Welcome to CVE!

August 9, 2013


Dear Castro Valley Elementary School Families,

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year. On behalf of the CVE staff, it is truly my pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you as we begin the school year at Castro Valley Elementary School. The CVE staff will make every effort to help your child achieve academically and socially this year. It is our goal to create an enriched learning environment that engages each student so that he or she reaches his or her maximum learning potential. We are excited to continue building a community of learners, developing friendships, and supporting families at CVE.


I would like to invite each family member to actively participate in your child’s elementary school experience. I encourage you to become active in our Parent And Teacher Association (PATA). This active group of enthusiastic and committed parents meets on the first Tuesday of each month from 6:30 p.m.- 7:30 p.m. in room 16 (dinner and childcare are provided). PATA is a wonderful way for you to share ideas and support CVE students, teachers, and staff.


There are many opportunities to be involved at CVE. Parents/guardians are important partners in education as we work together to support our motto: CVE…the place to be!

You may:

Consider volunteering in the classroom, library, office, or computer room

Commit to reading with students each week

Volunteer in our RTI Bear Lab

Attend Parent And Teacher Association (PATA) monthly meetings

Participate in  Family Learning Nights and committee meetings

Join the Garden Club after school maintaining our school gardens

Volunteer for a PATA committee

Consider a parent leadership role on School Site Council, Title 1, English Language Learner Committee, and/or Emergency Committee (see attached nomination forms)

Work as a breakfast or noon supervisor


The CVE Student/Parent Handbook, CVE and PATA Websites, Monthly Calendar, School Marquee, and the Bear Facts newsletter will provide you with dates and times of school events and committee meetings. Please note that the Bear Facts will be emailed the first week of the month unless families have requested a print copy.

Mark your calendar!

I would like to thank you for your support and welcome you to the new school year. If you have questions, ideas, or concerns, please stop by the school office - my door is always openJ.
