Finish this week strong with our Thanksgiving Basket Drive!

Friday: canned pie filling and pie crust.
***We could use more boxes potatoes and gravy!

Something to celebrate while we are focusing on giving this week. Truman Ambassadors filled the back of the Agape House Van with canned goods that we have collected over the past couple months and on #GivingWednesday! I am so proud of their smiles, leadership, and giving hearts 💜 #TribeLife #MVNation

***This one is just to put on your radar but know that you still have plenty of time and more reminders will go out in future weeks = Variety Show Auditions! See attached.

ast, I just want to leave you with an 'ah-ha' moment that I had this week...it dawned on me multiple times throughout the week the importance both in young and mature minds how critical it is to have a Growth Mindset. Not only is it important to have but more important to teach, model, and practice on a daily basis. I have attached a little info-graphic explaining the main ideas of having a growth mindset. I would encourage you to look more into it more on your own if your are curious! The thought of encouraging and supporting our students self-confidence will be so contagious among our building! It will allow them to interact with more self assurance. It will allow them to encourage others. It will allow them to smile more. It will allow them challenge themselves. It will allow them to sky rocket and grow through successes and positive outlooks. I will leave you with this quote:

Dear Parents & Guardians,

We are glad to report road conditions have improved significantly today and school will be in session tomorrow, Wednesday, November 13th. That said, as a result of today’s school closure, the scheduled late start for tomorrow will be removed and all buildings will start at regular times. Buses will run at their normal times with grades 5-12 starting school at 7:30 a.m. and grades K-4 starting school at 8:35 am. Again, all MVR-III schools will start at their regular times for Wednesday, November 13th.

As we find ways to upgrade our services for parents and guardians, our current voice call notification system is using a phone number out of Little Rock, Arkansas (501-712-2633). We are working to get that number changed to a local phone number assigned to the school district. Your patience is appreciated as we continue to improve all forms of district communication.

Thank you and have a great day!

MVR3 District Message: After driving the school district roads this evening, we have quite a mix of covered and uncovered roads. The covered roads are primarily ice and black ice. It is our understanding that county road crews won’t be out until tomorrow morning. As always, student safety is our priority, so given current road conditions, all schools including the School Age Child Care programs will be closed, Tuesday, November 12, 2019.
