5th Grade Camp Info:

The fifth grade students will be leaving for Camp Kern Tuesday, March 26.  The Camp Kern experience is three days and two nights of outdoor education.  Students stay in cabins and will participate in a variety of hands on learning experiences covering many science and history topics.  These activities cover Pioneer Life, Native Americans, Ecology, Survival Skills, Team Building, and much, much more!

Reminders for 5th Grade Parents:

  • Camp gear may be dropped off Monday afternoon between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. or Tuesday morning between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m..  STUDENTS CAN NOT BRING CAMP GEAR TO SCHOOL ON THE BUS!  Please remember to park in a parking spot if you will be coming in with your child to avoid blocking traffic during drop off time.
  • Please watch the weather closely to ensure your child has appropriate clothing.  As you know the weather has been unpredictable and we are outside rain, snow, or sunshine!  Make sure your child’s name is on EVERYTHING including the outside of their bag!  Students can pack in large duffel bags or garbage backs, as these are easiest to transport on the bus.  Please place your child’s bag/gear in the cafeteria next to their homeroom teacher’s name – signs will be posted.
  • If your child will be taking medications during camp please make sure they are turned in to the Health Clinic no later than Monday afternoon.  You must have the authorization form signed by a doctor and medications must be in the original container.  Contact your child’s teacher with questions.
  • Students are NOT permitted to bring electronic devices (cell phones), food, or money.  All adults will have a cell phone if your child needs to call home at any time.

If you have any questions about the Camp Kern trip, please contact your child’s teacher.  We’re looking forward to a great trip!
