News and Announcements
Monday will be Xmas at Claremont in Oct for the boys so a PE/fitness day. Plan is for lacrosse Tues and Thur this week but weather may impact what we do so…please all students bring cleats and runners each day.
Will be planning to get to turf soon and will give lots of notice.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and good long weekend!
Wanted to say thx to all the guys who were able to make it to the Marathon Sunday morning for marshaling duties. Can’t tell you how many positive comments were made about all of the guys and the great presence they have on Sunday (despite some of the disgruntled drivers and their comments at times!!) and congrats to the two moms and Mr. Hayes for their successful runs (completion is success in my thoughts!!). If there were others I don’t know a job well done. Thx to all the parents for the early morning deliveries as well. Please make sure to bring your VESTS in tomorrow so I can return.
Lacrosse for both classes Tues to Thur this week and Fri will be a ‘PE’ day – a new schedule for the next 6 weeks will be posted this week.
On Fri a group of gr 11/12 are off to San Jose for the Western Kickoff in Santa Clara – permission forms were given out on Friday – please make sure those come back tomorrow (Tues) or Wed at the latest. Further info to come later this week as well as an email that already went out tonight.
Bottle drive – look for a date to be announced for late Oct/early Nov – for now try to save and collect around your neighbourhood.
And….finally, I can say the boys will be getting their Xmas at Claremont this week and will likely be Wed – apologies for delay but…orders were placed in the summer?!?!?
Hope everyone’s weekend was good.
First off, a job well done to the Gr 9/10 class as well as approx 10 senior guys helping out with Cordova Bay Elementary’s Terry Fox Run last Friday. Guys were great ambassadors for the school and cheerleaders for the elementary students.
This week is all lacrosse Mon to Thur. Friday is Spartan Day combined with the Tour de Rock visit so that day is a TBA until we know schedule.

Mentioned last week to all that an excellent start and 2 great weeks of training for Sept. Now as we begin lacrosse the challenge for all players and coaches is to maintain and improve upon the start we have had.
Plan is for lacrosse all week but as always requested, please make sure runners are also in hand in case weather or conditions force us inside (possible tomorrow??).
Hope is to have “Xmas at Claremont” later this week so…for now please use what u have and I’ll make sure all receive the equipment and gear asap.
