Camanche Elementary Newsletter



November 14, 2019



            Odin’s beard! Hulk smash! My spidey senses are tingling and they are telling me the ending is near! Will Ms. McMinimy‘s 3rd grade class stay in first or will Mrs. Low‘s 4th grade class pass them for the win?? And don’t forget Mrs. Hiher‘s 3rd grade class, they are not too far behind in 3rd place.  Ms. McMinimy‘s 3rd grade class won the extra recess last week! Just because something works doesn’t mean it can’t be improved. If you haven’t brought in any items yet, now is the time! Which class Avenger can improve the most? You have one last day to collect your canned goods and/or donations of money to try to get to Thanos first! Captain Marvel once said, this isn’t about fighting wars. It’s about ending them.
