Another great homecoming week filled with activities and events has now been completed. Students and staff worked hard to build and complete homecoming floats for our traditional parade. Excitement and fun was had by all! Our sports teams put in their best efforts and new learning experiences always occur with every new game. Thanks to all parents, community members, students and staff for your efforts to make homecoming week enjoyable!
As many of you know, I was a teacher for many years before I took on this position as PreK-8 principal here at Mountain Valley. I have always prided myself in knowing that I put forth my best effort to help children learn and grow. Teachers work hard. Sometimes the work is in planning, sometimes the hard work is instruction, and sometimes it is just trying to figure out what works best for our students. Teachers spend many hours going over textbooks and assignments trying to plan engaging, exciting and most importantly beneficial lessons. Teachers must meet and plan lessons as dictated by the Colorado Content Standards and must provide children with 21st century skills. Teachers also work hard trying to be their best for every student. They set high expectations and teach students to reach beyond simple memorization and regurgitation of facts. We all have unique talents and gifts that we share with students. We all have our children’s best interests in mind, just like parents and guardians do. I am very proud of our teaching staff here at Mountain Valley. They are hard working dedicated individuals who only want the best for our community and families. Thank you, teachers, for all you do every day!
