Work HARD! Dream BIG! Believe in YOURSELF! Never GIVE UP!
Volume 2 - Issue 8 - September 9, 2019
Message from the Principal
I hope you all had an awesome weekend! Just a reminder that this past Friday 9/6/19, progress report cards were sent home with your student. Please make sure you take a moment to review the report card with your student. This is a moment to celebrate good grades and set goals to raise grades that are not where you want them to be. If your student did not bring home a report card, please call our counseling center to arrange for a copy to be either picked up or sent home with your student.
Thank you to all of our English/ELD teachers for working hard this past Friday providing additional opportunities for struggling students to show mastery during Rise-Up Friday. This week our Science department will be working with students during Rise-Up Friday. The goal is to provide students with additional opportunities to show mastery of the core content standards.
Parents/Guardians, If your student gets an invitation to attend Rise-Up Friday, please encourage them to attend. Our next progress report is coming out in approximately six weeks, so please make sure that your student takes advantage of every opportunity offered.
Thank you for your hard work, dedication and remember;
At CVM we work HARD, we dream BIG, we believe in OURSELVES and we never, ever , GIVE UP!

Coffee with the Principal
A huge thank you to our Counselors, Assistant Principals, ASB Advisor and CIS Coordinator for helping our first Coffee with the Principal a success. Thank you to the over 150 parents/guardians who attended. I appreciate the questions asked by our parents during our open forum and I look forward to helping each of our students to be the best Cavalier possible.
Students who's parent/guardian attended, will receive a double lunch on Monday 9/9/19. Those students will be wearing a wrist band provided by the ASB and should report to advisory first. Teachers can release those students with wrist bands as soon as they take roll.
