A Walk through the Forest

Room 13 first, second, and third grade students recently completed our 'Walk through the Forest' project.  In this project class our focus was learning about what lives in the Oregon Forest.  Our driving question was, "How can we as a group share information about what lives in the Oregon Forests with our community and the world?"  Here you can view photographs of the our final projects. Through art we created a forest walk in our hallway.  Additionally some students published their Oregon Tree reports on the 'Camas Kids Show What We Know' website. Enjoy our photographs.

Classroom News March 1st, 2018

Dear Families,
Welcome to March! Tomorrow is an especially fun day. Tomorrow we celebrate Read Across America. All students are welcome to dress up as a book character tomorrow.  Along with that we will be having our Seuss Extravaganza for K-3rd grade.  Students are welcome to visit classrooms for Seuss Activities.  In addition to this, 2nd graders have been working hard on their 'Silly Seuss News' website,  You can visit our website at

In other news we have moved on from Medieval Times. We are now diving into learning about Ancient Egypt. We will be exploring topics such as Mummies, Pyramids, The Nile River, Hieroglyphics, and much more.  It is certainly an exciting time to be in second grade. 
Thank you to all the families who sent in amazing 100's day collections.  Rest assured, if you were unable to come up with a collection idea for your child, we took care of them at school so EVERYONE had a hundred's collection to display. 
If you turned in your sock hop money thank you very much. If not there is still time. We are over half way to our goal. The money raised does a lot to keep art and projects alive in our building.
Thank you all for your support. Each of you are appreciated!
