Morning Car Rider Reminder: As the school year comes to an end, please remember to follow the car rider traffic flow, and stay in the car rider line. If you have an extenuating circumstance, and need to get out of the car rider line, please park in a designated Camden parking spot, and walk your student(s) all the way to the front door. It is not permissible to park in a Camden or SOMS parking spot and send your student(s) across the parking lot by themselves. This is for the safety of everyone, especially your child. Thank you for following these procedures and keeping your child and the Camden staff safe at morning drop off.
Are you looking for a way to make some extra money? Substitute teaching might be the job for you!
Did you know that…
If you want to know more about becoming a substitute teacher, contact Dana Corson (assistant principal) at (502) 241-1271 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Animal Supply Drive! Do you like animals? Ms. Wells's class needs your help! Their class will be collecting supplies such as food, toys and cleaning supplies to support local animals.

Attention Parents and Guardians: Art/Design Collaboration: Mrs. Kahmann, our art teacher, would love to partner with guest artists/designers right here in our community during the 2022-23 school year! Whether it be sharing your artistic/design talent, working with our students virtually or in person, sharing with them how you've used art/design in your career, or collaborating on a short project with any grade, we want to enrich our students understanding of the artists right here in their own community, and expose them to different career options that involve art/design. If you are interested in volunteering to partner with us during the 2022-2023 school year, please complete this brief survey, linked here. Thank you so much!
Library News: All books should now be returned to the library. If you find any books at home or in backpacks, please bring them into the library as soon as possible. Thanks! The Oldham County Public Library visited Camden to talk to students about Summer Reading on Monday, May 16. Each student should have brought home a packet to fill out this summer! Aron Nels Steinke, author of Mr. Wolf's class, will be doing a Virtual Author Visit with students in Grades 3-5 on Thursday, May 19. Again, a big thanks to the PTO for generously funding this activity! There will be a BIG book giveaway from the library on Friday, May 20. All barcodes have been removed or covered from books that students can KEEP!
2022 Cross Country: I hope everyone is doing well and had a wonderful spring break! I know summer is coming up fast and I am sure everyone is looking forward to the warmer weather. After a very successful and fun 2021 Cross Country season I wanted to go ahead and get the Fall of 2022 season kicked off. In preparation for the season I am going to open registration up for the first 40 runners. All students that will be in the first grade or older in the fall are welcome to sign up. Signups will end on June 17th. If you are interested please fill out the google form found HERE - Google Form. I will continue to use the email CSEaglesXC@gmail.com along with TeamSnap for communication with the team once the roster is setup. We will have a registration fee which will cover meet registrations, awards and pictures.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing everyone in the fall!
- Coach Bryan
Notifying the School of Positive Test Results or Quarantine: If your student tests positive for COVID-19 or they’ve been asked to quarantine because of close contact with someone who has tested positive, please contact the school to notify us of this. It is essential for our students’ health that we have this information. We appreciate your support!
Snacks for Students: We just want to remind families to send your student to school with a peanut-free snack and a water bottle each day. For many classes, there is a long gap between arrival and lunch times and a hungry or thirsty student can’t focus nearly as well! Thank you in advance for ensuring that your student has these items before they come to school in the morning.
Counseling Corner: Please see the attached document for information from our school counselor, Mrs. Goodrich.
Do you know a Camden staff member who went above and beyond for your student? We want your input as to who is going out of their way to provide exceptional opportunities for your child! It could be office staff, bus drivers, custodial staff or instructional staff. Provide details about one of “Camden’s Soaring Eagles” and we will anonymously share it with everyone! Email your thoughts to email@example.com.
OC Arts Center Summer Camps: Please see the attached flyer for the offerings for Summer Camp through OC Arts Center.
