The art room at Cameron is a place where every student can be successful and every student is an artist.
Students will be completing numerous projects in class. Projects are assessed using a self-grading rubric that will be given out before projects begin. All projects need to be complete before the term ends. Students may come into art class during lunch, after school, or bring materials home. Projects are worth 80% of the total grade.
Drama Classes focus on participation, engagement and effort. We seek to inspire and encourage willing students to try something new.
Drama allows students to communicate with and understand others in new ways.
Drama classes provide the practical aspects of communication so necessary in today's increasingly information-centered and technology-centered world.
Students in Drama are required to have self-control and follow the rules.
Students will learn to work together, and find the best way for each member of a group to contribute and to listen to and accept the viewpoints and contributions of others.
Drama is an important tool for preparing students to live and work in a 21st Century World where businesses are increasingly looking for staff who are team-oriented.
By studying how the world looks through another person's eyes, drama classes help students develop tolerance and empathy. This does not mean a student must agree with another perspective, but that they may better understand or acknowledge the beauty in diverse perspectives found in our community. Drama classes can help build responsible global citizens.

Physical Education Website
As we start another year of Physical Education, we refresh ourselves with the standards that drive our curriculum. We aim to educate our Cameron students by teaching the National Standards of Physical Education to produce physically educated and active students.
A physically educated student:
Our physical education (PE) program is a full year course for all students, though the number of class meetings varies from either one class per six-day cycle to two classes per six-day cycle. This allows students either thirty or sixty PE classes per year. This supports our focus of educating students to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle outside of school in their day-to-day lives. Examples of the units presented throughout our yearlong program are soccer, flag football, floor hockey, volleyball, basketball, gymnastics, team building activities, badminton, table tennis, ultimate frisbee, adventure games, fitness, etc. The assessment tool called the FITNESSGRAM is used throughout the year as a guideline for fitness improvement. In each grade, skill development is addressed through instruction, practice, activities, and mini-games. Students are given the opportunity to demonstrate understanding and respect for differences among people in the physical activity settings. The Cameron student is exposed to both large group and small group activities. The Cameron PE program challenges each student to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical fitness.
We encourage each student to be prepared for class with his/her active wear clothing and a readiness to participate.
We pride ourselves on providing learning opportunities as well as physical activity. We encourage you to try to make exercise a part of you and your child’s daily schedule.
