Principal's Message

Wildcat Students - Families - Friends,

Welcome to Camas Prairie Elementary, home of the Wildcats. Whether you're a returning Wildcat or a brand-new Wildcat, we are certain you'll agree that Camas Prairie is an AMAZING school full of educators who care about our students, families and each other.

Our ultimate goal is academic excellence for each and every student, and we know they must be happy and healthy to learn at the highest levels possible. In order to do so, we have a comprehensive social-emotional curriculum designed to support all students, as well as high quality math, English language arts, and science curricula. All that said, there is another essential ingredient in your child's receipt for success: YOU! Yes, YOU! In order for your child to reach their highest potential, the family-school partnership must flourish.

  • If you have questions about what your child is learning or should be learning, ask us!
  • If you have questions about your child's progress, ask us (please don't wait for conference time)!
  • VOLUNTEER! If you can't volunteer, maybe a grandparent or older sibling can. We want you here!

In addition to the family-school partnership, are positive attendance habits. Camas Prairie teachers are some of the best in schools and we work hard to maximize real, hands-on, brains-on, experiential learning opportunities each and every day. Sending home a worksheet cannot even come close to replicating in-classroom learning, so we need your child here at school when they are well.

Lean in and connect with us, we'd love to meet you. Here's to another fantastic year.

It's always a great day to be a Wildcat!

Melissa Munson-Merritt, Principal
