Mohawk Valley News

We may be small in size, but there are always many activities happening here on our campus. We want to keep you informed about what’s going on—that’s why we’ve put a news page here on our site. We will update this site with information and events you need to know about. Check back frequently so you are always “in the know.”

Fall Festival

This year's festival will be on Wednesday, October 25 from 6:00–9:00 p.m. We would love your help and are seeking parent volunteers to help make this event a success. Please contact Gina Rodriguez or Misty Harris for additional details. We also ask parents to please sign up with your child’s teacher to work at the booth assigned to your class.

We are currently seeking donations for the following items:

  • 2-liter sodas
  • Baked goods
  • Bags of candy
  • Donations for bingo prizes

Fall Festival BBQ

You don't want to miss out on the fantastic food at this year's festival! We will serve BBQ from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the festival on October 25. Tickets are only $6.00 for a plate of BBQ meat, beans, rice, and a tortilla. You can purchase your tickets today from any 8th grade student or in the school office.

Classroom Technology

We are happy to say that we have a computer for every student in grades 3-8. It is so cool to see our students working on computers and using technology effectively. Please note that we monitor computer use carefully at all times.

School Attendance

Regular school attendance is very important for your child’s academic growth. We encourage you to send your child to school regularly, on time, and well rested so he/she has a fair chance to learn. We will enforce attendance policies as needed.

Engineers In Training

For the second summer, engineering has come to life for middle school students in Yuma County. "The University of Arizona-Yuma has put together an amazing engineering camp for students going into the eighth grade," said Shanna Johnson, superintendent of Mohawk Valley Schools.

The camp brings students from far east Yuma County schools so they can experience engineering concepts and teamwork, and this was the second year for bringing in students from the same schools, said Dr. Samual Peffers, who heads up University of Arizona-Yuma's Department of Systems and Industrial Engineering. Students come from Dateland, Tacna, and Wellton.
