New Look for CSI Newsfeed

There is a new look for the News page on the Campbell School of Innovation website, and some new communication features too.

CSI Inside is the Principal's blog where she and selected staff will share stories, images and reflections about "doing school differently" at Campbell School of Innovation.

CSI Connect is where readers will find featured news and photos about what is happening at school, in classrooms and in the CSI community.

CSI Notices (lower on the web page) is where readers will see briefs and reminders that support school operations and parent communication.

Other standard and convenient information is also located on the News page: bell schedule, lunch menus, upcoming events, contact information, and a link to subscribe to our weekly e-news.

We hope you'll add the CSI News page to your list of favorite web links.

Nearly 400 parents, students and staff gathered on May 8th for a Campbell School of Innovation event where they could get acquainted, learn more about the new school, and sign up for committees and volunteer activities that interest them.

Principal Norma Jeanne Ready and the CSI staff greeted families and provided an update on the school's schedule, construction, and planning for enriching learning experiences using the design thinking process.

“We’re excited about the opportunities that CSI and design thinking can bring to all students in our district,” said District Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “CSI offers an opportunity to be innovative in our instructional delivery to better meet the needs of today’s students and prepare them for the skills and habits required for their success in this yet to be defined  future.”

More information will be provided to parents in the months leading to the school's opening on August 22nd.
