Mill Valley Weekly

Thursday, October 3rd

Hello Mill Valley Families,


Earlier this week, we enjoyed handing out our All School Red T-shirts (provided by PTO) to all of our new Mill Valley students and staff. Let's all show our SCHOOL PRIDE and wear our Red Respectful, Responsible and Kind shirts this Friday!


Starting next week, our School Resource Officer, Officer Nowicki, will be greeting our students walking in to school on Mondays. Officer Nowicki will also be in our lunchroom on Thursday's talking with and getting to know our students. We are so appreciative of our partnership with the Muskego Police Department in keeping our school and students safe. Having Officer Nowicki here at our school helps to teach our students that police officers can be our friends and they are there to help us.


Golden Awards have begun! We had our first all school assembly where we recognized classes for following the Mill Valley expectations. We also introduced a very special member of our Mill Valley family...Warrior Wolf! Check out the pictures below.


This past month we had 907 paw prints given out to our students to reinforce the positive behaviors that they are exhibiting throughout the school. Way to go!!
