  • Title 1 is Helping all the Students

    Mountain View Elementary School, a Title I School, continues to strive for excellence! This year our school continues to qualify as a Title I School. What does that mean? Parents have the opportunity to apply for Free/Reduced Lunch. The percentage of students who qualify for this program determines if schools are eligible to be a Targeted Assisted School or a School-wide Title I School. Schools with 30% -39% percent of Free/Reduced students can receive funds as a Targeted Assisted school. These funds must be used for the students receiving free/reduced lunch. Schools having more than 40% of students receiving free/reduce lunch can receive funds as a School-wide school. These funds can be used for every child in the school. We are currently a School-wide Title I School with 41% of students receiving free/reduced lunch. These additional funds pay for additional teacher assistant support, tutors, computer equipment, and other instructional supplies. Our goal is to provide students with the resources, support, and everything they need to be successful in our school and community. Along with our parents, this educational partnership allows students to go places outside of the instructional walls that surround our school. Students are using tools to navigate the curriculum through technology. They are also able to work collaboratively with peers in the classroom and in the various clubs on campus. Students are learning that they can make a difference in our world by participating in Service Projects throughout the year. No matter how small, no matter how tall; when we work together - oh the places we can go, oh the people we can meet, and oh the difference we can make.

  • Mountain View Students take on Service Projects

    The students and parents of Mountain View have always been very generous in helping to support programs such as JDRF and Jump Rope for Heart as well as other state and National projects. Although these are worthy and wonderful causes, this year we have decided to let the children be more involved in what it means to help others and have a more hands on approach. This is to teach them about helping others without receiving something in return such as a prize. Each grade level is doing a project to raise money or collect items to serve the community they live in. If possible, they would love to involve everyone in each of the projects. There will be more information coming as each project date gets nearer. If you are able to have your child help in any or several of these projects, we thank you! Announcements will be put on the web page for each project. Thank you in advance for your continued support and generosity as the students learn about helping others. Projects: 2nd grade, November 1-December 6: Toys for Cops (New and gently used toys), December 1-22: 5th & 6th grade collecting cans to feed the hungry, December 1-19 MVTV Salvation Army Tree, January 2-31: Teacher Assistants 'Penny Wars' for Kids in Need, February 1-12: 1st grade, Making and selling Tissue Paper Flowers to support the Back Pack program at our school, March 1-31: 3rd and 4th grade, April: Kindergarten Meals on Wheels and Assisted Living Homes
