Hi Camacho Families!

Last week was an awesome week! We had New Family Orientation on Tuesday, and Kinder Camp on Thursday. We loved meeting all of our families that are new to Camacho. This week is going to be great, as well!

Tuesday, August 11th - Meet the Teacher Night

You will be receiving an email with Zoom links from your child's teacher. There are three times available, but you only have to attend one. 5:00, 5:30, 6:00. You will also get more information about what to expect with virtual learning!

Wednesday, August 10th - PTA's School Supply Event & Kinder Readiness Kit Pick-Up

Join us from 6:00-7:30 to pick up your child's school supplies! These are supplies that you ordered in the spring/summer for your Cosmo through the PTA! If you did not get supplies ordered through PTA, the Camacho School Supply List is attached here. School supplies can be picked up on the 2-5 side of the building, and Kinder Readiness Kits can be picked up on the K-1 side of the building. If you are unable to pick them up on Wednesday, please stop by the front office later in the week and they will have Kinder kits ready for you!

Thursday, August 13th - The 1st Day of School through Virtual Empowered Learning!

We cannot wait to meet and see all of our Camacho students virtually for the first day of school!
