Mr. Lundstrom was been named a 2015-16 Javits-Frasier scholar by the National Association for Gifted Children.
Only 12 teachers nationally were recognized and Lundstrom was the only California educator to be named a Javits-Frasier scholar.
The Javits-Frasier Teacher Scholarship Fund for Diverse Talent Development recognizes passionate, innovative educators who work in districts that serve students from low-income and minority populations that are historically underrepresented in gifted education.
Camellia teachers recently hosted the second Camellia Academic Teacher Team (CATT) meeting of the school year, an event that left parents feeling empowered to help their students.
Camellia faculty spent the evening teaching parents academic activities and games to use at home with students. Academic Parent Teacher Teams are a model of parent engagement brought to Sacramento City Unified by the Parent Teacher Home Visit Project, a national nonprofit focused on building trust between schools and families.
Welcome Back! I hope all of you had a great summer filled with great memories and needed rest. We are incredibly excited to begin the 2017-18 school year at Camellia Basic!
As I head into my 2nd year at Camellia, I feel blessed to be among such fantastic teachers and support staff who are always looking for ways to better the educational experience of our students as well as the abundance of support from all of you…the families. This year will be no different. We look forward to making this a great school year where the educational experiences address the whole child needs of students as evidenced by classroom engagement with rigorous and relevant material combined with special events and activities.
Again, we welcome you to Camellia and to our wonderful learning community, a place that is full of unlimited possibilities. Here’s to a wonderful school year as we work together to make our school an amazing place to work and learn each day!
