Dear Mount View Learning Community,
Summer is here and students have left the building. It is very quiet around here as I finish my remaining tasks for the year before heading out for vacation. My hope is that families are spending time together exploring our community and enjoying new adventures. The relaxed days of summer provide ample time for families to bond and do things that the scheduled days of the school year don’t allow.
There are many opportunities for learning during the long relaxed days of summer which will help students pick up where they left off when they return in the fall. Encourage your child to read, write in a journal, play board games, help with the family budget and explore new places. Summer is a time for your child to play, imagine, socialize and embrace the rich culture found at home. All of these activities contribute to brain development and learning.
When school begins in the fall, there will be many opportunities for families to continue to be involved in our school and your child’s education. We will be offering Family Education workshops, Positive Discipline for Parents, Coffee Hours and Family Learning Nights throughout the year. There is a newly formed Parent/Teacher Association (PTA) and I encourage you to join and help support our school goals for student learning. There are numerous ways to volunteer in classrooms, the office, in the cafeteria and on the playground. Our Family Liaison, Jackie Alvarez, can help you find ways to be a part of Mount View!
August will be here before we know it and there are a few dates to keep in mind:
Kindergarten Jump Start August 15-19 9:10 – 12:10pm
Class Lists Posted August 26 4:00pm
Open House – Meet Your Teacher August 30 4:00 – 6:00pm
Curriculum Night September 22 6:30 – 8:00pm
The supply lists and uniform requirements can be found on our website. Please remember that Mount View is a uniform school. If your child has outgrown uniform clothing, feel free to donate to the school!
I hope you have a fabulous summer and enjoy your children! I will look forward to seeing them in the fall.
Take care.
Lisa Escobar, Principal

  • Community-led Bond Slated for November Ballot

    A community-led plan for a school construction bond will go before voters in November. The $299 million bond would replace deteriorating schools, ease overcrowding and make safety improvements at all schools. A community advisory committee developed the bond package. The school board fully accepted the committee’s recommendation and voted to place the measure on the November ballot.
