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

Volume 2 - Issue 21 - January 20, 2020

Message from the Principal

Good evening Cavaliers,

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! I hope you all had an opportunity to enjoy the three day weekend and reflect on the beliefs of Dr. Marin Luther King Jr. It's because of individuals like him, that we enjoy the freedom that we have today. His commitment and pursuit of equality, through non-violent protests and demonstrations serve as a prime example of what an individual can do to bring a community, or even a nation together to fight for a cause.

As a school community, we can follow Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's. example and come together to work towards making sure that each student maximizes his/her potential. As we prepare each student for a successful transition to high school, and ultimately to be college and/or career ready, we must remember that it takes a team effort to get this done. Together we can make it happen!

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!
