Dear Mission Valley Parents, Students, and Community, 

 As principal of MVHS, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone to another great school year at Mission Valley. We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms eager to start a new year and the excitement and successes of new learning. It is our desire to have every student feel welcomed, connected, and engaged in their learning career. We also challenge every student to grow in his or her academic abilities so that they are college or career ready as a graduate of MVHS. At Mission Valley, we have great teachers that spend long hours planning and creating learning activities to engage their students. We believe that all students need to graduate prepared for the demands of postsecondary education, meaningful careers, and effective citizenship. This year we have created a JH/HS Student School Supply List so that students will know the school supplies that are needed for their course schedule. This supply list is provided in this newsletter, on our website (www.mv330.org), and in our school office. We encourage students to log into their PowerSchool account to see their schedule and take the time to get their school supplies while they are available in stores. We ask that every parent expect their student to be involved in at least one school sports team, organization, or activity. We have so many opportunities for students to not only have fun at school but to be a member of our school family. Students that are engaged in school organizations have a higher level of academic success and a stronger relationship with our school staff that enjoys supporting every student reach levels of achievement they never thought they could. Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at Mission Valley. It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings. We welcome you to “The Valley” and to our wonderful learning community. Our school is a place alive with much energy, enthusiasm, and a high standard of excellence! It is, indeed, a place where opportunities abound! Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day! WELCOME BACK AND GO VIKINGS!
