Mill Valley Weekly
Thursday, January 7, 2021
Hello Mill Valley Families,
For the month of January, we are going to build a giant snow fort to see which grade level can collect the most kindness cubes! Each grade level is a team. Mill Valley staff will be giving out paper ‘ice cubes’ when they catch a student displaying an act of kindness. At the end of each night, the cubes will be counted and for every 10 cubes, they receive 1 large ice block. At the end of the month we will announce the class with the most ice blocks and the tallest fort!
To help demonstrate kindness, we made THIS video to give examples for students.

- Face coverings are still required at school and will remain required unless otherwise communicated

We appreciate all that you are doing to encourage and reinforce how to properly wear a mask.
