Special Request from Our Principal, Dr. Garriss: 

Dear Families, 
We would greatly appreciate it if you would please complete the Georgia Parent Survey that factors into our School Climate Rating Score and College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI). Below is information and the link to the survey. Please fee free to complete it at home. Many thanks to you and your support for our incredibly wonderful new school! 

Georgia Parent Survey
The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone or tablet. All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as paret of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below. 

Georgia Parent Survey:

Although there is no mandatory participation rate for the Georgia Parent Survey, schools that haveno participation in the survey will receive  0.0 score. Schools with less than 15 parent surveys will be designated as Low Participation (LP) and the results will not be calculated. Either way, no parent or low parent participation will negatively impact a school's School Climate Star Rating. 

Kind regards, 
Renee I. Garriss, Ed.D.

The MVE Reflections Committee thanks everyone who participated in this year's contest. There were so many wonderful entries and scores were extremely close! Unfortunately, only the top 4 entries in each division (k-2, 3-5) in each category were advanced.

Reflections requires a lot of effort from students and parents. An awards reception will be held in January to recognize and honor each participating student and their parents. We will email details in January and hope you will make plans to attend and cheer for all of our students. 

Please encourage your child to participate next year and we hope that they consider entering artistic pieces in multiple categories.
