If you would prefer a paper copy, please stop by the office to pick one up to complete and submit.

We take these surveys very seriously. Each year we compare results to the results of prior

years and look for trends in improvement and areas that need attention. We carefully read

every comment and study results with the Vail Governing Board.

We also use the results for both teacher and administrative evaluations.

Please help us help you by providing the quality responses needed to make the

results meaningful. The survey is open through 5:00 pm on Friday, February 28, 2020.

February Kitchen Volunteers...

Drama and Music Moment...

WOW! Well DONE, Civano Students! Your plays were a SUPER SUCCESS! We are so proud of all of you for your hard work. The feedback and comments are WONDERFUL too.

Now, onto our next event… Vail Pride Day (VPD). The date is Saturday, February 15, 2020 and we have been asked as a school to be in their “Vail Pride Day Finale Parade.” It is at 4pm and is a 30-minute walking parade loop past both halls. We will be singing, “Civano Kids Seize the Day” with a new verse added about our Civano students. It is a song Crew #2 sang in their play from the Newsies Production. Please help your students review the words. There will be more details to come.

You can help us plan for the parade by letting us know if your child will be participating. Please email Lydia Crain with your child's name to confirm their attendance! Thank You!

Civano Kids Seize the Day – Lyrics

Verse 1: “Watch out we’re on our way.

Watch out we’re on our way.

Civano kids are here to stay.

Civano kids are here to stay.

We’re in no hurry…

Learning’s a journey…

Watch how we seize the day!”

Verse 2: “Friends of the friendless, seize the day.

Raise up the torch and light the way.

Proud and defiant…

We’ll slay the giant…

Let us seize the day!”

Ending: “Neighbor to neighbor…

Big and small…

Civano kids will do it ALL!”
