Announcements:
Our online calendar has been updated with the major school breaks for 2017-18.

We've been super-busy at Camelot with a mix of grounds work, summer programming, finalizing reports and grades, having planning meetings and officially tying up all the loose ends of 2016-17.  Our trips to Yosemite and Ecuador will depart soon and next month we will launch our Build It-Dream It Program for teenagers and we will welcome a group of Middle School students from our sister school in Chengdu, China.
 
I hope that when your envelope of grades and comments arrives in the next few days you will be able to make the time to sit down as a family to read and reflect upon the feedback.  Not only does our work on these reports document successes and accomplishments, but it also provides a roadmap for future goals.  I have spent the last few weeks reading each and every comment and have taken my own notes, accordingly.  We can all maximize the Camelot Experience for our students by reflecting on and planning with the information that is provided in these big white envelopes!  Kudos to Jill P and my sister Donna for the countless hours they spent pulling together all of the info and to all of the teachers for the time and care they put into the report-writing process.
 
Reminders:
 
- We will be closed for Summer Break from June 26- July 7  
 
July 1 is the final deadline for high school students to sign up for one or more day trips to colleges during the week of July 31. The link with info is here:

All rising 3rd-12th graders have Summer AR (Accelerated Reader) assignments.  Students should come in during regular hours (8 AM - 5 PMMonday-Friday) to take these tests as they complete each book.
 
The annual pool party will be held at Woodcroft Pool (Thursday, July 13).  This is a great time for us all to check in with each other and to welcome new families.
 
 
When we return from break it will be time to unveil many exciting plans for the 2017-18 School year - new teachers, new trips, new classes, etc!  For those who have graduated or are moving this is the official final installment of our 2016-17 Camelot Updates.  I look forward to hearing about your adventures and hope you will let me know if there is anything I can do to be helpful to you.  To everyone else, I look forward to our adventures to come in 2017-18.  Have a good couple of weeks and I'll be back in touch soon.
 
Best,
Thelma
