3/25 Principal Message

Mt. Vernon Parents/Guardians,


We are in the final push towards Spring Break. It has been a pretty long stretch since our last sustained break in December. As a whole, the students of Mt. Vernon have continued to demonstrate the character traits that we would have hoped they would have. Over the next three weeks, continue to have conversations with your children around good choices and deep breaths. April 19th (Spring Break) will be here soon.


Tuesday, March 26 will mark the end of 3rd-quarter. Please have a conversation with your child regarding any missing work that they may have to submit to their teachers.


Report cards will be completed and mailed home on April 4. If you do not receive them in the mail by April 11, please contact the school.


Wake County’s Office of Equity Affairs is sponsoring a wonderful event for all male students of color from grades 3-12. The event is titled, “Choice not Chance: Wake Young Men’s Conference” and will be held on Saturday, April 6 @ East Millbrook Middle School. Here is the information. What a great opportunity for some of our students to know that success is right around the corner.  


On Wednesday, students will partake in a school-wide Career Fair. We will have representatives from a variety of careers. Please take a moment to discuss the fair with your children. Hopefully, this will continue to spark an interest in our kids for life beyond middle/high school.


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.
