Mountain Valley School
Principal’s Corner Number 12

We recently had a staff meeting and honored four members of our Mountain Valley family with our prestigious traveling staff awards. Each month someone at Mountain Valley is honored by a colleague and presented with one of four awards. The “Above and Beyond” award was given to Mrs. Geneva Mixon, our middle school English teacher. The “Attitude” award was presented to Mr. Travis Weis, our technology coordinator. Our “I Love Kids” award was passed to one of our Americorp volunteer members, Mr. Alex Willard. And finally, the “Creativity” trophy was awarded to Mrs. Jody Abeyta, 3rd grade teacher. All of our family at Mountain Valley are dedicated to doing the best job for students. We know that each of us is a vital part of the team and that each has a huge responsibility to keep our students safe, happy, healthy, and engaged in learning. I know that our transportation department is highly trained and that each person who drives a bus or vehicle always has the safety of children as the top priority. Our cafeteria ladies provide healthy meals that must follow stringent rules and regulations from the department of education and provide for the diverse dietary needs of our student population. The custodial staff is ever vigilant to make sure the school is a clean, safe and comfortable place for students and adults to learn. All of our office personnel must abide by state rules and regulations, and procedures and policies are in place to make the day to day operations flow smoothly. Finally, all of our teaching staff and volunteers have the best intentions to do whatever it takes to teach and help students learn. We want them to be great and do great things! I appreciate ALL employees and members of the Mountain Valley family. Each of us is a necessary and integral part of our school community.
Upcoming events at Mountain Valley:
As we enter these last weeks of January our students are taking the NWEA winter testing battery. NWEA stands for Northwest Evaluation Association. These assessments are used in over 7,400 districts and school across the county. This research-based, computerized assessment program helps educators answer crucial questions about student learning. Information about every student’s learning allows teachers the opportunity to adjust curriculum and provide lessons to help students grow. Testing data and assessment are key components to help drive instruction. If we know a student’s learning level, instruction can be tailored to fit that child’s need. At Mountain Valley we are dedicated to providing the best overall education for our children, and we use many strategies and methods to increase student learning and help our children have success. Have an awesome week!
