Parenting with Love and Logic Workshop

Ms. Tucker will lead a workshop using the Parenting with Love and Logic Curriculum. The curriculum provides powerful tools to help our children learn to make good choices and experience happy lives while maintaining their love and respect. This week will be our final workshop for the year.

Battle of the Books

This year, 32 CVCS students in grades 4 through 8 participated in the Chicago Public School’s Battle of the Books. The Chicago Public Schools' Battle of the Books program encourages ongoing reading and teamwork throughout the course of a year. Each grade division (4th-6thgrade and 7th-8th grade) has a separate reading list of 21 books. Of those original 32 students, 7 were chosen to represent CVCS as the 4th-6th Grade Team, and 6 were chosen to represent CVCS as the 7th-8th Grade Team for the Qualifying Rounds that were held in April. They answered questions and competed against schools throughout the city. Our 7th-8th Grade team was the highest scoring charter school, and was selected to represent CVCS in the City Finals on May 7th. The competition field for the 2016 Battle of the Books included 181 teams from 118 schools. Out of that competition field, the CVCS 7thand 8th grade team was declared the overall 3rd

place team, marking the first time CVCS placed in the City Finals. Only 5 points separated CVCS from the 1st place team, Farnsworth Elementary School. The 7th-8th Grade Competition Team included: A. Williams, D. Marx, J. Platt, A. Halbleib, J. Shimandle, & M. Brooks.


The CVCS End of the Year Carnival will be held the morning of Monday, June 20th in the Merit Parking Lot. More details to come.
