Emergency Blue Cards
Emergency blue cards are sent home with students during the first week of school. Parents must keep the school informed of any changes in the original information that was entered on the card. When a child becomes ill or injured, it is very important that the school have the current address and phone numbers in order to contact that parent or guardian.
SCHOLARSHIP, ARTS, SERVICE
At the Collaborative Arts Middle School (CAMS) we are obsessed with the success of our students. Planting the seeds of a college-ready education in middle school, our students will leave the halls of CAMS better equipped to contribute to the advancement of themselves and the world. We are a school for every learner, where each student analyzes his or her own data to identify and conquer weaknesses, enhance strengths, and craft goals. Focusing on providing each student with a standards-based, technology infused, project driven educational experience, we set high expectations coupled with high levels of support. Our instructional design is rooted in tailored instruction coupled with academic intervention strategies. Knowing that middle school learners are unique in their development, we seek to teach the entire student through programs like Advisory that help middle school learners and families make the transition from elementary school to high school.
