Help us Make 3@MTV a Success
Mt. View School is implementing a ‘3 at MTV’ goal asking all families to volunteer at leastthree hours during the 2013-14 school year to help make our school a better place to be. Volunteer opportunities can be in classes supporting during a literacy block, reading to individual students, providing math help, or helping staff with ‘take home projects’ which can be completed outside of a traditional school (or parent’s work) day. We look forward to recording and reporting on the number of volunteer hours each month! If you would like to learn more about volunteer activities, please email: email@example.com . Check back often on our school website for volunteer opportunities.
Thank you to all of our volunteers for making our school a better place to learn!

Mountain View Mission Statement
Our mission at Mountain View School is to work as a team consisting of school staff, parents, students, and the community to develop responsible citizens, foster a love of learning, and ensure students achieve at their highest academic potential.
All team members will be informed of required curriculum and expectations through ongoing communication. To promote student success, all team members will make learning a priority and actively and consistently monitor progress. Two-way communication between family and school will ensure success for each child.
All team members will teach, model, and reinforce REACH expectations each day. This will help promote a safe and caring learning environment. At Mt. View School, we realize when we work together; we will make decisions which are in the best interest of all our students.
Mt. View will again be partnering with School Readiness to host a free 0-5 year old playgroup.If you know someone who has a ‘future Mt. View Student” aged 0-5 please share this information with them. Children and parents will have the opportunity to play together, count, learn letters, sort objects, and complete projects in a fun and enriching way. If you would like to participate in the playgroup, you are asked to call the school at 860-584-7726 so your child’s name and space will be held.
Visitors are asked to enter through our front door (by the flag pole) and first sign in at our main office.
Principal's Office Hours
In an effort to support ongoing communication, Mr. Huber will have two Principal's Office Hours each month. No appointment is necessary. Any family or community member is invited to stop in for a cup of coffee and discuss issues related to Mt. View School. Your thoughts and feedback are important as we continually work to improve the learning for everyone at Mt. View School. These two meeting times are informal ways to increase dialogue and to simply talk about our school and ways to make it better. As always, if there are questions or concerns you have, meetings can usually be scheduled within 24 hours. Thanks to all of our families for working collaboratively making Mt. View School a great place to learn!
