Celebrating All Employees Because Educating Students Takes All of Us Together

Two hands holding a sign that says applause

While there are many days designated to honor and celebrate the various roles and impact of school employees, we believe they are all important in our service and support of students, staff and families. Please join us in recognizing all of our dedicated employees during Campbell Union School District’s Employee Appreciation Week, May 13 through 17.

“Every staff member in our school district plays an important role in shaping the future of our students, from teachers to custodians, office staff to school nurses, administrators to bus drivers; all contribute to creating a nurturing and enriching environment where every  student can reach their highest potential,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez.

As a special part of our annual Employee Appreciation Week, we honor and celebrate outstanding individuals in our schools. We will applaud our Teachers of the Year, Classified Employees of the Year, Volunteers of the Year, and announce the District-level winners who will move on to county level awards.

Traffic Safety Before and After School

We ask that all Lynahven families follow the rules of the road while driving near school

Traffic Safety

Dear Lynhaven Families, 

While it easy to be caught up in the rush of morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up, we ask that you always prioritize safety. Drivers need to follow all the rules of the road, including the posted School Zone speed limit of 25 mph. 

Just as you want drivers to be safe near your homes, our Lynhaven neighbors ask that all of our drivers are safe near their homes. 

Every instructional minute does count. No instructional minutes count more than each of us doing our part to keep the community safe. 

Want to report unsafe driving or traffic violations on the city streets near school? Please report them to the City of San Jose at (408) 277-8900. Want to request a speed monitor from the City of San Jose? Please contact them at (408) 535-3850

In partnership,

Ms. Callaway-Wilson,

Principal

Representing their school and the district proudly, Campbell School of Innovation (CSI) students showcased their problem-solving skills at the 37th annual Tech Challenge held on April 28, 2024. Under the theme "Cosmic Quest," the mission was to develop a launcher to transport supplies to a distant moon, simulating a crucial space mission.

Three CSI teams participated, with Team Lunar Eclipse earning the "Outstanding Collaboration" award for grades 7-8. The event, hosted by The Tech Interactive, drew over 540 teams who spent months preparing their innovative solutions to the challenge.

"I am super proud of all of their hard work this year," CSI teacher Amanda Haughs said, noting the students' dedication, ideas and teamwork.

The CSI Teams are:
Team Axis -- Nikhil M., Cash F., Charlie O. Daniel A., James N.

Team Lunar Eclipse -- Joseph T., Claire G., Logan C., Nicola F., Sebastian H.

Team Cosmic Wolves -- Agastya S., Joshua A., Jay P., Abdullah B., Nolan V.

The Tech Challenge encourages students from grades 4-12 to engage deeply in the engineering design process, fostering both collaboration and critical thinking skills. This year's challenge not only highlighted the students' technical skills but also their ability to work together to solve complex problems.
