Our campus goal is to have 100% participation from our parents/guardians with Parent Connection. We are close with just over 95% but we really hope to get 100% and ensure parents know how to use it to assist with their student's success. To help get everyone signed up with an account, and make sure parents are aware of all the ways it can assist with monitoring student progress - we are hosting a Parent Connection - Get Connected Event on Thursday Nov. 13th from 5:30-7:30 in the school library.
Today's football "A" games vs. Pease - both the 7th grade at Pease and the 8th grade at Vale have been cancelled and there will be no make up games. This decision is based on weather conditions and the conditions of the football fields, and serious consideration for the athletes and spectators safety. Basketball tryouts begin on Monday Nov. 10th and more information on tryouts can be found on the athletics page.
Thanks to Representative Trey Martinez-Fischer, and Google, the 8th grade students at Vale MS were treated to an internet safety presentation called "You are what you share." This presentation, lasting approximately 45 minutes, showed students the importance of internet safety and being responsible on social media and the internet. Five main tips were shared with the students which are: 1. Think before you share, 2. Protect your stuff, 3. Know and use your settings, 4. Avoid scams and 5. Be Positive.
