Info Requested
Kindie & 1st grade parents , could you please take a moment to fill out a preregistration form for the 17-18 School Year.

This information is critical for our upcoming 17-18 class placements .  If you are unable to complete the form, please email BECKY directly, whether you child will be returning to Mountain View in the Fall.  Thank you so much for your time!
Did you know outstanding fees
FOLLOW YOU?
That's right, outstanding fees compound from school year to school year!  
If they remain unpaid when your child is prepared to graduate from High School, the district will hold your child's diploma until all bills are settled!
Nip this vicious cycle in the bud! 
Login to your parent portal and click on online fee payments tab.

May 19th - Student-led Fundraiser
Brayden J. in Mrs. Dix's class is calling on all students to make MVE a better place!
Brayden was putting away jump ropes after recess one day, and after much untangling, he saw that MVE needed a jump rope rack.
All students are asked to bring in $1 to help Brayden buy Mountain View new jump rope racks and new jump ropes!
If students bring in a $1, they can wear a hat to school that day!
