throughout the school.  The Mustard Seed was extremely appreciative of the overwhelming number of donations.  In total, Claremont raised 2181 kg (that's 4808 lbs) of food to help out  many needy families in our community.  That is awesome Spartan Spirit!!!

The cc350 enters its fifth year on FRIDAY, May 9th. From cyclists to longboarders, zero emisssion warriors will go 350 laps around Claremont's track for a total of 140km to raise money and awareness about climate change initiatives. Any students, teachers or members of the community are welcome to help us continue the tradition. Students must receive permission from subject teachers to miss classes.  
The event itself begins at 8:30am with registration, and wheels hit the track at 9am. There will be coffee and baked goods available for purchase in the morning, and food is available at lunch through the Mexican food truck, and the Grillverado will be on hand, thanks to the rugby team.
For more info contact Mr. Neufeld at mneufeld@sd63.bc.ca

Congratulations to the 26 rugby players who were away in Ottawa last week. They were excellent ambassadors of Claremont. Aside from forging strong friendships with their host families and seeing some amazing sights, they also played some outstanding rugby. The boys went 11-0 in their games out-scoring their opponents 343-50. Both the senior and junior teams won their respective divisions at the Woodroffe 7's Tournament.  This THURSDAY after school we are hosting both the city Junior and Senior semi-finals. Spectators would be very welcome!  Go Spartans!
