Dear Aviators,

I absolutely love our Utah fall season! I didn’t always love it because it meant summer was over, but as I age it has become my favorite season. I love wearing sweaters, drinking hot apple cider, and feeling the crunchy fall leaves under my feet and the aroma from baking all things pumpkin. I hope you all enjoy this wonderful season!

Please make note of the following:

1. Reflections Due Friday

Parents, please encourage your child to submit a PTA Reflections entry. Students may enter Reflections in one or more categories, but may only enter each category once.

Entrants must submit entries online at www.utahpta.org/ref. Alle entries are due this Friday, September 30th.

2. Scooters and Skateboards

Cedar Valley High School is seeing a large increase in students using scooters and skateboards in the hallways and common areas. Although we love the physical activity of riding scooters and boards to school, they are dangerous and destructive in the hallways. With nearly 3000 students, there is a risk of student injury in addition to damage to school property. Please inform your students that scooters and skateboards need to be left in cars, or placed in lockers during school hours. We also would like students to secure them next to the bikes if possible on the stadium fence.

3. Utah College Application Week October 3-7

Utah College Application Week (UCAW) is coming October 3rd – 7th. The purpose of UCAW is to acquaint students with the college application process and to communicate the importance of applying to college and financial aid.

During the week, all seniors will be encouraged to apply for admission to at least one college or university and to fill out the FAFSA.

On Wednesday, October 5th, students and their families are invited to attend our College and FAFSA night from 5-7 pm. FAFSA volunteers will be available to help in submitting the application for financial aid. We will also have college representatives, military, and other organizations here to answer questions. In preparation, please refer to the College Information, Fee Waivers and FAFSA Application Information Sheet.

4. Health and Well-Being Screener

In conjunction with the College and FAFSA night, Cedar Valley will host a health and well-being screener that assesses the social-emotional strengths and needs of students.

The assessment takes about 15 minutes to complete. All results are confidential and secure. Alpine District service providers will be available to go over the results with students and parents.

Mental health screenings help identify mental health conditions early and connect students with help. Screening also helps counselors to better recognize early warning signs. If you feel this screener would be beneficial to your student, please register at https://tinyurl.com/2p8dsznm.

For questions about the screener please contact Rebecca Andreasen at [email protected] or phone number (801) 610-8458.

For questions about UCAW please contact Marcie Murri at [email protected] or (801) 610-8826. For continual updates and scholarship information see our counseling website here or follow us on Instagram @cedarvalleystudentcenter

5. ASVAB Testing (Military Testing)

Cedar Valley will be offering the ASVAB test here on campus starting at 9:05 A.M. the morning of October 20th. Please sign up here in order to reserve your seat and be offered the exam. For additional information about the ASVAB please visit https://www.military.com/join-armed-forces/asvab

Dear Aviators,

Welcome back to another great week! Homecoming was beyond amazing! I want to thank our teachers, staff, and students for making it one of the most memorable homecomings I have ever been part of. I know their efforts were appreciated and they did a fantastic job.

Please make note of the following:

1. Funding For CVHS By Taking Surveys

Several of our teams are asking parents to take surveys so their teams can earn money. This will cost you nothing other than answering a couple of questions per survey. Each piece of eligible feedback = $2.00

Text “CVHS” to 90412

Share up to 75 opinions = up to $150

for Cedar Valley High School

So far CV has earned about $6,000, however; we can earn around $25,000. The fundraiser will end on 09/23/2022 at 11:59 p.m. You can choose where your survey money will go. Link Here

2. Reflections Due This Week
Parents, please encourage your child to submit a PTA Reflections entry. Students may enter Reflections in one or more categories, but may only enter each category once.

Entrants must submit entries online at www.utahpta.org/ref.

Reasons to enter Reflections:

Awards!! And recognition for your artistic skills and abilities!

Scholarships – if you compete at the national competition, there is a free trip to the ceremony, and a monetary scholarship of up to $1,000 is given to winners. And yes, high school kids from Utah have won before!

Any questions about rules and what/how to submit an entry, go here:

https://www.utahpta.org/reflections-rules-category-faqs

3. Parents of the Class of 2023

We will be starting our Senior College and Career Readiness meetings on Tuesday, September 6th. These meetings will run through September 30th.

Counselors will be meeting with each senior to review their graduation requirements and schedules. They will also discuss events coming up during their Senior year. We will also be talking about college and career options and the student’s future plans.

If parents would like to attend their student’s CCR they are welcome to make an appointment by calling 801-610-8826 or by clicking on the appointment link next to your student’s counselor’s name.

We look forward to meeting with each of our 2022-2023 Seniors!

4. Literacy

Students will be given a reading test this week during Jet Time so we can focus on literacy this year. Teachers will be better equipped to help students with their reading goals and will encourage students to become better readers. Maybe it is the elementary principal inside me that still believes students should work on being better readers even in high school!

Dear Aviators:

With the first few weeks behind us, it’s difficult to believe that our midterm is here! September 14th. If you see an issue with your child’s grade, please email the teacher directly. I recommend that you get on Skyward daily and work with your child as well. I just spoke with a math teacher team this morning and they said most students will pass if they attend because they work very hard to help our students succeed. With that said, please look at your child’s attendance and carefully monitor your child’s attendance. Students’ success is typically tied to attendance.

Please make note of the following:

1. Gear Up Utah

This is a FREE college prep program. For your student to qualify to be enrolled in GEAR UP Utah, they need to be eligible under the Free and Reduced-Price School Meals Guidelines. Working together we can give your student an edge in getting ready for college and determining financial options to help pay for it. All services are provided at no cost. Apply at uvu.edu/gearup or use this form and turn it into your school counselor.

2. ACT Prep Classes

ACT classes will begin the week of Sept. 26th after school Mon. Tues. & Thurs. 2:30-3:30. Students and parents can pay in the finance office or on my school fees $25.

3. Text Message Announcements for Student Activities Now Available

Our CVHS Student Council makes an effort to share information on student activities, dances, and spirit weeks through posters throughout the school, banners in the commons, school announcements, parent emails, and Instagram. Even with these efforts we frequently hear that patrons and students did not hear about events that are happening at the school. In an effort to meet our students where they are at–on their phones–we have created grade-level channels on the BAND App where we will now be sending out this information via TEXT MESSAGE.

This app does require students to download the app to receive messages, but it is the only group text app that allows for groups as large as our student body. Receiving the texts is totally optional, but the app does need to be downloaded in order to receive the messages. All chat and posting features are turned off. Students will only receive messages from Student Council Advisors for full school activities or their Class President for grade-level announcements and activities. They will not be able to message other students. For students who do not have a phone or cannot download apps, parents are welcome to sign up to receive the texts and share them with their students.

To sign up, click the link below for the applicable student grade level and follow the instructions to download the app, and sign up to receive messages. If you have more than one student, and you will be the one joining, you will download the app once but can join multiple channels.

Freshmen:

4. Please Drive Safe and Remind Your Young Drivers to do the Same

We are seeing an increased amount of student traffic at the school and in neighborhoods all around Eagle Mountain. Please remind your students to follow all posted speed limits and driving regulations. We want all of our students and families to be safe.

5. Order Pictures, & School Picture Final Retake Day Reminder

If you missed our pre-boarding launch and didn’t get your school pictures taken, we will have a makeup day Fri Sept. 16th. This is a new date, but we are hoping to still have the retake day in October as we have advertised, but this may change.

6. East Shore Testing Closed September 14, 2022

Please make note of the following:

1. Back to School Information

Here is all of your back-to-school information in case you’re new. CVHS Boarding Pass.

2. Class Changes

During the first two days of school, students will not change classes due to the demand of helping students that don’t have complete schedules. Please be patient with the counseling department. With so many new students arriving, they need this time to help them register for school.

3. Order Pictures, & School Picture Final Retake Day

If you’d still like to order school pictures, please click here.

If you missed our pre-boarding launch and didn’t get your school pictures taken, we will have a makeup day Fri Sept. 16th. This is a new date, but we are hoping to still have the re-take day in October as we have advertised, but this may change.

4. Lunch

Lunch menus can be found online at www.nutrislice.com. School breakfast and lunch can be paid online at www.mypaymentsplus.com.

Our cafeteria is completely keyless, students scan their ID Cards or a picture of their ID Cards, to purchase meals and Ala’ Carte Items. If they have misplaced or no longer have an ID Card they can give us their Student ID Number until it is replaced.

Hi Everyone,

Just as a reminder it is our graduation tomorrow. We will be busy with all of the final preparations and will not be in the office. The school will be open after Memorial Day on Tuesday, May 31, from 8:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. Summer office hours are Monday-Thursday from 8:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.

My team is already putting together our summer mailer (airline ticket) with a QR code that will provide you with all the back-to-school information. I can’t wait for you to see it!

I appreciate getting to know so many of you. We have the best families out here in our beautiful valley! As you know, it is better in the valley!

I hope you all have a wonderful summer and enjoy time with family and friends. If you have any good smoker BBQ recipes I would love it if you would share those with me! That’s something I love to do as well, but I have so much to learn.

I have the best job in the world! Thank you for your love and support!

Monday, May 23, 2022

Dear Aviators,

Congratulations! We are officially on the countdown until graduation this week!.

Please be aware of the following:

1. Schedule Tomorrow:

Tomorrow the bells will be on a regular schedule. All students will go to their 1st-period class at 7:45 am. Starting around 8 A.M., we will call students down one Terminal at a time to get their yearbooks. The students can then attend their classes to get signatures from their peers and teachers.

2. Yearbook Second Chance:

Students will be able to pick up their yearbooks at the signing party today, Monday 5/23 at 7:00 P.M. All yearbooks are sold out, however; many of you asked if we could order more. Josten’s has offered to do a second printing at cost. Because they are not part of the original bulk printing rate, these will be $125.00 plus tax so it will be closer to $135.00 dollars or so. If you would like to pre-pay and order a yearbook, please go to myschoolfees on our website to make your purchase under “2nd Chance Yearbook”. These will arrive towards the end of June.

3. Summer School:

CVHS will offer limited summer school offerings this summer: English 9,10, & 11 Secondary Math 1 & 2. The CVHS Summer School schedule can be found here. Students may also attend Lehi HS which will offer a variety of subjects. You can find the Lehi HS Summer schedule here. To register students must pay the $25/class to our Finance Office before the last day of school. For any questions please reach out to your student’s counselor.

a.. The cap and gown issued by the school represent the uniform for ASD graduation. They should be worn appropriately and not altered.

b. The recently passed HB30 expanded the graduation uniform, allowing cultural expressions for cultural regalia and objects of “religious and cultural significance” for our qualified Native students and inclusive of other cultures. (i.e., Pacific Islander formal Ta’ovala, leis, feather, flowers in moderation, necklaces, etc.)

c. Additions to the cap and gown should reflect culturally significant objects to the students, families, and their communities. These are not limited to only one. These objects should not include representations of drugs, violence, political speech, flags, or other non-religious or non-culturally significant objects.

d. Students must obtain administrative pre-approval for adjustments to graduation wear. Pre-approval should allow for appropriate cultural expressions without causing last-minute misunderstandings and frustrations. Please make an appointment to meet before May 24, 2022, at 3:00 P.M.
