Mr. Prince Principal's Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year

Excitement is in the air around MVMS this week. Student-athletes have been seen around the school grounds as fall sports practices are underway. More and more teachers are coming into their rooms to begin setting up for what is sure to be an exciting first week of school. Our wonderful custodial staff is putting the finishing touches on the building to make sure it is the best possible learning environment for our students. All of these are annual signs that the start of a new school year at MVMS is just around the corner and there is a lot to be excited about this school year!

Last year MVMS shifted its focus towards four key areas; Foundational Knowledge and Skills, Well Rounded Content, Leadership, and Social-Emotional Learning. As a staff, we strive to "Inspire and Empower" students to reach their full potential in these areas by utilizing our instruction vision of creating lessons that are data-driven, real-world, personalized, and engaging for all students. In order to achieve the best results with the new focus and vision and ultimately meet the needs of our students academically, socially, and emotionally, several changes were made to the structure and operations at MVMS, some of which will be mentioned below in this update and will be covered in greater detail during the upcoming beginning of the year activities outlined below. Whether this is your first middle school student or a veteran to the never a dull moment experience of early adolescence, we encourage you to attend the beginning of the year parent activities to learn more about these impactful changes.

We are very excited for students to return and to get the year started off right! Our Jacket PRIDE Committee has been hard at work developing this year's theme and kickoff activities. While trying not to give so much away, we can't wait for all of you to step foot in our house for what is sure to be a fantastic school year!

Go Jackets,

Darin Prince

Middle School Principal
