This is a reminder that February 17, 2012, is a built-in inclement weather makeup day on our district calendar. Since January 18 was declared a snow day, students will attend school on February 17. For kindergarteners, this will be a regular AM/PM Friday.
In the event that we experience another closure due to inclement weather, the next scheduled makeup day would be May 25. Any additional days inclement weather makeup days would occur at the end of the school year.
Knowledge Bowl will begin practice on February 6, 2012. All participants need to have their paperwork turned in by Friday, February 3, 2012. Knowledge Bowl requires an ASB card, but you are not required to pay a participation fee.
Camas Middle Schools are gearing up to send students to Poland this summer through our Sister City Exchange Program. Our first informational meeting will be held Tuesday, February 21 at Liberty Middle School. Students and families are encouraged to join us in the library at 7:00 PM to hear more about this unique opportunity.
The Sister City Exchange Program has been active in Camas for over 30 years! We have a rich cultural relationship with our Sister Cities in both Japan and more recently Poland. This year, we are excited to take 10-12 students, along with district and parent chaperones, to the southern part of Poland near Krakow. This ten day exchange will provide a rich educational and cultural experience that will not only build positive relationships, but provide a life changing experience for our participating middle school students.
The tentative dates for this year’s exchange are June 21 through July 1. Information regarding trip expenses, travel details and our agenda will be discussed at our February 21 meeting.
We look forward to providing this amazing experience for our students and sharing more about this rich experience!
