We have really enjoyed having the children and teachers back in school. The students are adjusting well and instruction is underway. The teachers spent a lot of time in September building classroom communities and setting expectations. This has really contributed to a smooth opening.
Below are a few items of interest to parents:
Campbell PTA Minutes September 10, 2013
- Reminder: Remember to re-link your Giant, Safeway, Harris Teeter, and Target cards to Campbell. This is free $$$ for our school.
- For the 2013-2014 school year, we expect income to be $73,254. Expenditures are projected to be $66,512, so we project a net gain of $6,741. These are very conservative estimates. Fundraising last year was very successful, so we have a good cushion for this year.

Long Term Odyssey of the Mind Problems 2013-2014 (non-competitive)
Primary: Grades K-2
Primary: The World’s First Art Festival Grades K-2 The team’s problem is to create and present an original humorous performance about a prehistoric art festival. The festival will include artwork, dance, music, song, and — of course — a team-created audience to experience it all. The team will also create a backdrop that is a replica of a cave painting.
- Website is up! If you go to http://campbellschool.org/ you'll see our fancy new website. You should be able to log into the website and have the role of Editor, which means that you can create and edit content on the site at will.
Earlier in the summer I requested feedback and topics for Principal’s Chats. Several parents said earlier was better, while others said the morning is hectic. So we’ll compromise. We’ll try an 8:00 start time this year and see how that impacts attendance. We can try to end by 9:00 so that parents who need to get to work can do so. I have the first two topics identified. We can determine the others as things evolve. Often topics come up at PTA meetings that warrant further discussion.
We’ve talked some about changing the PTA website to be easier for people to manage this year. Can we brainstorm for a bit about what we’d like the website to do?
