Message from Athletics Director Michael Berro:
 
Camelot Athletics is approaching its final week and I would like to thank all athletes, parents, and coaches for their support over the course of the season. To round out the year, this Wednesday more than one-third of the senior class will be playing in their final Camelot athletic event in the game against Fletcher Academy. If you or a student would like to attend the game in order to give them a great sendoff, Camelot is organizing transportation. Please use the link (http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090b4ea9a92aa0fd0-ultimate ) to reserve a spot.
 
In other athletics news, our second semester athletics fundraiser is kicking off. If you’d like custom Camelot merchandise, this is your chance!  Use the link (http://shop.fancloth.com/27707/386958) or speak with an athlete during pickup/drop-off  in the next two weeks to see what’s offered.

Summer Programs!
 
Our team has been hard at work planning our themes for EduVentures (ages 6-12).
Morning literature, writing and math activities will tie to afternoon activities and excursions.
Over the course of the six weeks, all key elementary concepts will be taught by DOING.
Whether it be weighing and measuring fish caught in our farm pond or writing lab reports using the Scientific Method, we are excited about the engaging material being prepared for your youngsters.

Chainsaw owner/operators are needed for some upcoming weekend workdays at the farm.  We are getting ready to clear areas for new animal pens, gardens and trails.  If you own and operate a chainsaw - and would be interested in earning Parent Service credit by assisting - please let me know.  Students may participate in hauling the brush that is cut.
