Adams has been hosting the tournament for the District for six years. This year’s check in the amount of $31,329.29 and funds that were available from previous years enables the District to distribute $50,000 to students, the largest amount since the tournament began. To date, more than $145,000 has been given to 116 seniors.

  • Illustration saying Congratulations with stars and streamers around it Three CVUSD administrators and the HOPE Center program are award winners

    Three Chino Valley Unified School District administrators and the District’s HOPE centers program for families in need have been named recipients of awards from the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Region 12.

    Yvette Farley, principal of Hidden Trails Elementary School in Chino Hills, has been named the Elementary Principal of the Year.

    Ryan Candelaria, assistant principal of Glenmeade Elementary School in Chino Hills, has been named Elementary Co-Administrator of the Year.

    Rod Federwisch, principal of Butterfield Ranch Elementary School in Chino Hills, is the recipient of the Wilson A. Grace Award for exemplifying the ideals and accomplishments of Wilson Grace in his efforts in professional leadership. Among the traits for the awards are tolerance, compassion, and the ability to inspire professional growth in others.

    Chino Valley Unified School District’s HOPE Centers program is the recipient of the Educational Excellence Award. The five centers, which provide resources and referrals to Chino Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) families in need, are located at the Chino Valley Adult School, Dickson and Walnut Avenue elementary schools in Chino; Alternative Education Center in Chino Hills, and Dickey Elementary School in Ontario.

    The HOPE Resource Centers are the vision of CVUSD Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph who wanted to help families in need in the school district after realizing that many academic problems stem from issues children have at home. In February 2014, he established a HOPE Committee of local community leaders to address those issues, and in November of that year, the school district opened the five centers with $250,000 it had set aside for the project.
    The ACSA award recipients will be honored and receive their awards at the ACSA Spring Celebration/Administrator of the Year Awards Dinner on April 18 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in San Bernardino.

  • Elementary students with more than one hundred duffle bags in front of them Eagle Canyon provides a helping hand to foster youth

    Eagle Canyon Elementary School collected more than $3,125 recently to purchase, decorate and fill more than 120 duffle bags for foster youth.

    The students, along with other No Excuses University (NEU) schools across the nation, took on the duffle bag drive after learning that foster youth usually carry their belongings from one foster home to another in small plastic storage bags.

    Eagle Canyon was the top grossing school in the NEU fundraising drive. The students, staff, and parents collected the money for three consecutive weeks, promoting the effort in class competitions, assemblies, and through individual encouragement.

    The duffle bags, known as “sweet cases” were stuffed by students during a morning rally.

    Eagle Canyon works with other NEU schools across the nation on a charity each year.

    A NEU school promotes the concept that all students will attend college.

  • Illustration of a computer buttom with the word Feedback on it We want your feedback

    The Chino Valley Unified School District serves a vital role in our community by providing quality education to local students. Our award-winning schools significantly outperform the County and state averages, and our teachers continue to be recognized as educators of the year on both County and state levels.

    However, most of our local schools were literally built decades ago – with some built in the 1950s – and need basic health and safety improvements. We know that if we want to maintain a high-level of academic excellence for our students, we need to invest in our aging schools and technology, improve classrooms, and keep our children safe.

    As we plan for the future of our schools, we need your input! Join the Community Conversation and let us know your priorities for local schools.

    Please print out and complete the feedback form today. Mail or fax it back to us at: Chino Valley Unified School District, 5130 Riverside Drive, Chino, CA. 91710, Fax (909) 548-6096.
