What’s Happening September 1 – September 11


Dear Camas Families,

Welcome Sarah Lacey – 5th Grade Teacher
Please join me in welcoming Sarah Lacey to Camas Ridge Community School. Sarah will teach 5th grade in Rm. 1 this year, while Chris Evans is on medical leave. Sarah started her teaching career at Parker Elementary School and has recently moved back to Eugene with her family. We are fortunate to have such a skilled, passionate teacher join the Camas Ridge Staff.
