Our hearts go out to the families and staff involved in yesterday’s tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Florida. We hope and pray that nothing like that ever happens in our schools or community.  However, if it does, we are prepared.

We take safety very seriously, and practice our emergency response plans frequently. Our training in the Incident Command System (ICS) is one way in which do our best to protect students and ourselves. Our trainings include working directly with professional fire and police officials who use ICS for emergency response and communications.

We also partner with community health services to help our students and families who need support with social-emotional and other non-instructional issues.

A tragedy such as this reminds us to hug our loved ones a little tighter and appreciate each day a little more. Be well.

— District Superintendent Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D.

Save March 19th for a free screening of ANGST, a documentary film with tools to talk about it and lessen our angst.

Campbell Union School District and its partners will present a special screening of “Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety.”  The event will feature a viewing of the 56-minute film, followed by an informative panel discussion led by mental health experts.

“We are seeing students and their families challenged by, and sometimes struggling with, anxiety. As educators, we want to reduce or remove barriers to our students excelling in school and in life,” said Campbell Union School District Superintendent Shelly Viramontez.​”​ Hosting this film offers a forum for talking about it, gaining positive strategies for dealing with it, and normalizing something that all of us experience at some time in our lives. ”​

The screening will be held Monday, March 19, 2018, at 6:00 p.m., in the Campbell Heritage Theater.  Appropriate for ages 10 and up.  Free tickets available at eventbrite.com!

The preschool-8th grade Campbell Union School District is hosting the screening in partnership with the county’s School Linked Services program, the Campbell Union High School District, and the independent online streaming platform IndieFlix and its IndieFlix Foundation.

The Parent Teachers Association Executive Board at Rolling Hills Middle School is a vital part of our community.  Together with the friends and families of our students they raise and manage approximately $115,000 each year.  This money directly supports our students, teachers and funds family activities.
The money raised by the PTA funds some of the students most exciting events, the PTA financial support makes these possible.  Events which are funding by the PTA include:
Entire School:  8th grade:  7th grade: 6th grade Teachers and Staff:
Accelerate Reader Books, Career Day, Renaissance Day, Science Camp, Appreciation Lunch, PBIS Rallies, Exhibition Day,  $200 Classroom fund for member teachers,
Read One Million, 8th GradePromotion,  radio and communications equipment,
Scholastic Magazines, Math, Spanish, and other clubs, Extended library hours, Brain Pop Subscription, Student Planners, Student Recognition Awards, the new Raspberry Pi Lab,
Project Cornerstone, movie license for all movies shown for classroom education and family movie nights, Books and Bratwursts Bookfair and dinner night.
The events, subscriptions, and equipment listed above are so important to our school culture and atmosphere. The children and the teachers depend upon the PTA to help make these events happen. RHMS and the PTA split many of these costs working in partnership.  
Please consider joining the PTA as an executive board member next year.  The PTA Board over the last two years has worked hard to make these positions easier and less time-consuming.  They now use Google for Education as their platform for all digital communication and documents.  This allows the history of the board to be passed easily to the next board.   All forms are currently up to date per PTA Guidelines.  The biggest change to make one of the most important jobs easier is that the PTA now uses PTA EZ, a specialized PTA Accounting software.  NO Prior accounting knowledge is needed.  This is a simple tool which creates all needed financial reports and a tax form line item report. 
We hope to hear from you!  Please contact Gini Bellawalla at  nomcomm [at] ptarhms.org  with any questions.
