FALL DRAMA TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

Get your tickets now for CVHS's Fall Drama: Radium Girls. The show traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. As the case goes on, however, Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium Corporation, but with her own family and friends who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire.

Performances are scheduled for Friday, Nov. 19 through Sunday, Nov. 21. For more information and to purchase your tickets, click the button below!

 

PHOTO OF THE WEEK

On Wednesday morning, CVHS recognized two student-athletes who have signed National Letters of Intent: Delainey Varela-Keen will play soccer at Division I University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and Lillian Buckwalter has committed to playing field hockey at Division I University of Maryland.

These student-athletes have received an athletic scholarship from a Division I or Division II college or university.

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.
