THANKSGIVING EDITION

On Tuesday, students in Mrs. Bradley's sixth-grade students at Leola opted to enjoy their holiday meal together as a "class family" in their room. There was even a "fire" burning to make for a cozy atmosphere!

 

THIS WEEKEND!

Get your tickets now for CVHS's Fall Drama: Radium Girls. Performances are scheduled for this Friday, Nov. 19 through Sunday, Nov. 21. For more information and to purchase your tickets, click the button below!

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.

 
 

GIVE TOMORROW!

TOMORROW is the annual Extraordinary Give - Lancaster County's largest day of giving! The Conestoga Valley Education Foundation (CVEF) is one of the organizations to which you can donate that day. CVEF helps shape our community's future, one program at a time, and encourages exploration and achievement that would not be possible within the district's regular budget.

COMMUNITY BULLETIN BOARD

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.
