Dear Stone Valley Community,
I would like to take this opportunity to express how excited I am to be the next principal of Stone Valley Middle School. Over the summer months, I will be spending a lot of time getting to know the school community as well as continuing to hear what makes Stone Valley such a unique and special place. One of the most important aspects of my work as principal is building solid relationships with staff, students and families. It is very important for me to be in the hallways, lunch areas, classrooms and school events getting to know the students. My past experiences have shown me that students greatly appreciate and do their best when they know that adults believe in them. Together, we will continue to develop Personal Responsibility, Respect, Integrity, Dependability and Effort (PRIDE) in all our students to help prepare them for high school, college and beyond.
I have spent most of my life in the East Bay. After attending UC Davis for my undergraduate degree, I earned my Masters of Education from UC Santa Barbara and my Administrative degree from Cal State East Bay. My wife, Karna, and I have three amazing children, Sam (12). Matt (10) and Nico (6). I love reading, coaching youth sports and capturing memories with family and friends.
Professionally, I started my educational career in the Pittsburg Unified School District as a 7th grade CORE and AVID teacher. After three years of middle school, I taught social studies at Northgate High School, while also serving as the leadership teacher, athletic director and varsity baseball coach. The past six years I served as a vice principal at both the middle and high school levels in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District. Currently, I am an Associate Principal at Miramonte High School in the Acalanes Union High School District.
I am thrilled to join such a thriving school community and am deeply committed to making a positive impact in the lives of our students. The first day of school can’t get here fast enough! Thank you for welcoming me into this great community!
I wish you an excellent end of the school year and a summer filled with laughter and adventure.
Jon Campopiano, Principal
Dear Stone Valley Parents and Students:
In an effort to build positive social relationships, reduce cyber-bullying and increase student safety and privacy, the Stone Valley staff has approved a new policy regarding cell phone use on campus beginning with the 2015-2016 school year.
Personal electronic devices including cellular phones must be turned off and put away during school hours (8:10-2:43). Cellular phones and/or personal electronic devices may be brought out only at the invitation of a classroom teacher for educational use.
By aligning our policy with all other SRVUSD middle schools, we hope that students and parents alike will find all of the positive aspects of being “powered down” during the school day. See the attached policy for specific details including how to contact your child and vice versa for emergencies during the school day.
Thank you for your support!!
