WBCH offers this space to area school superintendents to highlight news in their districts. This posting is from Maple Valley Superintendent Michelle Falcon.
“THANK YOU! - I cannot put into words how proud I am of the Maple Valley Schools staff. You truly have shown professionalism and dedication to our students. Digital Learning Day demonstrated how a team of adults can pull together to create an extraordinary opportunity for our students. It is so rewarding to see students and staff enjoy learning.
Of course this day would not have been possible without the DeCamp's generous grant and the hours of organization by our technology department. Tracy and Josh did an amazing job with every aspect of the plan. Thank you so much for making a lasting impression on all involved!
Attendance - As you are aware we are deep into the cold/flu season. We have been carefully watching staff and student attendance as a district to determine if school should be cancelled. We have not dipped into the low 80 percentages daily to warrant a closing. Rest assured we continue to monitor our rates each day.
Author coming to the district - We will have Jennifer Strauss who is a Michigan author, come to the district to talk with students. She will be in the district March 22-24.
Bond Update - We are finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. Please know that contractors will be on campus working feverishly during Spring Break to get the loose ends done.
I have been reviewing our district's progress over the past 4 years. The DIT team will be sharing some significant positive growth with you in the next couple of months. There is so many things we should celebrate and be proud of. Again, thank you staff ---- so proud to be a LION!”
