Principal’s Update: The class of 2018 is a special group of students who have a bright future ahead of them. They will be missed at MVK, but their memories will not be forgotten. When I think of the 2018 graduates I will remember their overall leadership, compassion, and positive influence on our school culture. They took on new initiatives serving as role models and peer tutors for younger students, challenged themselves academically, and showed genuine respect and appreciation for the teachers they had throughout their middle school career. I am confident they will all go on to do great things!
Principal’s Update: The 7th grade class took their field trip to Camp Tuckabatchee this week. The students were able to relate their experiences on the field trip to their learning in the classroom. They observed how various life forms interact while on their hike through a deciduous forest. MVK received a Biodiversity Grant this year through the Illinois Department of Natural Resources that covered a significant portion of the trip. A special thank you all of the donors that made this grant available.
Principal’s Update: We are fortunate to have an amazing staff at MVK. The teachers, aides, office staff, bus drivers, custodians, school nurse, and cafeteria workers do an outstanding job engaging students in learning, building positive relationships, and serving as positive role models. Thank you to Parents’ Club for providing us with special gifts all week and to all the parents and community members who have brought in treats.
Principal’s Update: Mrs. Siedentop took on a new initiative this year called 100 Mile Club. The 100 Mile Club was established in 1993 and challenges students to run, walk, or jog 100 miles over the course of the school year. Students have had the opportunity to run extra laps before and after PE, at recess, and during I&E. A big thank you to Parents’ Club for purchasing the 100 Mile Club shirts for all students who made it to 25 miles.
