Dear CVPS Families,

I want to thank you for the opportunity to work with your wonderful children for the past few months. It has been pure joy watching our amazing children learn and grow daily. CVPS is also fortunate to have a "Rock Star" staff that has a genuine passion and love for teaching and working with kids. It made my heart happy every day to witness this. A special "shout out" and thanks go to the office staff at the Primary School who seriously work miracles daily! My last day will be Friday, Nov. 11, it's been great! I leave you in good hands. Thanks a million for all you do! CVPS will always have a piece of my heart.  

Before I leave, one of my dogs, Zack, a Bearded Collie, will be visiting the Primary School on November 11. Zack is a reading therapy dog and he has visited schools with me in the past. He is visiting the PS as some students won story time with Zack from the PTG raffle at Open House. As always, thanks for your support of CVPS. It's always a great day to be a Colt!
