12/11 Principal Message

Mt. Vernon Parents/Guardians,


Snow Makeup days

Student and staff safety is always at the forefront of all WCPSS decisions around weather. With the loss of instructional days on Monday and Tuesday of this week, WCPSS has announced the following makeup days:

  • Monday, 12/10 will be made up on 1/18/19
  • Tuesday, 12/11 will be made up on 2/19/19


2nd Quarter Interim Reports

Last week, Mt. Vernon students brought home their 2nd quarter interims. These interims are a good indicator of how the 2nd quarter is going so far and where your child may end up at the end of the quarter (1/18/19). If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s teacher.


i-Ready Challenge

Parents, for the month of December, Mt. Vernon is holding an i-Ready challenge for all of our students. If a student logs in at least 5-hours with an average a 70% or higher, or if they make at least 1-years growth on the middle of year diagnostic,  they will be eligible to be in casual dress for every Monday in the month of January. The only way they can hit the 5-hours for the month of December is to log on at home. Please ask your child how close they are to the 5-hour mark. We would love for every Monday in January to be a casual dress day for all students.


Early Release

Friday, December 21 is a scheduled Early Release day. All students will be dismissed at 12:20pm.


Holiday Break

All students will be on Holiday Break from Monday, December 24th to Wednesday, January 2nd. All students will return to school on Thursday, January 3rd. I hope everyone enjoys this time with their loved ones.


MAV Sheets

Please continue monitoring your child’s MAV Sheet nightly. This behavior management system serves to provide immediate positive feedback to our students while addressing areas in need of improvement. At times, the MAV sheets will also contain important pieces of information for you and your family.


Upcoming Events

  • Friday, December 21: EARLY RELEASE
  • Monday, December 24 - Wednesday, January 2: NO SCHOOL Holiday Break
