Camelot Update - September 17, 2017

Greetings!
 
We had a super retreat - one of the best in memory.  We accomplished all we set out to do and struck a good balance between group discussions and individual student planning.  Our teachers have worked very hard to complete the assessments and reflections necessary to this process - their passion and dedication is inspirational.                                               .
 
We are very appreciative of the care and reflection families put into their Retreat Feedback. Our responses to these come in many ways - individually via email or call, at our group presentation on Parent Night or in your Family Conference.  Or course we will respond to all questions or requests - please be on the lookout over the next couple of weeks.                                                                                             
 
Announcements:                                    
 
The Class of '18 did a wonderful job last Friday on the final day of Student Orientation.  After two weeks of prep, they presented skits to the underclassmen to portray the story and messages of Camelot to our MAPP and Middle Grades students.  From duels to lip-syncing, they provided leadership and memories for us all.
 
This Tuesday, September 19 from 6:30-8:30 PM, there is a College Fair at UNC’s Dean Smith Center.  High school students and their families are strongly encouraged to attend.  More info is here:

This Friday, Middle and Upper School students begin their Friday elective classes.  Opportunities from computing and chess to basketball and yoga are available. Students heard presentations from the instructors last week and have made their selections.
 
This week you will receive an email from Jill Pitino for Family Conference sign-up (week of October 2). Please be on the lookout for it.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
Reminders:
 
We are still in search of a table tennis coach.  Practices begin in mid/late October and run through early/mid February.  This is a paid position for after school hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Please contact our AD Michael Berro at berro@camelotacademy.org for more info.
