Our Community Partnerships

rehabilation_20200113-234650_1
As we stand on the threshold of a new decade, we at MV schools are fortunate enough to do so as a part of a community. Our community of local businesses, family farmers, and area government officials stand with us and are poised to invest in our students moving forward, just as they have in the past.

For years, our local businesses have provided opportunities for MSDMV students to take the knowledge they gain in the classroom and apply it in the field. These companies work hand in hand with our business department to provide students with internships and field experience. These experiences not only allow students the opportunity to experience their future career, but to experience it locally, greatly increasing the chances that our graduates will stay in our community. Last school year (2018-19), and the 1st semester of this year (2019-20), students involved in the Career Intern program at MVHS, interned at these Mt. Vernon businesses and companies: Tanner Engineering, RPI, Posey Co. Prosecutor's Office, Pacific Coast Details, Grow Marketing Solutions, Posey County Economic Development Corporation, Hovey Lake Fish & Wildlife Conservation, Studio B, Astrazeneca, CVS Pharmacy, CountryMark Marketing, Bliss Artisan and Hawthorne's Animal Hospital. Additionally, these local businesses contributed greatly when our students and staff members worked with 14News to collect canned goods for the Tristate Food Bank. Not only did this event benefit the food bank, it brought the community together with a shared goal.

Another facet to our community is the strong network of local farmers. These farmers have been instrumental in developing our future agricultural leaders by working directly with The Future Farmers of America to share valuable knowledge and offer hands on opportunities. Local farmers such as Chris Kaufman with Kaufman Farms have invested a great deal of time speaking with MVHS students and educating them on the intricacies of the industry. Finally, a community isn't complete without its government leaders, and we are so fortunate to have leaders who are willing to work directly with our schools.

So as you can see, we do not enter this new decade in isolation, but as part of a growing and thriving community that is so much greater than the sum of its parts. We look forward to continuing our partnerships and creating new ones, supporting our learners and educators, and creating lasting bonds in this community we call home. #WeAreMV

Choose MV Schools

Positive School Culture and Climate
The Metropolitan School District of Mt. Vernon is dedicated to providing a safe, caring, positive, cooperative, pleasant, and challenging learning environment with high expectations for all students. Every school has its own home-school advisors, counselors, and nurses. Students in our district have access to a full array of services for special needs students, as well as programs for special needs students, as well as programs for coping with behavioral, social, academic, or other life stressors.

Technology-Infused Learning Environments
Driving the achievement, the MSDMV sits at the forefront of cutting-edge technology-based education. Technology is heavily integrated into the instructional process across all grade levels. State of the art hardware, infrastructure, applications, and software presented by tech-savvy teachers allows each student to have unique, real-world experiences that combine the use of technology with basic skills instruction. As a result, our students experience higher levels of engagement and academic achievement. Currently, our school district has a 1:1 technology initiative in place at MVJHS and MVHS, with plans to expand to all grade levels.

Responsive School-Community Relations
MSDMV is proud to have highly qualified, responsive teachers and results oriented administrators. The staff of MSDMV firmly believes two-way, open communication and maintaining positive parent-teacher-student relationships. Our district is focused on professional development and continued growth of all students and staff. Furthermore, the recognition of student and staff achievement is a priority in our schools. In addition to a strong social media presence on Facebook, MSDMV and its students and employees are committed to on-going community involvement.

Principal's Message

West Family Members:

That is a phrase your child will hear a lot this year at West Elementary. We certainly know it is true. For kids, like adults, the future is made by the present. We know, for instance, that a student’s success in high school can be directly traced to his/her success in elementary school. It is a long-standing economic fact that the more education a child has, the greater his/her lifetime earnings will be. For us at West, we see it as a critical component of our job to help students – even those in the early grades – begin thinking about life after high school.

We are going to prioritize this idea in a variety of ways this year. For our 5th graders, we will likely have a field trip later in the year to the University of Southern Indiana and/or the University of Evansville, giving students the opportunity to see a college campus and envision themselves as a part of it. Further, one of the parent programs we’ll hold this Fall will feature a bank official who will help parents begin planning and saving for their child’s post-secondary education. Stay turned for more details on these and other exciting programs.

We strongly encourage West families to reinforce with your student that their tomorrow begins today. We want all of West’s children to be engrained with the idea that high school will not be the end of their education. As the principal, I want every West student to walk through the halls of this school embracing the idea that “I am going to go to college, trade school, etc…”

I ask all West’s families to partner with us on this important mindset.
  • Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures: As in previous years, students may be dropped off at West’s front entrance no earlier than 7:30 a.m. Students can be picked up after school by following the traffic flow in front of the building. For the safety of students, visitors, and staff, we ask that you remain in your vehicle and let one of our staff members escort your child to the vehicle.
  • Student Breakfast and Lunch: The cost of a student breakfast is $1.25, while lunch is $1.95. As in previous years, students may deposit money in their cafeteria account.
  • While every school year is different from the one before it, you will notice a few new things here at West this year. By the first day of school, our playground will have a new blacktop and play areas for students. We also will continue to explore a partnership with the University of Southern Indiana to bring a foreign language program of some sort to West; a program which has been shown to dramatically raise student achievement in a variety of ways.
You will see any number of new faces on the West staff this year, faces we hope you and your student will get to know over the course of the school year.

On behalf of our staff, I want to welcome you and your student to a new school year here at West. We once again look forward to partnering with you to help make your child’s tomorrow everything it can be.

Sincerely,
Amanda Wilson
West Elementary School

Principal's Message

Thank you for visiting the Farmersville Elementary Website! We appreciate your interest in our school and extend a friendly welcome to you! Farmersville is a small, rural community school, serving students in grades K – 5, including moderate special education students. We have two sections of classes at each grade level. Our teachers and support staff are excellent in knowledge, instruction, compassion, and dedication to helping children!
We believe:
  • Learning content, skills, and processes will enable our students to be successful in subsequent years of schooling and in life.
  • Engaging children in motivating, life-connected activities that are aligned with important learner goals is essential.
  • Promoting a school culture of trust, cooperation, respect, and recognizing the hard work of students and staff brings forth the best in all and encourages parent involvement. It also promotes our professional renewal, continuous growth, and attitude of "As good as we are, we can always get better."
We accept that we do not control all factors that affect the teaching/learning process. However, we do realize a strong influence on many of these factors. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to educate your child! We take that responsibility seriously and value your partnership.

Most sincerely,
Dr. Elizabeth Johns , Principal
