CIVA Documentary

The Colorado Department of Education just released the documentary they made about CIVA in a series they call ‘Stories of Promising Practices.’ The series features innovative schools that are doing unique things to help students achieve. To date, CIVA is the only school in the Pikes Peak area to be honored with this recognition. This acknowledgement is a direct result of the outstanding job our teachers are doing with creating engaging and memorable lessons, as well as the students who work hard to do their best every day.

Chili Cook Off

We will be having our 1st Annual Chili Cook-off on Friday, October 13th at 5:00 p.m.  Students, Families and Faculty are all encouraged to participate. This will be a great, fun way to get to know each other better and any proceeds will go toward more fun events. All CIVA families are invited to come sample the chili $10 per family of 4, $1 extra per person after 4 people. Our Fall Concert will follow in the auditorium at 7:00 p.m. We look forward to seeing everyone. 
Yes, the Chili will be judged for Mild, Medium, Hot and best overall. Chili will need to be at the school no later than 4:45 for judging  (judges to be determined). Volunteers for setup and clean up are greatly appreciated.  Email Shirley Sharp at with questions, to volunteer and to sign up to bring chili!
