The meeting will be livestreamed.

 

PHOTO OF THE WEEK

Even at 8 a.m. the sun was still barely visible over CV's new turf fields. The dense fog caused some bus delays this morning - thank you everyone for your patience!

COVID-19 UPDATE CENTER

We were optimistic the COVID News Update Center would be a thing of the past by the time this school year started. Unfortunately, there is still a need to maintain and update the News Update Center for the foreseeable future.

The Update Center was created in the spring of 2020 when the virus first affected our area. Our COVID dashboard will again be updated each school day in the late afternoon or evening.

In addition, the Update Center has a plethora of resources and information, including letters from Dr. Zuilkoski, learning resources, and more.

Conestoga Valley's online bulletin board is designed to assist community nonprofit groups in the CV area to communicate important information in an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective way. Throughout the school year, we'll highlight new announcements, registration information, and more in this newsletter.

This week, new flyers were posted for Linden Hall's Summer Camps and Viktor Yeliohin International Ballet Academy's The Nutcracker.

THE POWER OF BREAKFAST

Did you know that this is National School Breakfast Week? And did you know that students who eat breakfast are more likely to:

- Reach higher levels of achievement in reading and math

  • Score higher on standardized tests
  • Have better concentration and memory
  • Be more alert and maintain a healthy weight

Whether you grab a school breakfast (breakfasts AND lunches are free for all students this year!) or eat breakfast at home, make sure you're fueling up for your day!
