There are no fees for PTO membership. However, Friends and Family monetary donations are always 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!

Lunch Sales

The CVHS PTO sells lunch and snacks three days a week.   These sales supplement the CVHS cafeteria program, adding to the variety of options for students. *Please note that because the District reopening plan includes no outside food to be brought to campus, lunch sales are on hold for the time being.*

SWAG Sales

PTO sells T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, bumper stickers and more. Students can buy during lunch hour when snacks are being sold, or you can buy anytime from the online school store here.
