Dear Citizens,   April 26, 2019
 
I can't believe we are approaching May already and the 2018-2019 school year is winding down.  I want to congraulate the Junior Class on a great prom two weeks ago! We really appreciate the hard work of the juniors along with Mrs. Hershey.  Also, special thanks to the Junior Parents for organizing the After Prom Event. 
 
I want to congratulate Mr. Novak, our Band/Music Director for being selected as the Mississinawa Valley Teacher of the Year! Mr. Novak will be recognized at a banquet hosted by Darke County ESC.  Congratulations to Mrs. Gwen Bergman for being selected as the Darke County Mentor of the Year Award winner too! 
 
Our students have been and are participating in the Year-End-Testing right now, and we appreciate all of their hard work.  We look forward in a few weeks when we receive each student's results.  We are in the process of screening students for Kindergarten next year, and if you need to register your son/daughter, please contact the office. 
 
Thanks 
 
Mr. Doug Dunham
Superintendent 
 
 
School Closings and Delays Mississinawa Valley has implemented the Instant Connect Voice Dial System which is a great asset for parents and staff. Parents and students are also encouraged to listen to the radio or TV stations for the latest school delays, early release or closing information. A decision to delay or close school is usually made by 6:15 a.m. Parents should make pre-arranged plans for unscheduled emergencies.
