On behalf of the CVHS PTO, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all new friends and families joining our school. We are excited to have you join us and look forward to working together to make CVHS a great place to learn and grow. 

For our current members, I want to remind you of the many upcoming events and activities happening in the coming weeks. As always, you can stay up-to-date with all the latest news and information by visiting our website: vanguardian.org. Here are the important upcoming events for the month of April.
