Distance Learning Survey



While we do not know what is to become of the upcoming year, we would like to have you participate in a Distance Learning Survey.  This survey will help us should we find ourselves in this same situation this coming year.  The survey is very brief-less than 5 minutes.  We are asking that you respectfully share suggestions and/or compliments about the Distance Learning experience for your family.

Thank you for taking the time to help us learn from this process!

Distance Learning Survey

Norms and more…

Camarena has developed some NORMS to help with Distance Learning.  Please take some time to review these for parents and students.


Also, we want to remind you that none of the work being assigned should be causing any stress, especially for parents.  Review the norms, setting up a schedule that works for you.  Encourage your child to do what he/she can.  Breathe and remember that we are here.  It will be ok if your child doesn’t do everything.

Library books can now be returned to school.  Designated days are Tuesday and Thursday for this week and next .  April 21, 23, 28, 30.  Drop off time is 1-3.  This will be a drive through system with a cart of box to place the books in.  Some children may have books in the classroom.  Don’t worry about those.  Teachers will get those when we are allowed back in our classes.

Know that we are thinking of our students and their families.  We send each of you our warmest thoughts and we hope that you are finding a way to cope.  Stay safe and healthy!

Your second grade team

Need a little help using some of the programs your child will be using? Here are some videos to help you out!

As we embark on this new journey to “Distance Learning Land,” we know that there will be many bumps on the road. But no worries, we will get there together. We will hold each other’s hand throughout these challenging time. (Then, we’ll wash our hands! Hehehe…)

Below, are 4 tutorial videos Ms. Teahan, one of our fabulous teachers put together. All of them are on YouTube.

Additionally, our VAPA teachers have put together a website/program for your child to have a little art fun. This “Arts at Home” program, as well as the “vapaonline” blog account is designed so that students and parents can choose which lesson they want to do for the week. Your child does not necessarily have to be in a specific class to attempt any or all lessons/activities.
The link to the website is: http://vapaonline.weebly.com/ 
Hope you all have fun watching, learning and creating!

Camarena Parade

We wanted to let you know that we are preparing a Camarena Staff Parade through the neighborhood this Friday around 10:10 to wave/send love to all of our kiddos and parents.  If you live towards the end of the route, allow for our travel time to get to you.  We will be traveling slowly to ensure our waves, hellos, and air hugs are felt by all!


If you don’t live on one of the streets on our route, practice SAFE 6 FOOT SOCIAL DISTANCING! This will only work if we all remember that!

Please remember that some staff may not be able to attend.  This is an optional event during our Spring Break.
