Getting to know—really getting to know—your neighborhood school is important for families about to enroll their children into Kindergarten. Campbell Union School District offers several ways to help families do just that.

First, confirm which is your neighborhood school by using the district’s “Find Your School” link.

Next, learn about your neighborhood school in one of these ways:

Please visit our Enrollment website for more details about
registering your child for the 2023-24 school year.


The
First 5 of California website also offers parents some guidance about what to consider when choosing a school.

Families wishing to request a school other than their neighborhood school will need to participate in the Open Enrollment period that begins January 17th.

Forest Hill Family Trivia Night

Principal's weekly newsletter. Thanks to PTA for a fun family trivia night!

Dear Forest Hill Parents,

Last night our PTA hosted our very first Trivia Night, which was well attended and a fun family event. There was plenty of food and drinks (in fact we sold out of pizza!) and families had the option of teaming up with others or playing as a family team. Thank you so much to Christina Curtin for organizing and emceeing the event. 

 

Some of the questions were very difficult to answer! Did you know that San Jose State is the oldest school in the Cal State University system, and used to be called San Jose Normal School (teaching colleges were called Normal Schools)? Did you know Garrett Morgan invented the traffic signal? Did you know that all the fifth graders seem to know the words to The Corn Song? Neither did we! 

 

PTA Did a wonderful job of including questions that were for the adults as well as for the children and had various genres for each round, including a name that tune round! Fun was had by all, and teams won some great prizes, including tickets to cut the lunch line, some retro Forest Hill apparel, baked goods from a Forest Hill family, and 4 students will get to silly string the Principals on Friday! They are definitely looking forward to that.

 

Another event that occurred last night, and will be open again Thursday and Friday, is our Scholastic Book Fair, which is being run by Mrs. Gregory-Bryson. It is a great chance for parents to come see our new library location and shop for some great books, accessories, toys and posters. All proceeds from this book event go directly to our library program.

 

As always, it is a pleasure to see families on campus and we thank you for your participation and support for our events. We look forward to seeing you at the next PTA event!

 

Lastly, we would like to remind you that on Friday, December 2nd, we are having our December Coffee with the Principal and have a guest speaker, Mary Eschen, who will be presenting on Love & Logic. 

 

Warmly,

 

Ms. Chalfant, Principal

Schools Add Narcan to Emergency Response Kits

Part of Statewide Effort to Protect Children from Fentanyl Overdose

The safety of our students and community is always our top priority.

Recently, news outlets have been raising awareness about a drug called “Fentanyl” and “Rainbow Fentanyl”. Brightly-colored Rainbow Fentanyl can be found in many forms, including pills, powder, and blocks that can resemble candy or sidewalk chalk (photo below). rainbow fentanyl looks like chalkFentanyl is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. See the California Department of Health's Alert on Rainbow Fentanyl.

As we work together to keep our students and community safe, we would like to call your attention to this issue and ask parents to take some time to speak with your children about this danger. Any pill (regardless of its color, shape, or size) that does not come from a health care provider or pharmacist can contain fentanyl and can be deadly. Prevention is key to saving lives.

While we hope to never need to use it, we plan for the worst case scenario and hope it never comes to that. Our District will have a supply of Narcan, a medication that when administered rapidly enough can reverse an opioid overdose, available at all of our school sites. Key district and school-based staff are being trained to administer Narcan. (See information from the California Department of Public Health.)
