Childcare will be provided for potty trained/school aged children. Please come out to support our hard working PTA board who plan many fun events for all of the students and staff at Lynhaven!

As a parent of two children at Lynhaven, I have a lot to keep track of. I like our three new online apps for different reasons. Each one is a MUST HAVE for every busy parent who wants to keep up with what's happening at school! 

1. REMIND--this is great for last-minute reminders from our awesome principal Ms. Rowan and my daughter's teacher too. They can text back personally to me and I can ask any questions I have. LOVE this. It keeps me in the loop and I know I won't suffer from missing out on spirit day reminders, special event reminders, or even classroom events!

2. MY SCHOOL ANYWHERE--this is a fantastic on line school directory of families, faculty, and has a link to our school google calendar right on my phone. Here's where I sign up for school events like the pumpkin walk, the holiday fair and the walk a thon, and I love signing up online to bring a treat to the teachers and see when teacher and office staff birthdays are! This is the app that really brings our community together.

3. SEESAW-- I LOVE getting a picture text from our teacher of some work my daughter has done in class. She suffers from the classic "I don't know" syndrome...where "I DUNNO" is her answer to any question I ask her, especially, "What did you do in school today?"--so this lets me see what's going on and feel a part of her day! Please ask your teacher for details on how to join SEESAW! 

I LOVE that Lynhaven is up to date with the latest technology! As a Silicon Valley School, we are RIGHT ON TREND!! GO LYNX!!!

Join the Campbell Union School District community in celebrating 12 talented student authors at the District’s 15th Annual Rising Young Authors awards, October 18, 2017, at 7 p.m., at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore on Stevens Creek Blvd., in San Jose.

The Rising Young Authors are a select group of students whose short stories, essays, research papers, and poems were among hundreds entered in the District’s annual Writing Faire last May. After the Writing Faire, judges review eligible entries to select one Author of the Year per school to receive the Rising Young Author award in the fall.

The student authors will speak to the audience about their award-winning books and, later, they will autograph copies for fans who bring copies with them to the event.

Each month we'll be putting articles in the newsletter about helpful strategies to support students at home and school. This month is the Conversations about School! 

After School Questions! 

"What did you do at school today? Nothing. If this is the question you're asking, try changing it up with your children. Try instead:

What was the coolest thing that happened today? What was not so cool? 

What's something that made you laugh? 

How did you show your ABC's today or were kind and caring? Who was someone that was kind or caring to you? 

I can't wait to see what you did today or what your homework is! 

These conversation starters will help you stay involved in school and get a better sense of your child's day!

A Message from the Superintendent

With news about changes in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), we want to remind our families that Campbell Union School District is committed to welcoming and supporting all students and their families, regardless of their immigration status.

Last spring, our Governing Board adopted a Resolution Reaffirming Support of Immigrant Students and Families, which reaffirms that support and provides guidance about how to provide it within legal parameters. The full text of the resolution is available online at campbellusd.org/policy, or in print from the District Administration, 408-341-7254 or ask_us [at] campbellusd.org.
