Meet your Principal

The mission of Columbia Valley Gardens Elementary is to ensure that every student learns the skills, attitudes, and knowledge to become a responsible citizen in a rapidly changing society.
We believe CVG is an educational community to which all adults and students belong. As a community, we work to respect, accept and celebrate each others’ differences. All community members work to interact positively with each other and each strives to do his or her personal best.

Principal update

December 2018 principal update

CVG Suns are counting down the last days of 2018, but there is still a lot of learning happening in classrooms. The fall testing season is complete, and intervention groups are up and running to address the needs of all students.

Congratulations to our November Citizens of the Month for achievement in math and the character trait assertiveness.

CVG’s Chess Club for students in grades 3-5 is meeting Mondays 3:30-4pm in the library. Chess Club will continue until winter break – but stay tuned for new opportunities coming in the new year!

Mark your calendar for our winter concert on December 14, 2018. Performances will be at 9:30am and 1:30pm. Students in grades 3 – 5 will be participating and have been working hard with Ms. Garoutte, our music specialist, to give families a great concert.

Students will be released on December 21 at 1:15pm to begin their winter break. School will resume on January 2, 2019, and we will have our usual Wednesday 2:15pm early release.

In the new year, students will hit the ground running and be completing the second round of iReady testing during the month of January.

We wish all of our families a restful break, and we look forward to seeing our students when school resumes.
