Monument Valley Regional Middle School Week at a Glance and News and Notes Note from the Principal: This was a wonky week with the weather.  One day at school, two days hunkered down, two days of school.  It’s like three weekends in a row.  We are looking forward to next week, with school several days in a row.  Reminder that there is a half day next Friday for Professional development for faculty.  Also, please join us next week for our middle school production, James and the Giant Peach.  Performances are on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening, as well as a Matinee on Sunday.  See below for details.  In a few weeks we are visiting the high school to see their production of High School Musical.  And last week we had the district Choral Festival, a beautiful production.  A musical time of year.

Monument Valley Regional Middle School Week at a Glance and News and Notes   Note from the Principal: We had an excellent professional development experience today.  The faculty collaborated on imagining better ways to structure the school and exciting plans to meet the needs of each individual student.  I am amazed by our faculty’s dedication to teaching and learning: given the opportunity they create a community that works for kids.  Staff left feeling upbeat and excited about planning for next year in the coming months.  We will be working on maximizing learning time, addressing student interest, increasing time on literacy instruction, deepening advisory and academics to create cross-grade learning opportunities, inspiring reluctant learners and building in time for clubs and electives to keep student interest.  We have a really dedicated faculty.   We had another excellent week here at MV.  Enjoy the weekend, and send your children back to us refreshed.  Remind them to take their noses out of their devices, get outside in the crisp, cold air of this last winter snap, and come in to curl up with a book, or even read to them—kids still like to hear good stories.   Ben Doren Principal Week at a Glance: Monthly Lunch Menu: http://mvrms.bhrsd.org/food/lunch/   Monday, March 13 Regular School Day Tuesday, March 14 Regular School Day Wednesday, March 15 Regular School Day Thursday, March 16 Regular School Day Friday, March 17 Regular School Day   Important Information:   8th Grade Calendar Raffle  8th grade students are selling raffle calendar tickets.  The proceeds will defray the cost of our trip to Washington D.C.  Tickets are $10 each and prize winners will be drawn daily during the month of...
