New this year – Progress Reports
Starting this school year, CVCA parents and students will receive a student “progress report” at the midpoint of each academic quarter. Unlike an official report card, a progress report reflects an informal but fully accurate and up-to-date “grade” for each student‘s classes at the halfway point of an academic quarter. This report is meant to provide timely and useful communication to parents about their students’ learning progress in order to foster a dynamic partnership between families and teachers as they support each student’s academic growth. The first such progress report will arrive by email on Wednesday, September 14.
Career Window – September 13
Our first Career Window presentation of the year is on Tuesday, September 13. Come hear Officer Bill share about his career and experiences as a police officer. Have questions about this line of work? Bring your lunch and join us during both lunch periods in the SOBE Room (109) located in the Learning Commons.

MIDDLE SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENTS
Welcome our New Middle school Ministry coordinator
Meet Dwayne Reed, our new Middle School Ministry Coordinator and Bible Teacher. A 2017 CVCA alum, Dwayne has a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies from Grace College and Seminary where he is also currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Local Church Ministries. For the past year and a half, Dwayne has been an on-staff resident with Grace Church’s Bath Campus serving in the High School Ministry.
A fun fact about Dwayne – he served as the mascot for the Rubber Ducks!
Dwayne shared: “I’ve had the burden and calling on my life to do ministry since I made the decision to follow Jesus. He has gifted me with the ability to understand people and to walk people through the highs and lows of life. He has put a burden on my heart to communicate His Word to others in a way that makes sense to all generations. I have committed my life to this in whatever way it shows itself.”
