     There will be NO SCHOOL on Monday, February 20th in observance of President’s Day.


     Thank you so much for helping Jump Rope for Heart. Just want to remind everyone that the due date for the money and envelopes is February 22nd. Our goal this year is to raise $12,000. We are off to a great start! If you can, please visit It is a fun way to donate and for the kids to send emails. Thank you all so much for your help and donations! Sincerely, Mr. D


     Parents, please stop in the hallway outside of our cafeteria to look through the abundance of lost and found items. Any items that have not been retrieved by the end of parent/teacher conferences in March will be donated to Goodwill.


     This week, Camanche Elementary School is hosting Kindergarten Round-up. We are all so excited to see our new friends and their amazing parents. It is such a pleasure to meet new people and partner with them on their learning journey. As we welcome these children and their parents, I would like to take this opportunity to share with you a few things you can do to help get these future Indians ready to learn when they come to school next fall. Take a few minutes to read this blog post entitled 33 Ways to Prepare your Child for Kindergarten. The author, Jenae is a former first grade teacher, and has plenty more great ideas at her site, I Can Teach My Child. So, take a minute and click around there. With parents and school staff working together, your children will have an amazing school experience and be ready for the real world before we all know it. A great big welcome to the Camanche Schools class of 2030!!


     Kids First! Academy, in partnership with the Camanche Community School District, participates in the Iowa Department of Education Statewide FREE Voluntary Preschool Program for four-year-old children. Kids First! Academy and Camanche Elementary will be hosting Pre-School Round-Up from 5:00-6:00PM on February 23rd at Camanche Elementary School.
