3rd Quarter Report Cards

Report cards and attendance reports will be mailed the week of 4/22.  You should be receiving your students report card by the end of next week.  Please encourage your students to make the most of their 4th quarter and work to make improvements where needed.  Thank you!


Attendance Update

As you know, we have been focused on improving attendance as a goal this year.  Our goal is to stay under 15% chronic absenteeism rate.  We are currently at 18% as of 4/18, so we have improvements to make.  Every absence matters!  The attendance rate has been getting higher as we’ve entered into the 4th quarter.  Please ensure that students are attending every day, arriving on time, and they stay focused at the end of the school year.  If students have appointments, it is better to attend part of the day than missing the whole day.  Students can also “earn back” attendance hours by staying after school with their teachers.  Please encourage them to stay after school on late bus days with a teacher where they need extra help.  Thank you!


New Director of Student Activities Named

Our current Director of Student Activities, Mr. Sanabria, is retiring on Jul 31, 2024 after 30 years of amazing service at CVHS.  We wish him well, and we want to share exciting news that Mr. Mike Parker has been selected as our new Director of Student Activities beginning Aug 1, 2024.  Mr. Parker has been an assistant principal at CVHS since 2017.  He has also served as an assistant principal and director of student services at Mt. View HS and Thoreau MS.  Mr. Parker is dedicated to the Centreville community as an educator, coach, parent, and resident.  He looks forward to continuing to strengthen the athletic, activities, arts, and all extracurricular programs for our students here at CVHS, and he is excited to make this transition.  Please join us in congratulating Mr. Parker.
