6/3 Principal Message

Mt. Vernon Parents/Guardians,


We will continue our testing on Monday, June 3rd. It is important for all of us to have conversations with our students on trying their best on the End of Grade assessments (EOGs) and the North Carolina Final Exams (NCFEs). The schedule for Monday and Tuesday

  • Monday, June 3: Science EOG and NCFE
  • Tuesday, June 4: Social Studies NCFE
  • Wednesday, June 5: EOG and NCFE Makeup day

The only true “Test Prep” that we would like our students to do for this testing period is to get a good night sleep. It is so important that our students are well-rested for these exams to demonstrate the growth that they have made this year. Mt. Vernon will be providing a hot breakfast for all students on these days.

Our end of year celebration dates and times have been scheduled. We would love to see as many families here as possible to celebrate the 2018/19 school year and to celebrate the arrival of summer.

  • 8th-grade and Boosters Celebration: Monday, June 10: 11:00am
  • 6th/7th-grade Celebration: Monday, June 10: 1:30pm

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.
