Great News @ Mt. View School
If you see someone doing something great click here and let us know. This could be a random act of kindess, a good deed, or simply someone going above and beyond to help someone out. We want to recognize the hard work of our students, staff, and families that make our school a great place to be.
Do you know why we ask each family to read 20 minutes per night with their child? Research indicates spending 20 minutes each day over an elementary school career adds 60 full days of reading time. For more information, please click here.

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!
