Volume 2 - Issue 11 - October 14, 2019

Message from the Principal

Dear Cavaliers,


After a short three-day week, we are back and off to our first full week of the second quarter. This time in the academic year is very important as it tends to go by very fast. We have Thanksgiving break coming up shortly and before you know it, the semester will be over.


Thank you to our teachers and staff for planning lessons that engage our students, and providing multiple opportunities for our students to show mastery of the content standards.


Parents, this is a time where monitoring your students grades on CANVAS is very critical. Not only can you see some of the lessons and activities that our teachers create for our students, but this is a place where you can see your students progress, scores and even communicate directly with our teachers. Please use CANVAS as a resource to help your student be successful.


Follow the link below to create your own parent account or you can simply log in to your student's account by using their student ID number as the USER NAME and 8 digit birthday for the PASSWORD.

At CVM we work HARD, we dream BIG, we believe in OURSELVES and we never, ever , GIVE UP!

Nutrition Break Supervision - TEAM 1!

Team 1 please be at your supervision posts this week during nutrition break. Please note the new RED line in the quad north of the 300 building. In order to provide more space for students to enjoy their nutrition break, we have expanded the area where they are allowed to be to the RED line. This will be only during Nutrition Break and Single Lunch on Friday's.


Thank you!


Mr. Casas
