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.
