Volume 7, issue #3
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.
Our teachers received over $20,000 in grants to classroom materials through the State of Colorado!
We had a wonderful turn-out for Food Truck Night last week, which was our first community event of the school year.
Our staff has been feeling the love of our community through several staff appreciation events sponsored by PTO. We are so thankful for everything you do for us!
We're all looking forward to the annual Miles for Mountain View Fun Run coming on October 5!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I can't wait for more fall weather to come our way.
Hello Mountain View! If you are interested in having your child tested for GT identification, there is a link to request testing on our school website under classrooms and then Gifted and Talented. Testing will take place on November 7-8 (the CogAT is a 2 day test and students need to be present both days), with make-ups as needed. The DEADLINE to nominate your child is October 10 and late nominations will not be accepted. I have also included the link to request testing here. Please reach out to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or your child's teacher if you have any questions.
