Clairmont Community School hosts 1st annual student convention

March 30, 2015

On Friday, March 27, 2015, staff at Clairmont Community School (CCS) hosted the school's first annual student convention. One month ago, students were asked to select two choices from a list of workshop sessions. The event began with tons of excitement with students participating in a pep rally in the school's gymnasium, followed by workshop #1. After a short break, students moved on to workshop #2. All workshops were taught by CCS staff.  

Through the event, the staff aimed to build on CCS's ongoing goal to build community and relationships within the school; give students options for choosing their learning; provide students with enriching opportunities; and support the school’s comprehensive student success model.

Workshop options included:
• Cribbage
• Sport taping
• Chess and checkers
• Scrapbooking
• Art
• Singing
• Book covering
• Outdoor pursuits
