The Importance of Parent Involvement in Schooling Research shows that youth whose parents are actively involved in their schooling are more engaged in school. Students are less likely to be delinquent or drop out, and more likely to achieve higher grades and standardized test scores. Joyce Epstein of the National Network of Partnership Schools developed a framework for understanding six different kinds of parent involvement: 

1. Parenting: families establish home environments that support children’s learning

2. Communicating: families and schools engage in effective two-way communications about student expectations and progress

3. Volunteering: parents directly support the classroom or school

4. Learning at home: families help students with homework and school-related decisionmaking and planning

5. Decision making: parents are involved in school decisions

6. Community collaboration: community services are resources integrated to strengthen schools and families

It is essential for your healthy student(s) to be at school on time every day ready to learn. Please plan vacations around the school schedule.  Our job is to teach your child, and we are unable to do so if they are not present every day. We appreciate you partnering with us to provide the best possible education for your children. If you need to call your child in sick, please contact our Health Clerk Mrs. Denise Figueria. 

The school office is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on school days.  Our office telephone number is (408) 364-4279.  If you are reporting your child absent, you may call our 24-hour absence recorder at (408) 341-7132.

Students in Mrs. Ferrari's third grade class were given 2 pieces of construction paper, 12 inches of tape, a ruler and scissors. They had 30 minutes to construct the longest paper chain their team could make. In this one math lesson, students demonstrated all five Profile of a Graduate competencies. They communicated about how they were going to use the materials. They collaborated to make the chains and use the tape accordingly. They were self directed in the design process. They used their critical thinking skills to ensure they didn't run out of tape while trying to make the longest chain. They were empathic with each other when the chain would break and they had to start again. Our students are learning key competencies to ensure they graduate from the Campbell Union School District with the necessary skills for their future.

Please walk our campus with your child to review the PBIS behavior signs posted around our school. Also, please review the attachment with your child about the expected behavior for our campus. Students need to be able to explain the expected behavior for all locations on our campus. We need all families to support our after school behavior expectations. Students who are waiting for their older sibling to be dismissed need to wait quietly at the picnic tables. Students are not to be playing on the field or blacktop from 2:20-2:47. School is in session for grades 4th and 5th. Please wait by the tables near the cafeteria. Thank you for supporting our teachers and students. Also, if adults need to use the restroom, please come to main office. Student bathrooms are for children only.
