This article in the San Jose Mercury News already made the rounds a bit recently, but it's too nice of a piece to not pass along. Dominick Guida, the owner of our own The Cruiser Shop and the organizer of the Shiny Side Up Bike Show, was featured prominently in the Mercury News recently. Indeed, his shop is a pretty big deal in a small corner of Downtown Campbell. I've met people who drove hours and bypassed other similar bike shops along the way just so they could get their their accessories and work done at the Cruiser Shop. And speaking of that Bike Show, it's already passed for this year and this year was its 10th anniversary!

Each day, our 330 students develop skills for life through faith-development, challenging academics, leadership opportunities, and service to others. St. Lucy students are guided to develop an appreciation and joy for learning each day!
We have one class per grade level, which makes for a close, intimate experience for teachers, students, and families as they “grow up” together. We are not too small, not too large, but just right. Our size allows students to be connected to each other across grade levels through the Buddy Program, Family Groups Program, Junior High Electives Program, and extracurricular clubs. This helps our school feel like a family.
In 2013, we were proud to celebrate 60 years of excellence in the historic Campbell community! Our families come from Campbell, Los Gatos, San Jose, and Willow Glen areas. We often say “It takes a village” when describing the school community. If you choose St. Lucy School, you will be welcomed whole-heartedly by the strong community of teachers, staff, fellow parents, and students. Working together to develop a sense of community and support for student growth is an important characteristic of our families from the first moment they first enter St. Lucy School. The bonds that are made, often last a life-time.
High School Readiness
Our graduates are well prepared for the challenges of high school, and 100% of our students who applied to a Catholic high school were accepted. St. Lucy Faculty prepares advanced students to succeed in testing out of entry-level high school courses such as Spanish 1, Algebra 1, and basic science.

- Presentation High School
- St. Francis High School
Every spring, we poll our freshman graduates and their parents about their transition, which provides insight into the strength of our program. Our administration and teachers work closely with students and parents to shepherd them through the high school admission and decision process. Our graduates are well prepared for the challenges of high school and beyond!

The City of Campbell's Summer Concert Series is in full swing and this week's performers are the crowd favorites, the Cocktail Monkeys, returning again by popular demand. It's easy to see why they're so popular. They put on quite a show and nail pop performances from a range of eras. Here's a short medley of some songs they covered in their appearance last year.
Shows are on Thursdays at 6pm throughout the summer at the Orchard City Green (in front of the Ainsley House in Downtown Campbell).
