Additional Information:

  • Cell Phone Policy: Recently there have been some questions regarding our cell phone policy. As a reminder, homeroom teachers must collect all students’ cell phones and store them in a secure location. Students can pick up their cell phones at the end of the school day. Students should not have their cell phones in their backpacks during the day. Thank you for your support with this policy.
  • Shrek Jr. Tickets:
    • Shrek Jr. Tickets are being sold before and after-school in front of the main office! Stop by to buy your tickets and support our theater program!
    • Playbill: In order to help fund some of the costs of the Shrek Jr play, we are selling space in the playbill where parents and community members can leave a note for their child or an advertisement for their local business. Please help us promote this opportunity by sharing the information with your parents on Class Dojo.

  • #FeasterStaysFit
    • Did you know that exercising on a regular basis could help rid your airway of bacteria that lead to colds, or make your body produce more antibodies that fight sickness? (source: )
    • We know how busy educators are and how important it is for us to make time to exercise. To help us stay healthy, we have partnered with Teresa Mazzarella to offer fitness classes to our staff for an affordable price. If you are interested in learning more and trying out a FREE class, join us this Wednesday at 3:15 near the PE building. We hope to see you there!
  • Clearing Cache: if your students are having any trouble accessing any of the programs through the CVESD student webpage, please have them try clearing the cache on their iPad.
