WELCOME BACK ROCKETS!!!
Anita Martos Principal
Here we go!!! Beginning of the year Must Know Items!
School starts July 20th for students NEW to MVLA. While there may be a few existing students who show up, this is really a time for NEW students. The existing students who come will be put to work on helping our new students adapt.
The Wheel Spin will happen on July 29th.
AES Time will be on Thursdays during at 12:25pm with Mrs. Binkley.
Students will not get their schedules until they come to school. We will go over those schedules with them here.
Finally, I only send out newsletters once a month or so, so please check back with our website at mvla.lcps.net for upcoming events and other information. We try to keep that updated as often as possible.
Student Pick Up Process
If your last name starts with:
A-G - You will pick up your student from 3:10 to 3:20.
H-N - Please pick up between 3:20 and 3:30
0 -Z- Your time would be between 3:30 and 3:40.
Of course, if this does not work for you we will accommodate everyone the best we can. Please just keep in mind if everyone shows up at once, there is often a back up clear down Lohman.
As the school year progresses, we will also have after school programs that last until 4:30 or 5:00. That will also decrease congestion a bit.
Updated Supply List
PTO and SAC Sign Up
Unless the group indicates another time, we will try to have our PTO meetings on the third Thursday of each month.
Always looking for Volunteers
1. We would like to start a MVLA 4H club, but we need a volunteer to head that up. If you're interested, please let us know as soon as possible so we can get that started.
3. We are also ALWAYS looking for volunteers to run My Times and if you would like to sign up for next year, I will take your information now. We can get your volunteer packet completed over the Summer.
Cell Phone Policies (Please start preparing your students now.)
If your child does not feel well, please tell them they need to come see the nurse and she will contact you if they need to be picked up. Students should not be calling or texting parents during the day unless it is from the office with an adult present.
Cell phones can be a huge distraction at school and we need your help to address this very real problem.
These are still available --
Also, we are working to ensure your students have access to tutoring whenever they may need it. Students from Arrowhead have set up a tutoring service that is a first come first serve basis. I'm including the link here to make sure our kiddos have that first opportunity if they would like it:
I sent out the following Compact once already before, but if you have not seen it, please review it.
As you review it, please let me know if you have other ideas and/or feedback. We can adjust it as we need to to address the needs of our school community.
