CHS Focus Group: Why do you fly our flag?

Student running with a CHS flag.

What makes you proud to be, to have been, or to someday become a Papermaker? What are your aspirations for the future of CHS? What are your concerns?

Join us for a focus group on Tuesday, August 15, to let us know your thoughts and meet our new administration team! We’ll begin at 5:30 PM in the North Commons at CHS and will move into smaller groups for discussion. It will help us in our facilitation if you let us know if you plan to attend–click here to RSVP.

Jeff Yalden Visit

On June 8, the Camas High School ASB sponsored a full-day visit by Jeff Yalden, who addressed a variety of topics relating to mental health, mindfulness, and motivation. This link features video of all three sessions facilitated by Mr. Yalden, including:
Morning motivational assembly with our students;
Lunchtime Mindfulness Mastery session (affirmations, breathing, exercise, focusing activities…); and
Evening presentation to our parents that covered how to recognize unhealthy warning signs and strategies to supporting adolescent mental health and a balanced lifestyle at home.
All three sessions appear in order on a single video. So viewers will need to scroll to whatever session they want to watch.

CHS Summer School Starts June 27!

Credit Recovery Summer School
The CHS Summer School may be just what you need if your student did not pass a class during the first or second semesters of the current school year. If your student hasn’t already made plans for Summer School, you may be interested in helping them do so now. Most required core courses will be available except for Algebra I and Geometry which are separate summer school programs.

CHS Summer School starts June 27th at 9:00 am sharp. The following days’ classes will start at 8:00 am, end at Noon and be held June 28, 29, 30, and July 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14.
More details are located here.

Algebra 1 or Geometry Summer School
Is your student interested in recovering Algebra I or Geometry credit? Is he/she interested in getting a better grade in Algebra I or Geometry? Or….has he/she not yet taken Algebra I or Geometry but really strong in math and feel confident that they could pass an accelerated-pace course?

In this summer class, your student will have the opportunity to learn all of the most important material from Algebra 1 or Geometry and increase his/her chance of succeeding in future math courses and passing the state End of Course Exam or Smarter Balanced Math Exam. More details located here.

The Summer School Application can downloaded here.

CSD Names High School Principal

Liza Sejkora will take over as Camas High School principal starting this fall. She is currently the assistant principal at Coronado High School in Scottsdale, Ariz., and has 14 years of experience as a middle, high school and college English Language Arts instructor.

“What stands out to me is what we learned when we visited Liza’s current high school: the way staff and students talked about her leadership, how she elevates those around her, how she supports people while holding them accountable,” Superintendent Jeff Snell said in a release from the district. “Teachers remarked on ways she’s helped them grow, her availability and her great sense of humor.”

She is replacing Steve Marshall, who will become the director of educational resources in district administration this summer.
