Dear Room 414 Families:
I hope this finds you well, and that your family had a nice break during these last two weeks. We are on the “home stretch” now of Camarena Elementary’s first year! Only 10 more weeks to go. This is a quick update to get you through the month of April.
Monday April 7th > Minimum Day. School will dismiss at 1:15pm.
Friday April 11th > PTA Movie Night. PTA is raising money towards the 6th Grade Promotion. They need DONATIONS!! If you can, please sign up at the SignUp Genius link .

**PROMOTION UPDATE** The official date has been set for Friday, June 6th from 2:00-3:30 at Eastlake Community Church. Thursday, June 5th at 1:00 will be a tentative rehearsal at the venue, and we may need to request parent drivers. Please keep that Thursday free, if you choose to volunteer.
**END OF THE YEAR (EOY) 6TH GRADE ACTIVITIES**
An EOY field trip has been scheduled for Skyzone in May. An all-exclusive $35 will be due by May 2nd for admission to Skyzone, a commemorative t-shirt with student names printed, and EOY picnic. More details and permission slips will be sent in the coming weeks. However, I wanted to give advance notice to plan accordingly.
Thanks to all the families who attended, and the STUDENTS who presented their Student-Led Conferences in March. Your children did a wonderful job, and I was happy to have such great conversations about where they are going in their learning. Your feedback was very, very helpful!
Looking forward to ending the year with a cheer!
