Cavalier Newsflash

Work HARD! Dream BIG! Believe in YOURSELF! Never GIVE UP!

Volume 2 - Issue 22 - January 27, 2020

Message from the Principal

Good evening Cavaliers,

As many of us struggle to cope with the tragic news of the untimely death of NBA great, Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and the rest of the passengers aboard the helicopter that crashed, it's important for us to remember some of the life lessons that we can learn from him. Passion, determination, hard work, dedication, setting goals and taking INITIATIVE to do the work it takes to reach those goals. These are just some examples of how Kobe Bryant lived his life.

As we think about our lives, the things that we are passionate about, and the hard work that must be done every single day so that we can reach our goals, let's remember the passion, work ethic, perseverance and initiative that made Kobe a legend on and off the court. Keep working hard, take the initiative to make every single day count, and reach for the stars!

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!
