If you don't enter school from Cypress avenue, you may not have seen our newest addition! We have a beautiful electronic marquee in the front of the school. It's been up and running for a few days now and we are so excited to share upcoming events this way!

A reminder for you about another survey coming home in the Thursday envelopes tomorrow. It's the Parent Perception Survey. This paper survey gives me feedback on how well things are going on our campus and what you as parents would like to see improve. I appreciate you taking the time to fill this out and return it to school by May 27th.

At a March 17 Study Session, the Campbell Union School District Governing Board began discussions about proposed changes at three of its schools: Rosemary Elementary School, Campbell Middle School, and Village School, the district’s a parent participation school.

Main components of the proposal include:

  1. Rosemary Elementary School: add a fifth grade class to the preschool-through-grade-four school in August 2016 with a possibility of expanding to a Preschool through 8th grade site in the future.
  2. Campbell Middle School: Expand the grade 5-8 middle school to Preschool through 8th grade, possibly in the 2017/18 school year. (This proposal could include merging Village School and Campbell Middle School, but is not dependent upon it.)
  3. Village School: If the school merges with Campbell Middle, the current Village School campus would convert to a preschool site. If the two schools do not merge, Village School will remain as is and planning for converting Campbell Middle School to a preschool-through-eighth-grade campus would continue.

One of the proposed changes was approved on March 31st: Rosemary School will have a 5th grade starting in the new school year. Discussions about the rest of the proposed changes will continue throughout the year.

“This proposal is a starting point. We are at the very beginning of the conversation,” said District Superintendent Eric Andrew. “Having ample opportunity for discussion is an integral part of the process.”

Andrew said the proposal stems from the District’s Strategic Planning, input from stakeholders, and the goal of ensuring that every school in the Campbell Union School District is a School of Choice. 

“We want each school to be as desirable as the next, so parents are confident that their children are receiving a top quality education in a top quality educational setting no matter which is their neighborhood school, ” he said.

The Superintendent and Board have had multiple meetings with staff, families and other community stakeholders since mid-March, and more are expected.

“We will discuss the District Reorganization proposal at each board meeting until we finalize the plan and identify methods to monitor the implementation of the plan,” Andrew said.

“Change can be uncomfortable, he added, “but it also can bring about wonderful outcomes for our students.”

If you have questions or want to be part of the discussions, please contact the school principal or ask_us [at]

Beltran is sworn in

The Campbell USD Governing Board appointed Pablo A. Beltran to fill a vacancy that occurred when Board Member Juliet Tiffany-Morales resigned on March 10, 2016. He was sworn in on March 31st, and will hold the provisional appointment until the November 2016 election when voters will elect a trustee to fill a four-year term.

“Public schools have a broad purpose which starts with teaching our children the cognitive, problem-solving and critical-thinking skills required for future success,” Beltran said. “I look forward to collaborating with the board and the community to support that long-term vision.”
