Service Learning Information

 

We want to make sure you have up-to-date information about service learning.  We have posted information on the CVHS website at this link regarding FCPS Service Learning and x2VOL.  CVHS must be in alignment with these policies. A few highlights include:

  • The purpose of service learning is to involve students in authentic, intentional, and impactful acts of volunteerism in their communities.
    • Students need a minimum of 40 approved hours to earn the service cord and 50 hours toward the civics seal.
  • The Class of 2021 is required to submit verified service learning hours in x2VOL by April 21 to receive the service cord. This means approved by an adult from the sponsoring organization (NOT a parent). Please do not wait until the last day.
  • The student reflection matters! Please be thoughtful in describing what you learned and how it met a community need.
  • If several weeks or months have gone by without verification, please gently reach out to that contact person to follow up. It is up to you to check your account.
  • Review the Q&A carefully – ie. students can count Honor Society or Scouting volunteer hours toward x2VOL goals. However, attendance at a meeting, the act of donating goods, and travel time to an event does not qualify as service learning.

If you have any questions, please contact CVHS x2VOL Administrators – Mrs. Stamper (kastamper@fcps.edu) or Mrs. Heatwole (asheatwole@fcps.edu).  Thank you!

We are looking for pictures to add to the yearbook. If you have any you'd like to share, please email them to cvhsyearbook21@gmail.com. We are happy to take any pictures you have of CVHS students, but we are specifically looking for the following:

  • Work From Home Setup: Pictures of students' work from home spot (bonus if the student is in the picture and working!)
  • Class of 2021 Growing Up: We are looking to feature current seniors over the years. Examples would be group pictures of the first day of freshman year, the orchestra concert in 7th grade, or celebrations from elementary school. Group pictures are preferred, but we will also take pictures of individuals. 

We are also looking for students to feature for our Student Spotlight section this year! If your child has a hobby, sport, or activity they are passionate about and want to share, please email us their name and grade at cvhsyearbook21@gmail.com, and we may reach out to them for a feature! Examples include students who love to cook, have a youtube channel, are passionate about their sport, are involved in a unique extracurricular, etc. 

Please send any questions to Nadine Taylor at nktaylor@fcps.edu. Thank you for your help in making this year's yearbook a success!

Orchestra Performances

The Centreville High School Orchestras are honoring the frontline workers with thank you messages and a virtual performance.  The videos below are dedicated to CVHS teachers from students in our orchestras. Please feel free to watch the videos and share the links.

Since the beginning of the year, the students in the video have been thinking about performing with staff in mind.  We understand that learning and making music would not have been possible for us without the sacrifices you have made to help keep our community going.  Thank you from the CVHS Orchestras!

Winter Sports Tryouts & New Student Online Registration System

FCPS activities and athletic programs have transitioned to a new online student registration system.  This new system offers a host of benefits for schools and community members including:

  • One stop shop for registering your student for athletic programs and many common activities occurring throughout the school year
  • Electronic submission of the emergency care card and weight room waiver- only have to fill these out once!
  • A new home for the state-mandated concussion education program

Each family will create an account and from this account, can register their student(s) for various activity and athletic opportunities.  While registering does not guarantee a spot on the team, this information will help to ensure your student is ready to go on the first day of tryouts.  Students can be registered for one or more activities throughout the year and families can sign in as needed to update information. 

Please note the following:

  • If your child would like to try out for a winter sport - it is required that you get them registered on our new site as soon as possible.  Tryouts will begin for basketball on 12/07 and the remaining winter sports will begin on 12/14.
  • You will still need to submit a valid VHSL Pre-participation Exam Form (physical) directly to the school prior to your student’s participation; all other requirements will be completed through this registration process.
  • Families who have already submitted their concussion education verification form will be asked to verify completion again as part of the registration process.  We do apologize for any inconvenience- please bear with us as we make this change.

The new registration site is available here: https://centreville-ar.rschooltoday.com/ 

Here is the step by step guide to registration for parents: https://www.training.rschooltoday.com/sites/training.rschooltoday.com/files/files/Jacob/AR%20Parent%20QSG%20%202018.pdf
