Mill Valley Weekly

Thursday, October 17th

Hello Mill Valley Families,


We appreciate our partnership with the Tess Corners Fire Department and want to thank them for coming to visit Mill Valley Elementary this week. Every class got to see a fire truck and ambulance up close and hear all about fire safety. We captured some fun photos...see below.

Attendance Matters

Chronic Absenteeism is defined as missing 10% or more of the school year for ANY reason (including doctor excused absences). Historically, in the Muskego Norway Schools, our percent in attendance is high. Last year it averaged 96.37% at the elementary level. While that is an awesome number that should be celebrated, think of the 74 students (3.63%) that did not reach that. What can you do to increase that? What can we, at MVE, do to increase that? Please let Deanna Welsh know your ideas by calling (262-422-1131) or emailing her at deanna.welsh@muskegonorway.org.
