Environmental Storytelling

Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

On Earth Day, April 22, Skyridge students in all grades will spend a delightful hour listening to award-winning storyteller Will Hornyak weave his storytelling magic. Will is a master word-smith who captivates audiences of all ages with his original tales, seen through the lens of world conservation and environmental sustainability. His performance is sponsored by a generous donation from Erin Rowland through Clark County Solid Waste.

Check out his website to learn more about him!

It is the Battle of the Middle School Principals!

Come see Aaron Smith, Skyridge Principal, take on Marilyn Boerke, Liberty Principal, in the second annual Camas Iron Chef event! Both teams will include a professional chef and our own variety of local celebrities. This Camas Educational Foundation fundraiser will take place at Camas Meadows on April 27 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $30, and seating is limited. Register online at the CEF web site 

CEF Phone-a-thon success!

The Camas Educational Foundation hosted the 10th annual Phone-a-thon the first week of March. With the help of students from Liberty, Skyridge and the CHS Key Club, CEF raised well over $14,000. Due to the snow days during the event, students may have been unable to reach you. If you would like to support CEF with a donation, you may do so securely on the CEF website

CEF is an all volunteer, non-profit organization that raises money to support curriculum in all Camas schools through teacher grants. Over $25,000 was awarded throughout the schools this February in mini-grants and another $25,000 will be awarded this May in major grants. All thanks to the generosity of people like you.

Hawks place 2nd at regionals

Skyridge Science Olympiad’s Blue team sent a monumental shock wave around Washington State with their surprise 2nd place performance at the SW Regional Science Olympiad Tournament on March 12.  This placement at the tournament earned us an invitation to the State Science Olympiad Tournament on April 16.  We are new to the game, but quickly becoming a legitimate competitor within an already strong arena of veteran Olympians.

In the Spotlight

Satya Harharan, our Geo Bee Building Champion, has qualified to represent Skyridge and participate at the state level of the National Geographic Bee! The State Bee will be held on Friday, April 1, at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma. Good luck, Satya!
