Week at a Glance

Monument Valley Regional Middle School

News and Notes


Note from the Principal:


Another busy week at MV.  The energy is strong here at the middle school as the weather starts to break (but SNOW?!? as I write this…) and we get glimpses of warmth.  The fifth grade goes off to Nature’s Classroom this coming week.  It is a great experience that caps off the first year of middle school here at MV.  We wish them well in their outdoor adventures, learning about trees, animals, geology, cooperation and local history.  The rest of us have a fun filled week before our April break.


Have a good weekend!


Ben Doren
