Dear Parents,

There have been a number of special events over the past few weeks. Our 5th graders really enjoyed Colonial Day on May 8th. Thanks to the many volunteers that worked so hard to provide our students with such a great experience of life during colonial times. Last Friday, our 4th graders experienced what life might have been like in 1849 during the California Gold Rush. Events such as these are the kinds of activities that students remember and help to make learning come alive. Thanks to the many parents who helped make these events possible. We would not be able to do it without you!

Speaking of special events, two new ones for the Campbell Union School District occurred over the past week. Our first ever Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) performance took place on May 13th. Twenty-one of our 4th grade students sang with students from Sherman Oaks. A combination of musicians from all three of the middle schools played several selections. For the finale, the elementary school students sang “America” accompanied by the orchestra. It was a very impressive performance! Thanks to our music teacher, Mrs. Sharon Rosen, for teaching and directing our students. A special thanks to the students who performed and their parents for making it possible for them to attend.

On Saturday, May 16th, the district held a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math— STEAM Showcase at Monroe Middle School. What an amazing event! There were lots of displays and hands-on activities for the students and their parents. Thanks to Campbell Care Leader Kevin Theobold, and teachers Jyh Wong, Bindi Gill, and Sharon Hirsh for serving on our school site STEAM committee and for assisting at the STEAM Showcase on Saturday.

As we begin to look forward to the 2015-2016 school year, our staff will begin to form classes for next year. Various criteria that include, but are not limited to, gender, academic level, English Language Learner status, learning style, special needs, and behavior are all taken into consideration in placing students in classes. If there is any specific information that you believe that we need to know about your child in making placement decisions, a form is available in the office for that purpose. It needs to be turned in by Wednesday, May 27th. Since our goal is to have balanced classes, requests for specific teachers will not be accepted. Thank you in advance for respecting this process.

As always, we appreciate your help and support.

Warm Regards,

Priscilla Spencer, Principal

With all of the special events that are occurring at this time of year, there are more parents on campus than usual. Please be respectful of our teachers and other staff members by not parking in any of the parking spots that are labeled “staff”. Thank you in advance for being considerate.

In March, our Student Senate sponsored a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Children brought in their change to donate for this good cause. Believe it or not, they raised $3,505.36! Thanks to everyone who participated, the Student Senate, and their mentor teachers—Mrs. Glantz and Mrs. Rose.

Dear Marshall Lane Parents,

What a great Walkathon event we had last Friday! All of the students really seemed to enjoy themselves. We appreciate all of the families who attended the after school portion of the event. A special thanks to the Walkathon core committee—Agnes Amistoso, Dawn Byron, Miranda Meisenbach, Marcia Kennedy, and Shelley Feiven-Alleston. We also appreciate the leads— Mark & Esther Mantelli, Lauren Froman, Brad Hunt, Colleen Balough, Chelsea O’Neill, Tonni Cordani, Heather Boger, Amanda Williams, Stacey Siebold, Jeannie DaQuino, John Ross and Miranda’s mom, Theresa. A special thanks to the main organizer—Gini Bellawalla and her husband, Yacoub. Gini has been involved in the Walkathon throughout her time at Marshall Lane. This is her last year and she will be greatly missed. Thank you, Gini!

Each year, our district collects information from parents, students, and staff members about various aspects of our school program. Parent surveys will be coming home next week. Please fill them out and return them as quickly as possible. We appreciate your help with collecting this important information. Thank you!

Students in 3rd to 5th grades and staff members will also be taking the survey online at school during the week of May 11th.

As always, thank you for your participation and ongoing support.

At last count, we had 265 coats, sweaters and sweatshirts on our Lost and Found racks. In addition, there are also numerous backpacks, lunchboxes, water bottles, and hats that have not been claimed. If your child has lost anything at school, please have them check the racks or try to do so yourself when you are on campus. At the end of the school year, all remaining items will be donated. Thanks! We appreciate the ongoing efforts of Christine Walker and other helpful parents who continually organize the Lost and Found racks.
