On Friday, April 5th, Lynhaven students participated in our own Special Olympics. There were 72 students in all who had a wonderful time playing basketball, scooter ball, getting their faces painted. They all received a participation ribbon at the end. Here are some photos from the day! I am so proud of these students and our same-aged peers from the General Education classes who came to support and participate with them. Big thank you to our P.E. teachers, Coach T. and Mr. Prado, and Cameron from the Special Olympics along with our district team who helped make this happen!

Spring has sprung on our campus and we hope you all enjoyed the week off and were able to spend time with family and friends and traveled somewhere or enjoyed a "stay-cation". As the weather gets warmer, we want to give you a few safety reminders:  

-We appreciate every effort you make in arriving to school on-time for drop off and for pick up. Students are aware that if they are waiting on pick-up, they are sitting on the grass so that the teachers on yard duty can supervise. It's very important that all students follow the expectations of our school and are not running and playing on the campus or in the hallways after dismissal. It is a safety issue. 

-Please refrain from allowing students to ride scooters or bicycles in the hallways at arrival or dismissal. Our Bike rodeo is coming up on May 21st at 2:30, and it's a wonderful event for students to bring their bikes/scooters/roller skates to school and ride through an obstacle course on the playground. 

-All students must wear shoes with a strap on the back. Flip flop sandals are not allowed at school. 

Thank you in advance for helping our students stay safe while on campus!

State testing will begin soon. Formerly known as the SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium), the test is now referred to as CAASSP (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress) 

Important information:

-All 3rd through 5th grade students in General Education and Special Education will be tested beginning April 18th with practice tests. 

-Testing will take place for all grades beginning on 4/22 PROMPTLY at 8:30am  until 10:00am. Testing days vary for grades so please talk to your teacher to verify the dates and times. Students arriving AFTER 8:30 will not be permitted into the classrooms and will have to make up the tests. 

-Students are encouraged to bring their own headphones for the tests so that they are comfortable. We do have the earbud type headphones for them to use. 

-As always, its even more important for our students to get a good night's sleep and eat breakfast during testing. 

-We ask that appointments are not scheduled during the testing times. 

- Most importantly, we remind our students to do their best everyday, get a good night's sleep, and eat breakfast. We appreciate you supporting this message as well.

We invited parents, students, employees and the community to share thoughts about what we're doing well and where we can improve.

We engage parents, students, employees and the community in developing our Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs) so that our decisions and plans are more responsive to our community’s educational priorities. LCAPs describe the school's overall vision for students, annual goals, and specific actions we will take to achieve the vision and goals.

In addition to other important student performance data, we invite input from our stakeholders in a variety of ways, both formal and informal. With a focus on district goals, we use the information to make decisions about programs and to seek added support through community grants and partnerships. As a result of last year’s feedback, some schools added field trips, others added counselors, and still others directed funds to support homework help or art instruction.

A few months ago, we invited parents, students, employees and the community to engage in an online forum, using Thoughtexchange.com to share their own thoughts and rate the thoughts of others about what we're doing well and where we can improve. We were able to receive direct input from thousands of stakeholders.

School administrators are sharing the school-level results with their committees and staff, as part of their planning process for next year. District-level Top Thoughts results are compiled into two interactive reports that appear on our LCAP webpage.

We had a great week of assemblies! We finished up Women's History Month with a visit from the senior Civil Engineer in charge of some famous projects like Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara and Golden 1 Arena in Sacramento. She shared pictures of the projects in progress and completed. Her name is Belen Verduzco and she is a local to San Jose attending East Side Union High School and also being an AVID graduate too! We are so proud to share her accomplishments with our students which reminded them that they can truly achieve any goal they set for themselves!

If that wasn't exciting enough, we spent the morning learning about injured anaimals with WildMind. They brought a turkey vulture (pictured below), porcupine, oppossum, and red tailed hawk to our school. They shared the stories of how each animal was injured and now must live with them. It was a great lesson on empathy for our students to hear.

A Message from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D.

Preparing our students for success in the yet-to-be-defined workplace of the future is rewarding and challenging. Recently, the challenges have increased with changes to economic conditions.

A few major factors have placed new strains on school and district budgets for our district and many others in the region.

  1. Declining enrollment due to families moving to more-affordable places to live;
  2. Flattening State revenue
  3. Unexpected, State-imposed increases to our pension program costs; and
  4. Increased cost and demand for special education services for students.

The bottom line: Campbell Union School District will need to make $2 million in adjustments to our operating budget for the coming school year. 


We are up to the challenge. We have taken some steps already to mitigate some the impacts of that large funding cut:

  • Our energy and water conservation systems are complete,
  • We have secured several grants to support students’ education and wellness,  
  • We trimmed $1.8 million from the current year’s budget, and
  • We are exploring ways to further reduce costs for services outside of the classroom.

Our fiscal responsibility has earned us the public’s confidence and support. Our community shares our commitment to educate all students to their highest potential, approving school bonds to maintain and modernize our buildings and grounds and a parcel tax to provide competitive teacher salaries and up-to-date classroom technology.

Despite serious fiscal challenges coming our way, we are committed to maintaining both our financial solvency and the integrity of our instructional programs as we prepare our students for the opportunities of their yet-to-be-defined futures.
