Thank You Mission Valley Families It is hard to believe that another school year is already coming to a close. We have had another very interesting year, to say the least. As we started the school year thinking we had seen the worst from COVID the winter months reminded us that we were not quite back to normal just yet! Through all of the adjustments, changes, pivots, and protocols our communities stuck with us once again this year. It has not been easy, but we could not have done it without the support of our amazing families by our side! We want to thank you all for letting us work with your students every day. Mission Valley has so many young men and women in this school with bright futures ahead of them, that it is truly an honor to be part of their journey through life. We are working hard at creating the best educational and extra-curricular environment we can for our students and communities while keeping the vision of a student-centered family atmosphere in our building. Individual student success is our number one priority and we believe that positive relationships and family are a couple of the best indicators for future success in life! Our MV family is growing stronger and we could not be more proud! Thank you for all you do for our school. GO VIKINGS!

Assessment Season Twice a year our students will take what is called MAPS Assessments for Math, and Science as well as three times/year for Reading Comprehension. These nationally normed tests will not only show us how our students compare to other students their age, but they will allow us to identify those that need some extra support or interventions with reading and or math‐based skills. The General Education Intervention Team will use this data along with classroom grades and teacher referrals to enter students into our EXCEL programming. Our GEI Team is made up of teachers, our social worker, counselor, school psychologist, interventionist, and principals. When your student has been referred by the GEI Team for these supports you will receive a phone call or an email from Mrs. Lowe explaining the process specific to your child’s needs. Once it is shown that the student has improved and is closer to performing at the same level as their peers they can return to their normal class schedule.
