Good Morning, Welcome to Central Valley Academy News!

During this time of school closure, we felt it was important to continue sharing the Daily Announcements to your email inbox each morning. We hope this “routine” will help keep you informed about news and updates, and stay connected to your school.

Today is Thursday, April 2

Please take a moment to read the Pledge of Allegiance:

I pledge allegiance
to the flag of the United States of America
And to the republic for which it stands
One nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

From Mr. Keeler and Mr. Pratt:

Students are reminded to check their email and the District webpage several times a day for updates and other important news and information.
