2023-2024 Student/Staff Calendar

On April 19, 2023, the Mount Vernon School District Board of Directors approved the Students/Staff calendar for the 2023-2024 academic year. The district greatly appreciates the support of our labor partners who contributed in developing the calendar. It is important to note that this work is separate from the district's ongoing initiative and exploration regarding the Student Focused Balanced Calendar work.  You will notice that the first day of school will be before Labor Day weekend.

Ask a Student - Mental Health

As you all know, these last two years have been difficult for all of us, including all of our students. When the pandemic first hit, I made a #askastudent video on how students were doing during quarantine (which feels like a lifetime ago). 


Emotions Video

Here is the latest creation from my class, The Emotions Rap! We focused on emotions for this song because we've all been experiencing plenty of them lately and this song helps to process those emotions a bit. This song encourages kids (and adults) to not view feelings in a negative light, but to consider what it would be like if we only had a few emotions and how less colorful the world would be in that case. Emotions are actually very helpful and can guide us more than we think.
