Happy New Year and Welcome to 2021! I am excited to put the past year behind and move forward. It is a brand new calendar year, and we are almost halfway through our school year! Seventeen weeks are now complete, and Mountain Valley School is gearing up to make the last half of this school year positive, successful, and extremely productive!
Our December finished up strong and it was amazing to see the outpouring of generosity from the community and our families to make this Christmas extra special for each of our children. Our MVS Giving Tree was a huge success! We had many folks donate special gifts for children and monetary donations were overwhelming! A special thank you goes out to counselor Lisa Powers for being the brainchild and getting everything going for us! Thank you to school secretary Patty Williams who handled all the logistics, kept everything organized, and spent many extra hours to make sure everything went smoothly! Patty is certainly one of the most vital and important members of our school staff! Staff, kids and families love Patty and we are so appreciative of all her areas of expertise and ability to bring us all together! Thank you to every individual and organization that donated gifts and money so that every child went home with something special! It was wonderful to see the excitement on each child’s face!
New Years always bring the promise of resolutions and a time to start again. As we venture into 2021, we will still be wearing masks, physically distancing, and washing our hands multiple times a day! We will also be caring for our students and families and diligently working to meet every learner’s needs! I am so proud of our students and the way they have stepped up to be safe and stay healthy as we will still be struggling to prevent this virus from attacking our school! Thank you to teachers, staff, and parents for being ever so vigilant to stay home when sick and protect themselves when out in the community. We want to finish the school year with no outbreaks and no times of quarantine! We still have lots of learning time until the end of May, and my hope is that all of us can resolve to move past these temporary inconveniences, stay mentally healthy and strong, take care of our physical being, and work to provide the best education for every child at MVS. I also hope and pray that each family in our community will continue to keep themselves healthy and virus free! Resolve to be kind to yourself and each other this year!
