CAMANCHE ELEMENTARY: ENDGAME OF HUNGER
With great power, comes great responsibility. CES has the power to help fight hunger! Lots of class Avengers are saving the galaxy! Mrs. Low’s 4th grade class is closest to the Thanos and Ms. Mink’s 1st grade class is on their tail in 2nd place. Mrs. Hiher’s 3rd grade class won the first week so they enjoyed an extra recess. Remember, you have until the 15th to bring in your non-perishable food items and/or donations of money. The class that ends up in 1st place wins an extra recess, a special hero treat, and the Food Drive Traveling Trophy! If he be worthy, he shall possess the power to feed the hungry.

CES READING GOAL
Way to go Camanche Elementary! We surpassed our reading goal of 109,000 minutes in the month of October! We read 128,865 minutes! We will be celebrating with a HAT DAY on Monday, November 11th. Thank you for helping support this work!
We hope that you are already reading for the next reading reward! We will have a Luau in the Lunchroom on Monday, December 9th if/when we reach our goal! Keep reading! Like Dr. Suess said, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
If your student is going to be absent, will arrive late, or needs to leave early, please make sure to call the main office no later than 9 a.m. on the day of the absence, tardy, or early dismissal.
Our attendance is currently 97%. As a school, we have set a goal of 96.5%. Thank you for working with us to reach that goal, EVERY DAY matters.
