Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,

Each year at this time, everyone is looking forward. Whether they are looking forward to their graduation, summer break, a change of pace, or possibly all of the previously mentioned, we want to wish everyone well and hope you have a safe end of the school year and summer break! I am going back to highlighting three things in order to simplify my message. Here are three dots from Mr. Dumas:


  • The intersection at Germann Road and Lindsay Road will be closed from 5/20 to 5/23! I do realize how inconvenient the timing is for this closure and we will work with students on that Friday and Monday. We are hopeful that the work will be completed on time or even early!

  • Graduation is nearly here! We will celebrate the Class of 2022 on Thursday, May 26th. There will not be limitations on how many can attend graduation, but we will have that option available for those interested in a live stream. A great deal of information is available in this newsletter to assist families with navigating this exciting event.

  • Please review the testing schedule as they are very different in order to meet the needs of all testers. Here is a link to our website: CVHS Testing Schedule 2022


Have a great final two weeks, and our next newsletter will wrap up the 2021-2022 school year!


Best regards,

Mr. Tyler Dumas

Principal

japanese club

Last Japanese Club of the year! We made sushi. Many people believe sushi is raw fish with rice but actually sushi does not have to have raw fish. It does have to have vinegared rice. The sushi we made is called Inarizushi and it is named after the Shinto deity O-Inari. It’s made with deep fried tofu pouches stuffed with vinegared rice and you eat it with spicy red ginger. It’s a nice sweet and spicy combination.
Captions: inarizushi, Tylan Merriam and Chase Cashion stuffing the tofu pouch, Emma "Poppy" Brooks and Victoria Dedeaux prepping for stuffing, Kennedy Fischer and Corea Kim get ready to eat, Emmalyn Tilley gives the Inarizushi 2 thumbs for flavor!

Physical Education

We are kicking off our 12th annual "Soles 4 Souls" shoe collection drive starting this week and running through Friday 5/20. Our goal is to collect 3,000 pairs of shoes for those in need around the world. Please plan to join us by going through your closets and getting together any unwanted shoes you may have. We will have large collection boxes just outside of our PE office starting Tuesday 4/19. Donated shoes can be new or used, any size, any type (slippers, flip flops, cleats, high heels, etc.). Please either tie the laces together or rubber band the shoes together if they don't have laces (so they don't get separated).

*****

Our PE Department is excited to work with all of our students in PHYSICAL EDUCATION, SPORTS TRAINING, DANCE, YOGA, and UNIFIED PHYSICAL EDUCATION classes.

PE, Dance, Yoga UNIFORMS:

Uniforms can be purchased in person in our CVHS Bookstore. All students need to have the proper uniform and a combination lock. Please contact Coach Cornell or your PE teacher if you have any questions.

AFTER SCHOOL WEIGHTS:

We are excited to offer another year of "AFTER SCHOOL WEIGHTS" we will be opening the weight room after school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 2:20-3:00pm. Please see Coach Cornell or Coach Bishop for more information.

LUNCHTIME INTRAMURALS:

We will be offering lunchtime intramurals during both lunches for any student interested in being active. Intramurals will be held in either the mini or main gymnasium and occasionally outside (when the weather cools down). Please see Coach Cornell for more information.

SECURING BELONGINGS IN PE LOCKERS: Just a reminder that due to COVID we are not permitting our Physical Education student's to store their PE clothes in locker's overnight. We are asking our students to bring their PE clothes each day, change out in the locker room and securely LOCK ALL BELONGINGS in a large locker (provided) and then at the end of class period, take their sweaty PE uniform home and wash it for the next day. We believe this will cut down on the amount of bacteria in the locker rooms. Questions, please contact your student's teacher.

Coyote Strength camp

Hello CV Family,

This summer we will be offering our 13th annual "Coyote Strength Camp" at Campo Verde High School (runs Monday-Thursdays June 6th-June 30th - various sessions and times listed on attached flier). This camp continues to grow each year and has been a huge positive success throughout our community. We would like to invite all of our CV Students to join us as we continue to teach the fundamentals of strength, speed, and agility training. More importantly, we will teach the importance of values such as character, commitment, and courage. Our goal is for all of our campers to gain strength, explosiveness, speed, agility, and at the same time learn the importance of developing character and the vision to set goals and and the mind set to chase dreams and make them a reality.

Note: Please contact Coach Nick Cornell with any questions at... nick.cornell@gilbertschools.net

Library Updates

*********************************

Library Information:

  • We were so lucky to have author Tiffany Rosenhan speak to our students on April 28. She gave practical and strategic tips on writing, which was a very valuable experience for our students. We also had fun discussing her book, Girl from Nowhere, as well. 5 students won a raffle to receive a signed book. The whole experience was worthwhile!
  • We hope you all had a good year of reading! But we have come to the end and all library books are due on Friday, May 13. Please return them ASAP and check for any late fines. Seniors must return books and pay fines before graduation.
  • We are SO excited to announce Campo’s very own and first ever Summer Reading Program! Go to the school and library website to get all the details. Students are allowed to pick whatever books they would like to read. They will then fill out a form about it (found on the website). Students are encouraged to repeat this process as much as they like! The reader with the most submissions will earn a ticket to Homecoming! Other prizes include bookmarks (1 book read), Campo t-shirt (5 books read), and a new book (10 books read). The Summer Reading Program begins on May 27 and ends on July 22. Students will pick up their prizes at the beginning of the next school year in the library.

Chromebook Information:
Freshmen, sophomores and juniors will keep their Chromebooks over the summer. Seniors will return their Chromebooks and chargers after their last final or no later than May 24. If there is a senior that needs to take a summer school class, that senior can come to the library to make that arrangement and return the Chromebook when they complete their summer course.
Digital Citizenship:
On May 11 during Coyote Time, students had a lesson within the topic of Digital Citizenship. We showed students the Take a Stand Technique as a way to handle digital drama. The aim of the activity was not to lead students to a "right" answer. Rather, the goal is to slow our reactions down, take time to listen to different perspectives, and be reflective about our stance on a dilemma. Here is the technique students were shown:

  • TAKE A STAND
What do you think? Explain your perspective.
  • STAND BACK
Where do your classmates stand? Listen to their perspectives.
  • LOOK AGAIN
Look again at your original response. What had you not considered that other people brought up? (Maybe you changed your mind, maybe you didn't -- that's OK! Either way, you heard other views. How has your thinking shifted after hearing your classmates' perspectives, even if you haven't changed your mind?)
  • LOOK BEYOND
Look beyond this specific case. How does this dilemma remind you of other situations we've explored in class or that you've seen, heard about, or experienced?
