Wolf Pack Weekly

November 8, 2019

Dear MVHS Students and Families,


I want to send a quick note expressing how honored and excited I am for the opportunity to step into the role of Interim Principal at Mission Vista High School. My journey at MVHS began when I was hired as an Assistant Principal toward the end of the 2013-2014 school year, and I knew from the very first moment I stepped on campus that Mission Vista was an amazing school. I feel privileged to have been a part of the Mission Vista community for the past five and a half years, and every day I am grateful to be able to work alongside such talented and dedicated students, staff, and families. As we move forward with the school year, I am excited to continue supporting the phenomenal work that we as a faculty and staff have been doing together to serve our students and families, and I am committed to doing everything I can to continue serving the needs of our school.


-Jeremy Walden
