100th day of school

The 100th Day of School will be this Thursday, March 3.  Elementary schools often recognize the 100th day as a way to help young students develop number sense.  We are asking students to wear as much of their favorite
color as they can. For example, wearing a red shirt and pants.  Classes will use the colors to create data in a grade appropriate manner.  Our hope is that this would not require families to purchase any items.    Just a reminder that March 3rd
is a half day due to conferences. 

Book Fair Now Open

The Campbell Book fair is now open and classes have begun making wish lists. You may send in money with your child or come to the school to purchase books. In addition, teachers have compiled wishlists for the classrooms. If you are interested in purchasing books from teachers' wishlists please find these books in the Story Room of the Campbell Library. Thank you for all your support!
