NO SCHOOL TOMORROW
Just a reminder that there is NO SCHOOL TOMORROW, Friday, October 9th.
FLU SHOTS – NEXT WEEK!
We will be participating in the Genesis Flu-Free Quad Cities vaccine program for elementary students K-5. Genesis VNA provides this community service to us. The program provides a free flu shot to any student that has parent consent. The clinic will be here at school on Monday, October 12th. Please see the attached information sheet. An ONLINE CONSENT FORM will need to be completed for your student to participate in the program. The online form can be found at: https://www.genesishealth.com/giving/projects--events/flu-free-quad-cities/student-flu-vaccine-consent--release-form/
Camanche Elementary classes will be celebrating fall with a Fall Fest on Friday, October 30th from 1:40-2:10 p.m. Due to current circumstances, we ask that any family wishing to purchase a snack and drink for their student’s pod, to make their purchase through the Camanche CSD Food Service department. Snacks and drinks can be purchased and will be sent to your student’s classroom on the day of the party for just $.70 per student. For example, a classroom pod that has 10 students could have snacks and drinks purchased by a parent for $7.00. All orders are due by MONDAY, OCTOBER 19th. One snack and drink will be allowed per classroom pod and will be taken on a first come, first serve basis. Please watch Class Dojo for confirmation that your student’s classroom has received a snack and drink order. Thank you for keeping our students safe!
QUILT THE TOWN
Keeping You Sewing’s “Quilt the Town” features a variety of quilts and textiles created by local artists of all ages and abilities. The quilts on display include works from students and staff of Keeping You Sewing, antique quilts, members of River Cities Quilting Guild, Material Girlz Quilt Group, as well as from students from other local schools.
Kindergarten through 4th grade students from Camanche Elementary participated in “Quilt the Town” and designed their own quilt squares during one of their art classes! We have 10+ quilts on display around Clinton (mostly 5th Ave South).
The quilts will be on display from: Oct 7 – Nov 22 at River Arts Center, open Wed-Sun 1-4pm. & Oct 1-Oct 31 in area businesses and attractions. Stroll the streets and visit the local businesses and attractions to see beautiful works of textile art. Join us as we “Quilt the Town”.
CES READING COMPACTS
Last year and this year, a group of parents and educators met and discussed our Reading Compact at CES. This Reading Compact came home to your family with report cards. Please sign and send this back to school with your child. We want to develop readers and the love of reading for our students. During this meeting we discussed that reading pictures, partner reading with family members, listening to family members read, and discussing the story all count as reading time. This instills a love of reading.
CES READING GOAL
We are starting our reading challenge again this year. As a school, we have set a goal of 89,400 minutes each month. You can always exceed this goal. We welcome you to challenge yourself! Each month that we make our goal we will celebrate the following month with a reward. If/when we make this goal in October we will have a pajama party on Monday, November 9th.
