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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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! If you would like to send a note of appreciation or an email you can send it to school and we will forward it to the District Office for a celebration planned on January 27th.
The Woodburn community came together to create a festive event. Titled “The Colors of Winter,” this original program of music and movement was inspired by the beauty of winter and performed by the fifth grade classes at Woodburn Elementary School on December 12. Students celebrated the first snow with hula hoops, scooters, and scarves.
