Upcoming Events

5th Grade Promotion Ceremony

On Tuesday, June 6th we celebrated our 5th Graders.

Mr. Brown presenting a promotion certificate to a student

We had perfect weather for our promotion ceremony held outside in front of our lovely Capri Mural.  Mr. Brown and Mrs. Eshoff handed out promotion certificates to all of our 5th grade students. 

After the conclusion of the ceremony, Mrs. Vander Kooi let the students around campus for a parade.  Our 5th graders were cheered on by the younger students, many holding signs of congratulations and encouragement.

After the younger students were dismissed the 5th graders had a pizza and Ice cream lunch (thank you PTA for providing the funds for lunch).

The afternoon ended with music, dancing, yearbook signing, and reminiscing about their days at Capri.

Thank you, Mrs. McGriff, Mrs. Vander Kooi, and Mrs. Welsh for re-imagining our 5th grade promotion during this pandemic year.

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for your understanding, flexibility, and hard work as this school year has been like no other.  From zoom classes to hybrid instruction, to full re-opening, you have been fantastic.  Our teachers and staff have been called “superheroes” well, that can also be said for our parent community.   Thank you for making sure your student(s) arrived on time ready to learn at whatever stage we were in.  We also thank you for your kind words of support along the way.  

As restrictions continue to loosen, I hope you will find time to enjoy the summer with family and friends.  Until next year, be well and stay safe.  Enjoy!

 

In Any Language, These Students are Winners

Students earn county award for bilingual/biliteracy achievement

Thirty-nine Campbell Union School District (CUSD) students are earning the Middle School Pathway Award Towards the Seal of Biliteracy Award this year from the Santa Clara County Office of Education, marking a milestone toward earning the State Seal of Biliteracy at the end of high school. 

The Pathway award recognizes students who, by the end of 5th and/or 8th grade, have demonstrated a commitment to becoming biliterate and who have reached a degree of proficiency in both English and at least one another language. Some of the 39 students earned the award for proficiency in multiple languages, including: Farsi, French, Greek, Hindi, Japanese, Kannada, Mandarin, Marathi, Russian, Sanskrit, Serbo-Croation, Spanish and Tamil.

“We’re proud of these students’ achievements. The process is rigorous and they persevered through challenging tasks during a pandemic and remote learning,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “Research indicates that being bilingual and biliterate fosters mental dexterity, builds cultural appreciation, and validates the rich cultural backgrounds of our students.”

To earn the award, the CUSD students had to complete an oral presentation in their target language, reach an identified proficiency level in English-Language Arts, and be students in good standing who are classified as either English Only (EO), Reclassified Fluent English Proficient (RFEP), or English Learner (EL), and take at least one year in a World Language.

“We offer students opportunities to learn languages and build cultural competency so they can have success in our schools and beyond. If they go on to earn the Seal of Biliteracy in high school, their efforts can be evidence of skills that are attractive to future employers and college admissions offices,” said Denise Kilpatrick, Coordinator of English Language Development Programs.
