Magnet Night of Service at CCFB

On Tuesday, April 25th, about 50 Magnet students and staff took a break from preparing for AP tests and showed up at the Clark County Food Bank in Vancouver to engage in some community service.  The team of freshmen through senior students worked together to sort and pack various dry good products for distribution to local families. In the end, we sorted over 31,000 pounds of goods in just under two hours. Thank you, CCFB, for the opportunity to serve the people of Clark County on your behalf.

Magnet Promo Video

The District asked us to come up with a short video that makes use of our students in describing the program, its benefits, whether or not to apply if you’re on the fence, etc.  We asked the questions, the kids answered them.  Here’s our finished product.  Thank you, Magnet student ambassadors for your help with this project!

Much Ado about Ashland 2017!

Friends, Papermakers, Magnetos, lend me your ears!  The CHS MST Magnet program will travel to Ashland, Oregon next September, 2017, to attend performances of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Shakespeare in Love, as well as go on a backstage “multimedia” tour.  We will miss most of Friday 09/22/17, leaving somewhere around 2nd period that day, TDB and finalized in the fall. As usual, we’ll stay at the Ashland Commons Youth Hostel and take over the entire establishment, with the guys in one area, the gals in another.  We should be back to Camas High School by about 11 PM on Saturday night, 09/23. In our exit interviews with graduating Magnet students, this experience is often cited as one of their favorite Magnet memories.  So don’t miss out on this every other year opportunity to see professional live theater in a spectacular setting.

This year we have slots for about 50 students.  A block of about 15 slots will be reserved for the incoming freshmen, with the rest of the slots going on a first-come-first-served basis to other interested Magnet students. The cost is $175/student, which covers transportation, lodging, two shows, and a Saturday morning backstage multimedia tour with actors and OSF staff. We do have need-based scholarships available. Contact Mr. Greene if you’d like to look into this. Payment can be made to the CHS ASB office by check or cash.  You also have the option of paying for this online with credit card (3.5% service fee):  https://wa-camas.intouchreceipting.com/

After you’ve paid for and secured a spot, please download the Ashland Perm Slip and return it to Mr. Greene in room 710 at CHS or via email.
