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!
Consider volunteering in the classroom, library, office, or computer room
Commit to reading with students each week

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.
