CLASP to honor students, school superintendent at garden reception

Help Claremont After-School Program (CLASP) celebrate another successful year by attending a garden reception honoring CUSD Superintendent Jim Elsasser and the CUSD board of education on Sunday, November 10 from 2 to 4 p.m.

Special recognition will be given to Cathy Stewart, retired CUSD information services coordinator, for her dedicated support of CLASP and its mission.

In five neighborhood programs, CLASP provides safe, friendly and supportive settings for academically at-risk children from all of Claremont’s public elementary schools, so that the students may gain the academic guidance and personal mentoring they need to be successful in school and in life.

The programs offer homework help, recreation, enrichment activities and healthy snacks for two hours per day, three days a week. Transportation is also provided at four of its centers.

Tickets for the fundraising celebration, which will be held at the home of Tim Brayton and Deborah Waas, are $75 each. Names will be on a guest list at the door; no tickets will be mailed out.

To purchase tickets, email news@clasp4kids.org or call (909) 204-0127 by Monday, November 4.
