Toys 4 Teens
We are in the final two days of the 3rd annual Toys 4 Teens Donation Drive.  Please donate $10 gift cards for Teens in Need in your Block 2 class. Winning House receives House Points and the winning class will attend the wrap-up event at Mayfair Mall on Dec. 10. Go Spartans!

High School Christmas Carol
The Year-Long Drama production of “High School Christmas Carol”  continues this week from Dec 9-12 at 7:30pm at the Claremont Ridge Playhouse.  This play updates the classic Charles Dickens tale and sets in a high school where a not-so-nice Meredith (think Scrooge in high school) is acting very poorly.  However, given a chance to see what her life is really like (thanks to some visits from very unique 'ghosts') Meredith is able to see what her actions are really doing.
This play is appropriate for all ages.  Tickets are $10 at the door, but if you bring a non-perishable donation to the food bank, $1 per item will be deducted from your ticket to a maximum discount of $5.  All food will be donated to the Mustard Seed Food Bank.  Please come support the Fine Arts at Claremont!
