A Special Thank You! to all the families who came to Camden on Saturday morning to help clean and landscape the grounds.  We had about 40 people show up to help, which included students, parents, Brownie Troop 2221, and Cub Scout Troop 28.  An extra thank you to Joella Brown for coordinating the event, the Camden Station PTA for funding the supplies, and Matt Young for bringing extra power equipment and staying late to weed-eat the grounds and finish up the mowing.  We're sure the students came to school today with a special feeling of pride after putting in the work on Saturday morning to make Camden the best looking school around! 



Calling all artists! Mrs. Kahmann is accepting artwork for the 4th annual Camden Station Elementary Student Art Show! All students Kindergarten through 5th grade can enter up to 2 art works in this show.  Wouldn’t it be amazing if every Eagle had an artwork in the show?  If every student brought in just one work of art, we’d have over 400 art works in the show!  A special treat...this year's art show will be held at the Oldham County Arts Center!


Entering an artwork in this show is easy…here's all you have to do:

  1. We have made so many creative artworks in art class this year that show our deep thinking! Choose an art work that you've made in art class at Camden of which you are really proud – something that showcases your talent and creativity as an artist!
  2. Bring it in to Mrs. Kahmann with an entry form filled out!  All entries are due by Friday, April 25th. (Students may turn in their artworks any time before April 25th).

Entry forms are located outside of the art room. Let’s make this art show the biggest and best yet!



Mrs. Kahmann needs volunteers to help prepare artwork for the 4th annual Camden Station Elementary Student Art Show. She will need volunteers from April 7 until May 7 at their convenience.  Preparation work ranges from matting and labeling works of art to helping set up the show at the Arts Center after school May 5-7.  Any interested volunteers may contact Mrs. Kahmann at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
