2016-2017 SLVUSD District Calendar
Time to get ready and get your groove on....this year is going to super fantastic!
Monday, September 5 - holiday - no school
| OUTSIDE READING ASSIGNMENT|
All CRHS students are required to participate in our
outside reading assignments throughout the school year.
These assignments are over and beyond any
academic class required reading. Lots of reading lends
itself to further developing a teens brain.
"Strength in Pages!"
Why? Teen readers develop through reading, finely-tuned brains and improve their minds both psychologically and cognitively. Reading, overtime, will strengthen the teens attention span and increase higher-levels of vocabulary use in everyday life, improves their memory and reduces stress!
Students are required to read a minimum of 1100, 1200, 1300 up to 1500 pages over the
course of the school year. Now is the time to get started and log pages and hours.

SLV/CRHS HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TOOK A TRIP TO COSTA RICA THIS SUMMER

You may wish to enhance your math supplies with a good graphing calculator. You'll use this in future math courses at the higher levels and in college so we recommend spending $$$ on this item.

DUE TO LAST MINUTE CANCELLATIONS, YOUR STUDENT'S PLACE IN CLASS WILL NOT BE HELD UNTIL A DEPOSIT IS RECEIVED.
POWERSCHOOL ANNUAL REGISTRATION
Families of 9th - 11th grade students should have received an email from Gail Heagerty, our Student Information System and Database Specialist, with instructions for completing the annual student registration through their Parent Portal in PowerSchool.
If you have not received these instructions, or have questions about completing the online registration, our systems specialists will be available to assist you at our Orientation on Friday August 19 (11/12th grade families) and Monday, August 22 (9/10th grade families). Students will also receive assistance setting up their school emails and Power School access during Orientation.
Earlier submission of FAFSA!
Students attending college after July 1, 2017 will be able to file a FAFSA as early as October 1, 2016 rather than on January 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.
Students will also report income information from an earlier tax year. For example, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information if they are attending college from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018

Best of luck to all of you and please keep in touch!
The SLV Education Foundation is an active 501c3 non-profit organization in need of revitalization, new energy and new leadership.
Serving all SLV students primarily through various community and fundraising efforts, the Foundation has in the past helped fund such student
programs as class-size reduction. The Foundation is now looking for volunteer leaders interested in finding ways to help improve and fund classroom improvement, teacher assistance and after-school/summer activity programs; and even a program to ensure that all students are provided technology and instruction on its use as a part of their education.
If you or someone you know are energetic, hard-working, and committed to the idea that our students deserve the absolute best opportunity to excel that our community can provide, then please consider joining as a leader of the SLV Education Foundation.
Questions – contact George Wylie, 338-0578 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In response to students and members of our community who are highly allergic to fragrances and scents, the
SLVUSD Board of Trustees adopted a California School Board Association policy to make all district
classrooms and offices fragrant neutral. CRHS has parents and/or students with
respiratory issues who can have negative reactions to fragrances.
