Thanksgiving Feast

Our annual Thanksgiving Feast is just around the corner on November 16th.  This opportunity is for the students and staff to dine together as a community.  Parents have graciously volunteered food items as well as their time to make this event a success. 

Mural for CIVA

The arts are thriving inside CIVA.  The fall play is about to start, students are qualifying for state-level honors choir, the showcase went very well.  Yet, we have realized that the outside of our building does not express our passion for the arts like it should.  We are therefore going to paint a fresco on the south side of the building and maybe more if we can.  We have already selected a muralist that will work with our students to create the mural and have already started fundraising. 

To ensure we have all we need we are asking our parent and alumni community to donate to the mural fund.  We aim to start on it as soon as the weather permits.  If you would like to donate to the cause please contact Mrs. Barnes in the front office to make a donation.  We thank you in advance for your support!!
