EXAMS

Exams are this week - please come to the conference room to pick up materials for your test. If you are not giving a test during a period, please go around & help set up computers in classrooms that are testing.


Remember to make sure I am aware of where you are during the day in case you are needed to administer an exam.


Please keep students in the classroom and out of the hallways during exams.


A testing reminder sheet has been placed in your box.

STAFF MEETING

Thursday afternoon we will have a staff meeting in Ms. Bush's room. There are several things we need to discuss as we look at completing the CIHS application this summer and want to make sure that everyone is involved in the decision process.

GRADUATION

Please make plans to attend the 2015 Commencement Ceremony on Friday at 7:00 PM. Graduates will arrive at 6 PM and gather in the media center. Staff will be part of the processional so please be in the lobby/breezeway prior to the ceremony beginning.

RETIREMENT AND STAFF APPRECIATION CELEBRATION

All staff should plan to attend the the annual Retirement and Staff Appreciation Reception. It will be held at Camden Middle School on Monday June 15 at 9:00 a.m.

CANVAS

Camden County Schools has purchased and will be utilizing Canvas Learning Management System for the 2015-2016 school year. This system links with PowerSchool and SchoolNet and will hopefully provide our students and parents with a central location to access information regarding course work, grades, etc.


Mr. Reaves & Mrs. Lilly will attend a training session on Canvas and will then train the staff when the 2015-2016 school year begins.


Please visit their website to learn more about Canvas or sign up for a free trial. You can find more information at:
