Dear CVES families & community,
Wow, how time flies this year! We have already made it to the start of the 4th quarter marking period. As report cards go home, please contact your child’s teacher for any questions or updates.
We have had a fun filled month this April with Spirit week, Autism Awareness Month activities and luncheon, Art & Music presentations and more.
In the months to come many classes may be participating in field trips so watch for notes. Our student art will be displayed in Plattsburgh locations and classes will be participating in walks to see the art. More information to come!

It has been a busy school year, and the final quarter is ahead of us. In spite of stubborn snowfall, Spring is not far away.
Our students have enjoyed a variety of activities throughout the winter, including swimming at Moriah, bowling at the local bowling alley, and snowshoeing! We are fortunate to have been able to purchase snowshoes for our students through a generous donation from the Colette Bonelli fund last year, and our high school students especially have appreciated the experience. There will be more swimming and bowling opportunities ahead, but we are hopeful that snowshoeing is finished for this school year!
The holidays were festive here on the Mineville campus, as you can see Santa paid a visit and the students sang songs and enjoyed hot chocolate in their PJs! Our awesome staff here in Mineville make sure that Santa’s sack is full, and that all the students receive a Christmas gift.
More recently, our students participated in a week of Winter Carnival activities here at school. The events included making snow sculptures, snowshoe races, an obstacle course, various indoor races, making ice cream in a bag, carnival games, including Pie in the Face, and group luncheon. The staff worked together and the week was a nice break from the winter doldrums.
Many of our students participated in New York State ELA testing last week, and the high school students are preparing for their regents. While such assessments can be a challenge, those that participated were cooperative and did their best to demonstrate what they have learned. The results will be available toward the end of the school year.
Our PBIS team has had monthly “character trait” presentations to help students learn more about social skills, goal setting and other life skills.
I hope you always feel welcome here at Mineville, please call anytime you would like to come in to speak to us or visit! Thanks for your support.
