Spring Break celebration book fair
Please sign up here to volunteer for our Bookworm Central bookfair coming March 9th - March 13th. Bookworm Central is a local company that provides quality literature. We need your support. Please join us! It is an exciting week for the students, who love to see their parents helping out in the library. Currently, we have some sessions with only one parent signed up to help. The students love the fair, but the younger ones will struggle a bit.

5th Graders - It's Baby Picture Time!
Time to show off our wonderful 5th graders for this year's "Cougar Cubs" yearbook spread.  Please click here for more information. 
Library Volunteers Needed
Please consider offering a few hours of your precious time to help out in our library. Our schedule is pretty open right now so you can pick a day. We'd love to see you for about 2 hours during which you can visit your child at lunch if you wish. We also offer the option of bringing your child and a friend to the library to eat lunch together in a quiet atmosphere. Our volunteers enjoy seeing the books that we offer as they shelve. You will find a good connection to talk to your children about what they are checking out and what they might want to read.

MakerSpace Donations
Mountain View's MakerSpace will provide an avenue to integrate the Arts and 21st Century skills to create STEAM opportunities for students. To provide our students with various reusable, recycled, or new materials to invent, create, build, and program, we are reaching out to the school community. To those who have sent in supplies, we thank you! The students have been making and creating! There are several items that are either running or or students could use such as: twine or string, spools, nails/screws (various sizes), springs, empty tape spools, dowels, bottle caps, lego wheels or supplies to make wheels, cotton balls. To view the list and sign-up - click here! Items can be sent in or dropped off at school during normal school hours. The list is updated on a regular basis, so please check back often! Thank you for your support!


MVES Partners with UMW

In partnership with the University of Mary Washington (UMW), College of Education, Mountain View Elementary is the first elementary school in Prince William County to create a curriculum-focused MakerSpace. This innovative space is designed to encourage the use of current and emerging technology tools that support creativity, innovation, and personal engagement within the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields.
This MakerSpace, joined together with the Library, Computer Lab, and Broadcast Room, will provide an avenue for teachers and students to:
  • create STEM experiences, integrated with the Arts and 21st Century skills to create STEAM.
  • have open access to current and emerging technologies.
  • use experiential learning and authentic investigative practice, allowing learners to share, discuss, and compare new creations.
  • incorporate 21st century skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication, project and resource management, creativity, and adaptability within important curricular content to enhance student performance.
Opportunities for our school community to participate and support our MakerSpace are welcome!!

Get Involved - Volunteer!
There are numerous opportunities to get involved with our MakerSpace and S.T.E.A.M. initiative and your support matters. Lend your Expertise and/or Be a Guest Speaker! To sign-up, please visit this link:
