This year we are embarking on a new and exciting opportunity. We will be having 6th grade camp in the October. There are two reasons for this change. First, fall camp allows teachers to work on building community and setting the expectations for the year. Second, state testing and assessment requirements no longer permit us to go to camp in May, as MEAP testing will occur during that time.
Sixth grade camp will take place the week of October 13-October 17. The week is divided into two groups.
Oct 13-15 Camp for Martin, Spence, Daraskavich, McGlinch, Cohan, Backiel, Hiser, and Gates
Oct 15-17 Camp for Lietz, Erickson, Kopacko, Mansour, Kimball, and Webster
There is a Parent Informational Meeting this Thursday, September 11 at 6:30 in the Cooper Cafe. This will be an opportunity for you to learn about Howell Nature Camp and have any questions answered. There will be no babysitting available. Sixth grade students will have their own informational sessions at school during the day but are welcome to attend the Parent Informational Meeting as well.
In addition, all camp paperwork is due Friday, September 12. Additional camp paperwork can be found on the Cooper website at lpscooper.ss5.sharpschool.com/parents/6th_grade_camp.
Finally, if you are interested in chaperoning 6th Grade Camp, please send in your paperwork, along with your child's by this Friday, September 12. There is a Mandatory Chaperone Meeting on October 8th at 6:30.
