News & Notes from Mrs. Kapuchuck

This past week was full of excitement and learning at MVES. Our Kindergarten students had a week of Candy Land themed fun. Their classrooms looked as if they had stepped into the game and the excitement on the children's faces was priceless. In fifth grade, each classroom was decorated in a "Fear Factor" theme. Students were engaged in problem-solving, inferencing, and so much more. These are just a few examples of the wonderful experiences our students have at MVES thanks to their hard-working, dedicated teachers. Our school is so fortunate to have incredible teachers who go the extra mile to get students passionate about learning.

On Tuesday, we had a dance party with Dr. Scheikl! Thanks to our students and staff, we raised $550 in just three short weeks for Dr. Scheikl's Dancing with the Stars fundraiser. We had an absolute blast that day! All of the proceeds went to the Harrisonburg Rockingham Childcare Center.

Parents- you can add money to an account online for your child to be able to attend the bookfair! Click here to check it out!

REMINDER: All RCPS schools will be closed on Monday for Parent-Teacher Conferences (elementary) and Tuesday for Teacher In-Services (Tuesday for all elementary school teachers).

We hope to see everyone at Parent-Teacher Conferences on Monday!
