If events of last week are any indication, there will be plenty of excitement and learning during our last week of school.  Here’s just a small portion of the events that captured our students’ attention at Camarena last week.

Robotics hardware

Our Robotics team is gathering a nice collection of hardware in just two years of existence.  Congratulations once again to Coaches Stentiford and Lahlum and our Robotics teams from 2013 and 2014.

bearded lizard

Please say hello to Chompers who is on loan to Ms. Hackett’s 3rd grade class.  This Bearded Lizard earns his name by the way he decisively eats cockroaches as a tasty snack – the only appropriate end to the life of a cockroach, in my humble opinion.


5th grade had their day at Biztown this week and learned about the world of business and commerce.  Here is their Newspaper published by students during their day of work.  They definitely came to appreciate the responsibility of careers during this eventful field trip.

Drop off perfect

Many thanks to the parents who cooperate so wonderfully during drop-off and pickup.  Here you see the perfect example of folks who move all the way forward in the yellow to make room for everyone.  Thanks again for not leaving cars unattended in the loading zone … EVER…  Use those parking spots if you need to walk your child inside.  Also, can I remind everyone that Camarena was built for walkers?  Join the many families who enjoy a brisk morning walk to school and avoid the parking lot altogether.

standing on head

Just love this young man’s commitment to reading.  He is literally doing a handstand to read his narrative.  I’m sure the extra blood flow only helps comprehension!

snowballSnowball Fight!  Here is one of our scenes from the Wonderful Winter Wonderland this past Friday.  A big shout out to the PTA leadership, parent volunteers, teachers and staff who ALL contributed to a successful evening of fun and fundraising.  We got the perfect window of weather to enjoy the activities and the silent auction was a huge success.   What a caring and supportive community Camarena is!
