Last week I checked in with Camas High School head football coach Jon Eagle and seniors Caleb Eldred and Jack Colletto. So fun following the Camas football team this year as they have a 8-0 record so far. Learn more from the coach and players about this year’s team and how they look at the season one game at a time. Make sure to stay in the loop! There are so many ways to follow Just a Girl in Camas-Twitter @justacamasgirl Instagram-@justagirl98607 Facebook-Just a Girl in Camas or subscribe on YouTube-Just a Girl in Camas. The mission of Just a Girl in Camas is to enrich and share my love for the Camas community by helping to promote and feature local businesses and members of the community making a positive impact. To me, community is about working together to make this city we live in functional and friendly while enriching the lives of each other and respecting our neighbors and the beauty of the land around us.
If you haven’t heard this is the first year for the Camas based middle school, The Gryphons. It opened this fall to 120 students who are learning lessons and meeting state standards in a project based learning environment. I got to check out the campus and sit down with the principal Aaron Smith to talk about how this school is doing and what is on the horizon. What an amazing and wonderful option for our youth here in Camas. Listen in and see what you think!
I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down and chat with three special individuals at Camas High School and talk about the upcoming production Chemogirl and other Plays! that will be showcased on Friday, October 7th at Camas High School Auditorium. House opens at 6:30 and the curtain goes up at 7:00. All proceeds go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Light the Night walk to help support research for blood cancers. What a great fundraiser for our community to rally around. Raising funds for cancer research and supporting Camas High School Theater. Please consider supporting.
I’ve heard about this teacher for years and decided it was time to feature this great guy in our community that teaches science and track at Skyridge Middle School. Tune in and listen to my interview with Mr. Condon and hear about his time teaching and about how he cares about the kids he teaches. Very inspirational. It’s teachers like this that make a difference. Thank you for all you do Mr. Condon. Have a great summer everyone!
Put on your dancing shoes and head down to Westlie Ford this Saturday, April 30th at 6:00 for a Nu Shooz concert. Proceeds from this concert go to benefit the Camas Booster Club which in turn goes to support sport programs at Camas middle schools and at Camas High School. Listen in as I chat with Wanda Miller about what Camas Boosters is and with Rory Oster about how it benefits Camas sports programs. For tickets go to www.camasboosters.org
Last week I had to wonderful opportunity to attend the 5th grade luncheon at Prune Hill Elementary. These students got to attend a Portland Youth Philharmonic concert and then come back to their school for a formal, white linen luncheon put on by the PTA and served by their parents. Weeks leading up to this luncheon these kids went over manners, etiquette and behavior in formal dining situations. What a great gift to give these young people to go out in the world with. Hoping to inspire other elementary schools to do the same. Check it out!
