Astro Camp

Our 5th grade students are preparing for our annual Astrocamp trip.  If you have not heard of Astrocamp here is some information:

  • Astrocamp began as part of the GATE Magnet 25 years ago. 
  • In 1990 it was expanded to include all of the 5th grade students at Circle View.
  • Circle View is the only school in the OVSD that goes to Astrocamp.
  • There have been major cuts to education which means there is no district money available for Astrocamp.
  • We need to raise approximately $260 per child in order for all fifth grade students to attend Astrocamp.
  • The two major funding sources for this trip will be parent donations and fundraising profits.
  • A steering committee was formed to help begin fundraising for the trip.
  • Astro Camp fundraisers include:  Skate Nights, Pasta Nights, and other events.

If your child is in 5th grade, please request to join the facebook group Circle View AstroCamp 2013
