****Sharing Tree News – Its that time of year again!

The Camanche Sharing Tree is designed to provide low-income families and/or those undergoing

financial hardships during the holiday season with Christmas gifts and food baskets.  To be eligible you must be within the Camanche School District or attending Camanche Schools.

            This year River Bend Foodbank is requesting that each family complete a Household Income Guideline form to be eligible for the food baskets. Several of the food items included in the food baskets are purchased from the Foodbank.

            If you need our help, please fill out and mail the downloaded form from your email or the school website (www.camanche.k12.ia.us) to Camanche Sharing Tree, P. O.

Please be aware that the 1st lane in front of the middle school is for busses ONLY!   Do not park anywhere in that lane from the corner BY THE STOP SIGN TO THE FRONT WINDOWS OF THE OFFICE. We have parents using the middle lane as asked, then cars go through the first lane and we have students walking across the first  lane to enter the building with traffic passing through, which is a safety issue for the students.  Please do not use the first lane when dropping off your student/s in the morning.

****Reminder to all students: Please do not leave books sitting in the freshman hallway. They are likely to be damaged or stolen. Any books found in this hallway will be returned to the library.


****Events Web Calendar

The All-District Events Calendar is a great place to go to find information about upcoming events happening at Camanche Schools.  Go to the school website (www.camanche.k12.ia.us) and click on the All-District Calendar link.  Athletic schedules, fine arts schedules, plays, facility availability, fundraisers, and school dances are just a handful of what is listed on this calendar.  Changes, cancellations, additional events, etc. are updated on this calendar throughout the year so be sure to check it often.


****Any student leaving during the day due to a doctor or dental appointment or illness must have a phone call from a parent and check out of the office before leaving.  A doctor/dental slip must be returned to the office on your return. Failure to check out of the building or report back into the building properly from an appointment or coming late may result in an unexcused absence.


****PARKING STICKERS – All students driving to school must have a parking sticker and displayed hanging on the rearview mirror facing out.  The parking lot will be checked and violators will face consequences.  The cost is $5.00 and may be purchased in the office with a completed parking permit form from Ms. Pingel.


****A reminder to all students and staff that it is illegal to pass a school bus at any time when the stop sign is out and the lights are flashing.  This includes when they are in the parking lot unloading and loading students.  Failure to abide by this rule will result in a $330.00 ticket.
