Principal's Message

Dear Campo Family,

Welcome back and Happy New Year! I hope all of you enjoyed your winter break with families and friends. It is only the second week of the semester and already there are several things to celebrate.

We did it! We met the criteria to apply to be a certified Common Sense School. As a campus we agreed that digital citizenship is an important part of what our students need and we all stepped up to make these lessons a meaningful part of our campus culture. By preparing our students to use technology safely and responsibly, we are providing
them an opportunity to build lifelong habits to help them succeed in a tech-driven world. We will also continue including digital citizenship tools and resources regularly into our newsletter for our parents and community.

Our A Plus Application was submitted last week and was extremely well written. We will be notified next week if we will receive a visit. At this point, I am extremely proud of what we submitted and know we truly are deserving of a visit. Stay tuned for an update next week.

I am pleased to announce Central Christian Church has selected Campo again this year for their mobilize project. Last year over a hundred community members came together to put up 27 bulletin boards. I look forward to working with them to create another meaningful project that will service our campus.

Below there is a flyer to the GPS Run for Fun registration. GPS would like to share a 20% discount with the code LOVEGPS.

Thank you for your continuous support.

Krista Cox, M. Ed.

Course Selection for 2020-2021

Current Campo 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students,

It is time to start selecting courses for the 2020-2021 school year! It is extremely important that students select the correct courses and add alternates this year. In order to accurately accommodate student requests, staffing needs, and develop an effective schedule, there will not be schedule changes after the registration process is complete in January. We will also not be accepting schedule change requests when we return to school in the fall. For this reason, course selection is extremely important.

The Academic Planner is open NOW to provide more time for students and families to review course selection! Please see the graphic that will walk you through the process. Registration will open on January 13th and lock on January 20th. Counselors will meet with students to review course selections and graduation requirements from January 21st to February 28th.

Featured club: Spanish Honor Society

Over winter break the Spanish Honor Society and upper level Spanish classes took a trip to the happiest place on Earth and Olvera Street in Los Angeles to commemorate Dia de los Reyes, which took place on Monday January 6th. At the parks the students had the opportunity to participate in events for the holiday as well as taste the foods associated with the holiday. At Olvera Street in downtown LA, we walked through the famed street lined with authentic Mexican goods and foods. We then visited the original house that birthed the City of Los Angeles. We finished our trip at the cultural museum showcasing the work and history of the hispanic people. All in all a wonderful trip and we cannot wait to go back!

Library iNformation

If your student is needing to do research for classes, the library has online, academic research sites available 24/7. Students can gain access to databases and online encyclopedias while on or off campus by opening up EBSCOhost and/or Gale from their RapidIdentity login page. This is what it looks like:
Big picture

If your student does not have this tab open, he/she should signout and sign back in. Rapid Identiy is the first tab that comes up after sign in, and it has quick links to various sites and apps students use regularly. They should always leave this tab open, not only for its convenience, but its ability to allow the network to identify them easier and faster, which in turn makes things run smoother on the student side of things.

When students click on EBSCO or Gale when they are on campus, they will gain access instantly. If they are off campus, they will be asked for a password. The password for both EBSCO and Gale is: coyotes. These two sites bring up safe, academic information for students.

Digital Citizenship:

On January 9 our teachers led students through digital citizenship lessons regarding relationships and communication. We want to help guide students in making good, safe decisions when it comes to communicating through their devices. Students considered what information to share and not share, how to be civil, common red flags, and more. To support your teens at home, here is a site with useful tools:

Below, we have also given you some tips and a home activity related to the content we discussed with the students on January 9 in case you would like to connect with your teens on these topics.
