A Message from Superintendent

Dear CUSD Families:
As another school year closes, I want to thank you for being our partner in providing the highest quality educational programs possible for all of our students. 
We made great strides in 2017-18, refining our focus on preparing students for the rigors, challenges and opportunities of their future. I look forward to working together on that important job in the coming school year.
For now, I thank you, and I hope you and your family will take the time to enjoy some well-deserved summer fun.  

Sincerely,
Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D.
Superintendent

On Tuesday, June 12, at 10:00 am in the Event Center, we will be honoring many of our 8th graders for their success during their time at Monroe.  Families of students receiving awards have been notified.

Updated Tue, Jun 5th

Please join us on June 13 at 9:00 am for the 8th grade Promotion Ceremony.  8th graders participating in the ceremony must be in the Event Center, dressed, no later than 8:30 am. The ceremony will take place on the back blacktop at the corner of Clifton and Genevieve.  Parents may start finding seats at 8:00 am; seats are first-come, first-served. 

Balloons, flowers, and other gifts will be available for purchase, as will coffee, water, and breakfast goodies.  If you bring/purchasse balloons for your 8th grader, we will have students collecting them to check them in so that they are not blocking audience views during the ceremony.  If you bring umbrellas or other shade devices, please sit on the edges so that you do not block views. Please do not bring noise makers.

If you have younger children at Monroe whom you would like to see their older siblings' Promotion Ceremony, you can check them out from the office just like you would if you were taking them to the dentist; if you choose to have them return to class after the ceremony, you can check them back into the office.

A Message from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D.

We want students to begin to own their own learning, be empowered, and actively engage in their education. For that reason, we must give students a voice and hear directly from them about what they like, want and feel they need in their school experience.

chart of participation data

To gather that input, we chose a Student Voice ThoughtExchange, an easy-to-use and interpret method with questions for our students in grades 3-8.Nearly all of them participated in the April 2018 online forum, sharing their thoughts and ideas with us and each other. The district- and school-level results are available online and from your child's school. They offer valuable information for school and district plans aimed at providing students with an education beyond the expected.

300 guests came to celebrate literacy expression in its many forms

The Campbell Library was a-buzz as 300 people—students, families, teachers and principals—came out for Campbell Union School District’s 40th annual Writing Faire. The event features displays of student writing and celebrates literacy expression in its many forms.

Families clustered around the library stacks to read the stories, poems and reports as their students excitedly explained their work to them. 

Adding to the excitement was a drawing for prizes donated by Assistance League Los Gatos-Saratoga, Office Depot, and others, cookies from the Friends of the Campbell Library, and a green-screen photo booth to commemorate the anniversary.
