Giving Thanks

On this Thanksgiving Holiday CAM High School has a lot to be thankful about:

1) A great student body with supportive, active parents.
2) A wonderful staff who will work with anyone.
3) Opportunities in all subject areas for students to excel.
4) A progressive minded community with energetic leaders.

As we move forward in a number of areas we all are thankful for the communication and support we receive as a staff.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Technology update

Before conferences I sent out a letter encouraging everyone to come to conferences and that there would be documentation about the laptops available to sign. Well, as many of you asked and a lot of you figured out on your own that the documentation was not available, or ready for you to sign.

Right now the laptops are in classrooms and are being used by teachers there, but they are not available for students to check out. Teachers are sharing them to ensure that they have enough to use when needed while we try to finalize how and when the students get to check them out, or for the juniors, have them with them at all times.

We will have a meeting of all junior parents about their 1 to 1 laptops and information will be sent home to be signed about those that are being checked out by the other students. Students have been and will be trained on proper use and procedures involving the laptops as well during Homeroom time.

I appreciate everyone's patience, especially the students, in this matter as we have several network and paperwork issues to clear up before we can get parents together and roll them out to students.

At the very, very latest they will get them to start 2nd semester, but we're hopeful its after Thanksgiving.

CAM's definately got talent!

Anyone who made it to this year's variety show, "CAM's Got Talent", held Nov. 2 and 3 found this out.

This every two-year event was an enormous hit and everyone involved did their part to make it very entertaining.

I could start naming off each act, but I'm sure I'd leave someone deserving out.

What I don't think everyone knows is most of the acts in the show are developed almost exclusively by the students. With guidance from Mrs. Nichols watchful eye of course.

With that said I just want to congratulate the students, sponsors, teachers, parents and volunteers for pulling off another amazing event.
