On Friday, May 10, the Aces for Aiden Foundation is sponsoring an assembly for CVMS students. We are so excited to have Terry DaVolt talk to our students!!! His presentation will be attention grabbing and engaging for the students. The assembly will focus on bullying. Please click here for information. Because this is a sensitive topic, if you choose for your student to not attend the assembly, please contact the front office at 816.882.1041.

MAP is right around the corner!!  CVMS students have worked diligently throughout the school year. The time has come for them to demonstrate their growth through the MAP test. Students can bring a clear water bottle filled with water to their testing rooms. They should leave their phones either at home or in their locker, as they are not permitted in the classroom. Here are some suggestions that can be done at home to help students feel confident while testing:

  • Get a good night’s sleep
  • Eat a healthy breakfast
  • Get physical exercise
  • Think positive
  • Give positive reinforcement

I know this has been shared three or four times before, but it never hurts to share it again. Below is our MAP testing schedule.  If your child has a planned absence during this time, please contact Counselor McDaniel to make arrangements for testing at

  • May 8 & 9-Science (8th Grade ONLY)
  • May 10 & 13-Algebra 1 EOC (8th Grade Algebra 1 Students ONLY)
  • May 14-ELA (8th Grade ONLY)
  • May 15-ELA (ALL Students)
  • May 16-ELA (ALL Students)
  • May 17-ELA (8th Grade ONLY)
  • May 20 & 21-Math (ALL Students, except Algebra 1)

During testing, teachers will be handing out tickets for positive attitude, effort, and following directions. Drawings will be held daily at lunch for prizes! We will also have a celebration for students who show positive attitude and effort during testing on Tuesday May 28th. We will have activities outside including kickball, football, volleyball, and hanging out with friends. Each grade level will spend part of their day outside!

In the Fall, when we return to school, we will have a celebration for students who have worked hard in the classroom all year on their academics and are able to score Proficient or Advanced in each subject area.  Once scores are received, students and parents will be notified of student performance and the celebration.

8th Grade Recognition night will be on May 30th at 6:30 pm in the CHS gym.  Please click here for details.
