Nationally-Normed Standardized Testing is coming up for state-required grade levels of 3, 6 and 9. Grade 4 will also complete tests this year. In addition, we will be providing a practice administration for students in Grade 2. The ERB Test has been updated this year(CTP-5). All students will take the tests off site (at classroom space at Yates Baptist Church) on the mornings of March 20-22, except students in Grade 2 who will take their practice tests on campus over five mornings, starting this Thursday. All other grade levels will have regular classes.
Paid Summer Internships for 10th and 11th Graders:
Several local non-profit organizations are offering six-week summer internships to rising Camelot 11th and 12th graders, thanks to the First Rung Fund, a Donor-Advised Fund of the Triangle Community Foundation. This is an amazing opportunity for three of our students to become involved in the community while being compensated for their time. Applications available fromMs. Amy. They are due on Wednesday, March 20. Interviews will be scheduled after Spring Break.
Bake Sale to Support the Upper School Dance - March 18-22nd. We are asking for parent and student volunteers to donate baked or purchased items on Monday 3/18 to Ms. Jenny’s homeroom. Ms. Jenny and her volunteers will individually wrap and label your donated items. Please include a note listing any allergens (nuts, gluten, etc.) so that we can include it in our labeling.
