2018 Height & Weight Surveillance Project

CVESD will begin collecting height and weight data in all schools beginning in October. The data will be part of a surveillance project intended to give CVESD a biennial look at grade level results based on age, gender, school and district measures. Heights and weights of students in kindergarten through 6th grade will be measured in a confidential setting and remain confidential. A parental notification form has been sent home. If you do not want your child’s weight and height measured, please complete and sign the form and send back to school by October 10th.

Pizza Money Donations

Hello 6th Grade Parents,

Our pizza fundraiser is this Friday during the Fiesta Mexicana here at Camarena from 2:30 to 5:30 pm.  We will be selling Little Ceasars pizza.  Can you please send your $5, $10, $15, or $20 donation to school by this Thursday, September 13.  We will need one parent to make a pizza run to Little Ceasars to pick up all the pizzas.  Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to offset the cost of 6th grade camp for all 6th grade students.  Thank you so much for your generosity and willingness to help.

We also need volunteers to help sell pizzas during the following shifts:

2:30- 3:00; 3:00 – 3:30; 3:30 – 4:00; 4:00 – 4:30; 4:30 – 5:00; and 5:00 – 5:30.  Please email Mr. Morales at gerardo.morales@cvesd.org to sign up for one of the available time slots.

Grandparents Day 2018

Monday, September 10 is our annual Grandparents Day celebration from 7:30-8:30 AM in the Multi-Purpose Room. Let’s take some time to honor our Camarena grandparents.  Let’s appreciate all the joy and wisdom that grandparents bring to our lives!


The History of Grandparents Day

Marian McQuade hoped to establish a national day that would honor grandparents, and in 1970 she began a campaign to do so. McQuade raised awareness about senior citizens throughout the 1970s. In 1978, President Jimmy Carter declared the first Sunday after Labor Day to be National Grandparents Day. Each year, the president issues a proclamation to keep the tradition going.
