Dear 5th Grade Families,
Camp is only thirty-one days away. We have 58 high school students ready for camp and excited to complete their training. Everything is starting to fall in place to set up our 5th graders for a memorable camp experience. Here are some reminders and a new opportunity to consider.
CAMP PAYMENTS: IF YOU HAVE NOT PAID FOR CAMP - Final Camp Cost: The cost of camp, as indicated in a prior email, is $100 due to the generous support of our PTA. Payment is due prior to leaving for camp. If you are in need of financial assistance for camp, please reach out to me. Checks can be made out to the Berkley School District. Digital payments may be made through MISTAR. Please follow these directions to make online payments through the MISTAR Parent Portal.
Log into MISTAR
Choose the Accounts Tab located in the left hand side bar.
Choose the hyperlink “Click Here to Access Online SBA Payments”.
Choose the School Name 5th Grade Camp option.
Be advised that the following charges will be added to any online payment: The paypal charge is $0.30 + 3%. The system will take you directly to Paypal to pay and then bring you back to MISTAR to post your payment to your student’s account.
*Please note that if you are unable to pay within the timeline please communicate directly with your building principal as payment plans may be extended, if needed.
TRADING POST: NEW OPPORTUNITY . . . If you would like to purchase any camp swag please use the TRADING POST FORM to make orders now. All orders and payments must be in by 3:30 pm on February 14th to your school.
PACKING LIST: Please use the Packing List to organize all the clothing and items needed for camp. Please note that students may not bring any electronics, including Apple Watches and phones of any kind. This is a good time to make sure you have ALL the winter gear as it will be hard to find in March. Remember that we do not allow any electronics at camp (cell phones, smartwatches, ipads, etc…)
HEALTH FORMS: Please use our Camp Health Form Link to complete a health form for your child. This will help us organize all the necessary information to ensure your child has a great experience at camp. Please complete ASAP!
MEDICATION: All medication must be in its original container. More information about medication needs while at camp will be found on the health forms, so please review that information carefully and provide us detailed information.
LUGGAGE DROP OFF: On the day of camp (March 6th), student luggage will need to be dropped off at Hartfield Lanes, 3490 12 Mile in Berkley. We will have assigned times for each school that will be sent out prior to camp. Volunteers are needed to help load the luggage onto the truck. If you are willing and able to help, please get out of your vehicle when dropping off luggage at Hartfield Lanes.
MAIL: Fifth graders love mail! Start thinking about organizing letters and asking important people in your child's life to consider sending letters, as well. If you choose to mail them, you will want to send them out the week before we leave for camp.
