Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,

Whew! We are in the middle of homecoming week as I prepare my letter to you. It has been a great week thus far! The level of school spirit on display by our students and staff has been exceptional. I am sure your dinner table had conversations surrounding “Anything but a Backpack” day on Wednesday. It has been a crazy and fun week and we are looking forward to Friday night’s tailgate, football game, performances, and the homecoming announcements. I don’t want to forget about Saturday’s Homecoming Dance which should be another great adventure! A huge shout out to the CV Student Council for the planning, preparation, and execution of this week! We have the best students and they give back to our school community in such a positive way, we truly appreciate them and their leadership.


Fall to Winter Sports: Tryouts are underway for winter sports and as our fall sports end their seasons, I wanted to congratulate all of our players and coaches. Many of our teams are competing in their respective state tournaments right now. Best of luck to our individual competitors and our teams over the next couple of weeks!


CVHS Site Council Meeting: On December 1st, we will have a presentation by our School Resource Officer (SRO), Officer Dietz on drug awareness and trends. I would encourage you to learn about the current drug trends. If you are interested in joining us, the meeting will be held in the library at 5 pm.


Thank you for your continued support and please let us know how we can support you and your student!


Every Person, Every Day!


Mr. Tyler Dumas

Principal

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.

Spanish Honor Society

On the first and second of November, families across South and Latin America gathered to honor and remember deceased loved ones. Entire families will construct traditional ofrendas, or altars— an important part of respecting and paying homage to the deceased. It is believed that the souls of the dead return to these ofrendas to visit the living families in homes, businesses and cemeteries. In order to guide their loved ones to the altars, the paths are marked with flower petals showing them the way. Below is an example of a traditional ofrenda in Mexico.

Big picture

The ofrendas will typically include traditional food, fresh flowers, pan de muerto, candles, copal incense, cloths, and sugar folk toys. Apart from the ofrendas, decorations include tombstones, skulls and skeletons made of clay and other materials, sugar skulls, and papel picado. Orange and yellow marigolds are the main flowers used for Dia de los Muertos, as their vibrant colors and pungent scent lead the souls to the altars. As Dia de los Muertos is about celebrating the deceased, music is played at home and at the cemeteries to keep the mood light and celebratory. Furthermore, the name of each departed is written on a sugar skull to be eaten at the end of the celebration. Most importantly, a photograph of the departed soul is placed on the altar so that the deceased can find their way to the altar. Dia de los Muertos acts as a way to keep the memory of that person alive through remembering what they loved to do, eat, drink and look like. In honor of this special holiday, members of the Spanish Honor Society have set up an ofrenda in the cafeteria honoring Dia de los Muertos!

Big picture

In honor of Hispanic Heritage month which is celebrated from September 15 to October 15, the Spanish Honor Society wanted to honor impactful members of the Hispanic community.

NASA Astronaut Dr. Ellen Ochoa was the first Hispanic Director of the Johnson Space Center and the second female director. Dr. Ochoa became the first Hispanic woman to go to space on the nine-day STS-56 mission aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery in 1993. She earned NASA’s highest awards, the Distinguished Service Medal and the Presidential Distinguished Rank Award, in 2015.

*********************************

Hello Coyotes!

If we have yet to meet, my name is Ms. Katie & I'm excited to be the new bookstore manager. Some of you may recognize me from my short stint at the front desk. My daughter and I just moved here from Minnesota a little over a year ago with our black lab, Frank. Yes, Minnesota is really that cold. Yes, I do have an accent.

I have already learned so much about all the bookstore has to offer. I am the one to come to if you have lost something or need Campo Crazy shirts. I have PE clothing, parking permits and tickets to Campo events! Plus, I'm a great conversationalist.

For up-to-date information on anything having to do with the bookstore and photos of my dog, follow @campo.bookstore on Instagram.

Library Updates

*********************************

Library Information:

We’ve taken down all our spooky Halloween decorations and put up 4 new displays for the month of November. In this newsletter, we’ll feature our display about Native American authors. The display showcases 5 different authors giving students a QR code to explore information about each author. Those 5 authors, plus a few others that we didn’t have room to feature, all have books on the display for any student interested.

Big picture

Chromebook Information:

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

TIP: If the Chromebook doesn’t turn on right away, don’t panic! Give it a moment. It should turn on a few seconds after you open it.

Digital Citizenship:

Here is a tip from CommonSense.org that will help you as a parent guide your teen when it comes to posting online and creating a digital footprint. Use privacy settings. Sit down with teens to show the privacy settings you use on your apps and devices. Talk about why you keep certain information private or limited to a small group. Ask them what information they feel comfortable sharing and why.
