Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,

What a great last couple of weeks! You will be able to see some of the excitement below as we celebrated students across campus last week. This is a great time to check in on your child’s academic progress. Projects, tests, reports, etc., are typically coming due at this time of year, and providing that extra nudge is sometimes necessary, at least at my house!

Last week we celebrated support staff and this week we are celebrating our teachers. I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with some amazing teachers and support staff and I try to let them know how important and special they are to our entire school community. If there are teachers and staff members that have positively impacted your child and even been supportive of you and your family, please reach out and thank them. An email or a note really does go a long way in showing your appreciation and support.

Lastly, graduation is right around the corner. For families new to high school or Campo Verde, please take some time over the next week to review our final schedule which can be found on our website. It is very different as we need to accommodate testing for a variety of students, especially seniors. Being aware of the schedule will help you navigate the end of the school year.

Have a great week!

Best regards,

Mr. Tyler Dumas

japanese club

In April, Japanese Club did Manga Line. What is Manga Line? It is a little like the game "Telephone" only with drawings. The first person writes a silly statement. The next person draws it. Then you fold away the statement so the next person cannot see it. The next person has to provide a new caption and on and on for several rounds. At the end we see where we started and where we end up. It is pretty funny! The second activity we did was create tattoos. We rebelled against tradition.Why? In Japanese culture, tattoos are considered taboo, and you might even be asked to cover them up if you go to hot springs or public pools. Many Japanese people still associate tattoos with YAKUZA, the Japanese Mafia. Last meeting: May 3rd 2:30 to 3:30 Learning about sushi!

Captions from left to right: Cody Crosland with his OG Yakuza look, Chase Cashion's signature design tattoo, Poppy Brooks drawing manga, Tayler Heron adds finishing touches to the manga line. Emmalyn Tilley adds to a separate manga line.

to request a parking permit for the 21-22 school year. Permit will not be prorated and will cost $60 until the end of the year. Filling out this form will not guarantee a parking spot will become available. There is no parking in the Campo Verde parking lots without a permit.

If you do not come to purchase your permit within one week of being emailed, I will remove you from the waitlist and email the next student.

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.

identification if it gets misplaced. I will be donating all items left in the lost and found during

Physical Education

We are kicking off our 12th annual "Soles 4 Souls" shoe collection drive starting this week and running through Friday 5/20. Our goal is to collect 3,000 pairs of shoes for those in need around the world. Please plan to join us by going through your closets and getting together any unwanted shoes you may have (we will have large collection boxes just outside of our PE office starting Tuesday 4/19. Donated shoes can be new or used, any size, any type (slippers, flip flops, cleats, high heals, etc.). Please either tie the laces together or rubber band the shoes together if they don't have laces (so they don't get separated).

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.

Coyote Strength camp

Hello CV Family,

This summer we will be offering our 13th annual "Coyote Strength Camp" at Campo Verde High School (runs Monday-Thursdays June 6th-June 30th - various sessions and times listed on attached flier). This camp continues to grow each year and has been a huge positive success throughout our community. We would like to invite all of our CV Students to join us as we continue to teach the fundamentals of strength, speed, and agility training. More importantly, we will teach the importance of values such as character, commitment, and courage. Our goal is for all of our campers to gain strength, explosiveness, speed, agility, and at the same time learn the importance of developing character and the vision to set goals and and the mind set to chase dreams and make them a reality.

Note: Please contact Coach Nick Cornell with any questions at...


Library Updates


Library Information:

April is Stress Awareness Month so we have a display in the library that showcases various strategies to manage stress. We have stacks of books with information on stress and anxiety. On top of that, we have books that are meant to promote different ways students can de-stress (from meditation, to aromatherapy, to daily readings). We hope our students find a piece of tranquility for themselves.

Chromebook Information:
Summer is coming! Encourage your student to take his/her Chromebook into the library to get fixed if they are having any problems with it. When there is no intentional damage, there is no cost to have these problems fixed. And it is better to get it fixed before summer so you have a properly working Chromebook over the break.
Digital Citizenship:
Teens are on YouTube all the time. Use the Parents’ Ultimate Guide to YouTube for any tips to talk with your teens about.
