Wishing all of the Camelback families out there a Happy New Year today! We can't wait to get back to work on Tuesday January 3rd when school resumes.

Thank you for always being there and supporting us as we work to provide an extraordinary learning experience for your children. Our Middle School teachers have been hard at work planning for some big changes we're implementing this week and we couldn't be more thrilled about the changes. Parents, you'll be learning more about these changes in a special message scheduled for tomorrow morning. The entire Camelback staff is excited and recharged to get back to work and bring you the best education possible, we can't wait to get 2023 started! We finished 2022 with a wonderful Winter Concert and we couldn't have been happier about seeing all of our students perform. This semester you can expect more of the same, we're going to continue to look for ways to show off and celebrate our students in the areas of The 3 A's - Academics, Athletics and the Arts. And don't forget, January means Re-Enrollment for next school year. We know you have many choices out there, but we want you to continue to choose us. If there is anything we can do to assist you at any time, please always reach out directly to the Front Office and our team will get you connected with the right staff member.

Special Parent Message

Middle School Families –


We are thrilled to start the second semester with some very exciting changes to our middle school structure and schedules. We have heard from our community loud and clear; change is necessary in order for us to provide an extraordinary learning experience for our scholars. We have heard that leveling our students into ability groups for homerooms is not working and is not giving us the results, it originally intended. We have heard that not providing opportunities for our students to participate in multiple special area classes is a problem and our students need opportunities to experience music, technology, and physical education. These options will now be available to our students, and they will be able to show us their skills in the Three A’s – Academics, Arts and Athletics. In collaboration with the Academies of Math & Science Network leadership team, we have the honor to pilot these changes in our 6th, 7th and 8th grades starting now. When your child returns to school for second semester we will begin with a middle school “huddle” in the gym to share the changes and reassign homerooms. Our Middle School will have four teachers at each grade, which means we are able to reduce class sizes to better meet the needs of our students

Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences Featured Photo

Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences

We can't wait to see everyone this week as we welcome all of our families onto campus for Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences. All of our teachers should have already communicated and scheduled with you or provided you the open times available. We'll be releasing early this week at 1:15pm Tuesday through Friday. Please know it's our goal to participate in 100% voice-to-voice conferences. This means if you can't make it into the school; we still want to see you and speak with you about your child's progress. October may be a spooky month but these conferences aren't! We have our Interim Assessment data to share, DIBELS reading data, and of course our first quarter report cards. We can't wait to work directly with you to ensure all of our students are growing and meeting their learning targets.
