May is Mental Health Awareness Month

May is national Mental Health Awareness month. As you know, mental health is a topic that impacts all of us and we want to encourage opportunities to open up a dialog as a school community.

"I Decided Day" - May 4

On Thursday, May 4, we celebrated "I Decided Day" at ConVal! Whether planning to attend a community college, a 4-year university, a trade or technical school, a certificate program, the military, or any other education past high school, “I Decided Day” shows full support for students making decisions for their future. On May 4, students and faculty were invited to wear a t-shirt/sweatshirt representing their decision!

Suicide Prevention Lessons

Suicide Prevention Lessons

The first week of May the school counselors are delivering Suicide Prevention Lessons (Signs of Suicide curriculum) to students in Health and Wellness 1 classes.


Below is a link to the MindWise Parent Handout. The suicide prevention lessons use the "ACT" acronym, which stands for Acknowledge, Care, and Tell. Please reach out to any of the school counselors if you would like more information.

Parents: Do you have a child with an IEP or a 504 Plan?


New Hampshire Vocational Rehabilitation (NHVR) is a division of the Department of Education that helps persons with disabilities help themselves to get a job, keep the job, and develop a life time career. NHVR starts working with eligible students as early as 11th grade, and can help with post-secondary education and/or training. There is no charge for their services, and there is a NHVR counselor assigned to CVHS. If you would like more information, consider registering for an information session. You can also reach out to your child's IEP or 504 case manager for information.
