Camp Road Cougar News

Principal's Greeting

Hello Camp Road Families!

A few thoughts:

  1. James Island Charter High School has asked that we share the following letter with our Camp Road Families after some of the events that have occurred at JICHS Football Games. JICHS Letter to Middle School Families
  2. We must work together to make Camp Road a great place for all students to come every day. Our top priorities are student safety and connectedness and providing a rigorous learning environment. Without a positive culture of safety and connectedness we will not be able to provide the rigorous learning environment that our students deserve. And without your support, we will not be able to improve our culture. I thank you for talking with your children about their behavior and academics every day. Open lines of communication between parent, students, and the school is the only way to continue to improve our school culture. It takes a village to raise children and we are happy to be a part of your village.

Jaclyn Rowehl

Students should come prepared to sing a song and perform a short monologue. Audition forms can be picked up in Ms. Napier’s room. Bring your completed form to the audition.

Bullying Prevention

This week we kick off our Second Step unit in Recognizing Bullying & Harassment. Students will learn about:

  1. Three most common types of in-person bullying (physical, relational & verbal.)

  2. The definition of harassment and distinguish between bullying and harassment.

  3. Understanding bullying: most students know bullying is harmful, despite its prevalence in school culture.

What can parents or guardians do to help?

Ask your child about what they learned about bullying this week. Ask if they have experienced or witnessed bullying. Encourage them to tell you how it made them feel and encourage them to always talk to a trusted adult if they witness or experience bullying behaviors.

Other steps we are taking this week:

  • Our very own CRMS student news crew will start to work with our guidance staff to create a weekly news segment on bully prevention!
  • The guidance staff and administration will continue to look into other preventative measures for bullying and information for parents.

News from PTO

Thanks to all the families who have joined PTO! We want to reach 100% participation!!! PTO does so much for our students and teachers throughout the year so please consider joining via or by completing the form and sending in with cash/check!

PTO Membership & Fall Fundraising Drive is also happening! Your Fall Sponsorship donation of $35 (or more) is the largest contributor to our budget! It’s what we call “One & Done” since it eliminates the need for us to ask your child to solicit funds throughout the year…no wrapping paper or candle sales! Our PTO budget funds many amazing projects for our school including author visits, library books, positive behavior celebrations, honor roll celebrations, special teacher/classroom projects, playground equipment, in-school and after-school clubs, band scholarships, and much more!

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

Stay in the loop with your child's academics!
