You're Needed for 8th Grade Exhibitions

Volunteer panelists needed to listen to students’ presentations.

Even if your child is not yet in 8th grade, volunteering as a panelist is a great way to get to know the process and help the students have this authentic public speaking experience.

The Eighth Grade Exhibition project is a promotion requirement for all 8th grade students.  The pupils have researched topics, planned and completed a project related to their topics, and are ready to present their findings to panelists who will listen and evaluate their performance.  

It’s Easy!  We’ll show you what to do and even provide some refreshments!

If you are available any of the times listed below or have quesitons about being involved as a judge, please respond to Stephanie Day: sday [at] campbellusd.org (sday [at] campbellusd.org) or 408-364-4200, ext. 6244.

Yes, I would like to be a volunteer panelist:

Students Need You to Apply to Oversight Committee

District seeks applicants for Citizens Oversight Committee that oversees use of bond and parcel tax revenues.

Campbell Union School District is accepting applications now to fill two vacancies on its Citizens Bond and Parcel Tax Oversight Committee. Applications are available now online or by contacting Christina Tran, Campbell Union School District, ctran [at] campbellusd.org, 408-364-4200 ext. 6215.

The District operates classes for preschool-through-eighth-grade students from the communities of Campbell, Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, San Jose, Santa Clara, and Saratoga.  The bond funds help to repair and improve the district’s 12 elementary and middle schools. Parcel tax funds support instructional programs that directly benefit students. The Board-appointed independent citizens committee reviews school district spending and ensures that bond and parcel tax revenues are spent only for the purpose set before the voters.

Oversight Committee members represent various parts of the community: businesses, senior citizens, taxpayer organizations, and parents of students enrolled in the District.   These members serve for a term of two years without compensation and for no more than two consecutive terms.  (Education Code Section 15282(a))

Wellness: a District and Community Endeavor

“We are fortunate to have extensive community partnerships that bolster our ability to support the whole child academically, emotionally and behaviorally and free our teachers to teach,” said District Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “We’ve worked with local agencies and our Wellness Committee to establish community partnerships and secure grants that provide a reliable system of supports beyond the classroom for students and their families."
