We Miss You So Much, We’re Having PARADE! TUESDAY OCTOBER 27!

Dear Camas Ridge Students,We are so glad to see you every day in zooms but we miss seeing your in person, so TOMORROW at 3:00 we are having another parade to wind through the neighborhood and see your smiling faces. We have made an effort to plan a route that takes us down many of your streets or is easy to access by a short walk from your home. Starting at 3:00, Camas staff will leave the school and weave throughout our neighborhoods. For the safety and enjoyment of all, please see below:

  • DO watch from front yards, sidewalks and parking lots along the route, while adhering to social distancing guidelines.
  • DO wear any Camas Ridge gear you have or dress in your brightest, most colorful clothes. Wacky hats, hair and costumes encouraged!
  • DO make a sign or note to wave as the parade goes by if you would like.
  • DO yell, cheer, smile, wave and make an abundance of joyful noise!

Conferences, Resources for Families and More


On October 29th and 30th there will be no school to allow time for our originally scheduled parent-teacher conferences. As we are still very early in the school year these conferences will focus not on academic progress, but on checking in with families on kids’ needs, well-being and help to navigate distance learning. Watch for an email from teachers and our counselor with an opportunity to sign up for a time to meet. Please sign up for a time via the meetingbird link of you’d like to book a time with your child’s teacher.Our counselor, Ms. Jaime, is available to meet during Fall Conferences to discuss resources, emotional support, education connection strategies, etc. To schedule a conference with her, please use this link:

Fall Fitness Frolic!

It’s time for some fall fun Camas families! While we won’t be able to do the Jog-a-thon this year, we are bringing the spirit of the Jog-a-thon to you!

The Fall Fitness Frolic is a fun way for our students to practice gratitude while engaging in getting active and a way to raise some funds for our school. We are raising funds help support our Camas families, engage in community collaborative art projects and a very special virtual version of our famous Camas Art Walk. Our first collaborative community creation will be a beautiful, colorful rock garden in the courtyard at Camas and every child will get to help! Pick up your supplies at our next materials distribution on November 5th.

Principal Kevin will do the jog-a-thon themed portion of the challenge by attempting to run 100 MILES in the month of November. He may even run right by your house! For each mile run Kevin will share what he is grateful for. Families who are able, friends and local businesses will be invited to pledge sponsorship for each mile Principal Kevin runs over the course of November. He will be running all over in our Camas Ridge school neighborhoods and you’ll be able to track his runs and miles each day.

Camas kids will be invited to participate in the Fall Fitness Frolic with Principal Kevin by getting active each day. Students will get a Fall Fitness Frolic activity bingo card from PE teacher Ben and the PTO. Kids will get active and dig into gratitude throughout the month of November and can enter to win fun prizes like a new scooter, a Get Air Gift card and more!

Be on the lookout for more information soon! The Fall Fitness Frolic Bingo cards will be coming soon!
