NO SCHOOL FEBRUARY 17TH – PRESIDENT’S DAY
There will be NO SCHOOL on Monday, February 17th in observance of President’s Day.
CLASSROOM PARTIES – TOMORROW!
We will be having our classroom parties on Friday, February 14th from 2:30-3:00. Please follow the guidelines from the Healthy Kids Act. A list of approved snacks is available on our website. Due to food allergies, any items that do not come pre-packaged will be sent back home with the family that brought them. Thank you for keeping our students safe!
JUMP ROPE FOR HEART
Our Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser will run February 5th through February 19th! Students that collect $50 or more in donations will receive a FREE ticket to the Quad City Storm hockey game on Saturday, March 28th and top fundraising students have the opportunity to participate in even more fun at the game! Students that fundraise online also have the opportunity for great savings to Chicago sports! Make sure to check out the flyers that were emailed to parents last week!!
FROM THE DISTRICT LIBRARIAN – CHECK THIS OUT!
Our Scholastic Book Fair is right around the corner! We will host the book fair in our ELEMENTARY SCHOOL Media Center during our spring conferences (1:30-7:00 p.m.) on Wednesday, March 4th and Thursday, March 5th. Watch for flyers to be sent home earlier that week for information on how you can order from home and have your order sent directly to school where we will deliver to your children. Can’t wait to see all of you, and watch the students’ faces light up with the prospect of buying books of their own!
Last week Mrs. Kennedy sent 474 dried up, worn out markers to Crayola so the markers could be recycled. Way to go Camanche Elementary! We are recycling and reusing items instead of just throwing them away. We will continue to collect old worn out, dried up markers. Students can bring markers from home and other places. Crayola pays the shipping so recycling the markers is free and good for our environment!
KINDERGARTEN ROUND UP – NEXT WEEK!
Kindergarten Round Up will be held on Thursday, February 20th from 5:00-6:00PM & Friday, February 21st from 8:30-9:30AM & 10:00-11:00AM. If you have a child that will turn 5 years old on or before September 15, 2020, please call our office to add them to our Round Up list. We can’t wait to meet all of our future kindergarteners!
CES READING GOAL
