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

Volume 2 - Issue 17 - December 2, 2019

Message from the Principal

Welcome back! I hope you all had an opportunity to spend some quality time with your family and friends during our time away from school. We are on the home stretch with only 15 school days until Winter break and the end of Semester 1. Not only is December a short "academic" month, but it is also packed with so many things to do. With such a short time left in the semester, it is important for each of us to make the best out of every day.

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!

Thank you to Ms. Hollins for organizing our first College Fair. It was a huge success! Our students were excited to visit all the college booths and complete their scavenger hunt. A special thank you to Ms. Garza and Ms. Rivas who volunteered to run the CSU - San Marcos booth. Also, thank you to those of you who offered extra credit to the students who completed the scavenger hunt.
