Week of March 4-March 8


Our Spring Parent Teacher Conferences begin Thursday, March 8 and end Thursday, March 16.  Please make every effort to attend the scheduled conference to discuss your child’s progress.  Our teachers and students will share very important information and you will have an  opportunity to ask questions about your child’s progress this school year.  For more information about Parent Teacher Conferences please click on  CONFERENCES.

Please remember that all 1st-6th grade students are dismissed at 1:45 p.m. throughout the conference schedule.  Kindergarten students will attend from  8:15 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each day from March 9 through March 16.  Please make appropriate arrangements for pick up with our modified schedule.


You can support teachers and students by purchasing books at the book fair this week, March 5-9.
The Scholastic Book Fair offers a great selection of engaging and affordable books at every reading level. The profits of the fair will go directly back to Camarena classrooms and our library. Don’t forget to stop by this week!


Staff and parents received emails this week encouraging them to participate in the “Star” phase of the Spring 2018 ThoughtExchange community engagement. This phase allows participants to review the thoughts of others and add “stars” next to the ones which align to their thinking. This process helps us, as a school and district,  have a better understanding of the issues and priorities. The “Star” phase will close March 16. Community members and students have an opportunity to self-register via the district’s website to participate in the “Star” phase by clicking here.


April is the Month of the Military Child. This awareness month was established to underscore the important role children play in the Armed Forces community. This week we will begin planning for our month of activities to honor and celebrate our military families.  If you would like to participate in the planning, please join us on Thursday, March 8 at 8:30 a.m. or 5:30 p.m. in the multi-purpose room.


As school districts refine and enhance safety procedures, national movements are also taking place to address school shootings, whether through increased gun control, mental
health funding, or both. National groups and other organizers are also encouraging “students, teachers and their allies” to walk out of schools in March to protest gun violence.

In Chula Vista, we are hosting a school safety forum at 6 p.m. Monday, March 12 at Enrique S. Camarena Elementary School in collaboration with the Chula Vista Police Department.  A flyer will go out next week with additional details. If you have middle or high school age students, you may also be interested in attending a school safety forum at 6 p.m. Monday, March 5 at Chula Vista High School.
