Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,

This year we have focused on helping our students find their “place” on our campus. Our recent club fair was a huge success with students of all grade levels signing up to get involved with the over 50 clubs on our campus. The turnout for our initial club meetings has been overwhelming and we are pleased to see the level of interest our students are demonstrating in being involved on our campus. Please encourage your student to connect with our athletic, academic, and club opportunities. More information can be found on our website!

If you are interested in serving on the site council please use the following link to nominate yourself as a potential committee member. The site council is comprised of representatives from the Campo Verde community. The council meets with the Principal and other school staff on a monthly basis during the school year to discuss a variety of topics, share information and broaden understanding of school-related issues.

  • Monthly Site Council meetings.

    • Meeting dates: 9/15, 10/27, 12/1, 1/26, 2/23, & 4/27

    • Time: 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

    • Location: Room 113 Student Services (front office)

Progress reports for the halfway mark of the first quarter are available. Please log into Infinite Campus to review your student’s progress. Please know that this is a check-in for student progress and should be viewed as a means to assess how things are going thus far. Our teachers have tutoring opportunities available at different times and I encourage you to reach out to them with any questions or concerns you may have at this time.

We are all very excited to be back on campus and working together. Campo is a unique and special place! We have amazing students, staff, parents, and school community. It is a pleasure for all of us to participate in educating our students. Have a great Labor Day weekend!

important information from our health office


District Health Office Memo:

Dear Campo Verde Parents,

This school year we continue to work hard to keep our campuses safe and our students as healthy as possible. If one of our Nurses or Health Assistants calls to inform you that your student is ill or that they have been identified as needing to quarantine please understand that we are following the guidance of the Maricopa County Department of Health and the CDC, and that this is required by the Arizona Department of Health. We understand that having your child home from school for an extended period of time can cause undue stress and we appreciate your support in following these required guidelines. Thank you for your understanding and support of our nurses, health assistants, and front office staff during this challenging time. They are doing their very best for our families and it is important that we all work together.

Should you have questions or concerns please call the District Health Office at 480-545-2117.


Just a few Friendly Health Office Reminders……..

*Please continue to complete the daily health assessment with your child EVERYDAY before

school. Please keep your child home if they are ill, have been around someone with COVID, or

if they have been tested for COVID until the results are returned.

*Visit for important COVID and general health information.

*If your child needs medication administered during the school day please contact the health

office. All medications must be checked into the Health Office. Students are not allowed to

carry medication with them at school unless the use of the following medication is required: epipens, inhalers, and diabetic emergency medications. However, these medications must be

checked in and accompanied by the appropriate forms to the Health Office prior to carrying

them at school. Forms can be found on the Gilbert Public Schools website under Health Services or in the Health Office.

*Medications may only be brought to school by a parent/guardian or another adult over the

age of 18. All medication will be in a properly labeled container from either the pharmacy for

prescription medication or in the original container for over the counter medication. Make sure to check the expiration date.

*Narcotic pain medication will NOT be administered at school.

*If a medication needs to be administered daily or is a prescription medication, a “Request for School Administration of Medication” form must be completed by both the parent/guardian and doctor before medication may be administered at school. This includes any over the counter medication that indicates it is not to be given to anyone under the age of 18, usually medication containing aspirin (example: Excedrin). This form is available on the Gilbert Public Schools website under Health Services or from the CVHS Health Office.

*If you received an immunization referral or your child got immunizations over the summer,

please bring the updated records to the Health Office.

*Please contact the Health Office for any questions.

Students who do not arrive to their first hour class on time will be redirected to the sweep room. A parent or guardian must physically enter the building to sign in the late student, otherwise the student will be directed to sweep. Parent phone calls will not excuse the sweep.

While in sweep students will not be able to work on assignments, socialize, or use any electronic devices. Procedures will be in place for students to make up class work and tests they may have missed when they were in Sweep. If a student is swept on a test day, the teacher will allow the student to make up the test. Students who have an assignment due will deliver it to the teacher that same day. All students will be informed of how the Sweep program will be integrated into their school day.

Students who demonstrate repeated tardy behavior will be subject to the progression of interventions and disciplinary action in an effort to encourage and teach proper time management skills. Consequences for sweep will go as follows:

  • 1st Tardy Offense: Students will be sent to sweep for the remainder of the class period and it will be documented.

  • 2nd Tardy Offense: Students will be sent to sweep for the remainder of the class period and receive a referral.

  • 3rd Tardy Offense: Students will be sent to sweep for the remainder of the class period.

Key Club is the club for you!

The club usually meets twice per month on Mondays after school in Ms. Diggs’ room (223).

The club not only seeks out opportunities for short-term community service in our area, but supports other clubs’ efforts as well.

This year, the club will be forming special interest committees which will develop and implement service projects for the campus


What great life skills!

Tips about Volunteering:

· Start earning service hours NOW!

· Find something that you love to do or something that touches your heart: DISCOVER YOUR PASSION

· Use online resources such as VolunterMatch to find opportunities that align with your passion.

· Accurately and diligently record hours. Campo Verde uses an online form (students only)! LINK



An Opportunity for Service

In the 2011-2012 school year, Campo Verde High School offered a new community service class; GC105. A handful of students registered for a class not knowing what it was. These students learned about opportunities for service in Gilbert and the East Valley. They established long-term working relationships with one location and volunteered at that site for a minimum of four hours per week. The majority of the students chose to volunteer at the nearby elementary schools of Quartz Hill and Ashland Ranch. They truly enjoyed their time in the classrooms assisting the teachers and the students.

This inaugural GC105 group logged in over 200 hours each for the year. Not only did they walk away from the class having garnished valuable skills and experience, they also earned valuable community service hours to include in college scholarship applications.

Campo Verde High School recognizes graduates who go above and beyond in their commitment to serving others. This requires that students accurately record service hours that fall within the district guidelines. Maintaining accurate records that include a contact name, phone number and signature at the time the service is completed is key. Students keep these records in their Advisory binder throughout their years at CVHS.

Graduates will wear an honor cord and their names will appear in the graduation graduation program for the following achievements in service:

  • White: 200-399 hours
  • Copper: 400-599 hours
  • White/Green: 600-799 hours
  • All: 800 +

Since that first year, GC105 students have logged over 60,000 hours of service to our community! With nearly 50 students enrolled in GC105 for the 2021-22 school year, we are anticipating many more accolades and scholarship opportunities for our service-minded students.

Gilbert Public Schools Student Athletes and Families,

Congratulations on a successful start to the fall season for our Junior High and High School athletes. As we prepare to enter the competitive playing season in neighboring districts, I wanted to send you a reminder that our players/spectators are expected to adhere to the district-specific covid protocols when visiting other districts. Coaches and site athletic administrators will continue to update our athletes and their families regarding mitigation measures at schools on our athletic schedules.

It is also important to remember that we represent our GPS schools, teams, and community when we travel to out of district games. It is my hope that we will continue to conduct ourselves in a manner that is representative of our professionalism and excellence.

I look forward to our upcoming seasons and to seeing you at our games.

Thank you for supporting GPS District Athletics!

Sincerely, Steve McDowell

Director of Athletics Gilbert Public Schools

Library Updates


Library News and Information:

August was a great month in the library! We had over 750 circulations, numerous classes utilizing our resources and lots of activity during the lunch hours. It’s time to switch out our displays and with that will come more checkouts. We are so happy to provide for our avid readers and support our tentative readers.

Can you help? Please consider donating any new or used books to our school library. New releases and popular YA/teen titles (such as John Green books) are most needed, however, any books brought in will be assessed for appropriate use. If they are not needed on campus, they will be used as trades towards purchasing appropriate titles. Simply leave the books with the receptionist or have your child bring them into the library. Thank you for supporting your library!

Chromebook Information:

If a student is having problems with his/her Chromebook, the place to go is the library. We will put it in for repair and give the student a loaner Chromebook until the original is fixed.

Tip: Students should login every morning once on campus and keep the GPS Portal tab open all the time.


Congratulations to this year’s Book Club officers!
