Dear Campo Family,


Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Campo Families and community members. We are truly thankful for every single person in our Campo Family and everything you give to making Campo the place it is. Enjoy your time away with family and friends.


Next week when we return from break we will be jumping right into our Campo Wellness Week (which includes spirit days) and another Digital Citizenship lesson. It will be a busy week and we will post reminders on social media.


We would like to invite everyone to join us for the Football State Championship game on 12/7 at 11 am at ASU stadium. We will also be having a send off & breakfast that morning at 7:30. Ms. Regoli will be sending more information shortly.

"Someone always has your back- people are kind and that includes students, staff and support staff... a true family community"


"Campo Verde High School has the best support for special needs students. Excellent academic program and very supportive teachers, staff and students."


"As a foreign exchange host mom, I love the way Campo Verde welcomes foreign exchange students with open arms"


"We love the small school feel within the big city. The biomed program has been outstanding for our child. She has learned a great deal while growing in skill and confidence. The amazing teachers who lead this program have provided countless educational opportunities while creating a “family” away from home.

ACE program college credit opportunity for Sophomores!


We wanted to let you all know about a program that might be of interest to some of our sophomores called the ACE program!


Eligible sophomores can apply for this program and can earn college credit by taking classes at Chandler-Gilbert Community College (CGCC) while they are still in high school! Below is information regarding eligibility requirements for the program. Applications can be picked up in the CVHS college and career center or the CVHS counseling office. Applications are due directly to CGCC by Monday December 16, 2019.


From the ACE program website:


ACE (Achieving a College Education) is an early college two-year scholarship preparation program for high school students. The mission is to increase the success rate of the first generation, under-represented, financially disadvantaged college-bound students. ACE aids the students in their successful completion of high school and assists them with a smooth transition into higher education. Students can earn up to 24 college credits during the course of their junior and senior year of high school.


The ACE program is looking for current high school sophomores who have taken at least 6 high school credits at the time of the application submission and who meet TWO or more of the following criteria:


  • First generation to attend college

  • Single parent home

  • Underrepresented group

  • Economic hardship

  • Environmental factors (Works 10-30 hours, foster care, lives in temporary housing, teen parent)


For additional information please contact the ACE program office at myaceadvisor@cgc.edu. For further information please contact the CVHS counseling department at (480) 545-3100 ext. 2121.

Global Academy Hybrid Option


Hybrid Classes are a blend of online and in-person instruction. Students will attend 5 evening class sessions over the course of 9 weeks. In between those class meetings, students will work on their online course.


We believe that when students have scheduled times to meet and learn from their teacher in-person, they have a better chance of success!


Registration is now open for Algebra 1 A & B and Geometry A & B with sessions starting in January and March. We plan to add more class options beginning next fall. Check out our website for more information about this option and to sign up! Class sizes are capped at 20, and spots are assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis.

A Season to Remember

The Coyote Pride Marching Band was invited to perform at a Phoenix Sun's vs. Atlanta Hawks game on 11/14/19 at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in downtown Phoenix. Our percussion line and guard performed pre-game in the lobby to pump up the fans followed by the marching band performing the National Anthem just before the game began.This event was a fundraiser through our own ticket sales to family, friends, and our participation in the Sun's Charities 50/50 raffle. Special thanks to all who made this event a fun success and to the Coyote Pride Marching Band for representing CVHS so well throughout the community! Team experiences like these provide rich opportunities for our students to be a part of cultural diversity, form bonds with teammates, and be a part of something that exposes them to a lot of extra-curricular variety.


Our annual 'Families Take the Field' and Friends & 'Family Encore Performance' on campus 11/18/19 was a hit with over 200 people in attendance. This tradition brings our marching band season to a close as friends and family enjoy a non-competitive, personal performance on our home turf. Tears of joy and reminiscence swept through the crowd as the meaning of our show, Weathering the Storm, sank in..... reminding us all of how fragile and beautiful life is, how fleeting these precious moments have been this season for our students, for us. Shout out to the event volunteers and BPO for making these events so wonderful for all.


Up Next:

12/6/19 Coyote Pride Marching Band End of Season Dessert Banquet 7:00pm-8:30pm in cafeteria

12/9/19 Jazz & Chamber Concert 7:00pm in the auditorium

12/10/19 Concert, Symphonic, Wind Ensemble, & United Sound Concert 7:00pm in the auditorium

12/14/19 12 K's of Christmas Copper Jazz Performance 7:00am-10:00am Freestone Park, Gilbert

Digital Citizenship

Device Free Tips for Parents

High School Student Activity #DeviceFreeDinner


When we come back to school after our long weekend, Campo Verde will be having Wellness Week. To coincide with Wellness Week, teachers will be facilitating our students with digital citizenship discussions (on Thursday, December 5) based on finding balance when it comes to our screens. We will be talking about the aspects of our devices, social media, gaming, etc. that fulfill us, and also find out which aspects can weigh us down. We will look at strategies to help us discover the pros and cons of our devices and strategies to overcome the cons so that we can find balance in our lives.

If you would like to further the discussion with your children, here are some resources:

Just a Friendly Reminder as we enter cold and flu season……

Please make sure to check all medications in through the Health Office. Do not send any medications, including over the counter, with students. This also includes field trips. All medications must be in their original containers and brought in by an adult. Also make sure to check with the Health Office for students who carry their own Inhalers or Epi Pens if you have not already done so. Inhalers and Epi Pens should have the label from the pharmacy attached. This also includes field trips. Please help to remind your child to “cover your cough” and to wash their hands frequently throughout the day. Flu shots, it’s not too late! Many pharmacies and clinics offer them as well as doctor offices. Good nutrition, exercise and plenty of rest helps keep us all health! Please call for any questions or concerns and have a Happy and Healthy Holiday season!
