Principal's Message

End of First Semester Information for 2018:

Happy New Year and welcome to 2019.  Hopefully you were able to take advantage of a little time off over Christmas break to get caught up on time with family and have some much deserved and needed relaxation.  Now that the second semester has begun, it is a full-on sprint to graduation, finals, and the last day of school.

   Our ACT statewide testing date for all juniors is April 2, 2019.  We will continue to have our ACT prep during Academic Honor Time for several weeks prior to the actual ACT test.  Right now we are looking at beginning our ACT prep for juniors February 18 and taking that time all the way through March 15.  Students will rotate through instructional sections in all the ACT subtests Reading, Math, Science, and English during that ACT prep time. 

First semester report cards are available via the PowerSchool online parent portal.  You can login to see your student’s first semester grades and print off their report card. (You won’t be able to use your phone to see report cards; you have to login to the Parent Portal to view and print your student’s report card.)

In February MVHS will be bringing in a presentation called Rachel’s Challenge.  Our current seniors saw this presentation in the sixth grade and participated in activities related to the program.  Rachel’s Challenge is an excellent program that focuses on kindness.  Rachel Scott was the first student killed at the Columbine school shooting in Columbine, Colorado in 1996.  Rachel’s Challenge is a program specifically for schools that emphasizes the qualities Rachel represented.  For those of you who want to know more, check out RachelsChallenge.org to gain some background information on Rachel and her family’s hard work in honoring her legacy.

We would also like to thank FCCLA State Advisor Angela Sweep for coordinating bringing Rachel’s Challenge back to MVHS.  She has been a huge advocate for our school and worked with an anonymous donor to provide for this program here at MVHS and LHS.  There will be an evening community presentation related to Rachel’s Challenge at Lyman High School the next day after the presentation at MVHS.

During the 2017 Legislative session, changes were signed into law related to high school students taking college level coursework and how that coursework would be calculated into students’ Hathaway GPA.  Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year all districts are required to use a weighted Hathaway GPA for all +1000 level and above dual and concurrent courses.  A student receiving an A in a +1000 level college course will receive a 5.0 for their Hathaway GPA for that course; A B in a +1000 level course will count as a 4.0 for that course, and so on.  This weighted GPA will be used to determine a student’s Hathaway scholarship eligibility only, and will NOT be used to determine valedictorian or salutatorian status, or other end of year honors, including class rank. 

Thanks for having your child be a part of what we are doing here at MVHS.  I am excited looking forward to our incoming students for the 2017-2018 school year as we continue on our path to be Second to None.

Ben Carr, Principal
