Mountain Valley School District
I recently had a great learning opportunity while attending the 2016 Colorado Safe Schools Summit on October 12th & 13th in Thornton, Colorado. I took part in the following informative plenary sessions: Empowering Teens to Delete Cyberbullying and Make Kindness Go Viral, Unleashing the Power of Prevention to Promote School Safety and Positive Youth, Mitigating Risk and Improving Protection: A Public Health Approach to Suicide Prevention in Colorado Schools, The Impact of Marijuana Legalization, Safe2Tell and Essential Elements of Effective Behavioral Threat Management Programs. Additionally, I attended four engaging breakout sessions, which included Emergency Operations Planning, Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Truancy Panel, Understanding the BEST Grant Funding and From Urban to Rural Schools: Conducting Crisis Drills.
I realize that, as a school and community, we have urgent and important work ahead in ensuring student safety, both inside and outside of the school setting. It truly does take a village to raise a child, and I am looking forward to forming partnerships with our many community stakeholders while utilizing all available resources to build the safest school and community possible. Our children are the leaders of tomorrow; now is the time to invest in the future of Mountain Valley School and the greater Saguache community. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of children!
I would like to invite all parents and students to our fall Parent-Teacher Conferences on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 25th and 26th from 4-7 pm. Come and see all of the great things your child is doing at Mountain Valley School. Dinner can be purchased both nights for a small fee from student organizations. The MVS Science Club will be hosting the dinner on Tuesday and Future Business Leaders of America on Wednesday. Additionally, we will be giving away three Amazon Fire Tablets to conference attendees. Visit all of your child’s teachers to increase your odds of winning the Amazon Fire personal device, which makes a great educational tool, both at school and home. Please remember, there will be no school on Thursday, October 27th due to a conference compensation day.
I am excited to announce the Los Dias de los Muertos Art Exhibition, which will showcase artwork from MVS students. The art exhibition will be hosted by The Range Art Gallery at 307 4th Street in Saguache, Colorado. Viewing will take place on Friday, October 28th from 6-8 pm. Come on out and see the great work Mrs. Garcia and her students are doing in art class. It is sure to be a visual treat!
Go out and make today great!
