Claremont is a distinguished school in large part because of the efforts of so many parents and caregivers who dedicate themselves to providing opportunities to all of Claremont’s students. Come to make sure YOUR VOICE is heard and to find out how YOU can help influence the direction of the school and better support staff and administration in making Claremont effective and fun. Then swing by the Teachers’ Lounge to let them know how much you appreciate them.
