From the Office of the Principal
Welcome to Mt. View School – We are glad you are here! It is nice to see that spring is finally here and with that brings the warmer weather and longer days. We will soon begin the process of crafting class lists for next year. I wanted to share a quick reminder regarding requests for individual teachers for next year. At Mt. View School, families are invited to put in writing a learning environment in which they feel their child would be most successful. That information is considered when lists are being crafted; however, many factors go into creating class lists such as special education service hours, gifted and talented services, learning styles, and other student supports. Any requests must be submitted to the main office no later than Friday, May 3, 2013. Letters requesting specific teachers will not be honored. As a school, we put in countless hours to develop class lists that provide all students the greatest chance for success.
Thank you for continuing to support your child’s learning and development of academic responsibility by monitoring their reading log and homework. Building strong habits will only promote a positive transition for next year. We know we have only two months left of school, and within those two months will be a lot of learning.
For those parents who have visited during my office hours each month, I thank you. Through our collaborative conversations we can make our school a better place to be. For those parents who have not, I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you about our school and how we can continually improve upon our practices.
Have a great day -
