Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,

As we head into Thanksgiving, I wanted to convey my appreciation and gratitude to our teachers, students, staff, and parents. At each turn this year we have had great events with outstanding participation and energy. For instance, the 1200 students that were present at the homecoming dance on the 6th! The spirit, energy, and excitement on everyone’s behalf has made the first semester memorable and enjoyable. I appreciate everyones’ support and willingness to do whatever it takes to make this year special for all of us!


End of the Semester: When we return from Thanksgiving Break, there will be three weeks remaining in the semester. It is a crucial time for students and parents/guardians to evaluate what needs to be done academically. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to your student’s teachers. Kicking off the communication as soon as possible is the best way to provide a window into working collaboratively to find solutions. Also, we realize this is also one of the most stressful times during the semester/school year. If your child is overwhelmed please know we have staff to help support them. Your child’s counselor can help match their needs with the resources we have available on campus. Please reach out to them for any assistance as they are more than happy to help.


CVHS Book Fair: The book fair will be held from 11/29 thru 12/3 in the library. Students are welcome to come to the fair during their lunch, after school, or during class periods if they have a pass from their teacher. The virtual fair will run through 12/5 for those interested in purchasing items online. We encourage your child to come in. More information can be found in this newsletter!


CVHS Site Council Meeting: On December 1st, we will have a presentation by our School Resource Officer (SRO), Officer Dietz on drug awareness and trends. I would encourage you to learn about the current drug trends. If you are interested in joining us, the meeting will be held in the library at 5 pm.


Thank you for your continued support and please let us know how we can support you and your student!


Every Person, Every Day!

freshmen family meetings

Attention freshmen families--the counseling team is continuing our Freshman Family Meetings. Please see the communication below that was sent out through email:


We would like to welcome our Freshmen Coyotes to the Campo Verde High School family!

School counselors work to address student’s academic, career, and social-emotional development ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. CVHS Counselors are assigned to students by an alphabet split of last names, please see your student’s assigned counselor below.


The transition from middle school to high school can be challenging (lots of questions, planning out classes, making new friends, where do I fit in?). High school years are full of growth, promise, excitement, frustration, disappointment, and hope. It is the time when students begin to discover what the future holds for them. Our hope is that we can help make that transition a little less stressful. We would like to meet with YOU and YOUR STUDENT for a 30 minute individual Freshman Family Meeting either in person or via webex. During this time we will discuss your student’s four-year plan, goal setting, and your counselor can answer any other questions you may have.


PLEASE SIGN UP for a meeting date and time below through Calendly with your assigned counselor. We look forward to meeting you and we are excited to work with you and your child throughout the next four years! Go Yotes!


PLEASE NOTE: These available time slots are for Freshmen Family Meetings Only.

NHS is excited to announce that so far this year, we have logged over 400 hours of community service! This month, the National Honor Society hosted a clean-up of the stands after the last two varsity home football games of the season. The volunteers were able to collect nearly 5 garbage bags full of trash from the stands! This event was a great way for the club to come together while cleaning up our campus! Thanks to everyone that helped out!

NHS also took part in the Winner Winner Turkey Dinner food drive hosted by Key Club during the month of October. As a club, we were able to sponsor over 7 families! We are so excited that we were able to donate a thanksgiving meal to so many families!

key club

The members of Key Club would like to thank our extended Campo Family for helping to make this year's Winner, Winner TURKEY Dinner event a record-breaking success! The Health and Hunger Directors from Key Club, Kasidy Dole and Adriana Gizzo were the event coordinators this year; taking the lead on marketing and organizing the campaign. With only three days before the due date, it appeared that we were going to be severely short of our goal of meeting the needs of all 80 families. We put out the call for help and our campus EXCEEDED the goal and gave generously; 93 boxes and $400 in additional gift card donations. Open Arms Care Center of Gilbert is grateful for our support of Gilbert families in need.

As ever, we feel so very blessed to be a part of this extraordinary campus family. Thank you for all you do to teach these children well and to mentor them as they grow throughout their time in high school.

On Wednesday, November 17, many of our CVHS Coyotes chose to give up their beds for the night and decided to sleep out. The Sleep Out is not about pretending to be homeless. Students will sleep out to show solidarity with those who are — and to let the world know about the ever-growing population of young people who face homelessness. There is more to Sleep Out than a night without a mattress. Sleep Out raises critical funds to help Covenant House provide 24/7 shelter, sanctuary, and support to youth overcoming homelessness.

Give up your bed for one night! When our students participate, they will find a safe and legal space to spend the night. It can be anywhere: a yard, garage, porch, terrace, or floor are all great options. The important piece is thinking about what comforts each will give up for the night. A comfy bed, of course, but they were also asked to consider going without a pillow or blanket, comfy pajamas, the safety of their homes, or the usual nighttime rituals. In the morning, they are encouraged to host a morning reflection to talk through the experience, how it differs from what youth facing homelessness experience, and ways each can stay engaged in the movement to end youth homelessness.

Please donate to the cause:

AFJROTC

The Church of Christ, Greenfield, asked if Campo Verde’s AFJROTC cadets could help them honor the veterans of their congregation at a Veterans Recognition Dinner. Nine members of the Campo Verde AFJROTC program trained in flag presentation and in the POW/MIA Memorial Table ceremony and went to the dinner and presented honors to the members present.

The POW/MIA table ceremony is a highly dignified memorial dedicated to all former POW’s and to all of our MIA’s from all wars that are still missing. This ceremony has a very personal meaning to all veterans and their families and seldom fails to bring tears to the eyes of the observers. This performance was no exception. The cadets of AZ-951 performed the ceremony flawlessly.

Following the ceremonies, the cadets were sought out by many for pictures, honored by a World War II veteran who made it a point to shake each cadets hand and to say, “Thank you!” They also were honored by a retired “Tomb Sentinel” (Guard of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington) with keychains with a tomb sentinal’s insignia. These cadets represented Campo Verde High School, the US Air Force JROTC program, and themselves with dignity, respect, and an extreme degree of professionalism!!

Every year the Coyote Pride participates in Winner Winner Turkey Dinner (thank you @cvhs_key.club ) and feeds families for Thanksgiving. All students chip in and this year we provided eight families with gift cards and nonperishable items for the upcoming holiday. Thank you Coyote Pride students and families for helping us serve others!
Big picture

The Coyote Pride defended our 2019 title and repeated as the 2021 AzMBA 3A Champions! It was such a special season as we returned to the field for competition. The CV boosters ran an awesome event on campus and the kids pushed through some untimely injuries to finish strong. Special thanks to the parents, volunteers, staff, and administration for playing key roles in our success!

Big picture
Our Families Take the Field tradition followed by an Encore Performance for family and friends on 11/15/21 was a lot of fun! We love seeing all of the smiles, future band members, and parents re-living those “glory days”. It was really cool to have alumni students/parents/boosters in attendance!


Even though the stadium lights went out before the encore performance concluded, the kids didn't miss a beat. It is evident why they are State Champs and they finished the show in the dark. It was incredible to watch! These band students are phenomenal!


Up next: Band Concert on 12/7/21 @ 7pm in the auditorium. Please join us! You are in for a holiday treat!

Library Updates

*********************************

Library Information:

We will be hosting a book fair in the library Monday, November 29 - Friday, December 3. It will be open during the lunch hours and after school for students and some teachers may elect to bring their classes in as well. The book fair accepts cash and card and proceeds come back to our library. There will be a TON of YA books and a select amount of books that are PreK-8 as well. All at discounted prices! It should be a lot of fun!


We also provide the book fair virtually with the same inventory. As a parent or global/online student, you can make a purchase online. Your purchases will be delivered to the library for your student to pick up December 13-16 so there are no shipping charges! Here is the link: bit.ly/3tbGvIb


Email Mrs. Flaherty with questions (sara.flaherty@gilbertschools.net) or call the library at 480-545-3100 ext. 2532.

Chromebook Information:

If a student is having problems with his/her Chromebook, the place to go for help is the library. We will put it in for repair and give the student a loaner Chromebook until the original is fixed.

TIP: When you plug your Chromebook in to charge at home, make sure you see the charging light turn on so you can be certain you actually have it charging. Chromebook charging cords are two parts. Make sure the two pieces are put together tightly. Also make sure that the wall plug it is plugged into has power...some are turned off with a light switch. This way you can be sure your Chromebook is being charged.

Digital Citizenship:

Here is another tip from CommonSense.org that will help you as a parent guide your teen when it comes to posting online and creating a digital footprint. Look to the stars: Scroll through the Twitter or Instagram feed of a famous celebrity, artist, or politician. Discuss the image they project based on their posts. Ask your kid what kind of image they would like to create -- and what kinds of things (funny stories, silly memes, heartfelt videos) add or detract from that.
