CAMAS SPECIAL ELECTION - Levies

Support Camas Schools! Don't forget to vote by 2/9!


On Feb. 9, Camas residents will vote on two Camas School District levies: one for Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O), one for technology-Capital. These are NOT new levies. They will replace two levies expiring at the end of 2021.


The Educational Programs and Operations levy makes up to 20% of the annual budget and fills the gap for extra-curricular, special services, transportation, food services, and additional staffing positions which the State does not adequately provide. The Technology and Safety Capital levy will provide needed support for technology, roofs, boilers, and fire protection.

SHOE DRIVE UPDATE


Thank you for helping us collect 2,143 pairs of shoes, which will be passed on to help others! Fox Rocks kindness, community, helping others, environmentally conscious actions, and supporting our school! Thank you for sharing your shoe donations!

PTA FUNDS AT WORK


The PTA Board has approved to use Short Term Legacy Funds and additional funds to support the school during the transition to hybrid learning and continued remote learning. We are grateful for the opportunity to help the school be safe and successful.


"Opening school during COVID has required a number of additional costs including technology, school supplies, signage, and playground needs atypical to previous years. We look to the PTA in particular to help with costs that have a positive impact over a large part of the population and that either enhance school culture for all kids, or will be items that can be used for many years to come." - Dr. Sork


Funds approved totaled $3,300.

Thank you to parents for your support in fundraising events and direct donations to make this possible!
