Campus School Support Drive Under Way

The annual support drive is under way again this year and the Campus School Parent Network is hopeful it pays big dividends.

"As parents, we are always so proud to tell someone that our child goes to Campus School and that's because our faculty and staff are second to none and do everything they can to see our kids achieve.  There's no question I want to be able to financially support where and when I can and stand in the gap where funding isn't available for the things our kids and teachers need and should have,"  said 3rd grade parent Beth Winterburn.

The support drive is the only fundraiser for the school and runs during the month of September. No amount is too small or too big.  One of the hallmark's of Campus School's reputation has been 100% participation from every single family enrolled in the school.  To donate online, please click here.  If you prefer a check or cash, you may send in with your student via the envelope provided in their school folders.  If you would like to mail your check, the mailing address is: 535 Zach H. Curlin Street, Memphis, TN 38111 ATTN: CSPN

SCS To Host Workshops Aimed At Creating Additional High Quality Options

FROM SCS

During the month of October, SCS will be holding a series of workshops, all aimed to help identify solutions and develop plans for creating more high quality school options in our communities. While we continue to make significant strides toward our Destination 2025 goals, we know some of our schools are struggling to keep pace. In many cases, there are factors beyond their control, such as inequity in programming and services, declining population trends, poor facility conditions and an influx of new competitors.


Some schools will have to close, merge or be transformed in order to achieve the optimal conditions for high quality education. Our schools are the lifeblood of so many of our neighborhoods, so we need families and community members to help us identify the qualities they feel define high quality education. If a child's school is going to close or be transformed, a parent should be assured that the next school will provide him or her with more opportunities to learn and grow.  
 

All of the workshops listed below are open to the public, but we need to ensure that our most engaged parents are involved. The RSVP link (Zone 1 for Campus School) next to each meeting can be shared with your parents. We are asking for up to five confirmed participants. For any additional questions about the meetings, parents can contact our Family & Community Engagement Office at 416-7600.

Campus School Adopt-A-Book Program Launched For Year

Clerisa Smith, Campus School's Library and Media specialist has a love for books that never stops!

Her library website is full of helpful information for students and parents alike and one of her favorite things is the CSPN Adopt-A-Book program.  

"We've seen families over the years give books in honor of children's birthday's, graduations from Campus School and even graduations from high school and college when they knew their student's love affair with books started here with us at Campus School," said Leah Butler, CSPN co-vice president.  

Families have donated books in memory of grandparents who had a favorite book they read to their grandchildren, in honor of veteran's who have served our country, and even in honor of parents who have volunteered faithfully over the years while their children attended Campus School.  

If you would like to participate in this program, here is how you can do so today:
