SADD's Mock Car Crash
CVHS Chapter of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) is sending a hard-hitting reminder to students and parents of the dangers and consequences of unsafe driving behaviors — such as drinking and driving, driving while distracted, driving at unsafe speeds, and not buckling up — prior to prom and the end of the 2021 school year. The mock crash scene uses a real crashed vehicle set up on the HS school grounds as a daily reminder to act responsibly.  SADD is using the event to remind parents/guardians about the importance of on-going conversation with their children to reinforce teen driving laws, and to set their own family driving rules to protect them from being injured or killed in a crash.

Kennywood Picnic
The Chartiers Valley Kennywood picnic day is scheduled for June 11. FunDay tickets are $29.00. Tickets can be used throughout the summer, not only on June 11. Visit kennywood.com/chartiersvalley to purchase.
CVHS Principals
Sincerely,

Mr. Patrick Myers, Principal
Mr. Tim Murray, Assistant Principal
