Mill Valley Weekly

Thursday, December 5th, 2019

Hello Mill Valley Families,

Congratulations Coach Smith and the entire Muskego High School football team on their State Championship two years in a row! We had so much fun cheering you on as your buses drove down Racine Avenue.

With the cold and snow season upon us, please review the district's protocol for closing school due to inclement weather, available on our website.

If you haven't done so already, please take a few minutes to complete the Parent Satisfaction Survey. We appreciate your feedback as we strive to improve.

Thinking Students...Changing the World!

Holiday Movie Night and Cookie Exchange

Mill Valley’s PTO invites your family to join us for a Holiday Family Movie Night and cookie exchange in the MV gym at 6:30 pm on Friday, December 13th. We will be watching the 2018 version of The Grinch. Please feel free to come in your pajamas and bring your “comfy supplies” (blankets, chairs, pillows, etc.).

We are also asking families who would like to participate in a cookie exchange to bring their favorite cookies in a disposable container (or wrapped). Then, you are welcome to take home someone else’s cookies. Families are encouraged to bring gluten-free and nut-free options too. Cookies will be clearly marked indicating these options. Any leftover cookies will be donated to local nursing homes for their holiday enjoyment.

Door #12 will be open and the blacktop is available for parking.

We are looking for a few volunteers to help with this event. We would greatly appreciate your time. Please email MV PTO if you are interested.

Spreading Holiday Cheer

Your student can send someone a little extra holiday cheer this season with a Candy Cane Gram!

Candy Cane Grams will be for sale before school and during lunch the week of December 16th-20th. All Candy Cane Grams are $1.00!

A Candy Cane Gram includes a personalized gift tag filled out by the student and a flavored candy cane. Your “Gram” will be delivered to the designated classroom at the end of each day (or the following morning)!

Marcus Movie Theater Fundraising tickets/gift cards will be coming home TODAY with your child! Please make sure to check their backpacks. Larger orders can be picked up in the office.

Attendance Matters

The holiday season can be a stressful time for both adults and children. Stress can decrease our ability to fight off illness thereby increasing our absences from school. Here’s an article from VeryWell Family about Preventing Holiday Stress and Anxiety in Children.

A Note from our District Nurse...

When calling in your student's absence, please state the reason for the absence. Schools are required to report illness information to the Health Department. If your student is absent due to illness please state his or her symptoms such as fever, sore throat, or stomach flu. If no symptoms are stated it may be necessary for the health staff to contact you to verify. Please state if your student has a medically confirmed diagnosis such as strep throat or influenza.

Students excused for an appointment are asked to bring verification of their appointment back to school upon their return.

Thank You
