Where did the 2018-19 school year go? Each year time seems to pass by faster and faster. It is important for us as parents to reflect on the schedules we keep in terms of making time for our children. We really only have a short time with them living under our roofs so we need to make the most of it. Whether you have a second grader, an eighth grader or a senior, please take the time to be present in your children's lives. Make family time a priority and also one on one time with your children. Attend events that they participate in or talk about life in general when riding along in the car. We will never get those moments back.
I would like to thank the community for passing the budget for the 2019-2020 school year. We are fortunate to have a community that values education. Over the summer, the capital project construction will be in full swing. The main office will be closed on Fridays during the months of July and August. The administrative team will be busy planning for the next school year. We will continue to focus on social-emotional learning. In addition, we will be implementing ways to improve instruction and also to increase overall student achievement along with student involvement.
Graduation for the Class of 2019 will take place on Saturday, June 29th at 11:00. The venue for Graduation will take place at the school in the high school gym. To our Graduates… a new chapter is about to begin. Make the most of it. You are the author. Have a positive mindset and be proud of who you are. As they say, the sky's the limit. I wish you much success and happiness.
In terms of retirements, CV-S will be saying farewell to three employees who have served our district well. Terry Prime, mechanic/bus driver, has worked at CV-S for ten years. Terri Adams, secondary art teacher, has taught in the district for twenty-seven years. Susan Hayes, Licensed Teacher Assistant, has worked at CV-S for twenty-nine years. We thank you all for your dedication to the district. Each of you has made a positive impact on our students. We wish you a happy and healthy retirement!
In closing, I would like to thank each and everyone of you for supporting our school. Without your support we would not be able to do the many wonderful things that we do here at CV-S.
There are many events taking place in June. PK graduation, athletic awards night, drama and music awards night, class night and graduation just to name a few. Please visit the school calendar on the website for a comprehensive list of events.
