Speaking of the next season, it is time to form our site council. If you are interested in serving on the site council please use the following link to nominate yourself as a potential committee member.

  • Recruit parents for involvement in professional development opportunities, meetings, conferences, and other related activities designed to enhance the role of parents in supporting the education of their children and advancing their own educational needs.

important information from our health office


Just a few Friendly Health Office Reminders……..

*Please continue to complete the daily health assessment with your child EVERYDAY before

school. Please keep your child home if they are ill, have been around someone with COVID, or

if they have been tested for COVID until the results are returned.

*Visit for important COVID and general health information.

*If your child needs medication administered during the school day please contact the health

office. All medications must be checked into the Health Office. Students are not allowed to

carry medication with them at school unless the use of the following medication is required: epipens, inhalers, and diabetic emergency medications. However, these medications must be

checked in and accompanied by the appropriate forms to the Health Office prior to carrying

them at school. Forms can be found on the Gilbert Public Schools website under Health Services or in the Health Office.

*Medications may only be brought to school by a parent/guardian or another adult over the

age of 18. All medication will be in a properly labeled container from either the pharmacy for

prescription medication or in the original container for over the counter medication. Make sure to check the expiration date.

*Narcotic pain medication will NOT be administered at school.

*If a medication needs to be administered daily or is a prescription medication, a “Request for School Administration of Medication” form must be completed by both the parent/guardian and doctor before medication may be administered at school. This includes any over the counter medication that indicates it is not to be given to anyone under the age of 18, usually medication containing aspirin (example: Excedrin). This form is available on the Gilbert Public Schools website under Health Services or from the CVHS Health Office.

*If you received an immunization referral or your child got immunizations over the summer,

please bring the updated records to the Health Office.

*Please contact the Health Office for any questions.

Students who do not arrive to their first hour class on time will be redirected to the sweep room. A parent or guardian must physically enter the building to sign in the late student, otherwise the student will be directed to sweep. Parent phone calls will not excuse the sweep.

While in sweep students will not be able to work on assignments, socialize, or use any electronic devices. Procedures will be in place for students to make up class work and tests they may have missed when they were in Sweep. If a student is swept on a test day, the teacher will allow the student to make up the test. Students who have an assignment due will deliver it to the teacher that same day. All students will be informed of how the Sweep program will be integrated into their school day.

Students who demonstrate repeated tardy behavior will be subject to the progression of interventions and disciplinary action in an effort to encourage and teach proper time management skills. Consequences for sweep will go as follows:

  • 1st Tardy Offense: Students will be sent to sweep for the remainder of the class period and it will be documented.

  • 2nd Tardy Offense: Students will be sent to sweep for the remainder of the class period and receive a referral.

  • 3rd Tardy Offense: Students will be sent to sweep for the remainder of the class period and assigned Saturday School.

Our counseling department has our very own Virtual Calming Room.

It is our hope that students can add this platform to their toolbox as a way to regulate their emotions and to get them out of the “stuck” feeling they might find themselves in. There are different types of calming activities on this page for students to choose from. There is a way for students to monitor what activity works best for them. Different strategies work for different people. The important thing is that they are willing to find ways to lead a calmer, more focused and happier life. The virtual format should allow students to use this whether they are experiencing anxiety, depression, scattered thoughts, etc. in their different surroundings- not just in class. They can try using it at home, during a study break, at lunch, before a unit test, to help them fall asleep, before the big game, etc.- pretty much anywhere they might get anxious or nervous. They can access it on their phone as well as their Chromebook.

This is just one tool they can use- it is not to replace therapy. If what they are feeling is chronic or physically debilitating, please seek professional help from a medical or mental health professional. If anyone is feeling like hurting themself, they should get help immediately. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available 24 hours a day at 1-800-273-8255.

club fair

Thank you to all who participated in our annual club fair! It was a HUGE success!


Looking to get involved in planning community service events for our campus and participating as a volunteer at events in our community? Do you want to develop leadership skills?

Key Club is the club for you!

The club usually meets twice per month on Mondays after school in Ms. Diggs’ room (223).

The club not only seeks out opportunities for short-term community service in our area, but supports other clubs’ efforts as well.

This year, the club will be forming special interest committees which will develop and implement service projects for the campus


What great life skills!

Tips about Volunteering:

· Start earning service hours NOW!

· Find something that you love to do or something that touches your heart: DISCOVER YOUR PASSION

· Use online resources such as VolunterMatch to find opportunities that align with your passion.

· Accurately and diligently record hours. Campo Verde uses an online form (students only)! LINK



An Opportunity for Service

In the 2011-2012 school year, Campo Verde High School offered a new community service class; GC105. A handful of students registered for a class not knowing what it was. These students learned about opportunities for service in Gilbert and the East Valley. They established long-term working relationships with one location and volunteered at that site for a minimum of four hours per week. The majority of the students chose to volunteer at the nearby elementary schools of Quartz Hill and Ashland Ranch. They truly enjoyed their time in the classrooms assisting the teachers and the students.

This inaugural GC105 group logged in over 200 hours each for the year. Not only did they walk away from the class having garnished valuable skills and experience, they also earned valuable community service hours to include in college scholarship applications.

Campo Verde High School recognizes graduates who go above and beyond in their commitment to serving others. This requires that students accurately record service hours that fall within the district guidelines. Maintaining accurate records that include a contact name, phone number and signature at the time the service is completed is key. Students keep these records in their Advisory binder throughout their years at CVHS.

Graduates will wear an honor cord and their names will appear in the graduation graduation program for the following achievements in service:

  • White: 200-399 hours
  • Copper: 400-599 hours
  • White/Green: 600-799 hours
  • All: 800 +

Since that first year, GC105 students have logged over 60,000 hours of service to our community! With nearly 50 students enrolled in GC105 for the 2021-22 school year, we are anticipating many more accolades and scholarship opportunities for our service-minded students.


Performing Arts

Our marching band continues to grow!!!! We kicked off with Marching Band Camp the last week of July.... Mandatory 13-hour days learning the basics of marching band, how to march, setting drills and coordinates, learning show music, and gaining strong rapport with members of the band. Students had dedicated time to work with their sections, push themselves, and prep for the fun year ahead. Special thanks to the sponsors, parents, and boosters for providing delicious dinners each night! We couldn't do this without your steady support!

Band camp closed with a Family Preview Show on Saturday to provide a taste of our season ahead and showcase our students' hard work! We are so proud of you! ...AND.... our annual ABC (After Band Camp) DANCE! The band kids had a blast dancing in the band room and relaxing after an exhausting week!

The Coyote Pride will certainly turn some heads this Fall!!!!!

Library Updates


Mrs. Flaherty and Mrs. Jeffers would like to invite all the new freshmen and returning students into the library this school year. The library is open from 7:15-3:00 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday we are open from 7:15-2:30. Students will find thousands of books, hundreds of encyclopedias, school textbooks, credible databases, computer/printer access and Chromebook charging stations. All of our electronic resources can be found on students’ school google account under the GPS Student Web Apps tab.

New books: We always have a display of the books that just arrived to us. It’s right by the door so students can find them easily. And right above the new books we post pictures of the covers of the books we will be getting soon. Students are able to reserve them, or any book, if they would like.

Can you help? Please consider donating any new or used books to our school library. New releases and popular teen titles (such as John Green books) are most needed, however, any books brought in will be assessed for appropriate use. If they are not needed on campus, they will be used as trades towards purchasing appropriate titles. Simply leave the books with the receptionist or have your child bring them into the library. Thank you for supporting your library!

Chromebook Information:

We recommend reading the Student Device Handbook. Let your students know that they can come to the library at anytime they have questions or need help with their Chromebook.

Also, you may want to consider purchasing the Device Protection Plan for your child. The deadline to purchase is September 3rd.


digital citizenship


Digital Citizenship addresses 21st century skills such as: Media Balance & Well-Being, Privacy & Security, Digital Footprint & Identity, Relationships & Communication, Cyberbullying, Digital Drama & Hate Speech, News & Media Literacy. Here is a short video from commonsense on digital citizenship: What is Digital Citizenship?

The Gilbert Public School district uses Common Sense as our resource of information and Campo Verde teachers will be teaching all our students these digital skills from its resources. Common Sense is a trusted site grounded in research with its mission as, “helping kids thrive in a rapidly changing world”. This site also has a section for parents so that you can support your children, no matter what age, with these skills. We recommend that you take a look at it, but we will also use this newsletter as a way to give you resources on these topics.
