Monday Monitor

September 8, 2020

What a morning we had!  We welcomed students with gusto, balloons and goodies!

It is an incredible blessing to see all your children!

We have 80 full time students in house!

We have 6 part time students in house!

We have 6 Live! Online students!

That’s a total of 92 students!

The Upper School’s (7th-12th grades) opening assembly heard Dr. Schwamb expound on the meaning of “flex” and our ’20-’21 school verse.  He challenged everyone to “Flex Your Faith” in all parts of life: Academics, social, sports, home, and everywhere. The Lower School (PK-6th grades) assembly introduced 24 new students!  We too learned about our verse and theme.  I challenged our younger students to be fair, kind, and humble.  

Please be in prayer!

Head of School

Help needed:

Joe and Cheyenne Gordon need help getting their children to school this year.  They begin work at 7:45 and 7:30, respectively.  They live in Hartford Village on Route 14, near the Post Office.  They have 2 children: Annabella (4th grade) and Alexzandria (3rd grade).  The children could be picked up anytime after 7:30; the girls can stay home alone for a short time while waiting for pickup, if necessary. They are willing to help with paying for gas.

Contact Joe at 802-291-6959 or email gordonj@hartfordschools.net

Thanks to Mrs. Fullerton, Miss Pine, and Mrs. Peets for organizing a Prekindergarten-2nd Grade Open House last week! This evening really encouraged our young students and their families – they toured their classrooms, met their new classmates, and enjoyed refreshing popsicles together! We look forward to teaching these “Elementary Eagles” this year and are excited to see how the Lord grows them in doing justice, loving kindness, and walking humbly with their God!

Many MVCS community members assisted with projects around our campus this summer, including some of our wonderful “Elder Eagles!” Thank you Anna Loiselle, Raven Bryant, Sydney Goodwin, Hayley Goodwin, and Abel Goodwin!
