Dear Students, Parents and Community Members,
We are just a couple weeks away from the beginning of a new school year. On Tuesday, September 2, we will open our doors to nearly 6,500 students. Whether you are new or have been with us for a while, on behalf of the Camas School Board and the entire Camas School District staff, it is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to the 2014/2015 school year.
The Camas School District’s motto, “A Tradition of Caring and Quality,” is a commitment, challenge, and expectation. We believe it is essential that we provide all of our students with a meaningful educational experience that allows them to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in which ever path they choose after graduation. The District has earned a reputation as one of the premier and most-recognized public school districts in the United States. Long-standing community support combined with a talented, caring, professional staff has provided Camas students with the facilities, technology, and learning opportunities needed for a world-class education. The results in the Camas School District certainly support the fact that the best education occurs when schools, parents, and communities work together to provide a rich and rewarding educational experience for all. In fact, the Camas School District’s reputation for excellence was a major factor in Family Circle Magazine recently naming Camas as one of the 10 Best Towns for Families.
Your active participation and support are essential components of providing a quality education. Please know your thoughts and suggestions are important to us. We value your input and look forward to continuing in partnership with you. We will do our best and are committed to providing consistent and effective communication throughout the coming year. Visit our web-site at www.camas.wednet.edu for district information, school updates, and important announcements. Also, you will receive regular notifications regarding current events, inclement weather alerts, emergency information, and more by updating your current contact information with your school.
Camas is a unique and very special school district. I am honored and privileged to serve as your Superintendent. As I said, I truly believe education is a joint venture, and I know that by working together we will continue to accomplish great things. I look forward to another outstanding school year.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give me a call at 360-833-5412.
Mike Nerland, Superintendent
