On behalf of the Camden Primary family, it is truly my pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you as we begin the 2015-2016 school year at Camden Primary. To those students and parents who are new to Camden Primary, we extend an especially warm welcome and best wishes for an exciting and productive year.
My name is Heather Campbell and I am the principal. The 2015-2016 school year will be my sixth year as principal and my eighteenth year with Preble Shawnee. Preble Shawnee is my home. Not only do I work here, I am a Preble Shawnee graduate. I live within the school district with my husband, Harvey, and our three children.
I am very proud to be a part of Camden Primary. We have I believe the best and most dedicated staff around. This shows with our test scores. While the state does not have the excellent rating as a part the report cards anymore, we will continue to be an excellent school district.
The staff has been working hard and is excited to continue with our Reading-at-Homeprogram this year. The theme for this year is “We are S.U.P.E.R readers!”. "Students Using their Powers to Engage in Reading." We will kick off this program in October. Continue to look for information on our website.
We encourage you to become active in our PTO. They meet once a month and will keep you updated through our website and newsletters. We will be sending home a letter to parents soon showing all of the ways the PTO helps our school.
Another way to get involved is to volunteer to help tutor students, chaperone field trips, or organize classroom celebrations. We can never have too much help. We will be looking for parents who would like to come in and work with students. Please look for information at our Open House as well as in a volunteer form that will be coming home.
Finally, if your child needs additional support or if you have a concern, please do not hesitate to contact his/her teacher. It is our mission to support your child in whatever way we can. Working together makes a difference in the lives of our students.
We thank you for your support and welcome you to the new school year.
Mrs. Heather Campbell, Principal
