Board Members Leading for Success January is School Board Recognition Month, and it's a great opportunity to say thank you to the Mission Valley Board of Education who are committed to the success of every student in our community. Our board of education includes Clinton Lambotte, Clipper Goodrich, Jon Deters, Jim Rudeen, Tuff Stevenson, Jake Durkes and Mistina Kraus. These seven community leaders volunteer hundreds of hours attending meetings, reading reports and discussing plans and programs to support educational achievement. “Our board members develop policies and make complex decisions that shape the future of our education system. They are accountable for our annual budget, students, employees and buildings. A board member’s responsibility goes far behind the monthly meeting, however. “They also meet with legislators and other policy makers to advocate for our schools to make sure every child has access to an excellent education. We are grateful to have this opportunity to formally say ‘thank you’ to each of them.” Mission Valley encourages the entire community to thank a school board member, not only this month but throughout the entire year. So, don't forget to thank our Mission Valley Board of Education members.

Freshman's view on Vaping: "I think that vaping will just end up like smoking did. People need to be educated on the dangers of vaping and what it will do to you. Vaping is mainly targeting teens and young adults because they are drawn into things more easily. STOP THE VAPING!!!"

7th Grader's Vaping Message: "E-cigarettes are a bad thing. They kill people by the chemicals. The sellers trick kids into buying them w/flavors. If they aren't banned then more people, teens, & kids will die. It's a very bad thing. People think vaping is non-harming, but it is."

Friday is our first home game, so come out and cheer on the Vikings in your best construction gear! Please spread the word and show your Viking Pride!

We hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and are preparing for Christmas, we sure are at Mission Valley! We love the Christmas season and what it means, as a season of giving. We want to share that love of giving with the students. After discussing different ways we can give back, the Topeka Rescue Mission continued to jump out as a place that could benefit from our generosity. We have spoken to the director of the Topeka Rescue Mission, Barry Feaker, who explained that they have a huge need of toys (infants on up) for Christmas presents this Christmas season. We would like to hold a toy drive in support of the Rescue Mission here at Mission Valley. If you can help us show our students what it is like to give back, we would appreciate it. Please have your child bring any new toy(s) to donate, to their teacher, by Friday, December 13th. We will get the toys dropped off at the Rescue Mission in time for those in need to enjoy a great Christmas! If you are wondering about other ways you can help, please go to trmonline.org. If you have any questions regarding our exciting project, please contact Amy Johnston (email@example.com) or Annie Thomas (firstname.lastname@example.org ).

May 3, 2019 Parent(s)/Guardian(s): Thank you for your attendance this past Wednesday for the 4th – 6th Grade Spring Concert. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the 5th Grade Band was not able to perform as previously scheduled. I know our students, as well as Mr. Rogers, have worked very hard throughout the year and we want to make sure they have an opportunity to perform their portion of the concert. After meeting with the students on Thursday and talking with Mr. Rogers, we have worked together to find a solution so our students can still have their performance. On Wednesday, May 8th, our 5th Grade Band will perform a small concert at 3:00 in the main gym. | know that some may wish to attend, but due to work or prior commitments you might not be able to. With that said, I would still like to extend this invitation to anyone that may be able to come and watch our students perform. I look forward to seeing them perform next Wednesday, and thank you again for all your support throughout the year and through this change. Sincerely, Brett Fenton

Please read this wonderful letter from a mom of a child with Autism. Attached is an order form if you would like an Autism Awareness Shirt. "Hey Mission Valley Vikings! Many of you know my son Carter. He is usually bouncing off the walls or observing the way things fall. His latest thing is using a chain or a string of beads and swirling it like a lasso. We have a real cowboy in our family! And how can you forget that smile?! Carter was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2. He wasn't interested in playing. His favorite past time was poking shoe laces down into a heat vent. Anyone who knows me knows I could go on and on so I will try my best here. I have been so amazed and proud of Carter's classmates and this school as a whole. I believe understanding is the key to acceptance. It's understanding why Carter gets upset when there's too much noise. That it may not be a tantrum but Carter just having a hard time. Also, just because Carter is non-verbal doesn't mean that he doesn't have anything to say. Carter uses an IPad to communicate. Many times, I have heard about a friend taking Carter's hand or asking him if he needs his talk Ipad. My wish is that every child understands just because Autism may make you think and play differently doesn't mean that you can't be friends. So, with that being said, April is Autism Acceptance Month. We will be selling shirts to help raise awareness and acceptance. All proceeds will be staying within the Mission Valley School. With Mrs. Meek's help, I would like to purchase a few framed Autism Acceptance posters to place around our halls in hopes to help educate parents, students, and visitors. This is one step of spreading awareness and acceptance. "Look beyond Autism and see someone special" Thank you for your support! Ronie Willard
April is Autism Awareness Month. According to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects an estimated 1 in 59 children in the United States today. There are many sub types of autism with no one specific cause. Some maybe influenced by combinations of genetic and environmental factors. As each one of us is different, Autism affects children differently. Some may have more severe cases and some you may not see. Thank you for joining us next week by dressing up. Monday: Be a good sport Wear your favorite team’s shirt Tuesday: Light it up Blue Day Wear Blue Wednesday: Hats off to Autism Wear a hat Thursday: Be an individual Crazy socks or crazy hair day Friday: Be Comfortable with Autism Wear pajamas
