Principal’s Message

‘Tis The Season …

Posted: 12/17/2017

Dear Families,

I want to extend my gratitude for all that you do to partner with us throughout the school year. It truly takes a village to run all the programs that develop the whole-child. From – volunteering in classrooms, helping with the book fair and in the garden, serving on committees and attending district meetings … the list is endless and the thanks are many. May this Holiday Season be good to you and yours.

We are thankful for Mentor Me Petaluma, Shop With A Cop, and all the enrichment programs provided at MCCV, and mostly the steadfast care and concern that the teachers and staff provide for your child/ren every day. As we continue to Build Effective Schools Together (BEST) it is our commitment to you that safety, respect and responsibility remain the top three priorities in our school community. It is so important that as adults we model the behaviors we want to see in our youth and I appreciate us working together to ensure all students feel safe and respected at school.

We are looking forward to doing tours in January 2018. If you know of anyone who might want to consider MCCV as their school of attendance please share the following tour dates with them:

1.11.18 8:45-10:00 am K-3

1.17.18 8:45-10:00 am K-3

1.24.18 8:45-10:00 am K-8

1.24.18 6:00-8:00 pm Preview Night 6-8

Priority Registration will be open 12.18.17-2.22.18 for any NEW student to MCCV at any grade. Please make sure any interested parents come in to pick up a registration packet from the office. To be registered Step 1 must be completed to get registered. We will be date/time stamping them. If we become full, we will use the public lottery protocol per the charter petition. We hope to notify people of acceptance before spring break. Thank you for your cooperation with this procedure and we look forward to welcoming new and returning students in readiness for the 2018-2019 school year.

Winter Break will begin after our last full student day on 12.21.17. Dismissal will be at 1:30 pm for Kindergarten, 2:30 pm for grades 1-3, and 3:00 pm for grades 4-8. Thank you for extra attention to safety in the parking lot and on surrounding streets. Please make every effort to walk your child/ren across the streets and hold on to them as you cross traffic. Thank you for joining us in making this a priority.

In partnership always,

Fran Hansell Ed.D
