Camelot Receives $7,500 Grant From Weyerhaeuser!

Recently Camelot was awarded $7,500 from Weyerhaeuser for on-going work being done to the Camelot West Forest education site. After 2 years of student observations, interviews with native plant specialists and architects, designing with a Seattle landscape architect, and several work   parties at the site to remove ivy, blackberries, weeds, and tree debris, Camelot along with Mrs. Borg’s 5th grade classes are moving forward with the Weyerhaeuser Outdoor Classroom Project. The outdoor classroom will focus on environmental science and sustainability practices. Camelot is a green school where we continue to strive for new ways to learn about protecting and conserving our natural resources. The grant money will help build trails, informational signs, observation       platforms, and a covered classroom with benches. This third year is the beginning of the construction phase of the project. Look for ways to support and help out with this project in the next couple of months.

For more information – please contact Mrs. Borg at dborg@fwps.org or 253-945-2521

Project Citizen – 2014 National Showcase

Congratulations to our 2013-2014 HCP Classroom.

Each participating class examined a local public policy issue by studying the impact of the problem on the community, evaluating alternative solutions to the problem, proposing an agreed-upon public policy solution, and finally, creating a political action plan to enlist local or state authorities in adopting their proposed policy. Students were required to provide thorough documentation of their research in a binder that accompanied each portfolio. Students from Camelot ranked in the Superior Achievement Level, the highest level. Only six other states ranked at the superior level.

Project Citizen is the most extensive education program in the country of its kind that teaches young people how to examine and influence the public policymaking process.  The program aims to give students a hands-on understanding of their responsibilities as American citizens.  Students are provided the opportunity to take an active role in positive social change.
