Village is unique in so many ways. Of course, our students learn traditional subjects like reading, writing and arithmetic, but where else (other than ‘The Farm’) can one train to be a spy or study the art of Jedi mind control? Learn more about two of our newest and most unique STEAM Centers to date, and beware the skills your budding secret agents and Jedi bring home!

Spies Among Us

By Amy, Spies Center Lead and Village Parent

Students in the brand-new Spies Center try their hand at investigative activities such as fingerprinting and cryptology while gaining a basic understanding of skills that secret agents use in their work. As one of the center leads, I (Amy, aka Blue Raven), developed the curriculum with the collaboration of Kindergarten Teacher Lori, Lead Amy (aka Silver Ninja), and Day Manager Allie (aka Green Hornet). The goal is to create an opportunity for students to have fun while they use creative thinking and deductive reasoning.

Students create a unique spy name and choose whether to share that name with their fellow spies, or remain incognito (only use their actual name) during the four weeks of centers. I enjoy watching students’ enthusiasm when I reveal my Harry Potter inspired spy name, “Blue Raven” and name badge at the start of centers. We added the option for students to conceal their spy name when one student pointed out that keeping your identity a secret is important for spies. When asked what he enjoyed about Spies Center, this student said, “The good stuff is making your spy name.”

In subsequent weeks, students use an alphanumeric code to create a corresponding Secret Agent ID number for their spy name and design a unique Spy Symbol which they replicate using invisible ink pens. They decipher codes, reveal secret messages using multiple methods, and try their hand at walkie talkies.

The center culminates with the Campus Mystery Scavenger Hunt when students don disguises and use the skills they have practiced to solve a crime (details omitted to avoid spoilers). Students almost unanimously agree with one student who said, “My favorite part of Spies was when we were looking for messages and clues.” The initiation of these new junior sleuths, who so eagerly collaborate in this final mission, is a fitting conclusion.

Jedi Mind Tricks

Q&A with Priya, Jedi Mind Tricks Lead and Village Parent

What exactly is the Jedi Mind Tricks Center? How was the curriculum developed?
The Jedi Mind Tricks Center, originally called the Brain Powers Center, is a brand new upper grade Center led by Village parents, Priya and Dorothy. The curriculum is based on the work of Marie Nathalie-Beaudoin in her book, Boosting All Children’s Social and Emotional Brain Power. Weaving together social-emotional skills and themes from Star Wars, we’ve tried to make this center a playful way to learn important life skills that we’ve termed “mind tricks.” We begin by explaining that the Jedi can’t control other people’s minds they way they show in the movies until they learn ways to understand and strengthen their own minds. We jokingly tell the kids, “mind control will be discussed in the sequel ‘Jedi Mind Tricks Center, Episode 2.’

Each week we teach the kids a new skill and practice using it with examples and in-class skits. Often the kids share examples from their own lives, exploring ways to resolve disappointments, disagreements, or general mishaps and mix-ups.

What are some of the Mind Tricks you work on?
Shrinking Power — the ability to shrink problems (solving problems)
Double Vision — the power to see what’s going on inside of someone else (empathy)
Choice Mind — the ability to weigh options and make better choices (non-reactivity and self-awareness)
Foresight — the ability to see the future (foreseeing the consequences of actions)

The kids have a great time acting out ways to handle tricky situations using their mind tricks!

What are you hoping students gain from the Center?
The Center helps kids to develop stronger coping skills and emotional regulation, but we don’t really tell them that. Our approach to teaching is playfulness. We bring out props like Jedi robes, lightsabers, brain hats, walkie-talkies, and more! In our last class we bring all the mind tricks together and then share some Jedi Jello.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?
One of the highlights from this year was one student’s response to the question, “Why are we even learning about this?” His response, “Because they help us with the M&M’s.” Yes! It was a powerful moment of integration.

By Amilia, Village Parent

I like to consider myself a world traveller. I love to visit new places where the language, culture, food, geography and general way of doing things are different. But, despite a good deal of experience on the global scene, the second graders at Village have me beat on at least one intriguing measure. Although I have visited a fair number of countries, I have certainly never created my own.

Yes, you heard me correctly! Our second graders created their own countries, complete with constitutions, laws, national flags, currencies and even national anthems. What sparked this exciting undertaking? 

Well, our second grade teachers, Chris and Elizabeth, started with a unit on Government. Students learned about how our government is structured, from our school, local (city) and state governments right up to our national government. They learned who the current people in charge are (president, governor, mayor, etc.), about the three branches of government, about how we vote in elections, about rules and laws and why we need to follow them. They studied government jobs — police, fire, teachers, librarians, park rangers, etc. — and even took a field trip to Campbell City Hall to meet some of these government workers, seeing firsthand where they work and how their offices are structured. 

While at city hall, students toured the police station, quietly observing the 911 Call Center, and more boisterously exploring a fully-loaded police car! The most memorable part of this field trip, though, was when students had the opportunity to conduct a mock city council meeting. They were assigned parts — City Council members, Secretary, Fire Station Chief, Police Chief and concerned community members — and given an agenda item to debate, ‘Should the city spend available funds on 2 new fire trucks or 5 new police cars?’ It was a delight and surprise to see how creative and bold our 7 and 8 years olds have become, and how thoughtfully they were able to consider and analyze the issue at hand. All voices having been heard, the ‘mock’ City Council member voted and passed a motion to purchase the police cars, rather than the fire trucks.

In past years, this is where our second grade unit on government would have concluded. But, not this year! Our teachers discovered a delightfully tongue-in-cheek, but informative, book about, How to Build Your Own Country by Valerie Wyatt and decided that, indeed, that is what our second graders should do!

And so, their foray into government and all of its institutions culminated in this final project — to create their own countries, complete with a name, a population, a location, a government, a constitution, laws, an economy, neighbors, a flag, currency, a national anthem, national holidays, etc. In full disclosure, students only had to choose a handful of these elements to develop, but the results were a dazzling array of interesting, creative, and often funny lands, and a wonderful insight into the thoughtful and honorable citizens whom we are raising… not to mention, a host of new and exciting places to add to my bucket list of global travel destinations!

Here are just a few of the many creative and inspired countries that our second graders envisioned:

  • The Kingdom of Donuts, where the citizens are donuts of all different colors and types, the language is called ‘donya’ and whose neighbors include the Republic of Cupcakes and Cookie Land
  • Empire of Vikingland, whose currency is in denominations of the lucky number 7, the President is chosen by Ro Sham Bo, the capital city is Hawking (named after famed physicist Stephen Hawking), and there are absolutely no guns allowed. 
  • Candyland, whose people are only a few inches tall and where everything is made of candy
  • Circus Land, where every citizen 10 or older must work in the circus once per month and the day cotton candy was invented is celebrated as a national holiday
  • United Gabes of America, where everybody is named Gabe and you must have President Gabe’s permission to use the restroom
  • Drawing Land, which is ruled by King Mateo and is the only monarchy created by the second grade class
  • Ultraland, an island in the Pacific Ocean where there is free housing and free education for all. They also manufacture tree houses as their primary export.
  • Costanzoe, which is the biggest and most powerful country in the world and whose land is under great threat of super volcanoes
  • Pokeland, a republic located on a planet called Pokeworld. Leaders are voted into power and citizens are not legally allowed to use weapons.
  • Loveable Land, where there are no laws and red roses everywhere
  • Super Trio, named for a combination of the student’s favorite superhero (Superman) and favorite number (3), where everybody over 4 is required to go to school and you are not allowed to swim in a pool unless you are 6 years or older.
  • L Island, where the most important law is that you cannot hurt anybody or use weapons.
  • Baile, which is an island country known for its dancers, where everybody is welcome and everybody has freedom of speech. Pomegranates are the most popular produce and, by law, all citizens must respect each other. Also, all young people must go to school, but can attend any school they choose.
  • Beachside Land, whose population of 900,000 all have equal rights
  • Living Joy, located in the student’s living room. No pets are allowed.

By Bev, Library Team Lead and Village Parent

By now you probably know that the library team is just plain crazy for books, authors, and reading! You may not know, however, that one of us (Lisa) is an aspiring children’s book author and participates in many writers’ groups and organizations in pursuit of her dream of one day being published.

It’s because of this connection to the literary world that Lisa was able to grant Village 3rd graders a very unique opportunity. In the fall, she participated in an online charity auction to support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Lisa bid on and won a classroom Skype visit with Debbie Levy, author of I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark as well as many other children’s books.

As the date for the visit approached, the kids, their teachers, and the librarians were all excited! Ms. Roberta and Ms. Aisling read I Dissent aloud to their classes and engaged the students in thinking up questions they’d like to ask Debbie about the book and being a published author.

Then, on the Friday before Thanksgiving break, the entire third grade packed into Teacher Aisling's classroom to digitally welcome Debbie to our school. The students saw her home office and met her 15+ year old cat Zoe. They heard all about her childhood love of books and writing, including seeing her first “published” works: Something Happened to Tuggy, and Fish, both of which she wrote in school at age 7. They learned that before becoming a published author, she earned a law degree as well as a master’s degree in politics, and worked as a newspaper editor.

Then it was on to questions the students had prepared:

Where did she go to college?
Debbie attended both the University of Virginia and University of Michigan.

How many drafts of I Dissent did she write?
Debbie estimated she had written about 20 drafts for I Dissent and finished the manuscript for the book in 5-6 months. She said this was a more accelerated timeline than most of her other books, and she showed the students a closet where she stores the many drafts from all her books (the students seemed very impressed with this!).

Is she friends with Ruth Bader Ginsburg?
No, she is not friends with RBG but she has met her and has a picture of the two of them together.

How did she find out so much about her?
To write the book, Debbie sent a letter to RBG asking for permission, and she got a reply saying yes! From there she researched everything she could about Ruth’s life and career. She went to the Library of Congress and read through all the information they had on her, which is contained in 180 boxes of materials!

What’s her favorite book she’s ever written?
The Year of Goodbyes: A True Story of Friendship, Family and Farewells, which is a book she wrote for and about her mother, who left Germany as a child with her family in 1938 during World War II.

Is she writing another book now?
Yes, she is currently working on another nonfiction book about a brave young woman who stood up to segregation in the south during the 1950s.

Debbie was kind, generous with her time, engaging with the kids, lovely and gracious. In addition to donating the classroom visit to the third grade, Lisa received four of Debbie’s other books and donated them to the Village library collection: Soldier Song: A True Story of the Civil WarWe Shall Overcome: The Story of a SongDozer’s Run: A True Story of a Dog and His Race; and The Year of Goodbyes: A True Story of Friendship, Family and Farewells. Debbie autographed all the books, and provided an autographed bookplate for library’s copy of I Dissent.

A huge thank you to Lisa and her family for sharing this amazing opportunity and experience with Village!

In December, amidst the frenzy of the holiday season and the wind-down (or, more accurately, wind-up) to Winter Break, Teacher Chris’ second grade class took some time to reflect on what giving back truly means. The Surfin’ Second Graders took a field trip to Toys for Tots, an organization that collects and delivers gifts during the holiday season to community children in need.

This outing fit nicely with the November/December Cornerstone theme of “Impact”. As part of the ABC reading program, all classrooms at Village read the book, Big by Coleen Paratore. This book discusses how to be a ‘big’ person, with ‘big’ defined not by size but by one’s perception of and interaction with the world at large. The author defines ‘big’ as being bright and imaginative, healthy, kind and helpful, friendly and valuable members of society.

Building on this theme, the Surfin’ Second Grade’s ABC Reader discussed with the class “ways to be active citizens to improve the world by committing to daily acts of caring and outreach in our community with acts of service.”

“Volunteering and service are powerful ways to build assets,” she explained to parents in a lovely follow-up email to her ABC lesson. “The research shows that service is powerful in helping kids succeed in all areas of life – health, friendships, school and self-esteem.”

As a lead-up to the field trip, Teacher Chris explained to students what the program is about, and how their volunteer service would help so many in our community, including children and families affected by the Bay Area fires. As one might expect, everybody was excited to be able to help others in a very hands-on way.

On the day-of, in a touching role-reversal from traditional Christmas order, students played the part of Santa, delivering gifts donated by their families to the Toys for Tots warehouse. Their excitement to “give” was heartfelt and a valuable lesson in and of itself. While at the warehouse, they helped the Marines who run the program sort gifts by age and gender. The field trip also offered opportunities for math practice (counting and tracking the number of gifts they sorted, estimating the total number, etc.), deduction and reasoning (determining how to categorize/sort each gift – girl/boy, age range), reading (category signs, gift box descriptions) and teamwork.

Finally, as a reward for all of their hard work, students were treated to a rare opportunity to explore and climb on an ENORMOUS marine transport truck. Even Teacher Chris was enthralled!

Our children are blessed to have so many opportunities at Village – from the fall Second Harvest Food Drive to the holiday Family Giving Tree program to the Stop Hunger Now initiative – to give back to the community and to extend their impact beyond the boundaries of our little school and into our global Village. I can’t think of a better way for them to grow 'big'!

A Message from Superintendent Viramontez

Our hearts go out to our fellow educators and families in Parkland, Florida, and we continue to send positive thoughts and prayers to this community so rocked by the recent, violent attack.  When a tragedy of this nature occurs, we also reassess our own preparedness to ensure our commitment to keeping our students and staff safe.

In Campbell Union School District, we have been diligent in our commitment to preparing our staff to ensure our students have a safe and supportive learning environment.  In light of this fact, I want to share information on these two topics:

  • Walk Out vs. Talk It Out
  • School Safety Procedures

* Download the full letter (English and Spanish) here or continue reading below.

Walk Out / Talk It Out

We are aware that many feel a desire to take an action to advocate for the safety of our students.  Many have taken the stance of “enough is enough.”  While we support families making their concerns and voices heard, we do not feel students missing valuable instructional time sends the desired message to those who can make legislative decisions. 

We are encouraging families and staff to consider alternatives to missing school time, including:

  • Contacting elected officials (,
  • Signing petitions, and
  • Participating in events outside of school hours, such as the local March for Our Lives event on Saturday, March 24, at 11 a.m., at San Jose City Hall.

Tragedies such as this are challenging for us all, especially in knowing how to talk to our children about these types of events without causing them to worry or become anxious and upset. Talking to your children, listening to them, and reassuring them that they are safe is important. The National Association of School Psychologists offers some pointers for talking to children about violence.  A copy is available here ( and via your school's weekly online flyers link.

School Safety Procedures

We are very committed to ensuring our students and staff are safe.  As a result, we consistently practice a variety of emergency situations, from earthquake to an intruder on campus drills. Our safety procedures, including sign-in and gate procedures, are developed with a safety consultant and in cooperation with local police and fire officials. Our training incorporates the same Incident Command System (ICS) protocols used by these first responders. ICS is a consistent structure and process to provide command, control, and coordination of emergency response. Information about our emergency procedures is also available on our district website at 

Our school staff formally trains for these various emergencies monthly and reviews each school site’s safety plan each year. We conduct our trainings with our safety consultants in collaboration with police and fire officials.

In addition to training for these emergency events, we also provide supports for students’ social-emotional needs.  We have multiple layers of school and community-based support systems in place to help students and families in times of crisis. We have school staff, such as psychologists, counselors and therapists as well as our community-based agencies, such as Uplift, First 5, and many other services coordinated through our School Linked Services (SLS) partnership.

We are consistently improving upon our supports and services, and as a result, we are adding two more features to our safety plans: 

  • A confidential Quick Tip service will be available for students or parents to report suspicious, illegal, or unsafe situations.
  • We are also beta-testing a new app, called ICS4schools, which will provide a fast, efficient and accurate system for reuniting students with their parents/guardians following an emergency situation.

Please know that we are committed to providing schools in which our students are safe, learning and thriving.  We will continue to offer trainings, supports and services to meet those responsibilities.

Meet two of our newest PTA members – Shannon, our Fundraising Chair, and Kathryn, our Secretary. Find out what brought them to Village and why they love our school.


Meet Shannon, PTA Fundraising Chair and Parent of 3

Please tell us a little about yourself. What is your professional background? What are your interests?
I work full time at Stanford University as the Assistant Director of Facilities and Capital Planning within the School of Humanities and Sciences. In my role I wear many different hats, including management of our multi-million dollar budget, oversight of our office operations, management of cafes located within our school, space management and I represent our department and programs on large capital building projects. It’s a unique and interesting role that keeps me busy. When I am not working or hanging out with my family, I love to golf and relax at the spa with good friends.

Tell us a little bit about your family. What are some things you and your family like to do for fun?
We are a family of five. My hubby and I have been married for 18 years and we have a freshman in high school, a fifth grader at Village and a preschooler. We enjoy traveling, especially to Disney, and spending weekends at our home in Strawberry (up past Pinecrest). We also enjoy lazy days around the house where we stay in our PJ’s all day and do nothing!

How many years has your family been at Village School?
Four years, we transferred in at 2nd grade.

What originally attracted you to Village, and what keeps you excited about being here?
What attracted us to the Village was the small community feel, where all parents are working together to create a positive environment for the students. What keeps me excited is seeing how my child has grown and thrived in this environment and the lasting friendships not only our daughter, but also our family has developed.

What are some of your favorite and most rewarding moments on campus?
My favorite moments on campus are when I get to see the community come together for events. There is always a lot of laughter and fun. I also love yard duty at the playground and talking with the kids about their interests. Making those connections with the kids is super rewarding.

How does your Board job (and those who report to you) work to serve the school community?
As fundraising chair, my team is working to raise money to ensure our programs such as Centers, Art and Music can continue to be supported. Additionally we try to make our events, such as Halloween Carnival and the Silent Auction, fun events for the community to come together, open their checkbooks and support our amazing school.


Meet Kathryn, PTA Secretary and Parent of 2

Our family is local. My husband and I both grew up around Campbell, have never had the desire to leave and have been fortunate enough not to have been pushed out because of housing prices. My husband, Chris, works just across the road from Village at Roku, which is a nice change from his long commutes to SF for his previous job. I grew up in Cupertino and then ended up teaching in the same school district where I went to school. I started my career as a teacher in Kindergarten and then moved to 3rd Grade. When kids came into the picture I tried my hardest to continue to be 100% in the classroom and 100% at home. It was hard to maintain so I went part-time. When my oldest child was ready to enter Kindergarten I had the opportunity to enroll her in Cupertino schools, but their intense and hyper-focused academics were a turn off to me. I didn’t want my daughter to feel that academic pressure from her teachers and her classmates. I also wanted her to have a more enriching school experience and be a kid a bit longer, before homework took over her life. My husband and I researched other schools and went back and forth with what was a good match for her. When we came across Village it checked off all our boxes, but there was the volunteer aspect that at first made it hard to commit. It was a priority to Chris and I that our daughter have a memorable educational experience, so I resigned from teaching and we committed to the Village experience!

Since being at Village I have met a wonderful parent community that cares about its children so much. Everyone is so welcoming and kind that I can see how hard it must be to move on as children go to middle school. I enjoy being on campus during my volunteer hours and spending time with teachers and students. I have made some great connections with students in addition to my own child. That has been really rewarding to me because, being a teacher, what I really miss is having those connections to students, where they are happy to have you around and look to you for help. I also like the opportunity to see my own child in her educational environment and how she interacts with her peers. I have learned a lot through volunteering and taking on different school jobs like Field Trip Coordinator and Class Coordinator. All have been rewarding in their own ways. I really thought this was kind of going to be the extent of my volunteering and school jobs, but then I was nominated and asked to be a part of the Board last year. I was honored that my peers felt that I could be valuable and contribute more.

I started this school year as Board Secretary and really have enjoyed getting to know the other Board members and seeing their passion for Village. I see firsthand the hard work that goes into making this school run smoothly and making sure we are doing right by our students. The Board is a group of fun professionals that I am so fortunate to know and work with. Just being a part of the Board has made me more invested in the school and it is an opportunity that I’m glad I took on.

This is our second year at Village and we have our youngest coming into Kindergarten next year. He is so excited and it feels like it will be an easy transition for him because he already feels he is part of the school just by coming to pick up his sister daily.
Even though I feel like we are at Village all of the time as a family, we do like to escape and get away. We enjoy going on outdoor excursions and hanging with friends. On the weekends our kids play sports, so most of the time you will find us at a baseball/softball field or soccer field. As parents, our real joy is watching our kids grow and thrive and I feel like Village plays a huge role in that.

I just hope that all parents and family members can see and feel how valuable our time here at Village is. It makes me happy to see that so many parents know who my child is and that is thanks to all of the parent volunteering. This would never be the case at any other public school. We are privileged that we can spend so much time on campus with our children and their peers. Just keep showing up and being there for the community because, if we can’t be there then Village isn’t Village anymore.
