CVHS PTSA PRESENTATION FOR PARENTS
 
Capo Valley is excited to have Youth and Family Expert, Jim Burns, speak on Minimizing Teen Risks. Following the tragic car accident, along with continued Driver Safety Training, we felt the need to help parents be more present in their teens’ lives and give them tools to help their teens make better choices. The event is Wednesday, November 19th at 6:30 p.m. in the CVHS Theater.  See the attached flyer.
 
MILITARY HOLIDAY TOY DRIVE
 
Please join the student PTSA in collecting new unwrapped toys for active military families this holiday season.  Bring all toys (ages new born to 18 years old) to the front office. There will be a collection box there until December 5th.

YMCA IS LOCATED RIGHT ON CAMPUS FOR BEFORE AND AFTERSCHOOL CARE!
 
Open for school breaks: The YMCA is open for full days for most school breaks from 7am-6pm! We are planning some great activities and field trips for Thanksgiving and Winter breaks. Weekly and Drop-in enrollment is available.
 
Teen Leadership: The Teen Leadership Club is comprised of teens in the YMCA program who want to design a better YMCA that will continue to be the place where teens want to go. The TLC team helps plan events, daily activities, and service learning projects. The TLC team also gives input on monthly snack, supplies, games, and electronic purchases. This is a great opportunity for your student to learn and practice leadership skills.

STUDENTS - PLEASE OBEY TRAFFIC LAWS ON PASEO DE COLINAS
 
Many students have been observed after school at or near the Colinas crosswalk (at Del Cerro) engaging in unsafe practices.  There have been students observed dashing across the street in areas where there is no crosswalk, or cutting corners in traffic at the crosswalk itself.  THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, ESPECIALLY ON A STREET WHERE CARS TRAVEL AT FAST SPEEDS AND COME FROM DOWN THE HILL AND AROUND THE CORNER! If your child exits or enters school from the Colinas area, please stress to them how important it is to use the crosswalk and only cross when the signal is green, indicating it is safe to cross.  Students who do not follow this direction will be given a consequence.
