Dear MVCS family and friends,
Wow! This is week 8 of distance learning. How are you doing? I know I have my moments of stressing!
I am ever so grateful to the Lord for His guidance during this crazy time, especially from His Word. I have
been ruminating on Psalm 145 and now 146 for the last few weeks. What a blessing to be reminded to “Extol
you, my God and King” in the midst of this pandemic. How wonderful for our God to prompt me to “Praise
the Lord, O my soul!” When I bless Him and praise His name I forget for awhile about my concerns. Then, I
am able to place my concerns at His feet knowing He is in control.
I encourage you to read the Psalms, especially the beginning songs of worship and the ending anthems of
praise. Read them to your children, who are undoubtedly anxious and as tired of being cooped up as we are.
Help them to praise the Lord. Guide them to speak of their worries and to give them over to Jesus.
We are all (teachers, staff, and Board) praying for you! Hallelujah!
Head of School
MVCS Graduation Ceremony
Graduation will be held on June 6th at 10:00 am. It will be some sort of drive-in type event in the parking lot, with a dias in the portico. At this point in time, only 10 people can be out of cars, but there is talk of an increase to 25 on June 1st. If you are interested in helping with setup, have any ideas to make this day special, or have time to give to
build a platform dias so everyone in cars can see, please email Mrs. Fogg.
Our “Social Distance Drive Thru” was a major success! Thank you to everyone who joined us! Enjoy these photos below of just a few of the various students, parents, and teachers who joined us!
We are currently looking for a Jr/Sr High English teacher, a Math teacher, a Spanish teacher, and a PK/K Multigrade teacher. MVCS seeks dynamic teachers with demonstrated ability to integrate the Christian worldview into all that transpires in and out of the classroom. This person will work successfully with a range of students, be versed in research-based practices and subject matter for their specific position, and seek to become part of our learning community. Outstanding candidates will be motivated to encourage students to love the Lord and love to learn, and place a high value on communication with parents as we seek to partner with them.

Mr. Ralph’s Corner
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. It looks like the weather is finally starting to break for us! Can you believe this weekend is Memorial Day weekend already? They say you can plant your vegetables and annuals on Memorial Day weekend, but I think I will hold off another week. Something tells me we are not done with frosts yet!
I took off last Friday and did some turkey hunting and fishing. It was nice being in the woods amongst the trillium, squirrel corn, and hepaticus blossoms. I hit some beaver ponds, the White River, and Dewey’s Pond, and all I could come up with were a few little sunfish at Dewey’s Pond. Fishing is fishing. Sometimes you catch ’em and sometimes you don’t. Speaking of catching – I’m doing pretty well at our new place. I’ve caught 2 mice and 41 chipmunks! Do you know they kinda taste like chicken? Just kidding!
Have a great week and hope to see you soon!

HOP@Home Livestream Event
The HOP Center chose our school to be one of the ones involved in welcoming an online guest author this week! Author/illustrator Christopher Myers was supposed to come present at the HOP this spring, but he is doing live streaming readings of his books instead because of the stay at home order. Our friends at Dartmouth wanted some authentic questions from young people to use during the readings, so they asked some MVCS students to preview his three books and share questions. This author visit is part of their HOP@Home program, and all are invited. Linked below is the livestream for next week.
Praise and Prayer
- The “Social Distance Drive Thru” provided a venue for students, parents, and teachers to gather safely and fellowship with each other. Praise the Lord for opportunities to care for our community during this unsettling time.
- Our MVCS community has been sustained health-wise through the VT and NH stay at home orders – praise God that there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 amongst our families and staff members!
- COVID-19 has completely altered the lives of so many around the world – pray with us that people would be drawn to Jesus in this time and find a yoke that is easy and a burden that is light!
- Our eldest eagles will be flying the MVCS nest in almost two weeks – pray with us for our five seniors as they make big decisions about next year and beyond!
- Pray for our MVCS families who have one or both parents working, that they would be strengthened and find time to bond.
