Monument Valley Regional Middle School Week at a Glance and News and Notes December 5 to December 9, 2016 Note from the Principal: We start our performance music cycle this week with Orchestra, then Chorus next week and Band the last week before break.  Each concert is on a Tuesday evening at 7 pm.  Please join us to see some great music and experience what Berkshire Hills is all about: high quality arts for all students.  On Wednesday we have a parent workshop called “Let’s Be Honest” which will discuss how to to talk to you child about sex and sexuality.  It is connected to units of study we do in our health classes.  It will be informative and useful for parents from all grades: you can never start talking too early! This is the week of Parent-Teacher conferences.  We are excited to see many of you this week, as this may be the first time you have a direct conversation with your child’s teachers.  Many of you are already up to date on your child’s progress and performance through PowerSchool, or have had close contact via phone, email or a meeting to discuss concerns.  If you feel up to speed of your child’s performance and progress the conferences are not required: they are simply an opportunity to have a short conversation and get feedback on how your child in doing in classes.  Join us on Thursday evening or Friday afternoon after the half-day—details below. Have a great week!

Week at a Glance Nov. 21-Dec. 2

Monument Valley Regional Middle School Week at a Glance and News and Notes November 21-December 2, 2016 Note from the Principal: We have a lot to be Thankful and reflect on for this season.  This is an amazing learning community, and we have our families to thank for bringing us amazing children, interesting students and the opportunity to teach the next generation.  We are proud to be Monument Valley teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators and staff.  And we are grateful to each other as educators for committing to such an important role in our society.  I am thankful for the way our teachers work in teams.  It is amazing to be able to join so many hard working teams each week, participating in discussions about teaching and learning, how particular students learn or what their needs are, and finding creative and thoughtful solutions to how to make learning come alive for all students.  Please take a moment to share your thanks as well with the adults who educate your children—a little gratitude goes a long way in making a professional feel appreciated.
