So much happens at the Media Center!
We are open daily from 7:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. We have an open door policy. Students are welcome to exchange books whenever they wish with their teacher’s permission.
Cameron Park has its own Post Office!
Have you noticed the street signs along each hallway? Every classroom has its own unique address. You can write a letter to any student in the school!
Parents-- you can write letters to your child at school and they will be delivered right to their classroom!
Students - you can write letters to your friends in school and they will get them at their desks!
A mailbox in the lobby holds Wee Deliver mail where 4th and 5th grade Official Cameron Park Postal Employees collect the mail, process it and deliver along the postal routes designed throughout the school.
To write a letter to anyone at Cameron Park, you need to know their Cameron Park address. Addresses for classrooms are listed on each teacher's class page as well as on the Cameron Park Directory page which lists the Wee Deliver addresses for all classes. Be sure to address the letter by name, use the Classroom Address, and be sure to add Hillsborough, NC 27278 at the end!
The goals of our post office are as follows:
- To provide the children with real life experiences in which to apply basic skills such as: writing a letter, addressing envelopes, using the mail system, and using ZIP codes.
- To unify the student body through a student centered school-wide communication system.
- To provide knowledge of how mail is processed.
- To develop a sense of job responsibility as a post office employee.
We hope you and your child make use of this innovative program. If you have any questions about the post office, please contact the Cameron Park Postmaster, Mrs. Hughes in the media center.
