The 2017 Sixth Grade Field Trip to the Mt.Washington Cruise was a success! 
We had 200 students and 145 parents join us for a fun filled day enjoying New Hampshire's beauty. 
SAVE THE DATE:
The 2017-2018 sixth graders will be planning to cruise the lake on Friday, June 8th. We leave the Weirs Beach dock at 9:55. We like to have as many parents as we can. It is a great way to meet the parents of new friends.

The Daily Schedule is detailed in "Important Information" on the left information bar.

International Baccalaureate (IB) authorization at Merrimack Valley Middle School has given us an opportunity to solidify best practices. 
Using standards based grading for formative and summative assessments helps us to represent student learning with mastery and highlight strengths and skills more clearly. 
Common Core State Standards help to ensure that all students are consistently receiving high quality education and prepare students to be college and career ready.
Smarter Balanced Assessments were given in the Spring to assess student learning.

 Pearson Realize Envisions Math 2.0  (weekly online work)
Our class is enrolled in a new online curriculum program for instruction and student assignments.  This program is offered by Pearson Education and accessed online using Pearson Realize.  Pearson Realize offers educational opportunities including helpful tools for students to revisit the daily lessons and practice standards learned while in class. 
To get started~ students have bookmarked Pearson Realize on their home page from their school Google account or can go to PearsonRealize.com. 
I have given each student a username and password. The formula for this is:
year of graduation first initial last name@mvsdpride.org  example: 24bpiroso@mvsdpride.org    passwords are given out personally. Please email me with any questions. A sample would be: PESpride24 for Penacook kids. BESpride24 for Boscawen kids, lespride#### for Loudon kids, WESpride23,for Webster, and SESpride24 for Salisbury kids. These were passwords setup last year. If your child is new to the district - their PW is MVMSpride24. Thank you.
