Fourth Grade Patriot Night Is February 26
Students in the fourth grade will participate in a colonial reenactment for the fourth year at Historic Camden on February 26, 2015. Parents, faculty, and students look forward to this each year.
Artist in Residence
In January, 5th graders had a great time creating Kudzu baskets under the guidance of Ms. Nancy Basket of Kudzu Kabin Designs. Be sure to ask your 5th grader about their basket weaving experience and check out the artistic designs of Ms. Basket at www.nancybasket.com.
We also enjoyed a visit from another Artist-in-Resident, Mr. Darion McCloud, Storyteller and Actor. He spent some time with our 3rd graders Feb 2-6.
Two of our Artist-in-Residence will return in March to work with our 2nd and 4th graders.
The Arts are "Growing like Kudzu" at Camden Elementary!

Mark your calendars for Celebrating the Arts Night at CES on March 24. You won’t want to miss the wonderful arts experiences that we have planned. We will have a student art gallery, visiting artists in theater and dance, and more! The time will be announced at a later date.

CES Wins Arts Grant!
We have been awarded the Distinguished Arts Planning (DAP) grant from the SC Dept of Education, again this year! Part of these funds will go to Professional Development for teachers and two week-long residencies with a Dance and Theatre artist. If you would like to be a part of the grant steering committee, please contact Mrs. McDonald at Aregina.email@example.com. Creativity abounds at CESCA!
¨ Let your child know homework is a top priority
¨ Set up a specific time for homework and keep distractions to a minimum
¨ Pick a quiet study area with supplies such as paper and pencils nearby.
¨ Review homework directions with your child
¨ Be available for questions, but allow your child to be responsible for their own work.
¨ Look over finished assignments to see that the work has been completed.
We have reached our halfway mark!! We are so proud of all of our students that received awards. Even for those that did not, we know that you will continue to strive for the best, and you will be rewarded for your efforts. The students are continuing to show their “Wise Owl Behavior!” So many students were invited to our PBIS Hoe Down!! We had a great time dancing in our western attire, and look forward to even more students joining us for a blow pop and a movie for the third nine weeks. We are so proud of our students!! We are also thankful to our teachers for guiding the students and rewarding them for their great behavior.
