From Andre LaChance: Congratulations to this year's co-presidents of the Academic Leadership Council (AcLC), CVU's version of the National Honor Society: Mircea Hamilton, Joe Jacobs, Sam Kunin, Charlie Lehman, Thomas Roberts and Carly Trapeni. Each leads a group of AcLC members who have made a commitment with a faculty/mentor to complete 20 academic service hours anywhere in the CVSD District. The AcLC lifts up the academic environment and the knowledge/skills/behaviors of their peers. All seniors with a 3.8 GPA are eligible to join the AcLC. Currently, 52 seniors have made the commitment to help, and we are still open to eligible seniors. Students should contact advisor Andre LaChance at email@example.com
Kaiya Kilbon and I were discussing the perfect therapy pet to house at CVU and we both agreed that a sloth would be perfect. Aside from the fact it would be illegal, we imagined a sloth would be fairly low maintenance and fun to watch as it clung to the rafters in the Cafe. Kaiya took it a step further by actually adopting a sloth from The Sloth Conservation Foundation. So...now CVU has a sloth (well, a symbolic sloth) named Mango.
The Varsity Girls Soccer Team spent last Wednesday afternoon unloading 500 pumpkins to help out at the Isham Family Farm.
Calculus students continue to learn about limits. This time, they’re practicing reading and speaking limit notation and identifying whether the limit exists from graphs. (Think “Mean Girls”winning Mathlete championship answer from Lindsay Lohan.) Oh, and check out the smiles; this was a very engaging activity!
RoboHawks Get to Work and Support the Community This week the RoboHawks and JV Redhawk Robotics teams met to dig deep into brainstorming, designing and prototyping this year's bot. In addition, hosted a workshop to introduce the CVSD middle school students to robotics.The workshop for students and parents in the CVSD district focused on the FIRST Lego League robotics competition. The event marks the beginning of the program after months of behind-the-scenes work and makes their goal a reality of helping each district middle school start an FLL robotics team. The RoboHawks aim to strengthen and encourage participation in STEAM programs within the community by promoting and supporting opportunities for middle school students. The workshop was tremendously successful, with excellent attendance and representation from every CVU sending school! The RoboHawks worked with students to begin their coding adventure in FLL robotics and gave parents a great overview of why the program is valuable and fun! This year’s challenge is power themed and includes tons of fun challenges to tackle. We can't wait to see FIRST Core Values grow in each district school and see where the program goes! RoboHawks will be hosting another FLL workshop in the near future. For more information or if you would like to learn more about our team, check out our Website, or feel free to contact us at cvu_robohawks_2022.cvsdvt.org!

Senior Seminar: Tuesday during C3, CVU’s Senior Seminar group met for the first time. Senior Seminar answers all the questions that kids *wish* they could learn in high school--basically a How To Be An Adult course. They’ll be talking about taxes, credit scores, apartment hunting, retirement planning, buying a house, cleaning up your internet profile and all that things that adults just have to figure out at some point.
