Family Meet and Greet & Open Playground

You asked and we listened! Families are invited to an informal meet and greet outside on our back playground (weather permitting) on Tuesday August 26th from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. This is an opportunity for families to meet each other and play outside on the playground.  This is one of the recommendations of our spring parent survey last year.  Families are also invited to bring a bag lunch to enjoy outside as their children play. Cookies and juice will be provided.

We Did It!!!!!!!

Mt. View School came in first place for the 2014 Bristol Public Library Summer Reading Challenge.  Congratulations to everyone who participated. Mt. View Students read a total of 12.95 years or the equivalent of 4,728 days of reading. We are so proud of everyone’s effort.


This amount of time read represents the highest total ever in the summer reading contest history. This proves a small school can do great things! As a reminder, all students who participated (signed up at the library and recorded their minutes read) will have the chance to dunk Dr. Huber during the first two weeks of school. Once again, thanks to everyone who read – we are proud of this accomplishment.

Getting Ready to Return to School

We are just two weeks away from our return to school. Now is a great time for families to begin to transition students back into routines which will lead to a successful school year.  Part of this transition includes 'back-to-school bedtime routines.'

It is also a great time to continue teaching and modeling responsible behaviors. For a parent’s guide to teaching and developing responsible learners, please click here.

Thank you for partnering with us in the education of our students!

New 3rd Grade Teachers

Thank you to the 20 students and families who participated in today’s demonstration lessons for our new 3rd grade teaching positions. Over the past week 100 applications were reviewed leading to 20 phone interviews. Based on the results of the phone interviews, seven candidates were then interviewed by a team of Mt. View teachers to narrow down the pool of potential applicants. Finally finalists were asked to teach in a demonstration lesson which took place today. The final two candidates will now be moved forward to meet with the Superintendent before being hired as our newest staff at Mt. View School.
