Principal’s Message 

Dear Families,

In the month of March, we will embark on the journey of Women’s History Month.  Let’s celebrate the remarkable achievements and contributions of women throughout history.  Women have left an indelible mark on the world and have overcome countless barriers to shape the course of history.  

Women have inspired us in all aspects of life.  From Susan B. Anthony, Rosa Parks, to Malala Yousafzai and Kamala Harris, women have pivotal roles in advocating for social justice and human rights.  They have made commitments to progress and positive change.  

They have made great strides as innovators and visionaries.  They have contributed to STEM, literature, and medicine.  Women in history have shown their creativity, intellect and innovative spirit can transform industries, challenge norms, and expand the boundaries of possibility. 

Women in history are advocates, role models and mentors.  Their mentorship and leadership empower your adults to believe in themselves, pursue their passions, and strive for excellence. Together, let us celebrate the diverse contributions and achievements of women and honor their enduring legacy of strength, courage, and resilience.

MVWSD works to update English Language Arts and Pre-K/TK Curriculum for 2024-25

As part of our district’s focus on literacy, MVWSD is reviewing updated English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum for our students in grades K-5 and integrated curriculum in preschool and Transitional Kindergarten. In recent decades, more research on children’s cognitive processes, language development, and reading acquisition has shown that curriculum that includes the Science of Reading helps to ensure children develop strong foundational reading skills, enabling them to become proficient readers. 

The ELA curriculum adoption committee and PK/TK adoption committee are currently piloting two curriculums each. The curriculums are built from the Science of Reading. In addition, the PK/TK curriculums are also aligned with research on language development and play-based learning. 

K-5 ELA Pilot Curriculums:

Amplify Core Knowledge Language Arts

McGraw Hill Wonders

PK/TK Pilot Curriculums:

Creative Curriculum by Learning Strategies

Three Cheers for PreK by Savvas

Families and members of the public may preview the K-5 ELA and PK/TK pilot curriculums at the District Office, 1400 Montecito Ave., on the following dates and times:

February 12th at 12:00-1:00

February 15th at 12:00-2:00

February 27th at 4:30-6:00

February 28th at 4:30-6:00

If families and members of the public would like to view at a different time, please contact Cyndee Nguyen, [email protected], to make arrangements. To read more about the curriculum adoption process, please see our district website

Better Together: February

February marks a very important time in our district where we pause to honor and celebrate Black History Month, shining a spotlight on the rich contributions and achievements of African Americans in our community and throughout our shared history. It serves as a reminder to us all to acknowledge the struggles and triumphs that have shaped the Black experience in the US. This month #BetterTogether also encourages us to speak up about the importance of equality, justice, and the ongoing fight against systemic racism. The essential question for the month is: How do I speak up for myself and for others? Black History Month offers us an opportunity to recognize and appreciate the diversity that makes our community strong, and to use our voices to advocate for positive change for all. For more information about Better Together, visit mvwsd.org/BetterTogetherMVWSD.
