4th Grade Celebrates Green Energy Fair!

Mrs. Breaux read an article on Twitter that claimed that our 10 year olders will have the knowledge and resources to change the world by using renewable energies instead of fossil fuels. She challenged them by saying, "I believe you are the grade level that can help change the world by creating clean energies. Let's get started!" They took the challenge, researched energies, invited guest speakers, and created their own authentic solutions! It was an incredible learning opportunity for our students and their guests!

STEM in Action!!

As we continue building our STEM Culture at Camacho Elementary, we are bringing relevant learning experiences and jobs to our campus. We are learning how the 4 C's (creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication) are integrated in the real world!

KVUE Weather Lab

KVUE Meteorologist, Jared Plushnick, brings the Weather Lab and his Storm Chaser to Christine Camacho Elementary to visit with our 5th graders! He uses his STEM skills every day as he studies and forecasts the weather for Austin and the surrounding areas!

Schoolwide Flex Time!

Have you heard your daughter or son come home and talk about schoolwide flex time? In early October, we implemented a protected time (8:00 - 8:30 M-Th) to focus on providing our students with a purposeful and focused intervention and challenge time for literacy! Ask your child to tell you about it! We've been having great success and providing a variety of learning opportunities for the success of our Cosmos!
