Hello MVMS Families,


MVMS Weekly Parent Update

December 7, 2018

Trimester 1 Report Cards

Trimester 1 report cards were distributed via Alma today.  My apologies for the two emails. I thought I had made an error on the first run through and sent it out a second time.  Learning curve! Please contact us if you have any issue accessing your student’s report card.


Sixth Grade News

On 11/30, Mrs. Kilmister’s science classes worked with Mr. Robert Vallieres from NH Fish and Game to learn about endangered species in a program called Here Today, Gone Tomorrow. He is also an author of the book, "Wounded Warriors, A Soldier's Story of Healing through Birds".  Thank you, Mrs. Kilmister for bringing this opportunity to our students!


8th Grade SS - Ms. Dunn

Students are making Book Trailers for the WWII books read in class.  Students chose to read one of the following over the first Trimester:  The Diary of Anne Frank, London Calling, The Art of Keeping Cool, Soldier Boys or the Boy in the Striped Pajamas.  They participated in book discussion groups and the culminating activity is to create a book trailer to show to other students.


Let’s Go Fishing!

  • MVMS Feed the Need Food Drive is up and running.  Grade 6 is still in first place with points!!  Students are encouraged to bring in food to support the cause!  We will celebrate the Grade Level that has the most points by December 14.  We will be donating our proceeds to the local food pantries in the area.
