IN THE DISTRICT
For more than four years now, I’ve been volunteering within the district to make a positive impact for our students. In order to have a better understanding of what needs can be addressed, as well as what excellent school benefits the schools in our district provide, I make an effort to tour school campuses as well as visit parent information nights. I also volunteered counseling students and parents at CVUSD’s Break Through Counseling Center.
