Back-To-School. While those three little words can conjure up a series of groans from most kids relishing in the final days of summer, but the truth is that the countdown has begun!
So get out the calendar and mark down the Back-To-School Barbecue one week from today on Monday, August 22. New Mountain Valley School (MVS) Superintendent and High School Principal Travis Garoutte and new PreK-8 Principal Kathy Hill invite the entire community to join the school teachers, staff and students for some good food and a chance to see all of the exciting changes at MVS. The BBQ lunch will begin at 11 a.m.
That same day students and parentscan should plan to attend the Mountain Valley School Open House from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Please stop by MVS with your child to update enrollment information, get class schedules and visit with teachers and staff.
Also new this year, Mountain Valley School is excited to announce that the Preschool Program (children aged 3-5) will be going to a full day program beginning August 29, 2016. Enrollment will begin August 22, 2016, at Mountain Valley School and will continue through Thursday, August 25, 2016.
MVS encourages parents/guardians who cannot make it to the open house on August 22, 2016, to call Lacy Reed or Peggy Williams at 719-655-2578 to set up a time that works best for your family’s schedule. During the MVS BBQ & Open House on August 22, children enrolling in the Preschool Program will be eligible for a free health check this year with Dr. Robbins from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. A health check is required for children enrolling in the Preschool Program.
During enrollment, Parents/Guardians will have to fill out the needed paper work; your child will also need about 30 minutes to complete an assessment as required by Colorado Preschool Programs (CPP). Please bring a copy of your child’s up-to-date immunization record or your child’s exemption due to Medical/Philosophical/Religious reason (they can make the copy for you); come prepared with your child’s health information, including an up-to-date physical.
Many changes are happening in the MVS Preschool; going to full day, as well as the implementation of the Creative Curriculum. The program will also be providing snacks for children, as well as tooth brushing to support personal health. They will also offer full inclusive learning environments to all children, while also providing loving and nurturing support for the whole child, helping them reach their optimal development; laying strong foundations is what MVS believe in!
