Safety of our children, both physical and emotional, is the highest priority at Marshall Lane. Arrival and dismissal times can be stressful as families and students rush or linger at school. It is vital that we model the patience and respect we want our children to take into their future.

Please allow yourself time to find parking or plan to walk to school if you are not arriving early enough to complete drop off or pick up in a timely manner. Please be respectful of marked parking stalls and any traffic cones. The middle row of parking places are reserved for staff members.  Please avoid parking in these out of respect for our hard working employees.

Remember that the outside lane is for dropping students off or picking them up.  Please wait patiently for your turn and do not pull in front of the line of cars that are waiting or into the bus area.  Students need to be dropped off and picked up from the passenger side of your vehicle.

Also, please be thoughtful of our neighbors and do not park in front of driveways, obey the parking signs, and be courteous of pedestrian and automobile traffic. We need YOU to help us keep our students and families safe.  Thank you!

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.”

This month’s ABC book: “Giraffes Can’t Dance” by Giles Andreae tells the story of Gerald the giraffe who is able to dance to his own tune when he gets some encouraging words from an unlikely friend.

Goals of the lesson:

  • Students learn about personal power and practice using their positive personal power to benefit both themselves and others.
  • Students learn that making other people feel good is a great way to fill their own buckets, too!

To reinforce this lesson at home:  

  • Create opportunities to encourage your child to try new things.
  • Offer praise for their willingness to try and practice.
  • Whenever they’re in a negative situation, help your child “switch the channel” to reframe their inner dialogue to create an “I can do it!” attitude.
  • Remind your child: Don’t focus on the black dot. Focus on the white page.
  • Involve children of all ages in family decision making.

Quick Tip: Teach your child practical skills such as how to change a tire, cook a couple of meals, or sew on a button. Well-prepared young people are more likely to feel a sense of personal power.

When you “catch” kids modeling positive behaviors...Notice, Name it, and Celebrate it!

At Marshall Lane, one goal that we have for our students is that they will become lifelong learners.  One of the best ways to encourage our students to demonstrate a growth mindset is to have an ongoing focus on learning something new every day ourselves.

Over 60 parents attended Literacy Night this year to learn how to help their students at home to become better learners. A huge thanks to Sharon Hirsch and Jodie Topping who conducted a very helpful informational workshop and organized babysitting so parents could attend.  The feedback was outstanding.

Parent University for our district was held at Monroe Middle School on October 15th.  Several of our families attended and benefitted from hearing a keynote address by our Superintendent Dr. Shelly Viramontez and our CUSD Board Members.  Parents were also able to attend three 45 minute workshops on topics of interest to them. Thanks to Nedda Ashjaee, Jodie Topping, and Chrissie Ulrey for being members of a parent panel that helped attendees by answering their questions during two of the sessions.
