News from Mt. Vernon Elementary

Welcome back to school.  This is the beginning of an exciting year for MVES.  There have been a few changes in our school for this year.  The biggest change, is that we have a new principal.  Mr. J.D. Bussell comes to us from RCHS.  We are looking forward to an exciting and fun-filled year of learning as he guides us through 2013-2014.  A couple other changes include our self-contained classrooms and uninterrupted reading time.  Self-contained classes allow students and teachers to stay together for the entire day, with the exception of arts block classes.  There will be less interruptions and allow relationship building time between teacher and student.  The uninterrupted reading time will have the first 90 minutes of the day devoted entirely to reading groups and instruction.

We’ve been here for a couple weeks and already a break is approaching.  Students will not be in school on Monday and Tuesday, September 2 and 3.

Picture day has been scheduled for Wednesday, September 4.  Wear your brightest smile.

Our FRC is sponsoring a Soup Bean Supper for Grandparents on September 6 from 4:00 until 6:00.  Flyers have been sent home.  If you have any questions, please contact our FRC at 606-256-5173.
