In an effort to alleviate continued neighborhood concerns, the Campbell Police Department has informed us that officers will be present at drop-off and pick-up times to enforce all traffic laws.

Specifically, they will ticket drivers who are lined up on the roadways on Virginia, Chapman, or Steinway prior to the dismissal bell.  Drivers are expected to either legally park and walk to campus or continue to safely drive around the neighborhood until the official end of the school day.

We appreciate our community's collective effort to abide by traffic laws.

Our annual Back to School Night will be held on Thursday, September 24.  Parents will learn about curriculum, instruction, and Common Core State Standards.  Session I will be from 6:15 – 6:45 for grades 3, 4, and 5.  Session II will be from 6:50 – 7:20 p.m. for grades TK, K, 1, and 2.  While we do have several kid-centered events throughout the year, including the Walk-a-Thon, Fall Festival, Spring Fling, and Science Night, Back to School Night is for adults only.  This will allow our teachers quiet uninterrupted time to present information about grade-level instruction, classroom expectations, and academic programs.  Thank you for your support.

In conjuction with EMQ Families First, Capri will host this fall's Strengthening Families Classes beginning the evening of October 6th.  Dinner and child care are provided.

The Strengthening Families Program teaches parenting skills and children’s life skills in a positive environment to increase family strengths and resilience. It also helps to improve social skills, school performance and increase positive family interactions.

The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) includes fourteen weeks of 2 ½ hour sessions. Each session starts off with a dinner for the family.  Parents and children participate individually to learn new skills and then come together as a whole family to practice the new skills they have learned.   SFP has been shown to significantly reduce problem behaviors such as aggression and non-compliance to encourage a stronger sense of family and support.

The program is limited to 12 families, so please contact Mr. Cribari via email at or Ms. Escorcia at if you wish to particpate or have any questions.

Officials from the State of California will be releasing scores from the State’s new testing system in September, not August, as originally planned.

“We are taking an abundance of caution to ensure that the substantial amount of data we are receiving is properly collected and placed in new files on a new site,” said Department of Education spokeswoman Pam Slater. “Additionally, the department will be launching a new website to display the results and needs sufficient time to test the new site.”

Campbell Union School District (CUSD) students participated in the new testing system, known as Smarter Balanced, last spring. The assessments are computer-based tests that measure student knowledge of California’s English Language Arts and Mathematics standards for grades 3-8.

“We’re glad they want everything to be accurate and complete before sending out the official reports,” said CUSD Superintendent Eric Andrew. “This year’s scores are a new baseline for measuring student progress, and we all want them to be reliable.”

Andrew said teachers have multiple ways to measure student achievement, so they can still tailor instruction to the student’s needs and talk to parents about how to continue progress on meeting standards.  When the assessment data comes in, it will be added to the mix, he said.

State officials plan to release scores to schools in early September, and if all goes according to plan, parents would see official student score reports in the fall. They also caution against comparing scores from the new tests with those from old tests. The new tests are too fundamentally different from the old ones to make any reliable comparisons between the two, they said.

On Tuesday, August 18th at 5:00 pm, tentative class lists will be posted on the windows of the Health Office, Main Office, and Room 8.  To ensure confidentiality, student names will not appear.  Please have your 5 digit student ID number with you.

As with all beginnings, there is a period of transition.  For the first few weeks of school, enrollment fluctuates as students move into Capri's boundaries, and we balance class sizes.  Class assignments are tentative until that point.

When: Tuesday, August 11th

Where: Capri Cafeteria

Parent Information Meeting:  From 8:00 and 8:20 a.m., teachers and school administration will share information about our kindergarten program, daily schedule, and campus logistics.  We want the first day to run as smoothly as possible for our families and incoming kindergarteners!  Please plan to attend.

Kindergarten Round Up:  So that our teachers may have an opportunity to individually assess our incoming kindergarteners, appointment times have been mailed to all registered kindergarten families at Capri.   As schools have little to no academic data on kindergarteners, we hope you can make every effort to arrive at your scheduled appointment time.  Please contact the school at 408-364-4200 ext. 4651, or email Karen Eshoff at if you need a different time that day or if you have not received a letter.

We look forward to seeing all of our kindergarteners and families!

Thank you to our PTA, our ELAC Committee, our ABC Cornerstone and Los Dichos readers, and our fabulous parent community for the wonderful events, outstanding programs, and successful fundraisers this year. We’d also like to thank our parent volunteers for helping in the classrooms, chaperoning field trips, running copies, preparing Thursday envelopes and performing a variety of other helpful tasks to support our students throughout the year.

Capri’s annual LCAP (Local Control and Accountability Plan) will be going to the Board of Trustees for approval in June. Thank you to our staff, students, and parents for sharing your input and offering suggestions for our 2015-16 school goals. Our four goals are:

  1. All students will receive high quality instruction in Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards from high quality teachers in 21st century classrooms.
  2. Measurement of academic indicators will show an increase of students meeting grade level standards by 3-5% each year.
  3. Students will receive sufficient and appropriate tiered supports that promote and sustain their positive social/emotional development that enables them to learn and thrive in their classrooms.
  4. Parents will feel encouraged and invited to participate in their child’s learning experiences both at school and at home.
