Cold and Flu Season is Coming…

We all know that it's important to be at school on time every day, but eventually children will get sick. One way to help lessen the spread of germs is to do the simple act of washing our hands. Children may not always listen when you tell them to wash their hands before eating, but it's a message worth repeating. Hand washing is by far the best way to prevent germs from spreading and to keep your kids from getting sick.

 No new technology, drug or vaccine is capable of preventing more infections than the simple act of washing one's hands, according to doctors.  Washing hands is a major public health intervention to prevent disease -- it's cheap, it's easy, and it works.

 To reinforce the habit, practice with your children at home. Remember to tell them to sing the ABC song or another short song two times to have germ-free hands!

Walking is a fun and healthy way to spend time with your child.

In Campbell Union School District, we encourage parents and students to walk or bike to school every Wednesday. For those who live too far, try parking farther away from the school and walking the last block or two.

Since children learn by doing, YOU are your child’s most important role model for learning to walk safely. As you walk, please:

  • Obey all traffic signs and signals.
  • Look LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT for moving cars, and cross when clear.
  • Time yourself. Practice this weekend to find out how much time to allow.
  • Check the weather and dress appropriately (boots, rain coat, umbrella, etc.).

As you walk, you can talk with your child about what you’re doing and explain why.

A Message from the Superintendent

Parents often ask me: “When will I find out the results of my child’s tests?”

Each year our teachers administer several assessments to determine student growth and inform their classroom teaching practice. These assessments—tests, quizzes, class projects, and the like—provide multiple ways to measure student progress towards learning the important concepts they need for success in school and in the community at-large.

Our assessment cycle includes dates we report results throughout the year. Also, our teachers are available to discuss student progress with the parents.

Assessment Reporting Schedule

iReady Testing Results

  • October at Parent-Teacher Conferences
  • Mid-November via student delivery
  • Early March via student delivery

Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Distribution Cycle

  • Tentatively August/September 2016 via U.S. mail

Trimester Report Cards

  • Middle School (sent via U.S. mail): Nov. 19, March 10, June 9

Campbell Union School District employees value partnering with you to prepare our students for college and career success. Please continue to communicate with your child’s teacher(s) to stay informed and to ensure that we are all doing our best to provide each student with an optimal educational experience.

On Thursday, December 3rd, we will have our first end of quarter Perfect Attendance Assembly. You will be notified on Monday, November 30th if your child will be honored at this assembly. We are focused on students being on time everyday, but do understand that when they are sick, they need to be at home. Your support for this all year long is greatly appreciated.

Thirty minutes of nightly reading is a part of our homework expectation. At Lynhaven, we celebrate our readers by having a drawing each month called RAH (Reading At Home)! We have been sending home a monthly RAH sheet broken up in weekly time frames. If you fill this out, and return it to school each week, your child will be in a drawing to win free books! Each teacher will collect the slips in class and then draw out 2 names each month. The more you read, the more slips you can turn in! Please encourage your child to read. Strong reading skills can help children do better in all curricular areas.

Did you know that we are now serving breakfast? We have heard that it's the most important meal of the day, and it truly is! Students who have breakfast are on time to school, energized and show more engagement in class. Please consider coming to breakfast. We serve from 7:30-8:00 each day and the cost is the same as lunch. Only students having breakfast will be allowed onto campus before 7:55 and they must enter through the front gates only. Hope to see you there!

Students need to be picked up at dismissal. We have many students who play on the front grass for up to 30-40 minutes waiting on pick up. This is not allowed as we do not have supervision beyond 10 minutes after dismissal. This also goes for students who are playing on campus before the morning supervision. Students are not to play on the playground ground or the play structures in the Kindergarten yard and the Upper Play ground before school. This is a safety concern and will result in disciplinary actions.

Your children have a wonderful opportunity to work with robots on our campus. They are called Dash Robots  and Blue Bots and they are designed to work with a coding program that makes them follow your child’s directions. This is a part of our commitment to STEAM in Campbell and to having students use 21st century skills to challenge themselves to go beyond the expected.
