ConVal High School Happenings - November 13, 2020

Message from Principal McKillop

Good Afternoon, Cougar Nation!

I hope this letter finds you healthy and well. It is hard to believe that today marks the end of quarter one. Please see more information about this in the school counseling information section below.

I was fortunate to listen in on a Zoom call earlier this week with some of our students who are participating in a virtual internship opportunity that our extended learning coordinator Kristin Knarr helped create. Please see the full article that appeared in the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript by clicking here.

Today is World Kindness Day. I am grateful for the kindness that I observe in our school community as we work together through this unique year.

With Gratitude,


Upcoming Important Dates

  • November 25 - 27, 2020 - Thanksgiving Break
