Phone-A-Thon Week

A group of Liberty and Skyridge students will volunteer their evenings this week to make phone calls on behalf of the Camas Educational Foundation for their fundraising effort titled “Phone-A-Thon.” Each night on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday these middle school students will be phoning school district households to ask for donations to support the Foundation’s important mission of bringing enhanced curriculum opportunities to Camas schools. The Foundation’s Phone-A-Thon is one of only two fundraisers held each year--the other being the CEF Auction held in the fall.

In 2009, through the generosity of Camas families and businesses, CEF supported the following projects through grants given to Camas educators:
· Science Olympiad for elementary schools,
· Camas High School robotics program,
· "Hawkeye Gazette” (Skyridge Middle School newspaper run by students),
· Parenting resource libraries at all elementary schools,
· Alternative energy project at Camas High School, and much more!
