Monument Valley Regional Middle School Week at a Glance and News and Notes October 24-28, 2016   Note from the Principal: We had a great week!  Lot’s of hard work for the students, lot’s of focus.  We ended the week with a half-day, and ended the half-day with a great all-school assembly.  Open Thought Productions is a Hip Hop Education collaborative that does a residency with us and other area middle schools each year, sponsored by the Mahaiwe.  This year they did an assembly with us.  It was a blast.  Students learned about the history of the music, and we had scores of students participating through dancing, playing instruments, helping with spoken word and even beat-boxing.  It was a great community event and inspiring for students and faculty.  Open Thought then spent the afternoon with some of our faculty leading professional development.  The other teachers and paras worked in teams on various projects.  Teachers worked on performance assessments and paras were in a workshop on social-emotional learning.  We take our role very seriously in educating your children, and there professional development afternoons and days are essential for teams to do the good work to get better at our work.  Thank you for the time and support. Have a great weekend!

Week at a Glance Oct. 17-21, 2016

Monument Valley Regional Middle School Week at a Glance and News and Notes October 17-21, 2016   Note from the Principal: We have a good week ahead of us.  Students are well into the school year by now, and teachers are starting to organize students for unit projects and deeper connections to the material.  I love this time of the year, as there is still lot’s of fresh energy as we embark in the learning journey for the year.  Please take some time to ask about the big activities your child is doing—research projects, essays, memoirs, labs, compositions, creative projects, math reasoning—that help us see the world in new ways.  These are what we call performance assessments, and are what we value at MV for knowing how your child is progressing and how we know that students understand the meaning of the units. A reminder that Friday is a half day for students.  The teachers will be working on departmental goals, the paras are working on deepening their understanding of social and emotional learning, and there is a special workshop on integrating hip hop into the curriculum for some staff.  We are thankful you send your children to us, and do our best to make sure we are prepared to do our best with them Have a great week, and enjoy the warm spell!
