Governor Parson has issued a proclamation declaring this week "Parent and Family Involvement in Education Week". This week is to recognize that involvement in a child's education is a major factor in determining success in school, regardless of the socio-economic status, race, or ethnic background of the family, or the education level of the parents. Great ways to get involved in your child's education is through Parents as Teachers program, joining a PTO, Band Boosters, volunteering to be a Watch DOG Dad, and attending parent conferences. #MVNation

PHS Cybersecurity students interested in a career in the growing field interviewed Debbie Haley; Director of Technology. Haley reviewed the district's Acceptable Use Policy. Later, students provided feedback on the policy that will be shared with policy committee members. Students in the Cybersecurity course establish code of conduct while learning to defend data in today's complex cyberworld. MVR-III offers several Project Lead The Way (PLTW) courses engaging students in hands-on activities, projects, and real-world challenges. Find out more on PLTW at https://www.pltw.org/our-programs or contact your school's counselor.
Citizenship is one of MVR-III's eight pillars of success. 3rd Grade Truman Ambassadors exhibit this by greeting their peers with a smile & a handshake. Ambassadors also cover jobs throughout the day from collecting lunch bags, delivering mail to being buddies & giving tours to new students. Help MVR-III instill citizenship at home & in the community. #MVNation

Safety First.. A new year brings changes to routes & ridership. School buses may run slow the first few days of school as students are learning where and when to board the appropriate bus. Your understanding is appreciated as our bus drivers take a little extra time to establish bus routines. Our Transportation Dept. will be monitoring and adjusting capacity, routes, and times as needed over the next few weeks. Your patience is appreciated as our focus is on getting students to and from school in a safe and efficient manner. As always, we encourage citizens to watch for buses and be sure to stop while they are loading and unloading students.
