Dear Parents, As Days


What a wonderful celebration we enjoyed with the missions team shar-
ing pictures and stories of what God did on their trip to Guatemala. The
whole school was attentive and responsive to the student's presenta-
tions. This is one of the ways MVCA wants to have as a target for our Upcoming Dates:
mission and purpose. Serving others and sharing the good news of the
Gospel is our primary focus as a school. This was a great picture of Blacktail Ski Day: Thursday
why we strive each day to provide a quality Christ centered education
and develop lifelong servant leaders. Feb. 16

Speaking of service, we are constantly amazed at the ways you par-

Tomorrow the school will be taking place at Blacktail Mountain for an all
day PE event. If you are not a skier or snowboarder, please come and
bring your sleds to enjoy a day in the snow. This family outing is an in-
tentional way we can spend time together improving our skills on the
hill and encouraging others to enjoy this uniquely Montanan experi-
ence. It's even fun just to drink hot chocolate and munch on snacks in
the lodge while others are exploring the mountain. Please join us for
this fun and enjoyable day!

We have only had five families take the survey http://


eprovesurveys.advanc-ed.org/surveys/#/action/15407/38136 and are
hoping for at least half of you to respond. Please take this five minute
survey to help us improve as a school. Let me know if you have ques-
tions or problems logging into the site. I can make this available at Par-
ent Teacher conferences next Monday as well. Thanks for investing in
MVCA!!

Blessings,
