Believe it or not, there are just four weeks left until the end of the school year. There are lots of class and school events to follow to finish strong so stay tuned to this site and your child’s class blog for updates and information. Here are a few to keep in mind.
The Camarena Color Splash Run is just 19 days away. Enrollment has picked up as we have over 200 runners ready to take on the 5 K challenge. We will be notifying our 30 Padre ticket winners early this week. You can always register online. We will also have after school sales this Wednesday from 2:30 to 3:30 where you can pay with cash or credit card.
Our students are also preparing for the Gallery of Experts. Be prepared to come join us for the afternoon/early evenings of May 27, 28, 29. See your teacher for more details to get the grade level date and time of the student presentations. Here is an example of what you will see with 5th grade’s announcement about Simple Machines.
Recently, an organization teaching Lacrosse has started up a Thursday afternoon program. You can find out more information here: Lacrosse
We are fast approaching the final weeks of this 2014-15 school year. Here are some big events to put on your calendar.
Sign up for the Camarena Color Splash by this Wednesday, May 7 and you will be entered into a raffle for Padre tickets. 30 lucky families will win 4 tickets to an upcoming Padre game and everyone who signs up will enjoy the exercise and camaraderie of our inaugural 5K run on the final day of May!
One of our more popular school lunch days is when we get the district BBQ on campus and do some home cooking. Mark your calendars for May 20 and plan on enjoying the good eats.
The Gallery of Experts is our students’ chance to show some of their most dynamic, thoughtful, and engaging work. Be prepared to come join us for the afternoon/early evenings of May 27, 28, 29 and see your teacher for more details for the grade level date and time of the student presentations.
There will be no school on Monday, May 26 in honor of Memorial Day!
It’s time to get off the couch and commit to the Camarena Color Splash on May 31. For every person who signs up for the Camarena Color Splash by midnight Wednesday, May 7, their name will be entered into a raffle to win 4 Padre tickets for games on either May 20 (Twins), May 21 (Twins), or May 22 (Cubs). If you are already enrolled, we will reward the early birds with two entries into the raffle. Once again if you enroll by Wednesday, May 7 midnight you will have a chance to win Padre tickets. There will be 30 families that win as we have 120 tickets total for these three games. FYI – Total value of 4 Padre tickets is $100 and the cost of a family of 4 for the Camarena Color splash is $40. Looks like a bargain to me. And, you don’t even need to enter the whole family. Sign up your child ($10) and you’re in the raffle! Do the math! So, what are you waiting for?
