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

Volume 2 - Issue 19 - December 16, 2019

Message from the Principal

Good evening Cavaliers,

We've made it to the last week of the semester. Although this week we have four minimum days, it's a very important week, finals week! We will be taking two finals per day Monday through Wednesday. Please make sure you see our Finals Week schedule in the AP's Corner section of this newsletter. Also, please note that we do have zero period all week! Final semester grades will be turned in by faculty on Wednesday afternoon and report cards will be sent home on Friday.

I would like to thank all of our students, faculty, staff and parents/guardians for all the hard work each one of them put in this semester. It does take a village to raise a child, and together we can do it. This is my last newsletter of 2019 so I would like to with each one of you a happy holiday season and a prosperous new year!

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!
