In addition to our friends and family campaign, the CVHS PTO hosts socials and fundraisers each school year. These FUN events enable the PTO to support our great school while socializing with other school supporters. Past events have included an Astros Watch Party at Karbach Brewery, a fabulous Wine and Dine Party, Movie Nights on the Roof, CVHS 20th Birthday Bash, and BINGO Night. PTO also hosts Parent Coffee Mornings and After-Work Drinks. Stay tuned for this year’s offerings!
