veterans day

Cameron celebrated Veterans Day today! We hosted self-identified military families for a breakfast in the library. Chorus students performed for the families. Each grade level made a display showcasing student gratitude for all those who have served. 

At Cameron, we have many families and staff members who are military-connected, so we send deep appreciation and thanks to all veterans and their families. 


cheetah pride

We are continuing to celebrate our learning of Cheetah P.R.I.D.E. around the building! All students will "sign" their grade level banner with a "paw print" to show their commitment to the values of Positive Role Model, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Effort. 


November 15 Thanksgiving Lunch

We are excited to share the return of Thanksgiving Lunch in the Cameron cafeteria! Save the date November 15, and plan to enjoy Thanksgiving Lunch with your student at school. Check out this graphic created by 6th grader Delano S. in Canva!
