The VFW annually sponsors a writing competition for middle school students called the Patriot’s Pen. A patriotic subject is chosen by the VFW & the kids write an essay based on the established parameters. They can not get any help from their teachers or parents, that is one rule! On their own time, without help, and without it being a requirement for school, they write their essay & it is judged by a panel of people in the VFW organization. 1st place- Aurora Hulvey $200 & plaque 2nd place- Heidi Holderman $125 & certificate 3rd place- Olivia Jennings $75 & certificate All other participants received a certificate & a $5 prize. We appreciate the VFW sponsoring this annual competition & we are thrilled at how many students chose to do this elective essay!! 🇺🇸
Due to our extremely low attendance again today, we are canceling school tomorrow and Wednesday. There will be no school on Tuesday, December 13 and Wednesday, December 14. We will return to school on Thursday, December 15. The next two days are considered school days with alternative methods of instruction (AMI) to be completed at home.

MVBT is excited to announce November’s teacher of the month, Mrs. Rebecca, Smotherman, MVE second grade teacher Rebecca is a motivating, thoughtful, and meticulous educator. Mrs. Smotherman not only teaches her students academics, but she focuses life and coping skills. Her students are always up for a challenge because she has taught them that there is nothing too hard for them to accomplish. She always has a smile on her face and has a skill set that allows her to understand her students on a deeper level. We are thankful for Mrs. Smotherman!
