IMG_3423Here are some important dates and information for the week ahead andy beyond at Camarena.

First of all, thanks to the students who wrote such thoughtful and creative notes of appreciation to Mrs. Orr and me on Friday.  (You can see a few of them behind George Washington and Clara Barton in this photo.)  We truly appreciate being appreciated and loved and will continue to strive to make Camarena better every day.  What a wonderful gift!

Lost and Found – We have TONS of clothing and other items “Left Behind” around campus.  Please stop by this week to reclaim that sweater, lunch box, or other personal item that your child may have forgotten.  We will eventually donate items that are not picked up to local orphanages.  Thanks for taking the time to reclaim your property.

Camarena Color Splash Postponed

color-run-californiaOur Camarena Color Splash Run has been postponed until May 31.  We postponed because registration was low (perhaps due to it being Easter weekend). Anyone who registered for the earlier date can either 1) join us on the 31st or 2) contact the PTA for a refund. We apologize for the confusion and hope many more will make plans to join us for this fun event at the end of May.
