A Message from our Principal

Hello Mountain View Parents:

We have completed the second quarter, and our students are learning! I want to take this time to invite you to become part our Academic Parent Teacher Team (APTT). We want to create a partnership between parents, students, and teachers to help our students succeed academically. I encourage you to get involved. Find out the purpose behind APTT and help your child achieve academically.

At Mountain View, we believe that a strong partnership between home and school will increase our student academic achievement.  Feel free to contact me or your child’s teacher to find out more about becoming a partner in your child’s education. Together, we will soar and increase our students’ academic achievement.

This letter is also available in Spanish.
