YMCA Giving Campaign

We are very fortunate that we have the YMCA connected to our school!  They are able to provided needed services to many of families.  We have raised $980 of our campus goal of $1,500.00, please click on the link and support our local Y that gives back to many of our Robo Griffins!


Thanks to our PTA

I wanted to send a special thanks to everyone involved in our PTA.  It takes us working together to benefit all of our students.  Over the break, we were able to get a couple of automated water filling stations installed on campus.  Please pack a water bottle.

Kids Heart Challenge- Kick Off January 13, 2023

For nearly 45 years, the American Heart Association has been partnering with educators in elementary, middle and high schools across the nation to help educate students about healthy living.

The Kids Heart Challenge and American Heart Challenge school programs provide unique age-appropriate curriculum and activities. Students and educators have the tools needed to support both mental and physical well-being in students, families and staff, all while making a difference by raising funds to save lives.

Did you know that Camarena is the #1 fundraising school in San Diego county for the American Heart Associations Kids Heart Challenge?  That’s right!  For the past several years our school has raised more money that any other school in the county to help others in need!  We are kicking it all off this Friday and will be sending home more information this weekend.
