Our PTO/PAC Needs Your Help

Dear Mt. View Families,

The future of the Mt. View PTO/PAC (Parent Advisory Council) is up to you! As always, all positions will be up for nominations during the September 24, 2014 PTO/PAC meeting. Without your help, there would not be a PTO/PAC to do all the great things that are done for the kids.

There is so much to be gained by having a PTO/PAC in place. This volunteer organization helps with many school functions, raises money through fundraisers, and assists school staff in many ways. Everyone has different ideas, and bringing them all together is what makes it so successful. Below is a brief description of each position:

  • President is responsible for coordinating the many facets of the PTO/PAC sponsored events and running meetings. He or she communicates often with school staff and oversees the collaborative efforts between the parents, teachers, and school staff.
  • Vice President assists the President in the same duties as needed.
  • Secretary takes meeting minutes and presents them at the next meeting, forwards them along to the principal to blog, and also maintains the correspondence for our email.
  • Treasurer handles the money, does the check writing and presents a monthly budget at the meetings.
  • Enrichment Coordinator books educational and fun assemblies for the kids.
  • Box Tops Coordinator gathers box tops which have been sent in by the MTV families, records valid box tops by teacher, sends Box Tops and Labels for Education to the correct facility for redemption.
  • PRE-K through 5th Grade Parent Representatives: To give each family a voice in decisions made at school, we are adding parent grade level representatives. These family members serve as liaison to the grade levels for field trip communication, updates on what is taking place in individual classes, and contact person for the families in each grade level. These members also attend monthly meetings and support the overall efforts of our PTO/PAC.
  • Yearbook staff- Helps the Yearbook Coordinator with taking pictures at the many events MTV holds throughout the year.


As always, everyone is welcome and encouraged to come to the meetings!

If you have questions, please email or call the school directly. Once again, our school needs your help to support our PTO/PAC as well as participate in the volunteer opportunities offered through 3@MTV.


We look forward to seeing you at our 1st PTO/PAC meeting of the year – Tuesday, September 23, 2014 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the library.

One School, THREE books!

This year, as a school, we will be reading The Mouse and the Motorcycle Series by Beverly Cleary. Students in grades 3-5 will receive a 3-book set to keep here at school. Each Grade 3-5 class will be paired with a K-2 classroom and once a week, students will meet to read a chapter from the designated book with their reading buddies. Students will become familiar with the main character, Ralph S. Mouse, and will be able to discuss the actions of this character across texts.

Shown below are students in Mrs. Palaia's kindergarten class with students in Miss Rutkowski's 3rd grade class buddy reading today.
