Principal's Message

Dear Mountain View Families,

Fall is finally arriving... my favorite season of the year! I love everything about it, starting with the weather & the color changes. (Although, I must confess, I'm NOT a fan of the Pumpkin Spice Latte.)

I'm happy to report we're having a fantastic start to the school year. It's hard to believe we're almost through the first quarter already! We have several things to celebrate:

Over the summer, we had interactive white boards installed in our classrooms. We are loving the additional technology.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I can't wait for more fall weather to come our way.
