A Note from Mrs. Schrecker
Dear Mountain View Family and Friends, It is with deep regret that I must inform you that this is my last year serving as Principal of Mountain View Elementary. I will be relocating with my family to Arizona in July. My time at Mountain View has been absolutely incredible! The staff, students and parent community are second to none. It has been my pleasure to watch the Mountain View Elementary Community embrace STEAM via our MakerSpace initiative and I am so very proud of the work that has been done. Please welcome Mountain View's new Principal, Adriane Harrison. I will work closely with her to ensure a smooth transition and a positive start to the 2015-16 school year. Sincerely, Michelle Schrecker Principal, Mountain View Elementary

Mr. Jeffrey Ohmart led our 5th grade Strings students in their final concert last Tuesday night. Wow! They were amazing. Sincere thanks to Mr. Ohmart, for all of his hard work and dedication to our students.

Students have access to a great reading resource to learn throughout the year and prepare for the state standardized tests (SOL's). The school purchased, web-based program called Study Island, is accessible to students from school or home. All students in grades 4 - 5 have a username and password which is given out by the classroom teacher. Click here for an overview of the program.
