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.
Prune Hill Elementary
1601 NW Tidland Street
Date: May 25
Over the weekend, one of our own students, Joseph Tuason, constructed and installed a Lending Library at Prune Hill Park (with a little help from Mom and Dad). Joseph’s parents felt that “having a little lending library near our neighborhood would be a good way to promote reading and community spirit”.
What is a lending library? It’s a small structure that allows children to share books with each other that they’ve purchased, read and no longer want in their personal library. Kids can take a book out, with the understanding that they put a book in, to share with others.
This lending library is located in the lower parking lot, near the stairs to the fields. Tuasons have already witnessed a student, Samantha, using the lending library, and are hoping that with spring and summer weather, more children will use it!
There is no ‘check out’ system. Families are encouraged to add gently used books to the library for kids to take what they’d like to read, and replace it with other books if so inclined.
Please remember that Prune Hill Elementary library books belong at school!
Thanks to the Tuason family for their heart for reading and for improving our great community!
*Prune Hill Elementary School is not liable for damage to, nor contents of, the lending library. PHE does not manage the lending library.
Join us for the 2nd Annual Student Film Festival! On March 24, 2016, parents, staff, and citizens are invited to view the film entries at Liberty Theatre in downtown Camas. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and the films will begin at 6:00 p.m. The program is expected to run for approximately one hour. The event is free, and concessions will be available for purchase inside the lobby.
We are all looking forward to warmer (and drier) weather as we move into spring. Below are dates of Prune Hill happenings:
