CV’s Spring Community Forum

It’s hard to believe that it’s already springtime in March – though Mother Nature may disagree!  This coming Monday (March 19), the CV School Board and administration will be holding their second community forum of the 2017-2018 school year… and we’d love to have you there!

Our Distinguished Alumni

One of the events I am looking forward to attending this spring is CV’s annual Distinguished Alumni program. Each year, the district honors three to five alumni who have found success since graduating from CVSD.

With the focus on schools and students in the national news, I thought it would be a good time to revisit a previous editorial I wrote for a local paper a few years ago that discusses what’s RIGHT with kids today. Below is an updated version of the article.

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the kick-off breakfast for a new program Conestoga Valley is participating in along with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region and Clark Service Group. The program is called Beyond School Walls, and it pairs six CV students with mentors from Clark Service Group. The “Bigs” and “Littles” will meet several times a year for the duration of the program.

Creating the Profile of a CV Graduate

It’s hard to believe that I’ve been here for half of a year already! In a way, it seems like forever, but definitely in a good way! We have a strong educational system in place; we focus on our students and embrace the concept of community.

Celebrating Community Service at CV

The week where we celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day – a day many spend completing community service projects – seemed like a good time to recognize the Conestoga Valley students at every grade level that made this past “season of giving” truly great through various holiday charity projects! Below is a list of some of their efforts.
