Kindergarten orientations scheduled for May 2016


It is time for Kindergarten registration for the 2016-17 school year! Listed below are the dates for registration and orientation events for each school. The purpose of orientation is to meet teachers and staff, learn about the kindergarten curriculum, and take a ride on a real school bus! If you are not sure which school your child will attend, or would like to make a registration appointment, please call 360-833-5410 to speak with Shanna Michelle and Becky Stauffer, district registrars. They will also be onsite at the orientations for your convenience.  You may access registration paperwork online at www.camas.wednet.edu/registration.

Please note: in addition to the registration forms, you will need to submit the following paperwork:

  • State-issued birth certificate
  • Immunization information.  Students must be fully immunized including “kindergarten shots” or an exemption needs to be on file in order for your child to be registered.
  • Proof of residency (2 items), i.e., utility bill, payroll check, signed lease agreement, etc.

Please let us know if you plan to attend the kindergarten orientation.  And if you know of any future Camas kindergarten students in your neighborhood, preschool, etc., please share this information with them.

The referral window for the Camas School District’s Highly Capable Program (HCP) is now open for students in grades 2-6. Parents have an opportunity to refer their children for consideration for the HCP for fall placement. Interested families should review this information to 1) understand the definition and characteristics of students who are highly capable; and 2) learn about the nomination process and actions parents need to take by December 15, 2015, to refer students for this process.

2016 Bond Listening Posts

In early 2015, a Facilities Advisory of Citizens, Teachers, Staff and Students (FACTSS) met to research and study current and future facilities needs in the Camas School District. Based on their findings and community input, the FACTSS team has recommended a Capital Facilities Bond be placed before voters in February 2016.

Come hear about the proposed bond and give us feedback at one of three listening posts!
