Mrs. Goodwin and Mrs. White were silly stringed and they will receive pie in the face and the class who raised the most money will have the opportunity to slime the principals next week. Thank you to everyone who helped us meet our goal this year!
A Note from Mrs. Goodwin
I want to thank all of our families and Colt Fundraisers for all of your support during our CES Colt Fun Run. We raised over $20,000 and this will help us pay for our Reflex Math Program and purchase lots of great books for our classroom libraries. We will also use this money to provide school wide incentives for students during the school year. We appreciate all of your support and I also want to thank all of our sponsors. Sponsorships pay for our Colt Fun Run t-shirts, rally towels and all students received a sweat band. It was a great event and we appreciate all that you do for Camden Elementary School.
I also want to wish all of our families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Enjoy the 2 week break at the end of this month and we are looking forward to an exciting 2023 at CES!!!
As always, thank you for supporting Camden Elementary School where we are Galloping to Greatness!

Our CES Library is enjoying some special upgrades, thanks to the successful Fall Book Fair. Students are enjoying a larger, nicer storytime area with new rugs. A new bookcase has been added to our growing Spanish collection. We have also added clear browsing bins to our nonfiction shelves to make our most popular book series and topics more accessible to students. And finally, we added 30 new nonfiction books to our Library! We appreciate your support of our CES Library, and we are so thankful that we have been able to make these improvements to our space and collection. Thank you!
Notes from Nurse Rhonda
Please send your child with an extra set of clothes to school. There are many types of accidents that kids can have that extra clothing at school would be beneficial. Food and drink spills, bloody noses, rips in clothing are some reasons why it is a good idea to keep extra clothing in backpacks.
