At its April 13th meeting, the Transformation Team reviewed feedback received at the March 23 community input forum and considered several models for implementing the transition to the new school.
The Team used the community input forum feedback to begin developing the new school’s Guiding Principals and defining the characteristics of a successful student who matriculates from the new PreK-to-grade-8 school.
After several months of review and discussion of models for implementing a transition to the new school, the team agreed upon a recommendation to present for approval at the April 20th Governing Board meeting. The decision will be announced to the public at that time and, if approved, the District will notify students, families and staff of the next steps.
Meeting notes, key dates, and other information about the school transformation is available on the Transformation web page.

Students had equal say as adults as more than 100 parents, students, staff and neighbors gave input at a March 23 community forum about creating a new Preschool–8th-grade school in the District.
The meeting began with attendees using stickers to vote on the Guiding Principals the Transformation Team will consider as it develops recommendations for the Governing Board. Then, participants and facilitators separated into affinity groups—parents with other parents, students with students, and so on—so they could discuss hopes, concerns and ideas for the new school. They consolidated their input and reported it back to the whole group. Their responses are posted on the District's Transformation web page in the March 23 meeting notes.
In April, the Transformation Team will review the responses and identify common themes to address in recommendations it sends to the Board in June.
State testing will happen from mid-April through May, and we're doing our best to ensure our students do their best.
Each year, students in grades 3–8 will participate in the statewide testing program called the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). The tests cover English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics for grades 3–8, and science fore grades 5 and 8. They provide information to teachers, parents/guardians, and students about students’ progress and readiness for college and career.
The principal will send information about specific testing dates and times at your child's school.
Meanwhile: Don't Fret. Stay Informed.

Saturday, March 4th, 47 CMS students woke up at the break of dawn and eagerly headed to San Jose State University to compete at its annual MESA Day. With more than 15 schools being represented by hundreds of students, the competition was fierce and the emotions were showing. We are happy to report that several of our students placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in various competitions! These students will be moving on to regionals where they will be taking on students representing MESA centers from CSU Chico, CSU East Bay, UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, UC San Francisco and others.
Most notably, Campbell Middle School as a whole took home the MESA Spirit Award. This award is given to the MESA school program that most embodies the program’s vision for every student to "excel in STEM pathways, from elementary to graduate school and into careers where they accelerate and build the Golden State’s leadership in research, industry, and service."
A special thanks go to our MESA Teachers Mr. Richard Timpson and Mr. Pedro Garcia.
