We took time this month to celebrate our local veterans. We are so appreciative of the example these men and women set for our students. Our students and staff did a great job honoring our community heroes. This time of year is exciting and so busy. Middle and High School students enjoyed a treat for Merit Roll, Honor Roll, and Principals List this week. Our students are getting ready for Christmas concerts. We will be sending midterms home on December 6th. The winter sports season is kicking off this week so come out and help support our kids. Our 10th graders visited Buckeye Career Center on Wednesday to explore their future options. Students took part in a volleyball game on Friday to raise money for our wish squad to shop for a family in need this holiday season. Time flies as we prepare for the holiday season.
It is not always possible to know what tough stuff another person is facing. We encourage our students to treat everyone kindly because we do not know what someone else is going through or the challenges someone may have. Life is hard sometimes and we hope that our students will treat others in a way that encourages and lifts them up.
Thank you to all of those who have supported us in raising funds for Share a Christmas and showing our support for neighboring schools that have faced tragedies. It is rewarding to be able to help out in times of need. We are thankful for all the support you give us daily. We live in a wonderful community and are so glad we can give back. Enjoy this season and please reach out if you need anything or have a question or concern.

From the Halls of CV-
As we enter into the season of holidays at school, I wanted to share with you some of the ideas we have been focusing on at school. As a Leader in Me school, we have talked about being a proactive person and taking responsibility for your reactions and your part in reaching goals. In the middle school and high school, we are trying to reinforce that idea by looking at the simple reminder of E+R=O. E is the EVENT, R is your RESPONSE, and O is the OUTCOME. We are asking students and staff to think about their Response and how their Response has the power to influence Outcomes. We have been talking to students about how their Response in a conflict can affect the Outcome. But also how their Response influences their ability to reach goals and find success, their Outcome. Sometimes we have no control over Events in our lives, but we do have power in how we Respond.
Our students have been setting goals and working on goals within their classes and also working on personal goals. As we strive to give students the tools they need to be successful adults, we want them to see that even large tasks can be achieved if you start small and work at it. We would love your help in reinforcing the idea that their Response has the power to influence a situation and to influence their future.
Grade cards are coming home November 3rd. Parent/ Student/ Teacher conferences will be held November 21st. Information will come out soon about how to schedule a time. As we enter into the busy winter sports season and take time to celebrate this time of year, please reach out if you have any concerns.
The afternoon route for students riding Bus #2, driven by Stefani Staples, will arrive 15 minutes later than usual for the remainder of this school year. The morning route will NOT be affected. Thank you for your understanding! Go Rockets! #SOAR
