Happy Thanksgiving! There is no school this week as we just completed fourteen weeks of school. That’s sixty-four action and activity-packed days. Students and staff have worked extremely hard and this week is a welcome time to rest, relax and take some time to share with family and friends. All of us at Mountain Valley have many things to be thankful for. I am very thankful for all of our students, faculty, and staff at MVS, and I am blessed each day to see their smiling faces! I am thankful for the entire team of teachers, custodians, cafeteria workers, transportation personnel, paraprofessionals, counselors, coaches, secretaries, technology personnel and volunteers that make our days productive and purposeful. I am thankful for the parents, families and community members who support our school and strive to be a positive force for change and move our education system forward. Celebrate with family and friends this season and remember to be grateful for all the blessings bestowed upon each of us.
We celebrated at our first “Student of the Quarter” assembly this past week. Teachers and staff recognized students who have made outstanding progress in the areas of academics or social emotional growth. ALL of our children are important and each is cared for and supported in so many ways, but we took a few moments to recognize several terrific students! From the kindergarten; Logan Scanga and Jordan Dominquez; 1st grade- Smokey Randolph and Kimberley Salaz. 2nd grade honored Max Hernandez and Emilia Pfohl; 3rd grade- Cashel Johnson; 4th grade- Andrew Contreras; 5th grade -Anna Freek; 6th grade- Heaven Harford; 7th grade- James Brooks and Damien Ross; 8th grade- Alexandria Tronquet and Jacob Denison; 9th grade- Rachael Murphy; 10th grade- Destiny Haphey; 11th grade Laura Morfitt; and 12th grade- Ethan Volkman. Congratulations to all of these students for the fine work they do each day at MVS! Be proud of your efforts and keep up the great work!
