It is hard to believe that the first semester of the school year is coming to a close. There are many programs and events during this time of year and I would encourage you to get on our school websites and Facebook pages to get the times and dates of these events.
I want to congratulate West Elementary and Marrs Elementary on their “A” ratings from the Department of Education. I appreciate all the hard work from our students, staff, administrators, families, and community members.
I hope everyone enjoys the holiday season, and I want to thank everyone in our community who has come into our schools and shared their time and talents with our students and staff. If you have a concern, we welcome you to contact your child’s school and talk to his/her teacher or administrator. You may also contact our district office. The students last day before Christmas break is Wednesday December 19th. The students will return on Thursday January 3rd to begin their second semester.

The Metropolitan School District of Mt. Vernon is dedicated to providing a safe, caring, positive, cooperative, pleasant, and challenging learning environment with high expectations for all students. Every school has its own home-school advisors, counselors, and nurses. Students in our district have access to a full array of services for special needs students, as well as programs for special needs students, as well as programs for coping with behavioral, social, academic, or other life stressors.
Driving the achievement, the MSDMV sits at the forefront of cutting-edge technology-based education. Technology is heavily integrated into the instructional process across all grade levels. State of the art hardware, infrastructure, applications, and software presented by tech-savvy teachers allows each student to have unique, real-world experiences that combine the use of technology with basic skills instruction. As a result, our students experience higher levels of engagement and academic achievement. Currently, our school district has a 1:1 technology initiative in place at MVJHS and MVHS, with plans to expand to all grade levels.
MSDMV is proud to have highly qualified, responsive teachers and results oriented administrators. The staff of MSDMV firmly believes two-way, open communication and maintaining positive parent-teacher-student relationships. Our district is focused on professional development and continued growth of all students and staff. Furthermore, the recognition of student and staff achievement is a priority in our schools. In addition to a strong social media presence on Facebook, MSDMV and its students and employees are committed to on-going community involvement.
