Camp Road Cougar News
April 7, 2023
When we return from Spring Break, we will only have 36 days of school left. We want everybody to take this week to rest, relax, and rejuvenate and come back on April 17 ready to learn and work hard.
With only 36 days of school left, we want to remind all of our students to stay focused on their assignments, make sure you are turning everything in on time and complete, and studying for your tests. For some of our students these last 36 days will be make or break regarding grades and promotion. We want every one of our students to move on to the next grade level at the end of the year.
I know that every one of our students has the capability to be successful, sometimes all it takes is deciding you are capable and deciding that you are going to put in the work to be successful. I hope that each and every one of our students makes these decisions because that will change the world!

Mental Health Minute
Let Nature Nurture
How can nature benefit your mental health? Spending time in nature has been shown time and time again to be a natural stress reliever. Breathing in the fresh air, soaking up the sun (or dancing in the rain), listening to the sounds of nature, and enjoying the peacefulness it offers can benefit both your mental and physical health. You can even start small - move one meal a day outside, stand barefoot in the grass for a few minutes, do your homework outside, go for a 5-minute walk in your neighborhood, pick flowers, practice your photography and take some nature photos, go outside and throw the ball for your dog, watch the stars (try out an app like SkySafari to identify planets and constellations), do some yoga outdoors, or hang up a birdfeeder and start birdwatching. If you have more time, step up your game and plant a garden or participate in a community garden, go to the beach and meditate to the sound of the waves, build an animal habitat, volunteer for a conservation project, visit a local farm for berry picking, go for a hike, or try geocaching. The opportunities are endless!
School Technology Information You Need to Know...
Students should NOT bring their Chromebook chargers to school. Please charge devices at home each evening. Chargers tend to disappear at school, and we have no way to track them. Students will be responsible for the cost of replacing lost chargers, so please don’t let your student bring the charger to school!
A reminder about the CCSD fee structure for damages and loss of chromebooks:
- Negligent/Accidental Breakage - No charge for first incident per school year $50 per incident for each subsequent event
- Intentional Vandalism - $300.
- Stolen Device - No cost if a police report is provided
- Lost Device - $300
- Lost Charger - $40
