There are no fees for PTO membership. However, Friends and Family monetary donations are appreciated and accepted year-round. This is the primary fundraiser for the PTO. Please visit our Friends and Family Campaign web page for more information, and to donate. Your support helps fund much-needed supplies and expenses for our school and children! The funds raised through Friends and Family are used to support a variety of student and faculty activities, including Fish Camp, Senior Awards, improvements to our beautiful campus and its facilities, teacher needs, etc. Our goal is 100% participation this year, so no matter how large or small your donation may be, we will put your money to good use for CVHS and our kids!
In the past (pre-COVID rules), the CVHS PTO sold lunch and snacks three days a week on campus. These sales supplemented the CVHS cafeteria program, adding to the variety of options for students. *Please note that this program has been on hold and we hope to re-introduce it in some form this fall.*
PTO sells T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, bumper stickers, and more. Students and parents can buy goodies on campus at designated times and at our online school store here.
