CMS students, staff, parents, and community members joined forces in a big way this month. During the month of November, the Campbell Middle School family came together to organize 72 Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets (complete with a $25 gift card to purchase a Turkey!) for families in the community.

This project is a combined effort of CMS staff, students, PTA, local community groups and remarkable individuals. The baskets were made possible by everyone working together; a student penny drive, turkey trot, donations and graceful giving hearts.

A special thank you to Pastor Will, and the Community Christian Church of Campbell.  

Campbell students also gave back to their community by partnering with the City of Campbell and the Rotary Club in a park clean-up and improvement project. CMS is an awesome community!

Walking is a fun and healthy way to spend time with your child.

In Campbell Union School District, we encourage parents and students to walk or bike to school every Wednesday. For those who live too far, try parking farther away from the school and walking the last block or two.

Since children learn by doing, YOU are your child’s most important role model for learning to walk safely. As you walk, please:

  • Obey all traffic signs and signals.
  • Look LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT for moving cars, and cross when clear.
  • Time yourself. Practice this weekend to find out how much time to allow.
  • Check the weather and dress appropriately (boots, rain coat, umbrella, etc.).

As you walk, you can talk with your child about what you’re doing and explain why.

A Message from the Superintendent

Parents often ask me: “When will I find out the results of my child’s tests?”

Each year our teachers administer several assessments to determine student growth and inform their classroom teaching practice. These assessments—tests, quizzes, class projects, and the like—provide multiple ways to measure student progress towards learning the important concepts they need for success in school and in the community at-large.

Our assessment cycle includes dates we report results throughout the year. Also, our teachers are available to discuss student progress with the parents.

Assessment Reporting Schedule

iReady Testing Results

  • October at Parent-Teacher Conferences
  • Mid-November via student delivery
  • Early March via student delivery

Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Distribution Cycle

  • Tentatively August/September 2016 via U.S. mail

  •  Middle School (sent via U.S. mail): Nov. 19, March 10, June 9

Campbell Union School District employees value partnering with you to prepare our students for college and career success. Please continue to communicate with your child’s teacher(s) to stay informed and to ensure that we are all doing our best to provide each student with an optimal educational experience.

Also, we’d love a chef, kindergarten teacher, architect, graphic designer,military, auto me

chanic, business owner, Actor/Dancer/Music, Fashion (clothes) designer, Animator, archeologist, stunt double, etc.

Guest speakers present to a small group of 20 students with a teacher in the room for about 30 minutes.  Speakers receive support and ideas about how to structure their presentation. It is an fantastic opportunity for the students.

If you know of anyone who fits one of these categories and could speak to our 8th graders on Wednesday, December 9th, please contact Mrs. Parker or Mrs. Kumu: mparker [at], mnaeoletakasato [at] or call 408-364-4222
