Thank you to all those that attended our first Advisory Conferences.  We hope they were helpful.  Our goal is to  assist you and your student in accomplishing their future goals. If you were unable to attend, please give your students' advisor a call or set up an appointment to review the information that is available to you. If you did not have an opportunity to chat with a teacher about your child's classroom performance, you may either email or call them at the school.  Email addresses are available on each teacher's webpage.
The Attendance Incentive for the Spring 2016 semester is available to freshman through senior students. We are hopeful that this Spring, we will exceed our fall total of 47.2% that met the criteria.  This incentive waives student’s finals and their attendance for those two day's finals are given if they meet the following criteria:
 4.0 GPA can miss up to 4 days
 3.5 GPA can miss up to 3 days
 3.0 GPA can miss up to 2 days
Mission Valley will continue to find ways to reward the academic success and positive behaviors our student’s exhibit. Keep up the good work!!

Seminar is a busy, hectic, time period at the end of the day, serves many purposes for Mission Valley students.
 Monday’s and Friday’s are most often used for academic assistance, students can request help in areas they are struggling or teachers can schedule test corrections or retakes.
 Tuesday’s and Thursday’s seminar is used for scheduled club meetings. Involvement continues to be a major indicator of student academic success. We want our students involved!!
 Wednesday’s seminar is used for pop- up meetings and scheduled Advisory Meetings and Character Ed. Mission Valley continues to bring Character Education opportunities to its students on a monthly basis. Most recently we have used Dr. Tim Elmore’s Habitudes series to introduce topics related to character, leadership and positive peer influences.

As always it's great to be a part of this outstanding community called Mission Valley. Please feel
free to contact me with any good news, questions or concerns.

Just a few Reminders
  • Our attendance system provides automated calls for absent students. Please be sure to contact the office ASAP when you know that your student will be absent.
  • A top priority of our schools is to provide a safe and secure educational environment. In doing so, supervision plays an important role. Students are not to be in the school unsupervised before or after school. This is a major liability to the district. Most often this is an issue after school on game nights.
  • Students are not to be left at school to wait for games to start as we cannot provide supervision. Students will need to leave after school or after practice and return at game time.
  • Cell phones have been an issue to start the year, more so than in years past. The policy allows for school use at teacher discretion while in class. Personal use is allowed before/after school and during passing periods. Students are asked to not use the school network and use their own data plan. As with anything, continued issues will warrant increased limitations.
1st offense- Phone is taken and the student picks up in the office after school.
2nd offense - Phone is taken and the parent must come pick up in the office after school.

As always, it's great to be a part of this outstanding community called Mission Valley.
