Welcome from the CVIS PTG!

Our PTG funds many of the school events for our students, such as field trips, assemblies, field day/5th grade picnic, Kids of Steel program, as well as playground equipment at recess. It costs approximately $75 per child for all that the PTG does, which is why we fundraise. We hope you will support our fundraisers throughout the year.


Read-a-Thon Raised over $16,000!

Our Read-a-Thon is a huge success this year.  We have received over $16,000 in pledges so far.  Thank you all for your support. Read-a-Thon will remain open until March 8th.  All money raised will go to funding our class field trips. Check out the full list of top classes and student fundraisers here.
