Ideas and questions about a new TK–8th-grade school filled the walls at the District's first Community Input Forum. A second forum is planned for June 12.

The community is invited to the District's second Community Input Forum to provide feedback on short- and long-term decisions relating to creating our new school on the Campbell Middle School site. The meeting will be held Monday, June 12, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m., at Campbell Middle School.

The District is seeking ideas and suggestions about elements of the Transformation Team's recommendation, which includes which grades will be enrolled in the school's first few years, the theme for the school, site plans, and more. 

Students, families, employees, neighbors—all those who have an interest in development of the school—are welcome.

For more information about the school transformation, contact the District's Public Information Office: 408-341-7254 / contact [at]

Friday is Castlemont's annual Jog-A-Thon. We're looking forward to seeing you there!

The HSC is still accepting donations towards the Jog-A-Thon t-shirts. The cost of the shirts is $7 each and we would greatly appreciate donations to help off-set the cost.

Also, volunteers are still needed to help on Friday. Without the help of volunteers, the Jog-A-Thon would not be possible. If you haven't signed up, you can still volunteer by checking in at the volunteer table on the large playground. For more information or to volunteer to help with the Jog-A-Thon, you can also email Emily at eloek [at]
