Camanche Elementary Newsletter



November 7, 2019



            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.



            The next Field Trip Fundraiser Night will be at Culver’s on Monday, November 18th from 4:00-8:00 p.m.  Culver’s will donate 10% to CES PTA from their sales. The donation will help the PTA fund some amazing, educational field trip experiences for CES students!  See you there!!



            Scratch Cupcakes will be available for pick up on Wednesday, November 13th from 2:00-5:00 p.m. in the elementary gymnasium. Thank you so much to everyone that participated in the fundraiser!  It was a great success!!



            November Healthy Habits calendars were sent home last week!  Any students that complete at least 20 days of activities listed on the calendar AND return their calendar to school on Monday, December 2nd will receive an extra recess with Mr. D.!



            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.
