Parent Resources at School
An effective teacher can make all the difference in student achievement. Teachers who strike the right tone in the classroom help their students enjoy school, and that means they are more likely to work hard and remember their lessons. Good teachers share a number of traits, including creativity, an upbeat attitude, consistency and solid instructional skills. We have wonderful teachers here at MVMS that are dedicated to helping your child succeed at school.

All students who have F's, will meet with those teachers on that subject's priority day. Every day after 2nd period all students recieve a progress report informing them of their current grades. Based upon a student's grades, they either meet with a teacher for remedition or attend an activity. Students that have passing grades are rewarded by attending an activity of their choice or they can attend classess to stay caught up with their work. Sometimes even if students are passing, they may be assigned to a FLEX session if teachers determine they need help mastering a concept.
