     Just a reminder that there is NO SCHOOL on Thursday, March 29th, Friday, March 30th, and Monday, April 2nd for Spring Break.


     Camanche Elementary School and Kids First! Academy would like to invite parents to our 4-year-old preschool parent meeting. Children who will turn 4 on or before September 15th qualify for free preschool. The meeting will be on April 12th at 5:00 in the elementary school library. We will give you some insights regarding our free preschool program and hand out applications for the 2018-2019 school year. If you are unable to attend applications will be available at Kids First! Academy.


     Conferences were a huge success! Thank you for your partnership. Great things are accomplished when everyone is working together for the success of OUR students. Please do not hesitate to contact any of us, at anytime, to support your child’s needs.


     Thursday, March 22nd from 5:30-6:30 p.m., you will have an amazing opportunity to learn about 37 notables. You will find out which notable marched for 250 miles and which notable had a very difficult childhood but is now quite successful as an adult. You will also find out what character Walt Disney created first. Hint: It is not Mickey Mouse. Please come to the elementary gym and see the wonderful displays created by some of Mrs. Kennedy’s third and fourth grade students. Participating students are:

Avery Davis,  Sadie Johnson,  Elliot Boonstra,  Jillian Pfohl,  Kady Dunnett,  Josie Srp,  Easton Steffes,  Lily Horner,  Bently Nelson,  Jenae Matyasse,  Harper Hoge,  Olivia Harridge,  Jayda Clements,  Madelyn Skoff,  Bobby Evers,  Olyver Fuller,  Wes McDanel,  Brooklyn Quick,  Zoey Duhme,  Josh Liles,  Camryn Schnoor,  Braden Davis,  Hayzel Fuller,  Mason Toepfer,  Ty Stone,  Ayden Kastel,  Calie Waltz,  Clara Harrington,  Kylr Adrian,  Sydney Hansen,  Tyson Graves,  Braxton Laurion,  Lucy Hullinger,  Josh Hagemeier


     Thank you to everyone that purchased raffle tickets during conferences for the gift baskets our 4th grade classrooms put together! The fundraiser brought in over $400 for the 4th grade field trip to the Field Museum in Chicago this spring. Thank you again for your support!


     Our attendance is currently 96.12%. We as a school have set a goal of 97%. Thank you for working with us to reach that goal, EVERY DAY matters.
