Dear MVCS family and Friends,
We are heading into a busy week. We have our June Association Meeting and Graduation. We also have a week of teacher inservice. I need to prepare to preside or be present at all. We also have 5 seniors graduating, some of them will be giving a speech or reading Scripture. These are opportunities to be anxious!
What do you do when you face a challenge and are anxious? This morning as I was reading God’s Word, He reminded me that He cares for me and to be anxious for nothing. Yet it was the beginning of the verse that truly gave me peace. 1 Peter 5:6-7 says “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” We (I) need to humble ourselves and recognize that all of our life, even speeches, are filtered through His mighty hand. Please be praying for all activities this week, and for good weather on Saturday morning.
God bless you,
Head of School

Open Positions – Spread the Word!
We are currently looking for a Jr/Sr High Math teacher, a part-time Spanish teacher, and a part-time 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
Graduation time is here again! Even with all of the the COVID-19 hoopla, the time has still sped by. I miss the end of school activities – Grandparents’ Day, the Elementary Spring Program, Field Day, and all of those things that make school “school.” I appreciate all of you teachers, parents, and students who have been tipped upside down and by the grace of God have finished the year strong. My hat goes off to all of you – good job and well done!
The Spring turkey season ended yesterday in both VT and NH. Now we move right into Black Fly season. The buzzing in your ears, that pin prick when one flies in your eye, the biting, itching, scratching – you know the routine. Then everyone runs inside, 6 feet apart of course!
A mom asked her young daughter why she thought it was best to be quiet in church. The toddler replied, “Because everyone is sleeping!”
Have a great week and a wonderful summer!
Little Nest News
3rd and 4th graders celebrated “Wonder Day” last week! From Miss Blessing: The 3rd/4th scholars chose questions they were truly curious about, questions that lit their brains on fire! Then they each spent time investigating the question, followed by sharing discoveries with the world on their blogs. From making elephant toothpaste or doll furniture to investigating the history of Legos or ballet, each topic is fascinating. The students’ inquiry skills are growing this year!
Senior Elliot Renninger finished his Eagle Scout and Independent Art Project this weekend – way to go, Elliot! What an awesome opportunity, we are encouraged by all your hard work!

- Zachary & Ashley (Wilson) McLaughlin had twins on May 26th – Frederick Enon and Scarlett Marie. Ashley graduated from MVCS in 2010. They also have a 3-1/2 year old daughter, Juliette. Congratulations to them!
- 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!
- Pray for families to find time to recoup during summer, that we all may come back refreshed and ready to serve our Upper Valley community together!
Have a Blessed Summer!!!
