Teachers from CVHS


  • 1. Bill Thomas, Principal
    • Bill Thomas, the principal when CVHS started, has written a short history of the early years, including what it took to open the doors that first September, how a bunch of sophomores wowed the athletic league, and who made it happen. Click here to read it. Thank you, Dr. Thomas. We had no idea what went on behind the scenes. It seemed to work pretty smoothly from our point of view.
  • 2. Bill Thomas, teacher
    • The OTHER Bill Thomas, the English/Drama teacher from 1961 - 1997, has been in contact with us and said if you want to contact him, you can use this e-mail address. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it --- Sharing memories with a teacher who influenced your life is enjoyable for both parties: you get to give long-delayed thanks and the teacher gets to feel that he or she did something worthwhile. We all need to know that.
  • Mr. Vestuto, teacher, elementary vice-principal
    • Do you remember Mr. Vestuto, who taught physical education at Clark Junior High and was later vice-principal at Monte Vista Elementary School? He passed away at the end of March of 2007. Click here for more details of his life and career.
  • Fred Lange, teacher, coach
    • Fred Lange, who taught science and coached (head baseball, assistant football) at CV from 1959 until 1970, died on July 4, 2005, of cancer. He was 74 years old. He moved his family to Utah in 1970 where he taught and coached for another 28 years. He talked often of his wonderful students, friends, and good times at CV.

La Crescenta Early History

In 1939, The Montrose Ledger had an article about the founding of La Crescenta by Dr. Briggs and many features of the early times. It was reprinted in about 1970 and has recently shown up on the Chamber of Commerce site. If you would like to read it, you can click here for a version on our website. This fits well with Dr. William Thomas' history of CVHS's early years.
