      We will have an early dismissal on the last day of school at 2:08/2:15! THANK YOU to all of the parents and volunteers that have helped with so much this year! Extra hands, extra eyes, and extra hearts are always appreciated!


     Please mark your calendars for All School Registration on Tuesday, August 7th from 1-7 p.m. in the Media Center at Camanche High School.


      The last day of school is Tuesday, May 29th! The end of the school year has many special events in store such as class picnics, field trips, and track and field days. As we enter into the “home stretch” we ask that all parents encourage children to exercise their best behavior and keep up with their assignments. Classroom behavior and work completion will play a large factor in students’ eligibility to participate in these special events. Thank you!


     Please strive to get your students’ bus fees, book fees, and library fees paid up. Some lunch accounts are also past due. Balances of all students’ accounts will carry over to the following school year. Balances of 4th grade students will carry over to their 5th grade accounts at middle school. All unpaid balances that carry over to the next school year will show as additional amounts owed at fall registration.


     If you have had a change of address or phone number, please remember to contact Camanche Elementary with this new information so your child’s records can be updated. It is imperative that we have your correct information when we mail registration packets over the summer and to insure that you receive district notifications via text message.


     If your child has prescription or over-the-counter medication at school, it will be important to stop in and pick it up before or at the completion of the school year. Left over medication cannot be sent home with students for the safety of them and others. If the medications are not picked up, they are automatically discarded. If you have questions regarding our medication policy, feel free to contact the school nurse.


     School will start for Camanche Schools on Thursday, August 23rd. Students attending the elementary school will have an “intake conference” with their new teacher on their first day of school. This one-on-one time allows students to meet their new teacher, familiarize themselves with their new classroom, bring their school supplies in and put them away, thus alleviating some of the first day of school “jitters”! Parents are encouraged to sign-up for their intake conference time when they register during All School Registration on August 7th. Intake conference day is considered to be an official school day, students unable to attend will be counted absent from school.


     Our attendance is currently 96.24%. We as a school have set a goal of 97%. Thank you for working with us to reach that goal, EVERY DAY matters.
