I am Ms. Gayle Pavone, the Middle School Principal, Grades 5-7 and Director of Special Education.

Our middle school spans grades 5 through 7 and we provide a developmentally appropriate program to meet the needs of children in early adolescence.  The middle school is using the Common Core Modules to support in the implementation of the Common Core Standards.  This year to help meet the rigor of the Common Core 5th and 6th grade will have hour blocks for ELA, Math Science and Social Studies.  At the end of each day the 5th and 6th graders will also have a Learning Lab that will be 42 minutes long.  During the Learning Lab students will be grouped based on students strengths/needs.  Two days a week will target ELA and two days will target Math.  We will be using data from iReady, report cards and tests to determine what your child needs.  The 7th grade schedule will continue to be 42 minute blocks that will address the content areas, specials, and AIS/Flex. 
I look forward to our quarterly assemblies to celebrate the success of students at CLV.  We will acknowledge Top Ten, Honor Roll, Effort, iReady, Student of the Month and more. 
The 5-7 teachers and I are eager to support you and your child.  We know that the partnership between home and school is important for your child’s success.  Please let us know how we can help. 
Ms. Gayle Pavone
