    What a whirlwind last week was with our celebration of reading!  Aside from our theme days, we also had our Book Fair which was a huge success!  Thank you to all the families for your support and for bringing books into the home.  Reading is a great alternative to "screen" time.  One way to keep the excitement for reading going strong is to get involved as a family in our Together We Can Read school-wide project for the book Holes by Louis Sachar. We would really like to increase  family particpation in our online book conversation as we read.  There is a blog set up to share your thoughts, wonders, and reflections as we read. Please check the virtual backpack for instructions for signing up to our blog.  Let's get reading!  
    Thankful Thursday
    Check out my Twitter feed @MVS_Principal to see what we are feeling thankful for today. During the fall/winter holiday season we are so aware of being appreciative and expressing our gratitude.  What if we kept that same feeling going all year long? With that thought in mind, each week on Thursdays, we've created a new Twitter hashtag to show our gratitude weekly.  Please join us by including the hashtag #mvsthankfulThurs on your tweets.  Every Thursday, grab a whiteboard or a piece of paper to write your thanks and hold it up for a picture, selfie or video. Be sure to include @MVS_Principal as well as #mvsthankfulThurs in your tweet.
    All children residing within Middletown Township, who will be 5 years old on or before October 1, 2018 are eligible for enrollment in the District for the 2018-19 school year.  Kindergarten registration is done online.  For additional information, please visit the District website at www.
    Please be sure to check the virtual backpack for updated information including next year's school calendar. Having that information now will help you plan special family activities that do not affect your child's school attendance. 
      Mrs. Zupancic 
     As referenced at Back to School Night, our Standard Based Report Cards (SBRC) were revised to better meet the needs of our community,  and become a valuable home-school connection tool.  Please take a look at the letter in this week's virtual backpack, as well as viewing the Report Cards and Rubrics posted to the district website under the Parents tab.    There's a Q & A sheet posted as well that provides background information on SBRC, as well as identifying the revisions made.  
    Students are to be in their classrooms ready to the start the day at 8:55am.  If you child is going to be absent from school, please be sure to call in his/her absence prior to the start of the school day.   You can leave a message on the school's voicemail, following the prompts to the absence line, 24 hours a day. When your child returns to school, please send in a note with the reason for the absence.  All notes into school are to include your child's first and last name, classroom teacher's name, message and your signature. Please remember that  school attendance is critical for learning growth.
