Volume 2 - Issue 7 - September 3, 2019

Message from the Principal

Dear Cavaliers,

I hope you all had an opportunity to enjoy the three day weekend in observance of Labor Day!

Thank you to all of our Social Science teachers for working hard this past Friday providing additional opportunities for struggling students to show mastery during Rise-Up Friday. This week our English and ELD departments 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 first progress report is coming out September 6th, 2019, so please make sure that every opportunity offered to your student is taken advantage of.

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!
