Planning for 2015-16

We are making plans for our 2015-16 school year and have been asking families to notify us if they have moved or plan to move before the 2015-16 school year.  If any families move from now until the end of the year, they will be able to remain at Camarena through June, however we will not be allowing any Zone Transfers in 2015-16 so that we can make room for all the families that live within our attendance boundaries.  If you have not already provided written notification to your child’s teacher, please fill out this form so that we can plan accordingly.  Thanks in advance for your cooperation.



Tomorrow is Purple Up day for military kids. It was started a few years ago by Operation Military Kids, an organization that is dedicated to military children. During the month of April, purple is a visible way to show support and thank military children for their strength and services. Purple symbolizes all branches of the military as it is the combination of Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine red, and Navy blue. Thank you Camarena for your support of our military kids!
