What’s Happening – 11/3/19

Dear Camas Ridge Families,

I hope you are enjoying the beautiful start to November we are having and have remembered to set your clocks back an hour as daylight savings time has come to an end.  The weather looks cold again this week.  Please help your kiddo be dressed for the cold days and outdoor recess. 

As we head into conference week, our lost and found is very full.  We will have these items on display in the cafeteria during conferences.  If you are missing a piece of clothing, lunch box or water bottle, please drop by before or after your conference time to see if we have it.

In staffing news, we are excited to welcome Lexy Chipman to the Camas Ridge community.  Lexi will be joining our kindergarten team with a new classroom located on room 9B.  New kindergarten class lists were emailed out on Friday.  We are thrilled to have an excellent team of three teacher and three educational assistants supporting this large group of our youngest students. 

Please pardon our clutter and dust as we have had to make some space changes to make this additional classroom possible.  In this process, we moved Title 1 to 9A, which has been the teacher work room.  What was in 9A has been spread throughout the building and we are still finding places for some of our supplies and equipment.  Our amazing staff has put in a ton of effort to pull this off.  I am grateful for the teamwork.

Classroom teachers are busily preparing for conferences to share your student’s progress, set goals and hear your questions about the year.  We look forward to seeing you in the building this week.

See below for more news you can use.
