From the Principal

Hello Falcon Families,
You may begin scheduling a conference with your child's teachers today. Information and steps for scheduling are provided here. Also, 1st quarter report cards can be viewed on Monday, November 16th, see below for institutions.  Please make sure your Family File is updated to ensure you have access to the report card.  

Next week we are celebrating American Education Week from November 16–20, 2020. Every year we look forward to honoring public education and the many individuals who make a difference in ensuring that every student receives a quality education. American Education Week is a wonderful opportunity to encourage our collaboration and partnership with families. Unfortunately, during this time of virtual learning we will not be able to hold all of our traditional American Education Week visitation opportunities. Instead, teachers have planned parent engagement activities throughout the week.  So, do not be surprised if our Falcon asks what you think is a “random” history, science, cooking tip, math fact, or well-being strategy!  

Please join us for Coffee and Conversation with Administration and Student Services on Wednesday morning and MVMS PTA meeting in the evening. (Details below.)

During this incredibly unusual and often stressful school year, it is even more important that we celebrate the team of people at our school, including our teachers, support staff, food and nutrition employees and so many more. Please consider sending an email of appreciation to our staff

Thanks for Your Support, 

Lynnette Moore

  1. Log in to HCPSS Connect
  2. Select More Options from the left panel
  3. Select Standardized Test Scores from the middle

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Detailed PDF home reports are available in Synergy. To access home reports:
