FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.  Winston Churchill

ACADEMIC

Peer tutoring will start 10/18, but it's never too early to think about supporting our students. If your student would like tutoring and make a commitment to every Monday 2:45p-3:30pm, please have them pick up an application in the Counseling office. 7th & 8th graders can be tutors and those applications are available as well. Students will receive training and be supervised. They may also use peer tutoring for CJSF hours. 

MVHS tutoring will be available by mid October through crementum.org

PERSONAL/SOCIAL

If your family is experiencing difficulties at home, we would like to provide support at school. We understand that you are not always able to share details and that's okay. If your child is coming to school after a difficult night, morning or weekend, please text "Handle with Care" to 925-272-9639  Nothing else will be said or asked. This will let us know that your child may need extra time, patience or help during the day.
