¬ GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS
NEW - Treats for sale
Bring your loonies and toonies on Thursday to support Claremont Robotics. They'll be selling chips and candy bags at lunch in the student lounge.
Course Change Forms cannot be dropped off without the student seeing a counsellor. Whether you are requesting to add a course or drop a course, and even if your teacher says you can join their class, you still need to see a counsellor. The counsellors are working hard to accommodate drop-in appointments at this busy time, but it is great if you can make an appointment by seeing Mrs. Watson in the Career Centre (Room 217). Thank you!
