Message from the Superintendent

Dear Rolling Hills Middle School Families,

Educating students to their highest potential is job one for all of us in Campbell Union School District. As we work toward successfully completing this school year, we also are looking ahead at how to provide the best support to students in the next school year.

When school begins on August 22nd, Rolling Hills will have a new administrative team. Mr. Gilbert Rodriguez will be joining RHMS as Assistant Principal and will be working with Mr. Cribari, who will continue as the RHMS Principal. Your Assistant Principal Kristin Prindle has accepted the position of Principal at Castlemont School, and Dean of Students Steven Fisher has accepted a position at another school district.

Mr. Rodriguez has more than 10 years of experience as an administrator and educator, including middle school, high school and university levels. He and Mr. Cribari will make a strong and effective team as they are committed to continuing the great programs and experiences for Rolling Hills students, staff and families.

We believe these changes will support the needs of students at Rolling Hills Middle School and prepare our future graduates for the challenges of their yet-to-be-defined futures.

Sincerely,

Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D., Superintendent

A day of positive achievements sponsored by Kiwanis

students competingForest Hill Elementary and Rolling Hills Middle school students were among the more than 900 children with special needs who participated in this year’s Kiwanis Special Games event at West Valley College. There were 18 events laid out within the college stadium, covering a wide range of skill levels.  Arriving groups were formally and officially greeted as they participated in an opening procession. They proceeded to their events, where they were coached and then recognized with an awards ceremony after each contest.

With the help of volunteers, the student athletes from our schools schools experienced a day of positive achievements.

The Kiwanis Special Games were created to address the physical and emotional needs of the substantial number of extremely challenged children in the schools of our region. The Games were first organized in 1979 by two Adaptive PE teachers and Los Altos Kiwanian Walter Chronert. Over the years, the Games flourished from modest beginnings to the regional event they are today.

An Internet Safety Message from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. Ed.D.

Dear Parents,

We want to make you aware of what seems to be the latest viral challenge targeting children. It is called the Momo Challenge, and it centers around a disturbing character suggesting dangerous tasks for kids to perform. From what we have learned, these and other suggestions can also be found spliced into some YouTube Kids videos, including Fortnite and Peppa the Pig. This challenge also occurs through an app called WhatsApp, which could function on both phones and tablets.

We recommend that you talk to your child about these kinds of challenges, in a way that you feel is appropriate for their understanding. Given the connection and concern with messages within YouTube Kids videos, we also recommend that you monitor what your child is watching and screen the videos, even if they appear to be safe, to ensure their viewing does not include harmful messages.

The links below offer some information about the Internet hoax and resources to help you set rules at home:

o   Media Guidelines for All Kids of All Ages
o   Safe Search Kids

In our schools, we are aware of this trending issue and continue working to ensure students follow safe Internet use. Throughout the school year, our teachers reinforce the expectations for safe use and responsible practices described in our Student Digital Safety contracts.  They also use the Common Sense Media resources and our lesson bank to teach grade-specific digital citizenship lessons.

If you have any further questions, please contact your child’s school.
