Week of August 28-September 1

This week is picture week. This year picture day is split over two days and please plan accordingly for your child’s grade-level. All students in kindergarten through 2nd grade will have their picture taken on Wednesday, August 30 and all 3rd-6th graders will have their picture taken on Thursday, August 31.

Our PTA campaign will continue until the end of September. Thank you for all of you who have already joined. If you have not, it is only $10 and will support many amazing events for our students throughout the year. 

Please don’t forget that Monday, September 4th is Labor Day and there is no school. Enjoy the holiday and long weekend!

It is hard to believe that our Parent Teacher Conferences are a few weeks away. Please mark your calendars and plan for our modified schedule.
images-3Conferences begin Thursday, September 7 and end Thursday, September 14.  Please remember that during the conferences all 1st-6th grade students are dismissed at 1:15 p.m. Kindergarten students will  be dismissed at 1:00 p.m  Conference information will be sent home by your child’s teacher, if it has not already been sent home. We strongly believe the parent and teacher partnership is essential for each child’s learning.

We have many wonderful events planned for the rest of quarter 1, please be sure to check out all the happenings for the Camarena community below.
