MVHS would like to recognize our Transportation Training Coordinator and bus driver, Carmen Erickson. Over Regional Basketball weekend in Powell, another driver became ill and Carmen dropped everything she was doing to go up with another driver to bring the ill driver home, and Carmen stayed and drove the girls basketball bus home on some of the trickier roads we have seen on a road trip in a long time. Carmen stepped up and was her usual positive self while giving up an entire weekend with her family to support another driver and one of our sports teams. Great effort in support of a bigger cause. Thank you, Carmen!
The spotlight shines upon our high school students that are part of our newly formed Sportsmanship Committee. Thank you for your willingness serve others!
MVMS would like to recognize our ELA teachers, Mrs. Dolezal, Mrs. Kaiser, Ms. Page, and Ms. Jensen for organizing our first ever Read Across America celebration. Middle school students took 30 minutes out of their day to read to elementary students in kindergarten through 3rd grade. It was a great experience for all of the students involved. We look forward to making this an every year event. Thanks again to our ELA teachers to putting this together.
MVE would like to recognize Lisa Proctor, Angie Martin, and Tami Stoddard for the work they did in planning our first Title I Family Night for the K/1 pod students and families this month. It was well planned, and well attended. There were a lot of fun, engaging activities for the students and their families. Each student was able to take a book home as well. They are currently working to plan our 4/5 pod family night, and then will begin the 2/3 night planning. Thanks for the extra effort!
MVHS is lucky to have four seniors recognized so far for their academic excellence with 100% full-ride scholarships to specific schools. Tanner Erickson has been awarded the University of Wyoming Trustees Scholars Award; Teancum Piekkola has been awarded the Michigan State University STARR Scholarship; and Anna Jo Short and Kassadee Lym have both been awarded 100% of unmet financial need scholarships to the college of their choice via the Daniels Fund Scholarship. Thank you to each of these students for their hard work and for being recognized for the academic excellence and post-secondary readiness. Great job!
Thank you Special Education Case managers for your dedication! (Geraldine Schell, Lisa Jensen, Rhonda Behunin, Colette Bugas, Milly Webb, Lori Jensen, Brent Walk, Linda Newton, Lee Wentz, and Matt Clark). The evaluations, meeting planning, paperwork, and providing services to students are activities that require a significant amount of time and energy. You are very much appreciated!
Congratulations to the following MVMS students who participated in State FCCLA events in Cheyenne. Angelica Shassetz, Josie Wilson, and Reese Osborne competed very well in their events with some 1st place hardware brought home. These students have put in a lot of time and effort preparing for State. Also, a huge shout out to their advisor, Mrs. Brid, along with extra help and support from Ms. Page and Mrs. Dolezal.
Thank you Special Education Parent Advisory Group (Amy Walker, Angelique Littlejohn, and Becky Rolston) for organizing and participating in a parent night. Your voices and opinions help improve what we do for students.
MVE would like to thank Mrs. Phillips, Mrs. Clark, and Mr. Baxter for their hard work in preparing our K-5 students for their music programs this year. MVE also recognizes the preparation the students put into making these fun events for all to watch. Awesome job!
