It is important you continue to monitor our Facebook page, website, and mobile application for important updates.
August 21, Solar Eclipse – We have purchased paper goggles for staff and students to enable a visual of this event. We will have an activity surrounding this rare event on the first day of school. If you would like more information go to www.eclipse2017.org
Little Lions Preschool and Child Care Programs – We are delighted to communicate that our program numbers have more than doubled in just one school year. We are now enrolling for the Little Lions Preschool and Child Care located at Fuller Street Elementary School. Preschool starts August 21, 2017. If you have any questions about the program please contact Annette Kent, Program Director at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please see more detailed information on our website: http://www.mvs.k12.mi.us/schools/little-lions/
Air Conditioned Facilities – We have been installing air conditioning in our elementary buildings this summer. Not all rooms will be ready to start the year but it is the goal to have most of them completed.
NEW Social Studies Curriculum Grades 7-12 – Students at the secondary building will have new curriculum materials this school year. Teachers will be trained in these technology infused, engaging lessons. Our current resources have been out of date for many years. This will be a great improvement.
COMING SOON! Maple Valley Works Skilled Trades Education – We have been working on offering skilled trades programs ON SITE in our school district. These courses would be offered in the evening for our high school students in a dual enrollment capacity or to our community members who are interested. Stay tuned for more information on this wonderful opportunity.
Maple Valley Families, we are looking forward to a productive and positive school year. As always, if you have concerns please do not hesitate to contact me, email@example.com.
