Dear Mission Valley Parents, Students, and Community, 

VIKINGS START THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR OFF WITH FUN AND LOTS OF SCHOOL SPIRIT The start of the 2018 ‐ 2019 school year was different than years before. The administration and teachers came together to redesign the first two‐days of school. Celebrations, fun, and entertainment were on the menu for everyone. We started off with a Welcome Back to School K‐12 pep assembly to get our school spirit rocking. Our HS Band, cheerleaders and dance team got the students and staff up on their feet, clapping their hands, and cheering for the Vikings. Even Otto, our therapy dog, was happy to be back to school. 

Four JH and HS students went with their Seminar teachers on a scavenger hunt all over the building to find the answers to important school rules for everyone to remember. Below are pictures of Seminar classes showing off their Super Hero powers. The skill of Self‐Regulation is still on our minds this school year. Several teachers put on a funny skit for the students to enjoy that covered the steps of Self‐Regulation using the latest Avengers movie as a theme to show off their Super Hero powers of Self‐Regulation. 

We took the time to acknowledge the many students that were awarded National and State awards over the summer in FCCLA, Robotics, All American Dancers, FBLA, FFA, and Shriner Band. We also recognized our Academic All‐League winners, high achievement on the KS Assessments, and second semester Honor Roll for 6th grade, JH and HS. 

Five Students and staff enjoyed the stories and words of wisdom and encouragement from Mission Valley alumni Mr. Dan Bryan. All of this, and more, was our Day 1 at Mission Valley JH / HS. So what was Day 2? Well, the teachers started the students’ day with a flash mob dance in the Commons that you can watch at the Mission Valley Vikings’ Facebook page. Lots of fun! Check it out! Thank you, teachers and students, for a great start to the 2018‐2019 school year. Let’s all work together to make this one of the best for all Vikings.
