Last night we were thrilled to celebrate the official ribbon cutting ceremony at our new Administrative Office, generously donated by Simmons Bank. Behind the stunning main building, we were gifted a spacious 1200 square foot storage facility. The main office building has 8 offices, a kitchen, a walk-in vault, a file room, and a conference room. The building sits next to Mountain View Elementary. Our district administrators meet almost weekly in this building. It is a place where dreams are nurtured, ideas are born, and futures are shaped. The central office plays a critical role in ensuring the effective operation of the entire school district. Simmons Bank has provided us with a stellar space to make all of this happen! Simmons Bank went above and beyond for the event, having the event catered by Petrova’s Pastries and Mixings. The evening was filled with joy, gratitude, and great food as we gathered with esteemed guests including our dedicated school board members, MVBT district administrators, the honorable Mayors of Birch Tree and Mountain View, a few of Simmons Bank’s employees, and our hardworking Central Office staff. In addition, Dr. Christensen, former Superintendent, was in attendance. Dr. Christensen and Steve Vines, Bank President, worked several months to finalize the details. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Simmons Bank for their incredible generosity and support.

LMS 8th Graders became teachers in American History. Students had to create their own lessons, notes, supplements, and assessments. Realizing how difficult and messy educating can be, students have walked away with a new respect for the profession of teaching! Mrs. Smith hopes a few of them will choose teaching as a career; some students have a natural gift!

Our Teacher of the Month for March is Mrs. Desi Smith, Special Education Teacher at Liberty High School! She was selected by her peers as an exemplary teacher! Below are all of the things that her peers had to say about her. -Mrs. Smith always has a warm disposition to students and staff. She makes everyone feel welcome and is always willing to lend a helping hand. -She is an amazing teacher. She is always willing to help anyone and everyone. -Mrs. Smith has taken on a new coaching role this year. On top of her regular case load, she has willingly given up her prep period during season to help her team be successful. She has also continued to give up her prep period for the remainder of the year to help fill a void that we have in 7th hour. This creates extra work on her part either before or after school and it is appreciated from my office. -Desi is wonderful at what she does. I never hear her complain about anything. She has a great attitude and is a great joy to work with. She is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. -Desi always has a positive attitude. She always has a smile on her face and is an extremely hard worker. -Mrs. Smith is a very dedicated teacher and spends a great deal of time working with her Sped students to ensure they receive instruction and support. Desi brought the District Title home for our basketball girls, and didn't skip a beat in her academic duties. Amazing teacher and mentor for our students. From ALL of us at MVBT, thank you, Mrs. Smith! We appreciate you!! Thank you Lois Wood and Beyond Blessed Creations for donating the basket!
