Welcome to Camden Elementary School! We hope this website will give you a glimpse into the daily life of a Camden Elementary falcon. Camden Elementary was built in 2005 for students in grades PK-5. We believe…
Our outstanding staff has a common planning time each day to plan researched-based and writing and technology-infused lessons and assessments, and analyze data. As a district, we have adopted the Fountas and Pinnell’s "Guided Reading" approach and as a school, the Generation Ready’s writer's workshop approach. Our PK-5 students use Envision Math to learn problem solving and higher level mathematical skills. In addition, our science classrooms are very interactive and lab-based, and the science lab is equipped with up-to-date resources and technology. Our Social Studies’ classes are connecting real life to history.
Our special classes are library, computer, music, and P.E. Our library is a very informative and decorative library with up-to-date books and other resources, seven technology stations, equipped with Destiny, Renaissance Learning It also has iPad, lap top, and chromebook carts. Our computer classes focus on keyboarding and on-line learning. In music, students sing, play instruments, read music, compose original music, and performs programs. They even learn about different types of music, various composers and performers. Our P.E. classes are engaging students and developing, practicing, and reinforcing healthy habits.
