Mountain Valley School District
School is officially back in session at Mountain Valley, and I am so excited to be working with staff and students on a daily basis as we begin another great year full of learning adventures. We have made some great changes at MVS, and it is going to be a year to remember.
I would like to take a moment and welcome Lucille Gomez to our Mountain Valley family. Lucille is our latest employee, a custodian at MVS, who brings an amazing work ethic combined with a caring and friendly personality. It is great to have Lucille onboard, and I am looking forward to all of the positive relationships she will build with staff and students. Welcome to the team, Lucille!
We started last week with four days of professional development for school staff. A New Staff Orientation was held for all new MVS staff members. This included introduction to various policies, activities and programs at our school. Additionally, we toured the district in a school bus and collaborated during lunch at the Oasis.
Four of our five AmeriCorps members joined us for the orientation and participated in beginning-of-year activities. This year’s crew is awesome and includes Troy Mucchetti, Stephanie Vineyard, Kari Vanderburg, Jena Steinbach and one more soon-to-be-announced member. These new AmeriCorps members will be great role models, mentors and teachers for our students. If you see them around town, please be sure to welcome them to Saguache!
A Substitute Orientation was held for all substitutes, where handbook guidelines, expectations and Standard Response Protocol (SRP) were addressed. We are always looking for good substitute teachers at MVS. If you are interested in working at Mountain Valley as a substitute teacher, please stop by the school and visit with me.
Our All-staff In-service was a huge success. We started off with some fun team building activities combined with storytelling. We discovered that everyone has a story worth listening to. Next, we moved on to Capturing Kids’ Hearts, Google Apps for Education, Colorado State Model Evaluation System, Relationship Driven Classroom Management and SRP. The week flew by, and the excitement in the air was palpable as staff eagerly prepared for students. I am so, so proud of the staff at Mountain Valley School District and the way they care about kids!
It is going to be a great year at Mountain Valley School. I hope to see everyone out and about at MVS games, activities and events.
Have a fantastic week!
