Lacamas Lake Elementary Outdoor Signs

Saving the past, educating the future

Lacamas Lake Elementary School is a newly built school in the rural area of the Camas School District. One of the conditions of the district’s permit with the City of Camas for the new school was that the “Applicant must incorporate public information in regard to the historical importance of the site, such as a plaque or other signage.”

District facilities planning staff wanted to share the efforts made to document and preserve, not just the historical, but the natural features of the site as well—seeing it as a great learning opportunity for students and community members. Camas staff came up with four sign topics and gathered photos and written descriptions for each of the signs. They then turned this information over to the League designer who refined the text and blended the photos taken with stock photography to layout the signs.

The signs are currently installed near the front parking lot and around the large outdoor play area at a height suitable for both kids and adults.


The Washington School Public Relations Association presented this project with an Award of Excellence for Special Purpose Publication for districts with less than 10,000 students at the 2019 award ceremony.
