Please join us in preparation for the Writing STAAR by supplying these specific camping items for the weeks of our camp. Starting on Monday, students will begin working for the next day's camping essential incentive.
On Monday, they will work towards being able to bring and use flashlights on TUESDAY!
On Tuesday, the will work towards being able to bring and use sleeping bags on WEDNESDAY!
On Wednesday, they will work towards being able to bring and use camping chairs on THURSDAY!
On Thursday, they will work towards being able to wear pajamas on FRIDAY!
These items will build on each other as the week moves along. By Friday, they could very well be writing their last paper while wearing pajamas, sitting in the camping chair of their choice or laying in their sleeping bag, and using a flashlight. How cozy! :)
**We will also be providing a s'mores treat to those students who showed incredible focus, determination, and overall great behavior throughout the week, on Friday!**
