Parents of Incoming 6th Graders,
Hopefully you and your child(ren) have been able to enjoy some much needed time off already. It won't be long before summer is gone and the kids are right back in the swing of school!
Camp Camel, scheduled for August 9th, is an orientation program for incoming 6th grade students. Students spend the day from 8:30-3:00 at CCMS learning about a variety of topics that will help them to be successful during their 1st year here. Most importantly, Camp Camel gives them an opportunity to meet students from the other elementary schools as they all transition into being a "Camel".
Some of the topics covered in the sessions in the past include building tour/PBIS expectations; athletics/extra-curriculars; dismissal procedures; anti-bullying/school safety/OLWEUS; dress code; attendance; cafeteria procedures; study skills/organization; lockers/agendas/homework; IC/Schoology; basic dance and kickball.
Paper copies of the registration form were sent to the elementary schools to be sent home by the 5th grade teachers prior to school letting out. In the event that you did not receive one, I have attached a paper copy.
We are all excited and eager to meet and work with you and your child this upcoming school year! Enjoy the rest of the summer and hope to see you at Camp Camel!
