BATTLE OF THE BOOKS
Congratulations to the Camanche Battle of the Books teams! The 4th grade earned first place in the Virtual Regional Battle of the Books. Members of the 4th grade team are: Kenzie Barrette, Maci Hammond, Wyatt Ohsann, and Cameron Shaffer. The 3rd grade team earned second place in their division. Members of the 3rd grade team are: Addy Coffey, Claire Dunlay, Lily Laurion, and Addy Volz. There were 14 teams from various eastern Iowa schools in the competition. The teams were coached by Sheryl Kennedy.
Please make sure that your student brings a water bottle to school EVERY DAY. The drinking portions of the water fountains are still turned off for safety reasons. The bottle filling portions have remained on and students are encouraged to refill their water bottles throughout the day. Thank you!
We urge parents to send NO toys to school. Toys can oftentimes cause conflicts or distractions that disrupt the learning process. Toys which are expensive or potentially disruptive are not to be brought to school. It is impossible to assure the physical well being of expensive toys in all situations. The following list is not inclusive and is intended to provide some examples of the objects which should not be brought to school: electronic tablets, fidget spinners, laser lights, roller blades, rubik’s cubes, baseballs/baseball bats, radios, music players, electronic games and trading cards. In addition, items which are potentially harmful to others are not to be brought to school. If a teacher allows students to bring toys for a situation such as show and tell the toys must remain in the classroom. Any inappropriate items brought to school will be confiscated and in some cases kept for parents to pick up.
