PHOTO OF THE WEEK

Last Friday, Brownstown's sixth graders hosted their version of Shark Tank! Groups of students presented their product ideas to a panel of judges in hopes of getting financial backing for their products. So much creativity!

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.

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. Last week, information on Cub Scout Pack 92 (Smoketown) was added!

The annual Craft Show is back this year! The Craft Show will be held on Saturday, Nov. 13, from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. in Rill Gymnasium at CVHS. All questions can be directed here.

 

STUDENT WELLNESS COMMITTEE SEEKING MEMBERS

Attention CV community! Conestoga Valley's Student Wellness Committee is actively seeking new members. 

The School Board is committed to providing a school environment that promotes student wellness, proper nutrition, nutrition education, and regular physical activity as part of the total learning experience. The Student Wellness Committee works to enhance that mission within the district.

As per board policy, the committee is open to individuals within the district and community. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact:

Teresa Drager, Committee Co-Chair, or Adele Huntzinger, Committee Co-Chair.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS

It's hard to believe, but it's time to start thinking about the annual Extraordinary Give - Lancaster County's largest day of giving! This year, the event will take place on Friday, November 19. The Conestoga Valley Education Foundation is one of the organizations to which you can donate that day.

 

BE ON THE LOOKOUT

Over the next few days, CV students will be coming home with a packet from Penn Medicine/LGH about its Health-e Student Connect program (CVHS students should have already received this packet). All district nurses are aware that this information is being sent home. The program is optional and the paperwork your student brings home contains all the information you will need.


Should you have any questions, however, please do not hesitate to reach out to your building nurse!
