Principal's Message

Moving into spring!

The makeup day for snow day in January is Friday, June 2, 2017.

Seniors with any D or F as of Monday morning on April 17, 2017 will also have a required study hall at school the morning of April 19. Seniors with C’s and above in all classes will have the morning off and will come to school Tuesday afternoon.  Third period will begin for all 9th, 10th, and 12th grade students at 1:15.  Juniors taking the ACT will have an adjusted schedule based on what time they finish the test.  Seniors who are supposed to be in study hall that morning, but choose to not come, will be assigned Saturday School. 

Congratulations to MVHS Spanish teacher Tennyson Draney for being recognized as the UCSD #4 Employee and Teacher of the Year!  Click on his name above or the Lifechanger link if you would like to make a positive comment on Mr. Draney's nomination form as a Lifechanger of the Year.

The makeup day for our snow day in January will be on Friday, June 2, 2107.  Summer school will begin on the following Monday, June 5, 2017.  
Looking ahead to the end of the year, it is important to remember that students are not allowed to take final exams early or finish the school year early.  If students choose to leave early for summer break, they will receive a zero on any final exam they miss.  No incomplete grades will be given for the second semester and any days missed are added to the student’s total amount of missed days.

Our Awards Night is scheduled for May 15 at 6:00 pm in the MVHS auditorium.  Students in all grades will be recognized, with an emphasis on our seniors and their scholarship announcements.  If your student is being recognized at the awards night, they will receive an invitation to share with you.  Please attend and help us honor your students. 

Tickets for the graduation ceremony on May 26 will be handed out to seniors when each student is completely checked out from school. All textbooks must be turned in and fees and fines will need to be paid before seniors are given any graduation tickets or their caps and gowns.

Each graduating senior will be given 13 tickets.  2 tickets will grant the holders seats in the first four rows of the auditorium.  The remaining 11 tickets  will be for general seating anywhere else in the auditorium, including the balcony.  
Tickets cannot be given out to students or parents early for any reason.  Guests must have a ticket in order to attend the ceremony.  All guests are encouraged to arrive in a timely fashion as the ceremony will begin at 6:00 ceremony.

 This year, we have been using a Remind account for MVHS Students and Parents.  If you text @cdkbc to the number 81010, you will get important messages from MVHS regarding important events.  I promise I will not be overloading your text message in box.  I wanted this to be a chance for me to communicate with parents if we should ever have a late start due to inclement weather, or to remind parents about special events at MVHS.  This will not be a "daily" Remind.  Be sure to follow MVHS on Twitter; just bang the link below.

Thanks for having your child be a part of what we are doing here at MVHS.  I am excited to continue our 2016-2017 school year as we continue on our path to be Second to None.
