November is upon us and these holiday months are always jammed packed with events and activities.  We are now in the final phase to complete the grounds of the new Mountain Valley PreK-12 School, transportation facility, track and football field!  Our ribbon-cutting ceremony was wonderful and thanks to all the community who could come out to support us and tour this beautiful new building. I again want to thank all the voters and community members who knew this building had to happen.  Thanks to our architects TreanorHL, contractors FCI, and owner’s representatives NV5 for tirelessly working with us to design a facility that will stand in Saguache another 50 years and beyond! It was marvelous to witness all of our 150 kids get to participate in the ribbon-cutting for their new school.  They were so excited to cut and take a small memento home with them. Not one piece of ribbon was left anywhere! As I stated at the ceremony, this school is for them and for their children and for the future community of Saguache! 

Mountain Valley, in conjunction with Saguache H.E.A.R.T., will be having another great career fair for 8th-12th grade students from MVS, Moffat and Crestone on Thursday, November 14th.  Over 30 businesses and presenters and 100 students will participate. Students will get an opportunity to learn about a possible future career or college adventure. MVS is dedicated to preparing students to be workforce and college ready when they graduate from school.  Thanks to Miracle Gomez from HEART who is spearheading this event and has worked tirelessly to contact all the presenters, coordinate the schedule and make this event successful! 

Congratulations November Staff Award Recipients!   Our I Love Kids award was passed to James Chaing who has returned to MVS to provide math interventions and is currently teaching two high school math classes. The Awesome Attitude award was given to Crystal Knight, an MVS paraprofessional and current bullying prevention coordinator.  Crystal also was the assistant middle school volleyball coach and works closely with our booster club. Julie Leathers, our nutrition services director, received the Continuous Creativity award. Julie and our extraordinary cafeteria personnel, Autumn Rice and Charlene Hammel, work wonders to provide nutritious and delicious breakfasts and lunches every single day!  Finally, the Above and Beyond honor was given to Anthony Salaz our maintenance and facility director. Anthony is a jack of all trades and is a vital part of our MVS team. Thank you for all the great work you do here at MVS!
