9/12/2012 9:01:00 AM Cougars fall in Friday shutout
One of the few highlights of the Cougar loss to the Marauders was this reception by Tory Marciel, who was taken down by Mingus defensive back Micah Nevarez. The Cougars face Camp Verde on the road next week, then return home to host Bradshaw Mountain on Sept. 21 at 7 p.m.
Cougars Tazmon Sproul, No. 6, Conner Richberger, No.1 and Branden Redfern, No. 56 work to bring down Marauders ball carrier Tyler Herndon during Friday night's football game. The Cougars failed to reach the end zone on the night, falling to Mingus 50-0, leaving them 0-3 on the season.

Take Off Your Blinders @@ Please
The sad thing is that you really believe that you are correct in your assumptions that it is impossible for kids to have a productive learning experience in "only 4 school days instead of 5". The kids love this schedule because believe it or not most of the students are actually great kids and productive at that! They are happy because they do not have to endure more hours attending school to watch another "Disney" movie or some other nonsense not even pertaining to their studies because the state says that they are required to attend school a set amount of hours. In order to be on a school team or on a support team you have to maintain good grades. Unfortunately some students are in fact drug users, not good in school or out getting pregnant (Although I do not know of any pregnancies) but I think that has a lot to do with being a product of their environment and you also included “not popular”. (Really?) But do not think for a minute that CVHS is the only school with those types of issues. Take off your blinders please. Also, a large majority of these students are already employed, attend school daily and make good grades while also being on a team sport. Most of the Junior & Senior class students have been self supporting and living on their own since they were 16 if not younger because of their home lives. I actually know a lot these kids and thankfully they are already on the right path in the “real world” and probably have better employment than you. Hey and you "Have a Fun Day"!

Re: CVHS Pep Rally
So, let me see if I'm following your train (wreck) of thought... Presently, these kids have only 4 days in which to learn and develop the knowledge and skills most other school districts provide 5 full days to accomplish. And you propose taking away another half-day of study, in order to accomodate the whim of the jocks, cheerleaders, and the rest of the 'popular' kids? Wow, no wonder CVSD is in the basement when it comes to test scores! No wonder the drug abuse, teen pregnancy and dropout rates are skyrocketing here in paradise. No wonder this generation of Americans will enjoy a lower level of prosperity than their parents, for the first time in my lifetime. So... let's reward poor performance by pulling students out of the classroom, and let's have some more "fun" at school. That way, they will be fully prepared for life in the real world, if and when they graduate, and attempt to join the workforce. Certainly there will be plenty of employers willing to provide full-time pay and benefits for three and a half days of work. What am I missing here?

CVHS Pep Rally!!!!
I always assumed Chino Valley High School had a friday morning Pep Rally during football season and the kids just didn't mention it. I was wrong. My daughter attends CVHS but goes to Bradshaw Mountain High School on fridays for JTED. She said their teacher said that their Pep Rally is an important friday morning ritual for them and asked that the kids take part also. She gets to experience their Pep Rally for which I am glad, especially since she is now a Senior and never knew things like this existed until now. My daughter loves it as do the other kids! I used to love friday mornings at my high school because of Pep Rally's. Let's get it together Chino and have them on thursday mornings since you are a Mon-Thurs school. Give the kids, faculty & players something to look forward to and have some fun!
