Born to Fly – 2022-23 School Theme
January 23, 2023
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.

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. Once there you will see a column titled Remaining. Whatever is listed in red is what is still outstanding.
