Saturday Event and Teachers

Wow!  We have almost arrived at our big day for the Camarena Elementary community.  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at Saturday’s PTA Open House.  It should be a lot of fun for the children and families to roam the campus, slide around on those inflatables and learn the name of their classroom teacher.

I want to clarify the expectations regarding teachers at the Open House event.  Many teachers are attending this event, but there are a good number who have personal and family obligations that make it impossible for them to attend given that the date and time of this event was scheduled before any of them were even hired!   Please accept our regrets if you were hoping to meet the teacher that night.  It may or may not happen.  The teachers who are attending will be coming at various times during the three-hour window and mingling with the crowds.  Hey, they may even want to get in line for that big slide!

If you are not able to attend this event to pick up the school information and find out your child’s teacher, please stop by the office on Monday or Tuesday from 8 – 4 to pick up that packet.  The class lists will not be posted around campus as is the habit at some local schools.

Once again, we’re looking forward with great anticipation to the start of the new school year.


July 20 Event

Our PTA is planning a big start to the school year with our Meet the Teacher event on July 20th from 4 PM to 7 PM. At this event, you will be able to get the name of your classroom teacher and many of our teachers will be on campus to meet  their new students.  The PTA has also organized some fun activities which include:

Inflatable World  $15.00 for unlimited play

Food wlll be available from Halphen Red, Chic-fil-A, Tapioca Express, and many more.  It will also be a good chance to sign up for PTA membership and donation.
