MV kids participate in "Happy Kids Dentistry" painting event

On Saturday morning, I had the pleasure of participating with many MV kids in the Happy Kids Dentistry Parking Lot Painting event.
Our kids created and painted the majority of the design. Kinder through 5th grade all participated and did a fabulous job! 

Please follow the link (below) or go to Happy Kids Facebook page and please like, comment and share Mint Valley's painting. The school with the most points will win $500. You must click the original post from happy kids, you may comment and share as many times as possible.

The contest ends at the end of May.  (Erika Kessler)

Additional builders included fellow scout members Nigel Princehouse and Dacota Haynes. Our Mint Valley PTO helped to fund the supplies for this project. Dusten also received some donations from partners in the community!

Recently Dustin, with the help of his parents, delivered the picnic tables. Our "Students of the Week" were on hand to get a first look and thank Dusten!  The garden will get a picnic table along with three tables that
will become a welcome addition to our playground.

MV says thank you!




Bud Clary Subaru to donate a brand new bike and helmet to every 5th grader at MV with perfect attendance

Once again Bud Clary Subaru will donate a brand new bike and helmet to every 5th grade student at Mint Valley with perfect attendance. Perfect attendance means: NO Tardies, NO leaving school early, and NO missing days, even if they are excused.

At the end of the school year, Bud Clary Subaru will reward 5th graders who maintain perfect attendance with a BBQ for students and families. At the BBQ we will give you a new bike, helmet and a P.A.C.E. (Perfect Attendance Creates Excellence) certificate for your perfect attendance and hard work.
