May Updates

Dear CVHS Students & Families,

Welcome to May, the last month of the 2022-2023 school year!!! Last day of school is June 2nd & Graduation will be on June 2nd from 4pm to 6pm.

With less than 5 weeks of school left, please continue to check in with your students and monitor their academic progress through Aeries.  Progress report just came out last week - Check grades!

Ensure your student is submitting their work on time and completing missing assignments, as well as preparing for any tests. Students need to use this time to focus on current work.
We recommend parents and students reach out to the teachers for subjects in which your student may need support.  Please remember that there are built-in times during the school day to help students academically, as well as after school tutoring.

* For students enrolled in CVVA classes, please make sure to monitor your student(s) Edgenuity to monitor their progress on course completion. 

REMINDER: Seniors must earn 230 credits in all required subjects by passing classes with a grade of D or higher) to participate in the Graduation Ceremony.  Also, for Seniors going to a 4-year college, grades of D or F may jeopardize their admission status.
