Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,

I feel as if every time I share an update with you I discuss how fast time is going by and how active our campus is at this time of year. Well, it is almost May! We have some outstanding seniors and underclassmen to celebrate.

Our Junior/Senior prom is next Saturday, 4/23, which is always an exciting time for our students and staff. It is great to see our students dressed up and celebrating together.

Our annual scholarship ceremony will be held on Wednesday, April 27th during Coyote

Time in the auditorium. This is where we recognize our seniors who have earned

scholarships and they declare their post-secondary plans. This event will be live-streamed. It is a fantastic opportunity for underclassmen to see the different opportunities available to them in the coming years and for everyone on campus to be a part of the celebration. This ceremony is also where we announce our Salutatorian, Valedictorian, and Coyote Excellence award winners. We will also be recognizing our Copper Coyote award winners as well as our Golden Scholars at this event. We will reach out to all students and their families that have earned these recognitions regarding the assembly and subsequent celebrations that are taking place to recognize all of our students and their success in the classroom and beyond.

On Friday, 4/29, we have our Senior Declaration Day which is an open-house style event during both lunches. Seniors can win prizes such as college gear and other great items. Seniors “declare” where they will go after high school on the map of the U.S. The day is meant to celebrate our seniors and their plans for the future, whether that be attending a university, community college, trade school, military, entering the workforce or going on a mission. It is a great way to celebrate our seniors!

Also on 4/29, we will have our annual AP Kickoff event which gets our AP students excited about their tests and celebrates their hard work this year! This is a fun event that we encourage all of our AP students to attend. Their AP Kickoff shirts will be handed out at this event as well!

It is a good kind of busy, celebrating our amazing students. I hope you have a great holiday break!

Best regards,

Mr. Tyler Dumas

ECAP Presentation

ECAP: Four Year Plan

All students have seen a presentation about ECAP (Education-Career Action Plan) in their Advisory class. We have attached a copy of the slide show here for your reference. Part of the presentation shows students how to enter their four-year plan for classes into the Infinite Campus Academic Planning feature. ALL students must have their plan entered by May of this school year. It is from this planner that all course requests will be filled. Again, please review these choices with your child to ensure that it is accurate and complete. These plans may be changed as students learn more about themselves and their plans for the future. The classes entered for sophomore year will be locked in February.

If you or your child have any questions, we encourage you to contact the assigned counselor. We are happy to help in this process.

CVHS Prom Reveal



On Saturday, March 19th, the Campo AFJROTC Drill Team competed against 15 larger schools in the JROTC Gallegos Drill Invitational at The Academies of South Mountain. Months of hard work paid off when the team put out their best performance and came home with a third place in Armed Inspection (individual inspection of each cadet, in their dress uniform, including an oral knowledge test). The team then stunned the "big schools" that typically compete on regional and higher levels by taking first place in armed regulation drill! The hard work during "A" hour paid off BIGTIME! They did Campo and AZ-951 proud!

key club

The CVHS chapter of Key Club is hosting the final campus-wide service project for the year. The club has developed "We've Got Your Backs" and we would love our generous Campo Family members to join us in supporting our fellow GPS students in need.

"We've Got Your Backs" is a project that will help collect school supplies for students at a Title 1 school in Gilbert. The goal is for each club, team, family and 3rd-hour class to fill a new or gently-used backpack with specific supplies as requested by our friends at Islands Elementary.

Our goal is to provide 50 students with a backpack and the supplies they need to start the school year off right! As you may know, those back-to-school supplies lists can be extensive and fulfilling them is a hardship for some families.

This project will last from April 7th to April 30th, and the winners (those who complete and turn in their backpacks first) will receive a 3D printed "We've Got Your Backs" trophy. In the long run, we aim for "We've Got Your Backs" to become an annual event for Campo Verde where we choose a different Title 1 school every year, but have the same goal in mind; supporting Gilbert families and students.

Please check out the flyers we are using for the project along with the list of supplies that are being asked to be collected. The supplies must be new and the backpack can be lightly used/new. If you would like to sponsor a backpack, please have fun shopping and bring all donations to the front office at CVHS on or before April 30. If you are sponsoring a backpack as a family, each of your CVHS students can earn 3 hours of service! If you have any questions, please contact the Key Club Advisor, Ms. Kathleen Diggs in Counseling.

Please complete this form if you would like to participate! We've Got Your Backs Form

Members of Key Club attended their first-ever district conference, along with over 400 students from Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. Participants convened at the Sheraton Phoenix Crescent Hotel for three days of workshops, elections, contests, awards and fun. It was an opportunity for students to learn more about Key Club and Kiwanis International. Throughout the weekend, participants practiced leadership, public speaking, team building, problem-solving strategies and were challenged in ways that helped them grow.

The Campo Verde chapter of Key Club is relatively new, as we chartered our organization in 2021-22. Ours is the only charter in Gilbert Public Schools and we are eager to grow through encouraging our other high schools to develop chapters. Members have been working this year to start and sponsor a Builders Club at South Valley Junior High School and a K-Kids club at Ashland Ranch in order to provide a consistent means for students in our extended Campo Family to volunteer and become service leaders in our community. We are excited about these clubs!

At the Southwest Division Key Club District Conference, Campo Verde was awarded 2nd place in the Major Emphasis category for our efforts with "Howling Helpers." Our members have been attending after-school mentoring and tutoring at Ashland Ranch Elementary for years and have developed a system to keep the program both effective and sustainable. In addition, our Key Club received another 2nd place award for our Single Service event; "Winner, Winner TURKEY Dinner." This is an event we have been hosting for 10 years and so many in our Campo Family contribute to its success. We have helped other schools, like Queen Creek High School start the event on their own campuses. Finally, our Campo Verde Key Club was awarded the 1st place trophy, recognized as the #1 chapter with the Distinguished Club Diamond Level award for our service and efforts throughout the year in the areas of Character Building, Caring, Leadership and Inclusiveness. CONGRATULATIONS to all 143 of our members!

Two student leaders took huge steps in leadership by running for position on the District and Division Boards. Matias Gonzalez gave a speech at the District caucus and was elected Lieutenant Governor of the Superstition District. He will preside over Key Clubs at Higley, Perry, ASU Prep, Queen Creek, Skyline and Williams Field High Schools. This will be an incredible opportunity for him to learn and grow as an organizational and service leader. Matias will be heading to Washington D.C. for the International Convention in July. Outgoing Key Club President, Rebekah Allen, threw her hat into the ring and ran for a Division Board position. This required her to attend all nine District caucuses, then speak to all participants in the general conference and finally to all present at the House of Delegates. We are happy to announce that she was elected to the office of Southwest Division Bulletin Editor. Her duties include collaborating with all Lieutenant Governors and creating quarterly newsletters. We are immensely proud of these two students and wish them every success in the upcoming year.

Campo Verde HIgh School Key Club encourages all students to become members and start serving others in the community. One person can make a huge difference! For information on how to become involved in Key Club, please contact Kathleen Diggs at


The following students have been elected to leadership positions for the CVHS Key Club for the 2022-23 school year:

  • President: Tori Barrera

senior declaration day

Senior Declaration Day Friday April 29th!

This is an open-house style event during both lunch hours where only Seniors can enter raffles to win college gear, gift cards, and big ticket items. Each Senior will also get a chance to declare where they will go after high school on the map of the US. This day is dedicated to all Campo Seniors, with their new major accomplishment of graduating high school, celebrating their after high school plans, whether they are attending a university, community college, trade school, military, working, mission...we are proud of you Seniors!

Our Senior Declaration Day committee works hard at reaching out to local businesses for donations as well, but sometimes we need a little bit more help. (Our local universities have graciously donated college swag for us to raffle off at our event). Our theme this year is "A whole new world". We would be so grateful and appreciative of any donations to our event!

Here is our wish list:

-individually packaged snacks for goodie bags

-boxes of Otter Pops

-old rugs (are you throwing a rug out to bulk pick up soon? Considering donating to us for this event!)

Please reach out to Erin Carpenter with any questions or if you are interested in donating to our event by April 6th-

NHS is excited to announce that so far this year, we have logged over 1,400 hours of community service!

In addition, we conducted a service event where we made tie blankets for the animals.

A huge thanks to everyone that donated supplies and helped out! We were able to collect over 400 pounds of dog food and nearly 80 blankets for the Back the Blue pet shelter! A huge thanks to everyone that donated supplies and helped out! Also, NHS officer elections are just around the corner!

Biomed Stop the Bleed training

Students have the knowledge, but we focused on how to extend and share that knowledge with others. Seniors made the video clips to explain. And it was put together by our Biomed officers. We took 85 Biomed students to then inform our entire student body, over 2 days, how to pack the wounds, use tourniquets, cpr, how to use AED, and chest seals. Our Admins and SRO feel strongly about this that every classroom is equipped with a red bag contains a tourniquet and chest seal.


Medical Documentary Night is an opportunity to showcase the top 5 videos that brought awareness to a medical problem. It is a year long project for level 3 and allows them to show their G.R.I.T. (goal oriented, relevance, inspirational, and teamwork) through their documentary. The class watched all the videos and selected the Top 5 for the evening. The subjects and families are invited to celebrate their stories. Judges were on hand to choose the Medical Documentary of GRIT. Congratulations to Lauren Christensen and Ellynor Conrad's video titled "It's Not Rare". Thank you to the Dodgers Family for allowing us to document her son's story on Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. You can check out the video on the Biomed's Website. Biomed website

Physical Education

Our PE Department is excited to work with all of our students in PHYSICAL EDUCATION, SPORTS TRAINING, DANCE, YOGA, and UNIFIED PHYSICAL EDUCATION classes.

PE, Dance, Yoga UNIFORMS:

Uniforms can be purchased in person in our CVHS Bookstore. All students need to have the proper uniform and a combination lock. Please contact Coach Cornell or your PE teacher if you have any questions.


We are excited to offer another year of "AFTER SCHOOL WEIGHTS" we will be opening the weight room after school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 2:20-3:00pm. Please see Coach Cornell or Coach Bishop for more information.


We will be offering lunchtime intramurals during both lunches for any student interested in being active. Intramurals will be held in either the mini or main gymnasium and occasionally outside (when the weather cools down). Please see Coach Cornell for more information.

SECURING BELONGINGS IN PE LOCKERS: Just a reminder that due to COVID we are not permitting our Physical Education student's to store their PE clothes in locker's overnight. We are asking our students to bring their PE clothes each day, change out in the locker room and securely LOCK ALL BELONGINGS in a large locker (provided) and then at the end of class period, take their sweaty PE uniform home and wash it for the next day. We believe this will cut down on the amount of bacteria in the locker rooms. Questions, please contact your student's teacher.

REGISTRATION for 2022-23:

We encourage all students to stay active and healthy by registering for one of our many Physical Education course offerings (please see informational flyer for more information).

stress information

1. Stress affects EVERYONE!

  • Some may cope more effectively and recover more quickly.
  • Stress may be short term or occurrences that continue over time.
  • 3 Types of Stress: 1). ROUTINE STRESS (every day work, school. etc. 2). TRAUMATIC STRESS (accident, disaster, death, injury, etc) 3). SUDDEN CHANGE STRESS: Stress brought on by sudden negative change (job loss, divorce, illness)

2. Not all stress is bad!

  • Can motivate people to perform at their best or "rise to the occasion" (high achieving people feel stress).
  • Can be "life saving" in times of danger (brain more "wired in").

3. Long term stress can harm health

  • Chronic / long term stress can damage the immune system, digestion, sleep, and reproductive issues.
  • Headaches, sleeplessness, sadness, anger, irritable behavior.
  • If Long term stress occurs heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and mental disorders can develop.


1. Recognize the signs of stress.

2. GET HELP! Talk to a health care provider.

3. Regular EXERCISE!

4. Relaxing activities (yoga, tai chi, gentle exercises)

5. Set PRIORITIES (what must get done and what can wait).... You don't have to do everything at once!

6. Stay connected to FRIENDS and FAMILY that can provide support and help!


From Mayo Clinic:

1. Stick to a sleep schedule

Set aside no more than eight hours for sleep. The recommended amount of sleep for a healthy adult is at least seven hours. Most people don't need more than eight hours in bed to achieve this goal. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try to limit the difference in your sleep schedule on weeknights and weekends to no more than one hour. Being consistent reinforces your body's sleep-wake cycle. If you don't fall asleep within about 20 minutes, leave your bedroom and do something relaxing. Read or listen to soothing music. Go back to bed when you're tired. Repeat as needed.

2. Pay attention to what you eat and drink

Don't go to bed hungry or stuffed. In particular, avoid heavy or large meals within a couple of hours of bedtime. Your discomfort might keep you up. Nicotine, caffeine and alcohol deserve caution, too. The stimulating effects of nicotine and caffeine take hours to wear off and can wreak havoc on quality sleep. And even though alcohol might make you feel sleepy, it can disrupt sleep later in the night.

3. Create a restful environment

Create a room that's ideal for sleeping. Often, this means cool, dark and quiet. Exposure to light might make it more challenging to fall asleep. Avoid prolonged use of light-emitting screens just before bedtime. Consider using room-darkening shades, earplugs, a fan or other devices to create an environment that suits your needs. Doing calming activities before bedtime, such as taking a bath or using relaxation techniques, might promote better sleep.

4. Limit daytime naps

Long daytime naps can interfere with nighttime sleep. If you choose to nap, limit yourself to up to 30 minutes and avoid doing so late in the day. If you work nights, however, you might need to nap late in the day before work to help make up your sleep debt.

5. Include physical activity in your daily routine

Regular physical activity can promote better sleep. Avoid being active too close to bedtime, however. Spending time outside every day might be helpful, too.

6. Manage worries

Try to resolve your worries or concerns before bedtime. Jot down what's on your mind and then set it aside for tomorrow. Stress management might help. Start with the basics, such as getting organized, setting priorities and delegating tasks. Meditation also can ease anxiety.

Coyote Strength camp

Hello CV Family,

This summer we will be offering our 13th annual "Coyote Strength Camp" at Campo Verde High School (runs Monday-Thursdays June 6th-June 30th - various sessions and times listed on attached flier). This camp continues to grow each year and has been a huge positive success throughout our community. We would like to invite all of our CV Students to join us as we continue to teach the fundamentals of strength, speed, and agility training. More importantly, we will teach the importance of values such as character, commitment, and courage. Our goal is for all of our campers to gain strength, explosiveness, speed, agility, and at the same time learn the importance of developing character and the vision to set goals and and the mind set to chase dreams and make them a reality.

Library Updates


Library Information:

For the month of April, we created a display to go along with the springtime. It is called, “Garden and Genres”. The display looks like a garden that is growing books from different genres (memoir, science fiction, fractured fairy tales, realistic fiction, suspense). Students can pick a book from a genre they like, or try out a book from a genre they haven’t read before.
We also have a display up for any Disney lovers out there. There is a series of books called Twisted Tales that take a Disney version of a fairytale and change one aspect of the story to create a whole new drama. For example, in the novel, So This is Love, the author spins the Cinderella story by having Cinderella never try on the glass slipper. There are 11 of these novels in the Twisted Tale series, so plenty of options for you to enjoy.

Chromebook Information:
Summer is coming! Encourage your student to take his/her Chromebook into the library to get fixed if he/she is having any problems with it. When there is no intentional damage, there is no cost to have these problems fixed. And it is better to get it fixed before summer so you have a properly working Chromebook over the break.
Digital Citizenship:
Here is an infographic that gives 10 things to consider BEFORE posting on social media. Use this as a discussion starter with your teen.
