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.

Calling all five-year-olds

marching kidsKindergarten in Longview Public Schools is the springboard for a student’s successful learning career.

Families with children who turn five years old before Sept. 1, 2018, are encouraged to sign their child up now for school next fall. Each school has approximately 60 kindergarten spots open on a first-come-first-served basis. Early registration helps make sure that children attend their own neighborhood school. If one school fills, students are referred to a different Longview school. Registration opened March 1.

Registration can be done online 24/7 through the Skyward Family Access system. Families with no other children in school or those who have not set up a Family Access online account first click on the “new student enrollment account request.” After the account is set up, go to “new student enrollment.”

Families who already have a Skyward Family Access account or those who received a temporary password after setting up the account use the “new student enrollment” button. Online registration is not mobile phone compatible, but a computer is available at schools for this use, and there is one in the administration building at 2715 Lilac Street.

To complete the registration, families need the child’s birth certificate; a shot (immunization) record; and a utility bill, rental agreement, or mortgage statement showing the family’s address.

Although the school year begins on August 29, kindergartners are eased into the new routine though a special “Smart Start.” Each kindergartener will visit school just once Aug. 29, 30, or 31 so the school can learn about his or her skills and abilities. Then, all students attend school for half-days the week of Sept. 4, 5, 6, and 7 to introduce them to their school careers.

All our kindergarten teachers look forward to meeting our awesome new kindergartners!

New Student Enrollment Account Request
For parents/guardians who are new to Longview School District and do not have a Skyward Family Access account.
New Student Enrollment
For parents/guardians with an existing or temporary Skyward Family Access account.
Please note that this process is not mobile phone compatible.
