miles, laughter and creative exploration all came together for one week
in July during Marvin Camras' Summer Camp Invention! 75 students worked on taking
apart machines, learning about various inventors and inventions, and prototyping
their own video game story! They also worked on water challenges - while getting
wet along the way - which culminated with building and competing in their own
freestyle racing carts!
This STEM learning curriculum was through the United States Patent and Trademark
Office and was sponsored by the CH2M Hill foundation. This summer camp was an
amazing creative experience for our students. We are so thankful for CH2M Hill's
generosity. Thank you!

third grade classes just completed their Sound investigations. They explored
sound through different hands on activities . They learned how sound travels
through air, liquid and solids. They studied high and low pitches, and vibrations.
They also learned about echolocation and how humans and animals use echolocation.
Their research application project was to create something that made high or
low pitches. Look at all their great projects!
he American Society of Safety Engineers recently donated gym padding for
the safety of our students when they play basketball under the basketball hoop
near the South Wall of the gym. Thank You so much for your generous donation!
Camras and the American Society of Safety Engineers have worked together
in the past. Our students have participated in safety poster contests and the
American Society of Safety Engineers have come to school to educate students
on safety. We look forward in continuing this partnership for our students'
education and safety.
