SHHHHH, top secret TEACHER APPRECIATION digital extravaganza!!!

Our Camas teachers are incredible and have been working so hard to make our kids’ distance learning experience meaningful and fun! Let’s THANK THEM!

Download the I love my Teacher Image and let your kids color it in and fill it out. Or, make your own teacher appreciation sign or message of any kind to share in seesaw – teachers love to hear from your kids!

Then, send it to your teacher:  POST TO SEESAW ON MONDAY.
Let’s thank our teachers and get next week off to a great start!

Fun Interest Groups! Let’s connect some kids!
The PTO is encouraging parents to share the activities your kids love with the greater Camas community – on Zoom or other similar tool. This is a fun way to meet new kids and adults in our community and connect our kids to others who enjoy the same stuff! Some ideas: Lunch Together, Lego Together, Draw Together, Knit Together, Read Together, Talk about Robots Together. Anything you’re already doing could be shared with the community. Your PTO and Principal Kevin will help! Email us and we’ll share your event!
