Jog A Thon

Grab your TENT and join us at the CASTLEMONT CAMP GROUND to help our CAMPERS have a successful HIKE at this year's Jog-A-Thon.  We need volunteers to be sure the CAMPERS have a great time and are not distracted by the majestic FOREST. 

Schedule:  The students will run in three groups.   Warm-ups begin 15 minutes prior to start time.

TK/K/1 grades:  8:50 to 9:20 a.m.

2/3 grades:  9:30 to 10:10 a.m.

4/5 grades:  10:20 to 11:10 a.m.

Volunteers:  If you’ve signed up to volunteer, please check in at the volunteer table (located on the playground near room 19) to get your name tag.  If you haven’t signed up yet and can help, please check at the volunteer table on the day of the event

Pledge Forms: There are two ways to raise money and earn prizes: per lap pledges and flat pledges. 

Per lap pledges will be turned in after students have run.  Please collect and turn in all pledge money by Friday, June 1. Extra pledge forms are in the office.

Lunch: Please provide your child’s usual lunch.  Hot lunch will be available as usual. Each child will get an Otter Pop snack after they run.

T-Shirts: Each student will receive a Jog-A-Thon shirt on Friday.  A limited number of t-shirts will be for sale for adults and younger siblings at the Jog-A-Thon for $10.

In August, our School Site Council will have three openings typically filled by our parents. The Council is one of the most important decision-making groups at Castlemont and is composed of five parent/community members and five representatives from the school’s staff.

The Council reviews the school plan annually, establishes a budget, makes modifications as necessary, and assists in the evaluation of the school’s programs. Members are elected by the groups that they represent. Parent and community representatives and alternates are elected for a two-year term.

Over the summer, please consider becoming a candidate for School Site Council and be watching for more information to come in August.

300 guests came to celebrate literacy expression in its many forms

The Campbell Library was a-buzz as 300 people—students, families, teachers and principals—came out for Campbell Union School District’s 40th annual Writing Faire. The event features displays of student writing and celebrates literacy expression in its many forms.

Families clustered around the library stacks to read the stories, poems and reports as their students excitedly explained their work to them. 

Adding to the excitement was a drawing for prizes donated by Assistance League Los Gatos-Saratoga, Office Depot, and others, cookies from the Friends of the Campbell Library, and a green-screen photo booth to commemorate the anniversary.

  • Make good decisions
  • Keep yourself and others around you safe.

As the school year is winding down, we’d like to remind you that we want to promote and model good eating choices for our students. Prior to bringing any food items for the class, parents must first get teacher approval. Parents can then bring a healthy treat such as popcorn, fruits, vegetables, crackers and cheese for curriculum related celebrations. ​If you choose to bring a beverage, water is preferred. Cupcakes, cakes, brownies, donuts, ice cream and other sugary treats, soda, and high fructose beverages will not be permitted. Thank you for supporting our students’ good health at school.
