Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,

The first three quarters of the year have come to an end and we have the sprint to May 26th well within our sights! I only have one thing I want to highlight for this newsletter which revolves around grades and transcripts. There always seems to be a finality to the first and third quarter grades for students and parents. In reality, those grades are much like a midterm or a midpoint check-in. The only grade that is posted on a transcript is the semester grade which represents the grade they earned between both quarters and any assessment that may be given towards the end of the semester. 1st and 3rd quarter grades are important and do have ramifications for eligibility for athletics and activities, but they are not final grades. Students have the entire fourth quarter to improve their semester grades. As you examine the progress of your child at this point in the semester, please celebrate with them or engage with your child and our staff to assist you and your child in focusing on earning their credits and the grades they desire.

As a reminder, we have a number of intervention options, including tutoring during the school day, for students to catch up and be prepared to improve grades and ensure that they are earning credit. If you have questions or need a connection to find out more about our resources, please contact Erica Duckett our academic coach, or our student’s counselor.

We are looking forward to the fourth quarter and celebrating with the Class of 2022! We hope you have a wonderful spring break!

Best regards,

Mr. Tyler Dumas

coyote time

This past week, to kick off our Spring Break, our campus hosted an outdoor day to promote overall wellness. Group A went outdoors for some fresh air, while Group B remained indoors to complete a This or That class building activity. As we return from break, Group B will go outdoors and Group A will participate in the get to know you activity with their class.

Campo Verde's Wellness Team hosts outdoor wellness days with lawn games and activities. We also host students in the student services classroom. This is a safe space for students to receive tutoring, mentorship, and unwind if needed. All items donated will be used for our campus and student social, emotional, physical, and academic wellness.

Please take a minute to take a look at our list.

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 Registration

Students enrolled in second semester AP Government and AP Microeconomics need to register and pay for their exams by February 25th. This is the final deadline for ALL AP exams. If you forgot to register by the priority deadline of November 1st for any first semester or year long AP Exams, you can STILL REGISTER with a $40 late fee. Please follow the steps below.

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!

Students are required to display a parking permit when parking on campus. Security will be

stickering and booting vehicles without permits. Parents will be required to come to campus

if a student's car is booted. Make sure you have your parking permit clearly visible,

preferably on your rear view mirror, every single day, no matter what car you are driving. If

you have to drive a car that you have not registered with the bookstore, come in, call or

email me ASAP with make, model and license plate.

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).

  • Some may cope more effectively and recover more quickly.
  • Stress may be short term or occurrences that continue over time.

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)
