Hello CVCHS students and families,
My name is Fernando Perez. I am a Senior at Clayton Valley, this year's Associated Student Body (ASB) Class President, and I am excited to introduce to you what ASB Leadership is and what we are up to! ASB stands for Associated Student Body, and it represents the interests and goals of the entire Clayton Valley Charter High School Student Body. Students in ASB plan, organize and participate in activities such as formal and informal dances, Homecoming, Spirit Weeks, grade-level competitions, school rallies, school spirit, community awareness projects, cultural events, and club activities. Students who choose to run for an ASB office do so because they recognize that there is more to being successful in school than simply doing homework. ASB is full of Clayton Valley’s most involved students on campus. To that end, the officers and appointed members of the ASB class focus on providing engaging activities that ensure a well-rounded high school experience. Below, you will find some details about upcoming events, so make sure to read thoroughly!
One of the biggest student activities coming up is Homecoming Week. Homecoming Week begins Wednesday, October 11th, and culminates with the Homecoming Dance on Saturday, October 14th, at the Concord Pavilion. Ticket sales are September 19th through October 5th. Get your tickets sooner rather than later! ASB takes Homecoming Week at CVCHS very seriously. The Homecoming Rally is planned for October 13th, and ASB is preparing to give the school an “astronomical” performance! Finally, the week of Homecoming is also Spirit Week. Themes will be released later this month for each day. The ASB class is working towards bringing back a long-held tradition of hosting the Homecoming Parade in downtown Clayton. We hope to see you there to bring back this long-held CVCHS tradition!
This week, the ASB class recapped our most recent event, the Senior Picnic. It was a fun day, and we had the largest turnout ever. The Senior class is excited to host more upcoming events and fundraisers, which all build up to the biggest event of the year, the Senior Ball. Senior Ball will take place in San Francisco on April 13, 2024. More details will be released as we approach the date. Please help the Senior class by participating in the Class of 2024 fundraisers, as this helps raise money for these events. The Class of 2024 were Freshmen during COVID and Sophomores during the slow return to campus, so they did not have as many opportunities to fundraise as other classes. The Senior Flea Market on September 23rd at the CVCHS parking lot is an exciting event for the Senior class. Stay tuned for more details.
Our Junior class is also actively engaged in fundraising, so they are prepared for their big event. Junior Prom takes place on March 23, 2024 in Oakland. Details will be released as the date gets closer. Juniors can support their class with an Otter Pop fundraiser on September 12th during lunch! Sophomores are beginning to organize fundraisers as well. Doughnut sales will occur on Fridays during lunch for the following three weeks. Support the Class of 2026! Finally, this week, ASB solicited votes for Freshman class officers. These students will be welcomed into the ASB class and start their own fundraisers. We can’t wait to welcome the Class of 2027 to ASB!
As you can see, your classmates, friends, students, and children are planning many of the big events at CVCHS. We could not host them without the great support and guidance from our ASB Advisor (shoutout to Ms. Ebert!) and CVCHS Administrators. Thank you for reading, and stay tuned for more updates on school events and activities. Stay UGLY & GO EAGLES!
