The new school year is in full swing with academics and athletics and it will only get busier so,  I like to share with students one of my favorite quotes  ‘NO DEPOSIT, NO RETURN’! In other words, ‘YOU ONLY GET OUT WHAT YOU PUT IN’! 
So, with that in mind, my challenge to our students, staff and administration as we go through the 2017-18 school year, is to ask ourselves how can we continue to raise our expectations?” 

On behalf of the Mission Valley Jr.-Sr. High School Staff, we want to thank you for the support and encouragement that you give your child each and every day and please join us as we challenge your child to be the best they can be!

Mr. David Cromer

The Mission Valley High School Astronomy Club was formed last year by Mr. Cromer, HS Principal, with the intent of linking the school with the NEKAAL Club which has the Farpoint Observatory on the north-end of the school’s property. The NEKAAL Club (www.nekaal.org) and observatory are a wonderful resource for the school and it provides a unique opportunity to expose students, staff, and the community to the field of astronomy and the amazing universe. The students in the Astronomy Club were very excited for the total solar eclipse since the trip has been planned for almost a full year. Mr. Cromer had arranged for the school club to meet the NEKAAL members near Lancaster, Kansas to observe totality of the solar eclipse. However, the cloud cover forecast for Lancaster was far less than hopeful for any opportunity to view this incredible event. It was decided to leave Lancaster and drive to Bern, Kansas where the cloud cover forecasting predicted clear skies around 12:45 PM, just minutes before totality at 1:06 PM. The Astronomy Club arrived at Bern to pouring rain. Things were not looking promising but they all kept their hopes alive. Mr. Cromer set up his solar viewing equipment for the students while everyone patiently waited for clear skies. Then, as predicted, the cloud cover dissipated and they all got to see a total solar eclipse. It was thrilling. Mrs. Spoon also attended and helped drive one of the two school vans. Mr. Cromer will never forget the excitement and shouts of amazement from the students at the moment the moon covered the sun. At Bern, they all experienced 2 minutes and 32 seconds of solar totality. They are pleased that they decided to change their location from Lancaster to Bern since the NEKAAL Club members at Lancaster missed the big show due to heavy cloud cover. These students were one of the very few in NE Kansas to view totality of the solar eclipse event and it will be a memory Mr. Cromer, Mrs. Spoon and the students will always remember. 

Students and staff of Mission Valley High School have had a wonderful start to the new 2017-2018 school year. Students are working hard on their new courses and in no time the year will be behind us and we will be experiencing the graduation ceremony for the Class of 2018. We wish to thank all of our parents and guardians that attended our Open House on August 15th. Our next important time together will be for Parent-Teacher Advisory Conferences on October 18th and 19th. Please mark your calendars so that you will have time to share with us as we work together to ensure your student has a strong academic school year. 

ZAP
There are a few new programs we have put into place this year. We are excited to see the positive effects they can bring. Below are short summaries of each. ZAP Program (7-12th grade) This program is an academic intervention that supports students having passing grades and keeping current with the expected learning in their core classes. ZAP stands for, Zeros Aren’t Permitted. This is in reference to homework grades in teachers’ gradebooks. We want each student to complete their assignments as expected. Students that do not meet this expectation are given a ZAP Notice for that assignment. This means that during Seminar period, the student reports to their assignment’s ZAP classroom instead of their Seminar room. While in the ZAP classroom, students are expected to work on and complete their assignment. We give the student three ZAP periods to complete the assignment prior to receiving lunch period detentions until it is completed. Students certainly can complete the assignment at home and still turn it into their ZAP teacher. We expect this academic intervention to produce strong results and to support students during their academic learning efforts. Students that complete their school work will not have 0-point grades in their teacher’s gradebook, be current with the learning expectation for their classes, and perform better on major assessments. At this time the ZAP Intervention Program is for core subjects; English, Math, Science, and Social Studies . 

High School Student Reward Program 
This year we are rewarding students that meet quarterly expectations on GPA, no unexcused class periods, two or fewer unexcused tardies, no suspensions, a limited number of ZAP assignments, and participate in at least one school sponsored team or organization. Students can earn a Gold, Crimson, or Viking Card. Each card has its own set of rewards. Your high school student can give you information about this new program and information is also available in our Student Handbook found on the district’s website. (www.mv330.org). 

High School Final Exam Exemption Policy 
We have updated this policy with improved expectations to support positive behaviors and outstanding academic achievement. Last year we adapted the types of absences that can be exempted in this policy. This year we are still exempting the various types of absences and parents can find the Request for Exemption form online (www.mv330.org) and at the high school’s office. Below is a summary of the updated policy per semester. If GPA = 4.000, then up to 4 non-exempted days. If GPA > 3.495, then up to 3 non-exempted days. If GPA > 2.995, then up to 2 non-exempted days. No unexcused absent periods (total from all classes) 2, or fewer, unexcused tardies (total from all classes) No ISS, or OSS No D or F semester grades If the above requirements are met, then a non-college credit course with an 85% or higher grade can be exempted.
