Dr. Seuss Week

March 3-7 is Dr. Seuss Week for Lacamas! Students and staff will have plenty to do to celebrate Dr. Seuss. Classes will be reading Dr. Seuss books, making book marks, sharing tongue twisters, and much more. As a whole school we have several days planned to help us celebrate this American author. On Monday we’ll enjoy “Green Eggs and Ham” during lunch. Wednesday, we’ll have fun with a Dr. Seuss Trivia Game during our Character Education Assembly. Also on Wednesday, we’ll show our spirit with a Red/Black/White color day. Finally, to wrap up our week, we’ll end our day on Friday with the whole school reading! So pull out those Dr. Seuss favorites and get ready for a fun filled week!

CEF Auction Chair needed

That’s right – the CEF Auction never sleeps. Believe it or not, preparations for the 2014 Auction are well underway. In fact, the date and venue have already been secured, but one piece is missing: a co-chair for the committee. Or maybe we should say a dynamic co-chairing duo. Three-year alum Mandy Huth has committed to co-chairing this year’s auction in a supporting role, but she needs a person who will take over the reins.  If you have been looking for a good way to get seriously involved in fundraising in Camas, this may be the job for you! See this job description for more detail about what’s involved, and contact Mandy at cefcamas@gmail.com  if you are at all curious.

January is School Board Appreciation Month!

It takes strong schools to build a strong community, and our school board members devote countless hours to making sure our schools are helping every child learn at a higher level.  They make the tough decisions every month and spend many hours studying education issues and regulations in order to provide the kind of accountability our citizens expect.  Please take a moment to show your appreciation to our five wonderful school board members this month!

As a Lacamas community if you want to write a quick note or send in something special we will be sure to get it to our School Board to say “Thank You”.

Help us Celebrate: Lacamas Heights’ 50th Anniversary!

On January 17 the Lacamas community invites you to help us celebrate our 50th Anniversary with two special events. Starting this day of celebration, we will host a School Wide Assembly at 2:30. During the assembly guest speakers will share memories from their years at Lacamas with our current students, while our current students share a special presentation reflecting back. All who attend will be treated to a sneak peak at our movie short, “The Lacamas Story.” This will be a great opportunity to provide our 2014 students with a glimpse into what has made Lacamas the school that it is today.

For our main event, we invite all former students, teachers, and staff to our formal Celebration Reception starting at 5:30. This will be a great time to tour the school, reminisce with former students and staff, reconnect and celebrate the impact that Lacamas has had over the past 50 years. There will be pictures, memorabilia, birthday cake, and the premier of our short film, “The Lacamas Story,” but most importantly, there will be teachers, administrators, staff, and students who called Lacamas Heights Elementary School their school from 1963-2014. We are excited to provide this opportunity to reconnect Lacamas alumni, and hope that you would help us spread the word and mark your calendar for this special event.

You’re invited to help us celebrate as Lacamas turns 50!

January 17: Assembly at 2:30 p.m. and Celebration Reception at 5:30 p.m.
