This year marks our school's 20th anniversary. Past Village parent Heidi King donated her time and talents to create a special logo for our year of celebration!
Walking is a fun and healthy way to spend time with your child.
In Campbell Union School District, we encourage parents and students to walk or bike to school every Wednesday. For those who live too far, try parking farther away from the school and walking the last block or two.
Since children learn by doing, YOU are your child’s most important role model for learning to walk safely. As you walk, please:
- Obey all traffic signs and signals.
- Look LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT for moving cars, and cross when clear.
- Time yourself. Practice this weekend to find out how much time to allow.
- Check the weather and dress appropriately (boots, rain coat, umbrella, etc.).
As you walk, you can talk with your child about what you’re doing and explain why.
A Message from the Superintendent
Parents often ask me: “When will I find out the results of my child’s tests?”
Each year our teachers administer several assessments to determine student growth and inform their classroom teaching practice. These assessments—tests, quizzes, class projects, and the like—provide multiple ways to measure student progress towards learning the important concepts they need for success in school and in the community at-large.
Our assessment cycle includes dates we report results throughout the year. Also, our teachers are available to discuss student progress with the parents.

After the parade, all kids must change out of costumes (so students should wear school clothes underneath or bring some!).

Message from Principal David
Our state has released the results of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). Our third through fifth grade students participated in this assessment during the Spring.
Individual student reports will be mailed to your home within the next two weeks. The link below will help you
interpret these results. There is also link embedded for a short video that may help you and look for tabs that will allow you to view the overall results for all schools in California.
Message from Superintendent Eric Andrew, Ed.D.
The scores are in! This year’s scores are better thought of as a starting point or baseline for the progress we expect students to make over time. We see these tests as an academic checkup. Similar to class assignments and report cards, they are just one measurement in a set of tools on student progress used to provide you and your child’s teacher(s) with information about your student’s work toward the high goals we have set.
The assessment results indicate our students performed well in some content areas and need more support in other content areas. We expect to see both individual and district student achievement growth in subsequent administrations of the CAASPP assessments.
Once the official results are received, your child’s teacher(s) will use them to help set learning goals for his/her students this year. A copy of the results will also be sent to you in midOctober.
If you have questions or concerns about the report, please talk with with your student’s teacher(s) to arrange a conference.
Please take a moment to answer a short survey* about our school and district websites.
Campbell Union School District redesigned its school and district websites to be easier to use on all types of digital devices AND to make it easier for parents to find the information they seek most often. Your answers to survey will help us reach those expectations and to refine and improve our websites for those who use them. The survey closes October 16th.
