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.

The California School Dashboard is a new tool from the State of California that replaces the old Academic Performance Index (API).  It will provide parents, educators, and the public with important information they can use to evaluate schools and school districts in an easy-to-understand report card format.

The California School Dashboard is a critical piece of California’s new school accountability and continuous improvement system. A 5-minute video explains how the new tool works and what it looks like.
