Big Weekend for Camarena Elementary

If you were fortunate enough to join us on Friday night at the Winter Wonderland you benefitted from the combined hard work of our PTA, many parent volunteers, and staff in presenting an enjoyable night of activity, holiday festivities, and student performances.  Thanks to all those parents who donated items for the class baskets and to the wonderful crew of the PTA who planned and coordinated every aspect of this outstanding event.

Also, on Saturday our Robotics team competed in the Southern California First Lego League Tournament at Legoland against 54 teams throughout the region.  They had a great time and performed admirably for a first year team.  They took home a trophy in the category of Most Inspirational Team and their score on the Performance aspect of the tournament was in the top 10 for the day.  All around, Coaches Stentiford and Lahlum are very proud of our dedicated and talented group of scientists and collaborators that make up our Robo Griffin Robotics Team.  Clearly, it was a great weekend to be from Camarena Elementary.  To top it off, the Chargers beat the dreaded New York Giants and that quarterback who will not be named!!!

Gallery of Experts Coming Soon

At the end of 2nd Quarter our students and teachers are preparing to have every student share her best work for this quarter where we have been working on Expository and Informational Reading and Writing.  Our students have gained expertise on subjects in Social Studies and Science and are eager to share their learning with the Camarena community.  Each grade level has a designated time where students will share their great work (see below) then their writing or digital media will remain available for families that are not able to come during the schedule time.  Please make some time to come see what great thing our students are learning and the subsequent products they are creating to explain their newfound knowledge.
