Principal’s Message 

Hi Families, 

We are having a wonderful week full of kindness.  Students made thank you cards on Monday.  Today, they will make a paper flower to give to someone to be kind.  Our community is fostering an attitude of gratitude, compassion, and inclusivity.  

I hope that over the Thanksgiving break you will encourage your students to reflect on the things they are thankful for to foster an mindset of appreciation.  And let us continue our acts of kindness because our collective efforts will make a positive impact.  

Wishing all our families a break full of kindness, respect, and peace.  

Principal K

Better Together: November

This month’s theme for #BetterTogetherMVWSD is Empathy. Empathy is fundamental in promoting understanding, compassion, and unity among individuals and communities. It enables us to connect with others on a deeper level, to share their joys and sorrows, and to stand in their shoes, even when we may not fully comprehend their experiences. Recognizing United Against Hate Week is an important time of year as it underscores the need to combat discrimination, prejudice, and bigotry in all their forms. By participating in this initiative, we reaffirm our commitment to fostering a community where empathy is not just a concept but a guiding principle that helps us build a world where people of all backgrounds can coexist harmoniously, free from fear and hatred. Join us as we recognize United Against Hate Week with activities and programming taking place November 13-17th at all school sites. For more information about Better Together, visit
