The 8th grade students recently went on their career field trip. They visited 3 locations to learn about options for their future as they get ready to start high school. They visited the Missouri National Guard Armory, Missouri Western State University, and Buchanan County EMS. Pictures of all of the excitement can be found at cvmsupdate.weebly.com.
We are excited to share our new student created mural in the commons. The Student-Leadership Environment Team and Advanced Art students painted the mural along with teachers. The design was created by Advanced Art students. The students and staff put in time on the weekend and during art class to complete this amazing piece of art!! Pictures of the process and final product can be found at cvmsupdate.weebly.com.
