Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,

It is hard to believe that we are two weeks away from the end of the first quarter. Our staff has been reviewing grades and student progress and we are seeing a dramatic increase in student success. The end of the quarter can be a stressful time for students. Our teachers and staff are here to support your student. I would strongly recommend logging into Infinite Campus and checking your student’s grades and progress. If you have any questions our teachers are here to help, please reach out to them.

I have four items to highlight, some of which are in the newsletter with more detailed information.

  • Attention Senior Students and Families: Please join us on Thursday, October 14th, from 6-8 pm in the cafeteria for Senior Night. Jostens will be present to assist with graduation and other information, as well as college reps and the opportunity to complete your FAFSA application! More information is available in the newsletter.

  • REMINDER: Students return to campus on Tuesday, October 12th!

  • Last week was Suicide Prevention Week and I wanted to take a moment to thank our staff and students. The presentation and PSA as well as the acts of support for our school community were overwhelmingly positive and supportive. This is a difficult topic and the collaborative efforts of our students and Wellness Team helped to destigmatize the topic and create a positive message of support and community.

We are looking forward to the second quarter and hope you have a wonderful fall break!

Best regards,

Mr. Tyler Dumas

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 we have logged over 100 hours of community service! During the month of September NHS hosted a clothing drive for the House of Refuge, a local shelter for those experiencing hard times. In the month of September we received nearly 6 trash bags full of clothing as well many other essential items. Thank you for all of the support, and donations we received during this drive.

One of the requirements for NHS is that each member must attend two social events per semester. On Friday, September 24th, NHS hosted our first social of the school year! We appreciate all 30 members who attended the social. It was a huge success, everyone listened to music as we all bonded over our love for sweets!

key club

Key Club students set off for the 9/11 Healing Fields in the wee hours of the morning of September 13. They were on their way to "Stand Down" the memorial site at the Tempe Beach Park. These students were not yet born when the attacks on our country took place, but all were committed and invested in volunteering. We took a moment before the event started to climb the stairs to the overlook and to take in the fact that every flag represented a life lost on that day. The sun was just coming up over the horizon and cast its rays upon the volunteers as they assembled to take direction from the organizers. They worked side by side for four hours with ROTC units from Arizona State University, adult members of Kiwanis organizations and veterans. They were the only high school group there. Together, they carefully removed the bows, candles and name cards then respectfully removed the 2,977 American flags that had been a part of the memorial and packed them away until next year. They loaded up the bus and made their way back to campus before the end of second period. We are proud of their efforts and their commitment to serve. #NeverForget


performing arts


Super proud of the Coyote Pride Marching Band! In our first competition in a few years, the band finished in FIRST PLACE and swept ALL captions Saturday night at the AzMBA Glendale High School competition. The kids, parents, staff, and volunteers are awesome and we are excited to keep pushing forward this season.

world language

What do the Netherlands, Poland, Italy, and Spain have in common? CVHS! This year, students from each of these countries (and 2 from Italy!) are improving their English and getting to know Americans and American culture by living with host families and attending classes at CVHS. Jonathan Alvares is from the Netherlands, Giorgia Colombino and Sofia Verri are here from Italy, Ines Cruz Perez is from Spain, and Nadia Machlarz is from Poland.

On Friday, October 1st, each of these students spoke to the CVHS students studying World Languages about their experiences in this foreign country, Gilbert, AZ, U.S.A. They shared things they found to be the same and things that are very different. They explained some of the aspects of their home schools and daily lives. They are looking forward to their first Homecoming and Halloween - American style! CVHS students were also able to pick up a list of resources if they want to explore the possibility of being an exchange student some day. While GPS does not recommend any one particular agency, the resource list contains names of companies who have successfully hosted students here and abroad for many years. Anyone wanting more information may contact or any world language teacher.

Library Updates

Library Information:

Congratulations to our Top Readers for Quarter 1! The circulation system keeps track of the amount of checkouts per student. These circulation statistics are cumulative over all four years a student is on campus. These students will be getting a small treat from the library to announce their top 10 status. There are lots of books being read!

We have a display of fiction books, nonfiction books and poetry created by Hispanic or Latino authors up in the library in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15). Some of the authors include Gary Soto, Elizabeth Acevedo, Sandra Cisneros, and Matt De La Pena. We like to give our Campo students the opportunity to find themselves in writing or explore other cultures through stories.

Big picture

Chromebook Information:

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

Tip: Use the Google Apps “Waffle” (it can be found in the upper right hand corner of any tab that is already using a google app). It will link to all of the google apps. It is a much faster way to access any google tools/apps.
