Saturday Event and Teachers

Wow!  We have almost arrived at our big day for the Camarena Elementary community.  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at Saturday’s PTA Open House.  It should be a lot of fun for the children and families to roam the campus, slide around on those inflatables and learn the name of their classroom teacher.

I want to clarify the expectations regarding teachers at the Open House event.  Many teachers are attending this event, but there are a good number who have personal and family obligations that make it impossible for them to attend given that the date and time of this event was scheduled before any of them were even hired!   Please accept our regrets if you were hoping to meet the teacher that night.  It may or may not happen.  The teachers who are attending will be coming at various times during the three-hour window and mingling with the crowds.  Hey, they may even want to get in line for that big slide!

If you are not able to attend this event to pick up the school information and find out your child’s teacher, please stop by the office on Monday or Tuesday from 8 – 4 to pick up that packet.  The class lists will not be posted around campus as is the habit at some local schools.

Once again, we’re looking forward with great anticipation to the start of the new school year.


Videos Requested

We are in the midst of selecting an incredible group of gifted educators who will be working alongside your children beginning in July.  I would like to introduce those teachers to the Camarena community and I thought, “Why don’t I ask the students to introduce themselves?”  Therefore, I’m asking for any Camarena student who is willing and able to submit a 1-minute video.  Please tell our Camarena staff, “What is unique about me, my family and my community?”    This will help our teachers begin to understand and appreciate the families that will be coming to their doors.  When you have a video ready to send, please send me an e-mail and I’ll invite you to a dropbox folder where you can send the video.  Thanks in advance.
