Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,

The fourth and final quarter of the 2021-2022 school year is underway! This is the busiest quarter of the entire year. Each quarter has athletics, activities, performing arts, CTE field trips, and events, but we add celebrations and recognitions associated with the end of the school year which makes for a festive and busy time of year. Prom, Baccalaureate, and of course, Graduation is how we finish off celebrating the school year. More information on these events can be found in the newsletter.

It is very important to check on the progress of your students in both their academic classes on campus and in the classes they might take at EVIT or online. Now is the time to seek assistance from our teachers and staff!

Please see the information below regarding the new tutoring program for our students called NetTutor. This platform allows students to get assistance in most subjects 24 hours a day!

Information on graduation is available in this newsletter as well. There is a timeline and resources available to help you navigate the process. Also, check out the GradNite 2022 flyer for more information on this special event.

We are looking forward to the final quarter and hope you are ready for the fast-paced march to May 26th!

Best regards,

Mr. Tyler Dumas

Registration for the 2022-2023 school has begun for all current CVHS students. Students watched a video regarding the registration process during Coyote Time. The video link and instructions are currently available on the Campo Registration Website.

Summer School

GPS online and in-person Summer School registration is now open. Students who already have a summer school recommendation from their counselor need to pay the fee in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal or at the CVHS Bookstore to finalize their registration. Students who do not have a recommendation need to see their counselor to get the process started. Click the image above to visit the Gilbert Public Schools website for summer school details.


ECAP Presentation

ECAP: Four Year Plan

All students have seen a presentation about ECAP (Education-Career Action Plan) in their Advisory class. We have attached a copy of the slide show here for your reference. Part of the presentation shows students how to enter their four-year plan for classes into the Infinite Campus Academic Planning feature. ALL students must have their plan entered by May of this school year. It is from this planner that all course requests will be filled. Again, please review these choices with your child to ensure that it is accurate and complete. These plans may be changed as students learn more about themselves and their plans for the future. The classes entered for sophomore year will be locked in February.

If you or your child have any questions, we encourage you to contact the assigned counselor. We are happy to help in this process.


AP exam schedule

AP exam registration has ended. Please see the attached AP exam schedule for May and plan accordingly as late exams are not offered.

senior declaration day

Senior Declaration Day Friday April 29th!

This is an open-house style event during both lunch hours where only Seniors can enter raffles to win college gear, gift cards, and big ticket items. Each Senior will also get a chance to declare where they will go after high school on the map of the US. This day is dedicated to all Campo Seniors, with their new major accomplishment of graduating high school, celebrating their after high school plans, whether they are attending a university, community college, trade school, military, working, mission...we are proud of you Seniors!

Our Senior Declaration Day committee works hard at reaching out to local businesses for donations as well, but sometimes we need a little bit more help. (Our local universities have graciously donated college swag for us to raffle off at our event). Our theme this year is "A whole new world". We would be so grateful and appreciative of any donations to our event!

Here is our wish list:

-individually packaged snacks for goodie bags

-boxes of Otter Pops

-old rugs (are you throwing a rug out to bulk pick up soon? Considering donating to us for this event!)

Please reach out to Erin Carpenter with any questions or if you are interested in donating to our event by April 6th-

Student leadership

Some of our on-campus student leaders were recently featured on the GPS newsletter! Way to be outstanding!!

  • “We have Link Leaders in our club that focus on helping freshmen, but mainly becoming the freshmen’s friend and providing a lot of helpful resources. When freshmen do come to Campo, they will already have friends and a secure place if they are needing somewhere to go,” said Ellison Tobler, a senior and Link Leader at Campo.
  • “We just want to see people come to Campo and grow as students. For freshmen to go from not knowing how to talk to teachers to becoming club leaders in one to two years,” said Matias Gonzalez, a junior and LIFT leader.

french club

French 1 and 2 students celebrated Mardi Gras on Tuesday, March 1st with King Cake, masks, and beads. Level 2 students have been studying the southern French region of Provence, site of the 3rd largest celebration of Mardi Gras in Nice. Their masks and cake reflected this region of the French-speaking world. Level 2 students focused on Louisiana and the cultures of the Cajuns and Creoles. New Orleans hosts the 2nd largest Mardi Gras celebration in the world. Their King Cakes contained babies and when found by one student in each class led to the crowning of our Mardi Gras royalty. Ashton Harker was King of period 6 and Ashlyn Hitchings was Queen of period 7. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Our school’s Best Buddies club will be having the Penny Wars fundraiser the week of Monday, April 4, through Friday, April 8! Penny Wars is a fun coin collection fundraiser that is also a class competition. It will be through everyone’s third hour class, if the teachers choose to participate, and the class that wins will also get a surprise celebration for that class hour on Wednesday, April 13th! Penny Wars is a coin collection, so each coin has a value, but only the silver coins count towards a class's points, whereas the pennies can be used on other classes to take away their points. The Penny Wars point system is:

$20 = + 2,000

$10 = + 1,000

$5 = + 500

$1 = + 100

25¢ = + 25

10¢ = + 10

5¢ = + 5

1¢ = -2

The Penny Wars participants will be marked with a “War Zone” poster outside of their room. All the funds raised will go towards our school’s Best Buddies club. Best Buddies is an international organization that pairs friendships between our student members with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities (IDDs), and our general education students to promote and represent inclusion! We would love to see the classroom participants and find out who will win!!

Physical Education

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.


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.


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.

REGISTRATION for 2022-23:

We encourage all students to stay active and healthy by registering for one of our many Physical Education course offerings (please see informational flyer for more information).

stress information

1. Stress affects EVERYONE!

  • Some may cope more effectively and recover more quickly.
  • Stress may be short term or occurrences that continue over time.
  • 3 Types of Stress: 1). ROUTINE STRESS (every day work, school. etc. 2). TRAUMATIC STRESS (accident, disaster, death, injury, etc) 3). SUDDEN CHANGE STRESS: Stress brought on by sudden negative change (job loss, divorce, illness)

2. Not all stress is bad!

  • Can motivate people to perform at their best or "rise to the occasion" (high achieving people feel stress).
  • Can be "life saving" in times of danger (brain more "wired in").

3. Long term stress can harm health

  • Chronic / long term stress can damage the immune system, digestion, sleep, and reproductive issues.
  • Headaches, sleeplessness, sadness, anger, irritable behavior.
  • If Long term stress occurs heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and mental disorders can develop.


1. Recognize the signs of stress.

2. GET HELP! Talk to a health care provider.

3. Regular EXERCISE!

4. Relaxing activities (yoga, tai chi, gentle exercises)

5. Set PRIORITIES (what must get done and what can wait).... You don't have to do everything at once!

6. Stay connected to FRIENDS and FAMILY that can provide support and help!


Library Updates


Library Information:

We have new displays up for the month of March. One of our displays has the catch phrase, “Books are the pot of gold at the end of our rainbow” and the display has books written by Irish authors. Our other display features nonfiction books and information about female Nobel Prize winners in order to help celebrate Women’s History Month.

Digital Citizenship:

Teens may be scrolling through their social media and see images or videos relating to the violence between Russia and Ukraine. The American Psychological Association has some suggestions on how to discuss war with children and teens. Obviously there are different suggestions for children and teens because of the age difference, but they point out that teens understand war and death more than younger children and are likely encountering information online. Parents can ask their teens what they have seen and how they feel about it to start a discussion. Parents can also point out how to help and encourage their teens to seek out examples of other people helping. And for more teen specific tips on teaching resilience in a time of war to teens, the APA has guidance as well.
