This is Camptonville School with announcements for the week of October 29th.

Friday’s observance of Unity Day was a special opportunity for our students to let each other know that they want a school where students treat each other in kind, caring, and considerate ways. Thanks to all of the students, including our leadership team, 1,2,3 Grow, parents, and staff who participated! 

Our Halloween costume parade starts at 1 pm on Tuesday, October 31st. You are welcome to join us or wave from the route, as we walk past the Forest Service and turn at Burgee Dave’s to come back to school. Beginning shortly after lunch, students will be able to change into costumes. Following the parade, students will be rotating through activities in each classroom until 2:45. I would like to request that students keep Halloween candy at home after they go Trick-or-Treating. There are a number of reasons for this request, and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

On Wednesday afternoon, all students will have the opportunity to take part in the Power of One Assembly. We look forward to hosting this entertaining group and hearing their powerful message.

Cross Country practice will take place after school on Monday from 2:45 to 4 pm. The meet this Thursday, November 2nd takes place at Seven Hills School with the 4th grade race beginning at 3:30 pm. I will be transporting team members needing a ride to the meet in the van. Parents will need to pick their children up at the meet unless other arrangements have been made. 

If you or anyone you know needs a little support with food, toys, or other gifts this holiday season, the Salvation Army is offering help. All you need to do is call the Resource Center at 288-9355 between October 30th and November 3rd, and they’ll help you fill out an application and find out what documents are needed.

The first trimester ends next Thursday, November 9th. Please look for parent-teacher conference notices to come home soon.    

Thank you for your support and have a wonderful evening. 

 

 

This is Camptonville School with announcements for the week of October 22nd.

Welcome back from Fall Break. I hope that you all had the opportunity to spend some special family time. Before the break, we talked with students about October being Bullying Prevention Month. I admit that this is an area where many school leaders that I speak to, including myself, struggle with a cycle of bullying that in many cases has been present over several generations. Simply put, bullying is the use of control by those who have power to intentionally hurt others. Power can take many forms such as popularity, wealth, intelligence, or strength and methods of hurting others often include exclusion, put downs, threats, harassment, and physical or emotional aggression. We would like to invite students, parents, and staff members who would like to participate to come together at lunch on Friday, October 27th to promote Unity Day. It is a way to show that that you want to see kindness, inclusion, and empathy promoted on our campus. If you have an orange shirt, wear it that day, but if not, we will provide you with accessories to show your commitment to improving our school culture!

The Site Council Meeting scheduled for Monday, October 23rd has been postponed until November 6th at 3 pm.

Our first Cross Country practice will take place after school from 2:45 to 4 pm this Tuesday, October 24thOn Wednesday, the first meet will be held at Lyman Gilmore and the 4th grade race begins at 4 pm. Mrs. De Maranville will be transporting team members needing a ride to the meet in the van. Parents will need to pick their children up at the meet unless other arrangements have been made.  

Camptonville’s School Board meets this Wednesday, October 25th at 6 pm. The agenda is posted and the public is welcome to attend!

We will be holding hosting a costume parade and Halloween party for the students on Tuesday, October 31st. Beginning shortly after lunch, students will be able to change into costumes. Look for more information to come home in your child’s classroom newsletter.
