Message from the Principal


On behalf of our Cavalier family, I would like to say thank you to all of those who have served in our Armed Forces. Thousands of Americans have served in our military and many have paid the ultimate price to secure the freedoms we enjoy today. This Veterans Day, join me in honoring those true heroes that have served our great country.


Join me in welcoming the latest members to our Cavalier Family. Michelle Guerrero has joined our team as our Bilingual Tester. Ms. Guerrero will be with us on Tuesday's, Thursday's and every other Friday as she is splitting her assignment between CVM and HTM. Please make sure you stop by her office and say hello!

I also want to welcome Mr. Adrian Trujillo who will be teaching Read 180 Fundamentals and Read 180 Fundamentals Support. He will start at CVM on Tuesday November 12, 2019.
