The Principal's 200 Club is a student recognition program that allows teachers to nominate one student at a designated grade level, to be recognized for any reason. The student's name is announced during morning announcements, a postcard of recognition is mailed home, students receive a Principal's 200 Club sticker, a $10 credit towards a meal at Café Rio and an opportunity for a larger prize that will be awarded at the end of Semester 1 in January. Students will also be photographed with LC Principal, Mr. Klinger, and those pictures are displayed in the Jungle Hallway.

In CVUSD, parent/guardian engagement and participation is a top priority! Participation is encouraged through many organizations and activities. Several CVUSD Advisory Councils/Committees that support parent/guardian participation are listed below, with the OPTION for you to select any or all to receive communications from the school’s identified parent/guardian representative and/or from school site administration. This communication would provide information and updates to you related to the Advisory Council/Committee meetings.

Please select the Council(s)/Committee(s) that you would like to receive information and updates on, approximately monthly. If you have students at multiple school sites, please submit the form for each school. Additionally, if you opted-in last year, please plan to do so annually. Importantly, should you choose to opt-in to receiving these updates, the parent/guardian representative for the Advisory Council(s)/Committees(s) and/or the administration will not share your email address with others. You also have the ability to opt-out at any time in the event you no longer wish to receive the Advisory Council/Committee information.

If you would like to learn more about these Advisory Councils/Committees, or other ways to get involved at CVUSD, please go to: https://www.conejousd.org/domain/1365

To access the Advisory Council/Committee Opt-In Form, please use this LINK.

Any questions, please email Mr. Klinger at JKlinger@conejousd.org.
