Born to Fly – 2022-23 School Theme

January 23, 2023

Aviators,

With mid-term around the corner Friday, February 3rd, it is so important to visit Skyward and check the progress of your student(s). I used to do this with my children each Thursday and held weekend privileges based on assignments that were turned in or not and this truly helped my kids to avoid procrastination!

Please make note of the following:

1. Future Nurses

Students who are interested in doing nursing are invited to attend our UVU Nursing Open House on February 10th. See this flier, This is a good opportunity to meet some of the UVU Nursing faculty, students who are currently in the Nursing program at UVU and see the Simulation lab on our campus.

2. Summer School

This year we will be offering Summer School at Cedar Valley High School for students who need to make up for failed classes. This will be offered June 12th – June 30th from 8:00 AM -2:30 PM and will be a flat fee of $25. There will be 3 sessions each day. Each session would be worth .25 credits, and students can earn up to .75 credits. These classes require mandatory attendance for the full 3 weeks so please plan accordingly.

We will also be offering a CRAM class for English, Math, Science and Social Studies. This is solely for students who failed these classes with a 50% grade or higher this school year. Students attend starting June 12th and finish the material left from their previously failed class in order to reach the passing percentage. This is different from regular makeup classes in that they don’t have to complete the whole quarter’s worth of credit, just the missing requirements. Once students reach the passing threshold they are not required to attend class after they pass the class. We hope this will help a lot of our students!

3. Concurrent Enrollment

January 25th is the last day to register for UVU Concurrent Enrollment classes. Remember, if you are not admitted to UVU, that process can take up to 4 business days to process first before you can register for the class. Your student can earn their associates degree at CVHS and we offer more college classes than any other high school in the area.

We have over 73 classes! Please take advantage of this opportunity. This is basically the biggest scholarship opportunity! Each semester tuition of 12 credits cost approximately $5,000 with books and expenses. Even more if your child lives away from home. That’s a savings of $10,000 for every 24 credits earned at CVHS! Please visit with your counselor and learn all you can about Concurrent Enrollment!

4. PTC and Community Information Night

This event is for your entire family on February 22nd from 3:30 PM – 7 PM. Let your preschool up to high students explore and learn! Come meet with teachers about specific student needs. Meet with counselors for assistance with upcoming next year class registration. Sign up for a free mental health screener. Shop at Aviator Supply Co, Jet Fuel Soda Shack, visit colleges, tech schools and the military.

Here are some of the amazing organizations that will be here: Community Action Services, Utah Parent Center, Centro Hispano, Odyssey, Division of WorkForce Services, UVU Trio, Communities that Care, United Way, Stronger Families, CVHS ProStart, Internships, Concurrent Enrollment information, Food pantry assistance, etc.

These are some of the food trucks that will be here: Squatch Pizza, Fatty Tuna, Jurassic Tacos, Peruvian and Mexican Food Truck.

5. Sweethearts Dance!

The Sweethearts dance is coming up! The theme is Enchanted Forest. It is a semi-formal dance on Feb. 11th from 8-11 PM. A couples ticket is $20 until February 6th, then the price goes up to $25 so ask your date now! Single tickets are also available for $12 until Feb. 11th then will go up to $15.

7. UHED – Utah Higher Education Day

This afternoon Juniors will be attending sessions with colleges. Attendance will be taken, but your student may be marked absent originally as it will take our attendance office a few days to update.

8. Walking at Graduation

The Utah Board of Education has voted to uphold the pre-pandemic standards that students must complete ALL graduation requirements to “walk” at graduation. Graduation will be held this year on May 25th. All required credits must be completed by May 19th. Check missing credits by going to Skyward and on the far left click on graduation requirements.

3. GPA/ ACT Scholarships

Many universities offer automatic scholarships (as well as admission standards) based on a combination of GPA and SAT/ACT score. New student scholarships are awarded based on the cumulative unweighted GPA or ACT/SAT score. Students are automatically considered for scholarships when the admissions application is complete before the deadline. There are a limited number of President’s scholarships that will be awarded after a comprehensive review.

2. ACT Prep

The ACT is one of two main tests that many colleges require for admissions. How well your child scores can have an impact on what colleges they are eligible to attend and what degree programs students qualify for. Almost half of students decide to retest on the ACT because they aren’t happy with their initial scores. This is stressful and costs money. Our ACT prep course is one way to increase your child’s chances of a better score.

ACT Prep classes will begin Jan 9th from 2:30-3:30. Every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday in D257. Pay $25 to the finance office. If you have any questions please contact Mr. Cameron Christensen in D161. This is a great opportunity for all Juniors to prepare for the ACT March 7th.

We also offer an online class for ACT Prep. If you are interested, please contact [email protected] for more information. SHMOOP is also available to assist with ACT prep. Just go to shmoop.com/utah and use the code ASPEN.

In addition to this protocol, we have faculty that will be participating in research-based threat assessment training. Safety begins and ends with all of us.

December 5, 2022

Dear Aviators,

I woke up this morning to five inches of snow! It’s a reminder that we are entering the last half of the school year. We are all also ready for a mid year break and I am sure everyone is ready for the holidays. With that being said, please go into Skyward and see if you can help your student get in their assignments so they will pass their classes.It’s the last 11 days to push!

Please make note of the following:

1. Class Change Deadline

It’s hard to believe we are almost to our 2nd Semester. We have loved working with your students. Please be aware that we will only be accepting class change requests for the 2nd Semester through December 15th. If you need to make changes please meet with your counselor ASAP.

2. UVU Admission and Registration!

Concurrent Enrollment is now open for 2nd semester for face to face and live interactive courses. If you (your student) are registered at Cedar Valley High School to take a UVU concurrent enrollment face to face or live interactive class it’s time to get admitted and registered at UVU. If your ACT score is not high enough for the course you may take the Accuplacer test for English and/or the Aleks test for math at UVU.

I wish I would have pushed my children to earn their associates degree during high school! It’s almost like earning $40,000 over the next two years after textbook, the cost of living, taxes and tuition! Our school had more students earn their associates and gen education certificates than any other high school that feeds into UVU. Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity for your child and meet with your counselor.

Registration Process – Go to www.uvu.edu/concurrent

1- Apply for admissions (Step 1), unless you already have a UVID.

2- Registration: My.UVU.edu

A-Know prerequisites

B- Find course CRN – on website or attached to this email

Char Christensen [email protected] in Room D230 @ CVHS.

3. Get Your Associate’s Degree in Aviation Science From UVU at CV!

Starting next school year, we will be offering an associates degree in Aviation Science on campus! Why would you not do that? Once a student has that degree, all he/she has to do is go to UVU and take their flying lessons. All the foundational components will be completed at CV speeding up the process to become a commercial pilot. Flying is the fun part! Our student could be earning $$$$ in a couple short years and big $$$ in a few years after that.

There is a pilot shortage and girls especially are needed as well! This will cut your costs down significantly to become a commercial pilot!

4. Finance Office

The financial office will be closed this Wednesday, however; My School Fees will still be open to pay fees.

5. Text option for messages from the school

Dear Aviators,

Good evening Aviators!

I hope you enjoyed that extra hour of sleep! We all needed that! Please make note of the following:

1. Election Day

Tomorrow is election day Tuesday. Please remember to vote!

2. Thank You For Your Support

I am beyond thankful for our community that stood behind our school and students that were falsely accused of the Tik Tok incident. All of the teachers, staff, and administration feel so supported by you. Thank you for the treats and beautiful letters, and flowers that were delivered to our school. Thank you for all chipping in for the food truck to feed our faculty and staff this Friday. We feel the CVHS love!

With that said, a few of you have asked to see my statement that was released to the press:

Heartbreaking is the best way to describe November 1, 2022. Students at Cedar Valley High School were accused of dressing in racist costumes at a Walmart 235 miles away from our community. (For reference, the distance between NYC and Washington, D.C. is 226 miles.)

What has been devastating is the continuing impact. Even though these students were not involved (they were at work or with family), they continue to be targeted by uninformed individuals on social media. My heart aches for these students and their families. Can you imagine having your life turned upside down because your name and personal information were put out on social media being falsely accused of something?

As a school, we received and continue to hear from people accusing these individuals. With more than 1,500 phone messages and more than 3,000 emails, our communications systems became overwhelmed. How do I decipher school-related emails versus hate-filled messages geared at our school, students, and families? It’s going to take some time to wade through.

Social media and uniformed, vindictive people have essentially made an enormous error just by sharing and commenting on misinformation. The impact of these blunders will have lasting effects on these students. Hatred and intolerance are wrong in all forms.
