What a great week it’s been to be a Firebird here at Camelback!
We can't wait to see everyone this week as we welcome all of our families onto campus for Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences. All of our teachers should have already communicated and scheduled with you or provided you the open times available. We'll be releasing early this week at 1:15pm Tuesday through Friday. Please know it's our goal to participate in 100% voice-to-voice conferences. This means if you can't make it into the school; we still want to see you and speak with you about your child's progress. October may be a spooky month but these conferences aren't! We have our Interim Assessment data to share, DIBELS reading data, and of course our first quarter report cards. We can't wait to work directly with you to ensure all of our students are growing and meeting their learning targets.
We also have a few safety reminders for everyone; here at AMS Camelback we're focused on the Firebird Code which clearly defines our school-wide expectations as Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe and Be a Learner. We want everyone practicing these all of the time. In order to continue to focus on learning; we're reminding all families to tell your child to keep their cell phones put away. We will provide all of the digital tools they will need during the day, they don't need their phones out and they should be left at home or stored in the backpacks. Also, as a reminder, our school day ends at 3:15pm. This means learning will continue for all students until 3:15pm, with the changes we instituted this past week to arrival and dismissal, some of our scholars are still getting used to working until 3:15pm, please remind your child of this expectation. Also, no 3rd - 8th graders will be dismissed until 3:15pm, please do not come early and line up for them, we will not be dismissing them early.
If you're not already connected with your child's teacher(s) please reach out and get connected with Class Dojo or email and please be sure we have the most up-to-date phone number as well. We need to be working together and the best way to do so is to be connected.
We have so many great things happening every day here at Camelback, the most current information is always on our website, Facebook, Instagram, Class Dojo or in these autodialer messages. #WeAreCamelback
