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.

Elementary Camas Parents and Guardians:

On December 11, your student will bring home the first report card of the year. You’ll notice changes to the report card related to learning standards. Additionally, fourth and fifth grade student progress toward grade level expectations is now indicated using a 4-3-2-1 scale. This is the same scale used in grades K-3.

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.
