Call for Entries: Student Film Festival

Yeah, having your schoolwork posted on the fridge at home is cool. But having a video you made posted on the Camas School District website and screened at the Liberty Theatre in downtown Camas? We think that’s pretty cool, too. That’s why we’re excited to announce the first-ever Camas School District Student Film Festival: a video contest created just for K-12 students, and whose finalists will have their short films shown at the Liberty Theatre. Finalist videos may also be featured on the District website, YouTube channel, and social media pages.

DOROTHY FOX SAYS THANK YOU TO OUR VETERANS

Thank You Veterans

We were honored to welcome veteran dads John Kaiser and Mike LaFors as well as other family members who attended our school assembly on November 12 as audience guests with former military service.  Our theme was how to show our gratitude to the service men and women who have done so much for our country.  First Class Sergeant Aguilar spoke to our students about the meaning of the flag and how they can show their appreciation.  We also are grateful for the support of all military families for their sacrifices.  In addition to celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner, we had songs from the 4th and 5th grade, colors were posted by local Boy Scout Troops and many Fox students wrote thank you cards and letters that will be sent to active service vets in Afghanistan.

‘A Knight of Merriment” 2014 PTA Carnival

Carnival Flier 2014 (Small)Whether thou was a princess or a young esquire, all had fun at the PTA Fall Carnival on Saturday, October 4th . The event was most splendid as kids played medieval games, like jousting, sword in the stone, and other carnival favorites. A juggler entertained families as they feasted while a catapult flung cannon balls to knock down the castle walls outside with the bouncy houses. All Masters and Mistresses went home with prizes, painted faces, smiles, and memories to last.

I know not how parent chairwomen, Mrs. Kidd and her family hath done it again! Thank you to all the Good Lord and Lady volunteers that made the event a success, including lads and lasses from Camas High School.
