We have students and staff who are severely allergic to the above items. Please help us keep our students and staff safe by not wearing scented products, by not bringing peanut and/or whole eggs into our school. Thank you for helping us keep our students and staff safe.

On Wednesday, April 9, CAMS had a Secure & Hold Procedure. A member of the community arrived on school property uninvited. The police were called and students were asked to remain inside the building. The students were quick to comply with the request and the day proceeded as usual inside the building. No students were ever at risk.

We are running the TTFM Survey from Monday, March 24th to Friday, April 4th. The survey can be completed at home and takes approximately 10-15 minutes. It involves both multiple choice and written questions. To complete this survey, please go to:

JACOB DENG
Do you remember Jacob Deng? He came to speak with our students about Southern Sudan and the hardships that his community endured. He has returned to his home community until August to try to solve the problem of starvation. Students at CAMS are in the process of organizing a volleyball tournament to support Jacob’s foundation. Teachers are forming teams and the players are being asked to seek pledges to raise money to help the people of Sudan.The tournament will take place Thursday April 17. Any support you can offer will be greatly appreciated!
