We are wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving!  We are fortunate and grateful to have a wonderful CVHS school community!


Report Cards and Attendance Letters

First quarter report cards will be mailed the week of Thanksgiving, so you will be receiving them soon.  Along with grades, you will also receive an Attendance Report Card, which will show you absences and unexcused tardies for your student.  Improving attendance continues to be a key goal for us this year at CVHS.  This includes both excused and unexcused absences.  Excused absences also count toward chronic attendance measures and impact student performance.  If you are planning a holiday trip, please minimize the time a student will be absent.  Attending a partial day is also better than missing the whole day when possible.


CVHS Grading Information

As we close the first quarter, please be reminded to check the CVHS 

grading Information on the school website if you have any questions.


Upcoming Performing Arts Events

Come out this weekend to see the CVHS Theatre Arts production of Girls In the Boat.  Our theatre students have worked so incredibly hard these past few weeks - we hope you are able to join them as they tell this wonderful story.


Girls in the Boat was inspired by the true stories of the U.S. women’s Olympic rowing team. A group of smart, fiery young women fight discrimination and prejudice to compete in the male-dominated sport of rowing, finding an unlikely ally in a taciturn men’s coach. Together, they confront ridicule and overcome obstacles. The women refuse to sit on a bus and wait their turn in a battle for gender equality in a sport that makes national news and takes them all the way to the world championships. Against the rhythm of their oars, these women forge bonds and overcome disagreements in their search for greatness. Despite their diverse backgrounds and politics, they literally pull together to reach their goals in a fast-paced drama that reminds us of what we can all do if we have a common purpose. As our heroines break barriers of race and gender, their newly minted U.S. women’s rowing team goes on to become the most winning sports team in American history.
