STUDENT AFFAIRS NEWS 

Upcoming Retreats
  • March for Life Retreat
    Students attending the March for Life Retreat will have a pre-retreat session on January 16, 2019 from 3-4pm in the IC. Additionally, they must be at CCHS on Friday, January 18, 2019 no later than 6:15AM to board the bus. The bus should be back to CCHS at 7pm. Please ensure your children dress appropriately for the weather, bringing hats, gloves and wearing layers. We encourage them to wear their pro-life t-shirts and/or Camden Catholic clothing to represent our school's support for life! We are praying for them and the important work for life they will do on Friday.
     
  • Gift of Mission - Sophomore/Junior Girls Retreat
    Students who signed up to attend the Gift of Mission Retreat at the Sisters of St. Joseph Motherhouse on Feb 13th must turn in their retreat paperwork (academic eligibility, permission slip and fee) no later than January 18, 2019. We have to report our numbers attending so there is no extension for this due date.
Christian Service Progam
Verification of Christian service hours for the first semester were due December 10, 2018.
As a reminder  Christian service is an annual school requirement and students will not be eligible to participate fully in other extracurricular activities and events if they have not fulfilled their service obligations.

We are in the process of loading the hours on Renweb. You can find the hours under the family tab, and then the Service Hour tab.


Upcoming Service Opportunities
St. Anthony's School with the Catholic Partnership Schools is seeking Camden Catholic students to help with their SOAR program that runs from Monday-Thursday for 5th-8th graders. Each day there is an hour of homework help from 3-4 and then enrichment clubs from 4-5 pm. Clubs have ranged from chess, sports, art, science, and more! Each club runs 1 day a week for (at least) 6 weeks.
 
It would be a great way for students (especially juniors and seniors) to gain service hours, as well as add volunteer experience to college and scholarship applications. 
 
The next session of SOAR starts January 7th. Please contact Ms. Pollard at mpollard@cspschools.org or see Ms. Clinton in Rm 114.
 
Christ the King Religious Education in Haddonfield  is looking for student volunteers to help us out during classes on Mondays. See flyer on bulletin board outside of the Dining Hall for more details or stop by Rm 114 and see Ms. Clinton.
 
NHS Midterm Exam Study Nights
The NHS will hold study sessions for Midterm exams in the Information Commons from 6pm to 8pm on January 15th and January 16th. NHS students will be available for study help at the study nights.
MID-TERM EXAMS: JANUARY 22-24

Students will begin preparation for midterm examinations this week. These assessments count for twenty percent of the semester grade, and should be approached seriously.  

The midterm examination schedule is as follows:
January 22: English and Social Studies
January 23: Math and World Language
January 24: Science and Religion
 
Each day we will follow a similar schedule . The first exam will start at 8:25. The second exam will start at 10:05. Dismissal will be at 11:30. Students who have already qualified for extended time accommodations will receive separate instructions. 
 
Students should make every effort to be in school each day for Midterms. Only an absolute, documented, emergency should keep a student from taking the midterm exam on the scheduled day. These are outlined in the Student Handbook, and exclude travel plans. Parents should call the attendance office by 8:00 AM any day an emergency prevents a student from taking the exam.  Make-up exams will be given on January 25, 2019.
