BWXT's $25,000 Donation Ignites Future Welding Talent at MVHS in memory of John Haynes

BWXT

In a tribute to the memory of John Haynes, BWXT has generously donated $25,000 to Mount Vernon High School's welding program. John Haynes and General Manager, Nate Foote, have played pivotal roles in establishing this program at the high school, which is staffed by BWXT employees and offers students a unique opportunity to gain hands-on welding experience. With the help of BWXT employees, the program offers students an exceptional opportunity to develop valuable welding skills and gain real-world experience. The curriculum covers a wide range of welding techniques, safety protocols, and industry standards, ensuring that students receive comprehensive training.

The program stands out with its direct link to BWXT, offering a clear pathway for students to transition from the classroom to a career. This unique collaboration between the high school and a prominent industry player like BWXT not only prepares students for the workforce but also addresses the growing demand for skilled welders in the manufacturing sector.

BWXT's donation of $25,000 to Mount Vernon High School's welding program is a powerful testament to their commitment to education and the improvement of the community. This generous contribution will have a profound impact on the program, allowing it to invest in state-of-the-art welding equipment, safety gear, and additional educational resources.

BWXT's involvement with the MSD of Mount Vernon is more than just philanthropy; it's a partnership that fosters growth, learning, and real-world opportunities. We extend our deepest gratitude to BWXT for their visionary support and commitment to nurturing the next generation of skilled welders.

New Beginnings

New Beginnings



As the days get shorter and the air becomes crisper, we know that we are settling into a new school year at Farmersville!  A new school year can mean changes, which bring a lot of new friends and faces into our school!  

This fall we have said goodbye to Mrs. Koressel and Nurse Dixon. They have both moved onto exciting new opportunities for them and we wish them the best!  That means we have said welcome to some new faces as well!  We have had a few weeks with Mrs. Denning as our new school secretary and she is settling in very quickly and learning her new job and all of the new faces.  We will welcome our new nurse in a few weeks when she finishes up her current job at a local hospital, but she is excited to be a falcon as well!  

Over the summer, we also welcomed some new teachers and had some teachers move to new roles within the building.  Mrs. Lefler left first grade and is now our RTI Interventionist.  Miss Wargel left STEM and is now a first grade teacher! They are both excited to be in their new classrooms this year.  In special education, we have welcomed Mr. Turner as a new teacher. We also welcomed Miss Hoehn as a new TA in our special education department. In STEM, we now have Mr. Weaver who has quickly adjusted to a brand new position. He is anxious to begin working with our high ability students as well.  Miss Mintner is our new PE teacher and has at least as much energy as the kids do! She has been a perfect fit for our Falcons. 

We look forward to settling into a new routine with our new Falcons and can’t wait to see what this year will bring!

Welcome Back!

Fvx1vs-WYAEy2h_20230802-165648_1

Welcome back to an exciting new school year! I hope you and your families had a restful and enjoyable summer. As we prepare to embark on this academic journey, I am thrilled to share some fantastic news with you – our school district has been officially STEM Certified by the Indiana Department of Education!

This remarkable achievement reflects our unwavering commitment to providing the highest quality education to our students. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education plays a pivotal role in preparing our young learners for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. Through a dynamic and innovative curriculum, we are dedicated to nurturing critical thinking, problem-solving skills, creativity, and a love for exploration within each child.

This prestigious certification is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our exceptional teachers, staff, and students. It would not have been possible without the strong support and collaboration from our parents and local community partners. Your involvement and engagement in your child's education make all the difference, and we are deeply grateful for your continued partnership.

As we enter this new school year, we remain committed to fostering a safe and inclusive learning environment where each student can thrive and grow. We will continue to implement the best practices in education, incorporating innovative teaching methods and technologies to make learning engaging and relevant.

I am excited about the possibilities that this school year holds, and I look forward to witnessing the growth and achievements of each and every student in our district. I encourage our students to take advantage of our many extracurricular offerings to help enhance their educational experience.

Notice: Free Meals for All Students

School-Cafe-3.2

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved all schools to offer free lunch to all students regardless of income. Those schools that offer breakfast will be able to offer free breakfast to all students as well. This means students will receive their meals for FREE this school year.
Some things to keep in mind:

• Students must take the required components to make a reimbursable meal in order for it to be free. How students make a reimbursable meal will be posted/displayed in the cafeteria or during meal delivery. The cashier or other school staff will help students take a full reimbursable meal.
• If students purchase extras (such as a bottled drink) available in the serving line, a la carte (such as a singular milk or entree), snacks from vending machines, etc., the student will be charged for these items. If your student intends to purchase items other than a meal, please make sure there are adequate funds on their account.
• Nothing needs to be sent to the school in order to have a student receive meals for free. Free meals are automatically offered to all students regardless of income.
• Families that believe they would qualify for free and reduced meals normally, should still submit a free meal application as this can help with qualifying for other assistance programs for the family and student. Benefits from completing applications stretch far beyond the cafeteria and impact students in the classroom and at home. All information submitted in these applications is private and confidential.

MSDMV students show growth in Reading and Math

118787125_3947310335285632_6329530864540415509_o

Greetings!

It was exciting to have our students return to the buildings this week as we begin the second semester. Safety protocols will continue for the remainder of the year and may be adjusted upon guidance from the state or county health department. We anticipate disruptions again this semester due to Covid-19. However, the MSD of Mount Vernon is still committed to providing in-person education as much as possible for the remainder of the school year. 

Despite various disruptions due to quarantine our students performed well overall during the 1st semester. Academically, the @i-Ready diagnostic indicates our students experienced 76% median growth in reading and 66% median growth in math. At this time of year 50% median growth is expected. Athletically, our high school fall sports had an excellent season. Artistically, our fall play was wonderful and our band and choir sounded just as good as ever. Like many of you I wish we could have larger crowds to enjoy our students’ accomplishments. Until larger crowds are possible we will continue streaming many of our events through Facebook or the MVHS Athletic website

We look forward to another semester of success!

FREE Breakfast and Lunch Meals for ALL Students - Extended!

spoon-2426623__340

ALL breakfast and/or lunch meals will continue to be available at NO CHARGE to ALL MSD of Mt. Vernon students.

The USDA has announced that the emergency waiver which allows ALL students to receive a free breakfast and lunch each day at school has been extended through the end of the 2020-2021 school year.

What to Expect: We are not changing the daily menu, the food items offered, or the meal service experience. Students will select the minimum required items to create a meal, and that meal will ring up at no charge. Students can still pay for ala carte items, second entrees, or second meals at current pricing. Families can leave funds in student lunch accounts to be used next semester. To qualify for textbook assistance, though, eligible families must still complete a free or reduced application.

Virtual Students: Free Grab and Go meals will continue to be available to virtual students this semester. Contact your child’s school to make arrangements for pickup times.

We appreciate the flexibility allowed by the USDA to help our families, and we thank you for your continued support for Mt. Vernon Schools!
