All donations go directly to the CVSAS Center. Students can bring their dollar on any day between now and Wednesday, and sign the jeans to show their support. Please see the front desk receptionist at either division to donate your dollar.

Upper School Prom
This year, ASB is presenting "Fly Me to the Moon" as their theme for Prom. Students are encouraged to purchase tickets early, as prices will rise as the date approaches. Prom will be on Saturday, May 26th at the Palm Springs Air Museum in Palm Springs starting at 7 pm. There will be cold drinks and dessert, photos and dancing!

As you know, we are a small but mighty Upper School. Only through the participation of all of our students are we able to create a memorable last Prom for the Class of 2018. If our younger students do not come out to support our current seniors, who will come out to support them when they are seniors? Please encourage your students to participate, so that they can ensure a healthy tradition for their own future class! Tickets will go on sale in April ~ $55 for a single and $90 for a pair. Come join us!
