Mount Vernon High School Weekly Update

Almost There

Do you know that feeling you get when you have been on that long trip and you are minutes away from the destination? We are almost there! That feeling in your stomach wells up to your chest and depending on where you are headed, the emotion of arrival being that of joy or extreme sadness. I cannot help but think that there are many students right now that have that feeling as we head into semester exam week at MVHS. For some, the last semester exams of high school and for others, the start of the exam journey. Regardless, it is a point in time in the life of our young people that cannot be overlooked or devalued. It is a big deal for them, and for us as we want them to be as successful as they can be this next week. Students have been working hard in classroom and for many, putting extra time in at home to prepare for this moment. We are almost there!
