Dan Koch, always greeting students with this happy face!

From a new teacher...

I had a new teacher say to me that she can't believe how friendly everyone was in this district. She said this district was more welcoming, more helpful, and more blessed with technology than the one from which she came.

Staff, keep up the good work!

Keep reaching out to others.

Yes!! WE ARE MV!
