YOUR EDUCATION NEWS SOURCE
Dear Mill Valley School Community!

It is here…we are less than 48 hours away from officially opening our school doors and welcoming your children into their new classrooms, and we can’t wait!

Over the course of this week and beyond, teachers and support staff have been planning, designing and collaborating around curriculum, learning environments and instructional resources. We are keeping our focus on innovation, social emotional wellness and global competency – all while being sure pencils are sharpened, iPads are charged and activities are intentionally created to keep each and every child engaged and motivated to learn!

This school year we are proudly rolling out our new strategic plan, Initiatives for the Future , while focusing on the 12 attributes of the Mill Valley School District Learner Profile. This framework for learning will help keep us focused and mindful of all we get to do to ensure our students reach their full potential!

As a new member of the MVSD team, I feel honored to serve the 2900+ students who attend our Mill Valley Schools. I know there will be laughter…there will be learning…there will be challenges and…there will be successes!! So, prep those backpacks, pack those lunches and get to bed early – because Thursday, August 23 will be a fabulous first day of school across our community!!

Middle School Upgrades

When your student walks into the middle school for the 2018-19 school year, they will see brand new, energy-efficient LED lighting throughout the campus!

We anticipate the new lighting to immediately save 20-22% of energy costs for the Middle School. Thank you to the Maintenance & Operations Staff for this wonderful upgrade.

Additionally, the Middle School gym floors were renovated over the summer. They're ready for the students' return!
SchoolMint Reminder
Another improvement for the 2018-19 school year is the switch to paperless re-enrollment and data verification, the annual back-to-school process for updating emergency/medical and other information, thanks to SchoolMint and the Technology department.

Please complete your packet by the start of school (Thursday, August 23). You should have received an email from SchoolMint with your login information. If you have registered in the last 8 weeks, you will receive a separate notification to login this week. We are excited to use this environmentally-friendly and convenient way for you to fill out the majority of your back-to-school forms!
