Skip to main content Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. David M. Burns  The difference between school and life? In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson. Tom Bodett  If people did not do silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done. Ludwig Wittgenstein

Over the last few years CVMS has been acquiring technology for classroom use. Some of the prominent technology in the classroom include Promethean interactive display boards, and Chromebooks. Specifically, the decision to purchase Chromebooks in lieu of a programmed computer lab station refresh has brought additional to the campus. Additionally, recent Chromebook purchases through school and grant funding has allowed for the initial phase of a 1:1 Chromebook roll-out. It is the intent of the middle schools, including CVMS, to provide 6th grade students with a 1:1 device over the 2016-2017 school year. 6th grade staff members continue to receive training related to the appropriate use of this 21st technology in the classroom. At this time, October 2016, 6th grade students have had continual access to this technology in their classrooms. Soon, the 6th grade students will have the capacity to take their assigned Chromebook home for class work. The details of this specific Chromebook roll-out are under consideration at this time. The distribution of these Chromebooks are managed through the library. 
 
In addition to Chrome books, CVMS maintains three curricular computer labs which are available through a lab reservation system. Further, CVMS hosts additional specialized reading labs (2-Read-180 labs) and a STEM computer lab (Project Lead The Way (PLTW)).
 
Further, a large portion of the classroom instructional spaces currently incorporate interactive Promethean display units. Classrooms without a display unit use LCD projection technology.
