Mr. Hanson's class is going to celebrate the end of the school year with a breakfast and field trip to Main Event on Thursday, May 19th. The day will start at 9:00 for a breakfast buffet, then from 11:00 to 2:30, the students will be at Main Event (Interstate10 & Warner Road).

It's quite fun, please let me know, if you are interested in joining us, we have space available.

CTP Testing for Camelback Desert School

Camelback Desert School Summer Camp

I've had a lot of parents ask about when can the students do another session for robotics?

The answer, Summer Camp!

I'll be offering a robotics class where we will build, play, and learn all about Vex Robotics. I would love to have 5th grade be part of the camp, and you could sign up for just a week or be in robotics all summer. I'm attaching the website where you sign up. (

Summer Camp goes from May 31st - July 29th, beside robotics class, Camelback Desert School has offered field trips, iPads, creative reading/writing, music, cooking, photography, and sports (including swimming!). I would like to continue to work with my soon to be 6th graders and I really believe they would enjoy this camp. Let me know if you are interested.
