Two Gold Star Teachers Selected in CVCS

The best teachers are amazing instructors. But to their students, they are much more - role models, counselors, cheerleaders, and even superheroes. When we cheer them on and show them how much they matter, they become stars. Thanks to the McElroy Trust we now have two more stars at CVCS.

Two stars were announced in the Cedar Valley Catholic School System by the McElroy Trust and they are: Clarissa Mathews (4th grade teacher at Blessed Sacrament) and Jordan Sadecki (6-12 Music Teacher). We are so excited for this well deserved honor for two of our outstanding teachers. Facebook Link with Photos

CVCS Awarded Over $119,000 from Archbishop Kucera Grant

Cedar Valley Catholic School Board of Education is the recipient of $119,943.33 from the Archbishop Kucera Grant Awards from the Archdiocese of Dubuque Educational Development Fund. The grant was awarded for tuition assistance to those families who can least afford the cost of attending a Catholic School. A portion of the grant was also directed towards tuition assistance for minority students who qualify for Federal School Lunch Program. Awards for these two programs totaled $485,000 for the 2014/15 program year.

The Archbishop Kucera Grant Awards annually provides $80,000 for faith formation resources and leadership development for faith formation leaders, catechists, Catholic school administrators and teachers. The grant also covers one third of the program cost for adults enrolled in the Archdiocesan IMPACT Program.

The Archdiocesan Educational Development Fund was developed for the purpose of supporting the educational programs of the Archdiocese. This is the twenty-ninth year that grants have been awarded. Over 8.9 million dollars have been distributed since the Archdiocesan Educational Development Fund was established. Grants are made possible through the generous donations of contributors and parishioners throughout the Archdiocese.
