Dear Students and Families:

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Mario Vigil, principal of Pojoaque Valley Sixth Grade Academy and Pojoaque Valley Middle School. I am a proud graduate of Pojoaque Valley Schools. I have dedicated the last 20 years to our district, both as a classroom teacher and as an administrator and am happy to serve our educational community in this capacity.

This is a year like no other. Although we will have some challenges, I also know that we will experience successes and triumphs along the way.  Our teaching staff is a resilient and dedicated group of individuals who believe in collaboration, building relationships, and making sure our students’ needs are met. I want every single student and family to know that we are here to offer our assistance and support along the way. This is a new journey for all of us and I thank you for your trust and patience with us as we navigate this new learning environment.

On this website, off to the right-hand side, you will see a link to our 6-8 grade virtual school portal. This is our “virtual school building.” Here, you will be able to find your teacher and the zoom link to their classes. It is a secure site, meaning you will only be able to access your classes through this site if you are logged in using your school account (email).

I am optimistic about this school year and I look forward to meeting you all in person soon!

Online Resources

Reading Plus
There is a new Reading initiative between the 7th and 8th Grade English Department and the company, Reading Plus. This program will be part of our Response to Intervention (RTI) goals to help our scholars improve reading fluency, stamina, and comprehension.  Please take a moment to review the information provided here to become more acquainted with this powerful tool designed to meet each individual’s scholar’s reading needs and interests.
Program Overview
In addition, your scholar can access this website at home and continue to proceed through their individualized reading program. The more they do, the more improvements will be seen. Most scholars have completed the initial Insight assessment, and this information is available to you online.  Please have your scholar log on at the following address, and select students. Their password is their Student ID number and their password is their last name.

Imagine Math
‘This is a great resource that we have been using in the classroom once a week. I am encouraging students to use this at home also. There is an app they can download for their smartphone which makes it more accessible. They each have their username and password so they can log in.  As they log on and complete lessons this will count towards their class grade. I am also giving an award and a prize per 9 week grading period to the student with the most points and lessons passed.
