Campbell School of Innovation Will Have a Design Thinking Focus.
Opening for Grades TK-4 and Growing to TK-8 by 2022.

A new school is coming to Campbell in 2018. The Campbell School of Innovation, a public school for transitional kindergarten through eighth grade is being hailed as a catalyst for changing the landscape of learning in Campbell Union School District.

“Our society is changing rapidly,” said Dr. Shelly Viramontez, Superintendent of the Campbell Union Elementary School District. “It’s critical that all of our students gain the kind of enduring skills and knowledge they’ll need for successful careers: creative problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. Campbell School of Innovation will lead that effort for all of our schools.”

Please see the full story on the Campbell Union School District home page for details about the program, construction and enrollment.

“Can it be that IB is for me?!” is the first in a series of parent education and student support seminars presented by the IB Parent Organization. The International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme offers a rigorous and high quality education to all of its students. The types of research, writing, thinking and communication of ideas that IB courses require reflect college level expectations. IB not only helps students get into college, but more importantly, prepares students to be successful in college once they are there.  (On facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ibatdelmar)

On October 31st at 9:00 we will have our annual Halloween Parade on the upper and lower yard of our campus. As a reminder it is our policy, and will be strictly enforced, that students may not wear any kind of masks to school on Halloween. Students may dress up in their costumes for the parade and will need to have a change of clothes to put on following the parade. All toys that resemble weapons are not allowed even if they are part of your child's costume, please remove them before they come to school in the morning. As a reminder face paint/makeup covering the entire face is also not allowed for the parade, students will be asked to remove this face paint/makeup. We will have some fun activities set up in the library for our students who would prefer to not participate in the Halloween parade as well. REMINDER: As always, there are NO DOGS ALLOWED.
