Welcome Back 2013 Letter


Welcome to the 2013-14 school year at CVHS!

I would like to welcome each of you to the Home of the Falcons for the upcoming school year.  We look forward to an exciting and successful year.  We especially would like to welcome the Class of 2017 to Canyon View and look forward to four great years with you.

We would like to make you aware of some great additions to our staff as well as a couple of changes.  Mandy Wood and Kylie Findley have joined our math department. Robby Robinson is our new PE teacher and Head Football Coach. In the front office, Shelly Goodwin has taken over as our Office Manager, Joyce Edwards as our Registrar and Vicki Christian as our Attendance Secretary. Our S.R.O., Isaac Askeroth, will be teaching the Intro to Law Enforcement classes.

Canyon View continues to be recognized regionally and statewide for excellence. We look to continue to build on that tradition this year through increased effort among our staff to work collaboratively. In addition we will be fully implementing our College and Career Readiness Model (CCR) across all grade levels. This will be a tremendous advantage to students to get them a head start on being prepared for the “next step” in their lives.

CVHS information is now available as an app for your smart phones, iPods, iPads and Android based devices.  The app is a great source of information, especially when you are on the go. Search the Android Marketplace and Apple App Store for the app by typing in “Canyon View High School.” It is a free download. News, calendars, videos, photos, tweets and much more are available through the CVHS App.

Follow us on Twitter with our two different accounts: @canyonviewhigh and @cvhs_news . The @canyonviewhigh has been used for two years now and is designed for all the activities, news, sports, scores and updates that most students would want to know (and many parents as well). The @cvhs_news account is new and is designed for those parents that only want info in the event of an emergency such as school closure, evacuation, and so forth.

Please join the PTSA.  They are a tremendous asset to the students and staff at CVHS!  A table will be set up at registration where students, parents and staff members may join.  You may also mail in the PTSA registration if you choose to do mail-in registration this year.

Students received their schedules in May and we will be printing one more copy of the schedule for them to be handed out the week of registration.  Class changes have already taken place.  If there is a need for a schedule change due to an error on the part of CVHS, that can be accommodated by the counselors the first week of school.  Schedule changes for any reason other than an error in graduation progress or the wrong level of a class (such as Calculus instead of Pre-Calculus) will not be made as we need to get a handle on current class loads and maintain balance between courses.  You may now view schedules in PowerSchool.  The PowerSchool address is http://ps.irondistrict.org. 

We encourage you to use the mail in registration and online payment system if you are able. On-Site Registration will take place August 12 – 14.  The main office will be staffed beginning August 5th. If there are multiple CV students in a household and you would like to register them all at once please feel free to bring them at any of the available times.  Please be prepared to pay your school fees.  See the enclosed school fee form for information on fees.  Online payments are now available for all school fees – see enclosed information and CVHS Website for instructions.
