Hello Colt Families,

The weather looks incredible this week, and that's certainly a perfect way to officially welcome spring! One of our favorite activities during the spring at the middle school is the 7th-grade "Ducklings Project." Thanks to a grant, Mrs. Whitaker's and Mr. Caplan's students will be involved in a very exciting duck hatching project. Stay tuned for more details coming up soon.

Third marking period grades can be accessed by logging into Infinite Campus. Final grades will be posted by the end of the week. If you would like to receive a paper copy of your child's report card, please email jmodelo@cvsd.net.

Plans are in the works for the 8th grade Recognition and our PTSG is looking for photos of Class of 2025 students to include in a video. Please see the following flyer for more details: 8th Grade Video Flyer

CVMS has a really fun week ahead including Spirit Week and the "Colt Challenge" games during Colt Time. We encourage everyone to participate and hope that the students enjoy the activities that are planned. The Spirit Week days are themed as:

Tuesday- Tie Dye Tuesday
Wednesday- Tacky Tourist Day
Thursday- Decades Day
Friday- Pajama Day

The Scholastic Virtual Book Fair is now LIVE! This is a great way to stock up on some summer reading while helping to support the CVMS PTG. Click here to be directed to the shopping link.


Make it a great day,

Dr. Michele Welter, Principal
Mr. Dan Knause, Assistant Principal
