News and Announcements
Hope weekend went well for all.
First – want to congratulate and thank all guys and families for their help and contributions in the Toys for Teens drive held at the school. Not only did we meet the $10,000 goal as a school but our sr lacrosse guys (with help from the jr guys) won the contest for the class/group whom raised the most. Well done!!!
The last week before the break includes field trips, fun traditional xmas activities, and a little bit of fitness. Reminding guys to know the schedule and where and when to be for all days and that attendance this week for ALL classes is important.
Mon jr guys are going for a fun swim and all were told a couple times last week. Just like when we are at the turf please drop your son off at the pool for 8:50ish and I have arranged a bus to take all back to the school at 10:00. I’ll be at the school for the morning if there are 4 or 5 that need rides
Pirates is scheduled for Wed, staff Skits are Fri as well as field trips and other activities.
Looking forward to the break!!!
The NHL scouts were not out oddly enough…

Please see below about the current Toys 4 Teens campaign going on at Claremont for the holidays. Have talked to sr team about partnering up for $5 each to get a card and contribute close to 25 cards as a team. Any contributions from any player would be appreciated.
As well, thanks to all who bought tickets/donated at Friday Night Lights, the lacrosse program is proud to have raised $1,000 for KidSport.
Our annual Toys 4 Teens Donation Drive is on from Nov 27-Dec 12. Claremont donates $10 Gift Cards to Teens in need in our community. We join in on The Zone 91.3’s Toy Drive which gives to the “Christmas Giving Network,” a group of local agencies in Greater Victoria such as CFAX Santa’s Anonymous, St Vincent de Paul, The Mustard Seed, Salvation Army, Times Colonist Christmas Fund and many more.
Please help donate towards our school goal of 1000 gift cards and help a Teen in our community. Gift cards for food, clothing, personal items, school supplies, etc. are welcomed. Our hope is that every student and staff member donate 1 gift card each. These will be collected in Block 2 classes or at the front office.
Thank you for your support. Happy Holidays!
The 12th annual Spartan Shootout came to a close Sat at 6:00 and I think safe to say that it was a successful weekend both on and off the field – 16 games in total were played by Claremont teams and only one blemish thru all games and against a very good club team from Coquitlam.
Friday Night Lights was a big success for both the game and the ‘event’. Was fantastic to have so many involved from a school perspective with staff and students.Huge thanks to Mr Plant and the rest of the staff that helped make the event, the dancers and Ms G, as well as all the students. Was also a very good game and good win against a very good team from Mercer (and thx to them for their patience and willingness to participate in the game once again).
Was a wonderful way to honour our gr 12 players and their parents – we are very proud of them and all of their play that evening was a tribute to 4 years of hard work. A pic is attached of our graduating players. Hope that parents and players enjoyed the pre game festivities as well as the game itself. Was a fantastic effort by all gr 12’s.
Huge thx to all parent volunteers – makes the tournament run and is a critical part of our hosting of the tournament. Special thx to Joni Philips for her help with UVic fields. I don’t want to miss any and appreciate the help, the sponsorship, the program, etc from all but…do want to recognize 3 ladies who continue to be integral components to a successful tournament. Once again thx to Caroline Mace for her amazing work organizing all the volunteers and jobs and two ladies who’s sons have graduated and do the work without having children in the program – thx to Michelle Glanfield for her work on the program and Cheryl Brown for her work with sponsorship and the organization of Friday Night Lights.
