 CVHS Job Fair Seeks Business Partners

Centreville High School is hosting the 3rd annual Job Fair for students on Friday, March 20 from 11:17am – 1:20pm during all lunch periods. The event will take place in the library and students in all grades will be encouraged to stop by to learn about opportunities for summer employment, internships, and full-time positions.

The Job Fair is highly popular among students and considered a successful recruiting tool for the businesses who participate. Each business will have its own table and be able to hand out materials, take applications, talk directly to students, and even make offers on the spot! Snacks and water will be provided to representatives.

If you would like to participate, please fill out this form by Friday, March 13: https://forms.gle/GpR89DA59QWG3uBh9. Thank you for your partnership!

Volunteer Hours Deadline for Seniors

Attention seniors: Wednesday, April 22, 2020 is the deadline for submitting volunteer hours in X2VOL and cleaning up any issues relating to hours claimed. Remember that you need 40 verified service hours over a 4-year period to earn a black service learning cord for graduation. Cords will be handed out at graduation practice at no cost. To receive the Virginia State Civic Service diploma seal, you need 50 hours of verified service as part of a larger award criteria that includes grades, attendance and overall behavior.

If you have submitted service hours but they have not been approved, it may be because the adult point of contact has not verified your hours. The hours MUST be verified by the adult supervisor (not a parent and not a student) before they will be approved. When volunteering, please tell your adult contact to verify your hours when they receive the email. If you have questions, please see Mrs. Armstrong in the 3rd floor subschool.

Student-Parent Survey for Federal Impact AID 

Beginning on October 22, FCPS will be asking all families to fill out a Student-Parent Survey for Federal Impact Aid. Returning this form is important because information from this survey results in an anticipated $3 million dollars in grant funds each year from the U.S. Department of Education. These funds are used to support all Fairfax County public schools and centers. For each school-aged child in your household, please complete, sign, date, and return the survey to your child's school. If sections 1 and 2 of the survey do not apply to you, just check the box in Section 3.  All forms must be signed, dated, and returned by October 30. All results are CONFIDENTIAL.

A Note From The Principal

Wildcat families,

Last week was my first homecoming week at Centreville High School, and I was so impressed with the energy and excitement of our students and the community.  Students and staff were engaged in fun activities all throughout the week, and Wildcat spirit was clearly evident. We are fortunate to have amazing students, a caring faculty and staff, and a supportive community all coming together to create a vibrant culture at CVHS.  

At CVHS, we remain committed to ensuring high quality classroom instruction and a positive caring school culture.  Teachers have been focused on student engagement and the implementation of FCPSOn laptops in the classroom to enhance the learning experience for students.  Teachers are collaborating regularly and discussing instructional practices to best meet the needs of our students. We are deepening our implementation of social emotional learning and the RULER program, and we are sharing our positive school-wide expectations of Respect, Ownership, Achievement, and Relationships (ROAR) through ongoing advisory lessons.  While there are always aspects of school that require our attention and continuous improvement, last week’s homecoming celebration was an opportunity to celebrate the wonderful school culture we have at CVHS.

I am fortunate and proud to be part of this great school.  I look forward to our continued work together to achieve great things for our students.  Be sure to say hello at upcoming events and reach out should you have any questions or concerns.  Go Wildcats!

Chad Lehman

Principal
