Keep Up the Good Work, Dye Elementary Book Bowl Team!

Who knows a good book?  The members of the Dye’s Fifth Grade Book Bowl Team sure do! Book Bowl is a reading competition that requires students to read 10 books, and are quizzed on their knowledge of those book.  Wish them well as the team moves on to County competition in March!

CAMS YouthQuest Focuses on STEM, Female Etiquette, and Congratulating Mr. Sutton!

The YouthQuest focus this week was on S.T.E.M. continued as students prepare for a trip to the Air Zoo in Kalamazoo next month and the robotics competition next week! Again this week, our art vendor spearheaded the effort of incorporating STEM into artistic masterpieces and expressions of self creativity. Students really enjoy drawing and it has been proven beneficial to allow them to explore art this month.

Also this week, we introduced a new segment for our females: Female etiquette. Personal development involves so much more than learning how to act and behave in certain social environments, and for our ladies, we want to instill in them the things they need to know to become productive ladies no matter what the social situation. What’s even better, the etiquette class came at a huge request from our students! That’s pretty awesome!

Lastly, a special congratulations goes out to Mr. Sutton, our Site Assistant, for getting married on Friday. We wish him much success and a lifetime of happiness as he enters a new and exciting chapter of his life. As always, lots of new things are happening here at CAMS, and we hope you all stop in to check us out sometime. We’d love to see you!
