It’s hard to believe that another school year has come to an end and it won’t be long before students are walking through the front doors of MV, eager to begin the 2019‐20 school year. I want to thank everyone from the students, staff, administration, school board and patrons for making this year a very special one. Of course, as we reflect back on this school year and celebrate the many accomplishments, I ask that we also reflect on the areas that we can ALL improve on as we move forward.
