Still time to register!!  So far we have Brazil, Germany, India, Latvia, Serbia, and USA! We know we have more to come….
We invite all families to this fun evening that celebrates the diversity of Mountain View! We are looking for the families who would like to represent the country of their heritage at Mountain View International Night. Families will display a poster board with the facts of that country, crafts, flags, foods, clothing, maps, and photos -- perhaps perform something from their culture (dancing, singing, playing an instrument). Students receive passports and stamps as they travel from “country to country" and join the Parade of Nations. We will help you to get ready. Click HERE for registration forms ASAP! See the participation guidelines HERE
Please EMAIL Inese Stravelli, or call 770-262-3800, with questions.

From Nurse Karetha
Flu is on the rise in GA with a spike in the number of cases reported recently.  Please review the CCSD policy for school attendance with illness HERE.  Proper handwashing, sneezing and coughing into elbow, avoiding touching the T-zone (eyes, nose, mouth), and flu vaccination are helpful in preventing the spread of flu. 

PTA Day at the Capitol
2/16 @ 8:30-2pm, Floyd Building & Wear Your RED

First held in 1975, this event helped state-funded kindergarten become law, 69 years after the initial lobbying began. When PTA members talk to their legislators about children's issues, they know that the welfare of children and youth is the only purpose. This event delves into legislation and its impact on your children. Have meaningful conversations with your legislators at the luncheon at The Floyd Room! Click HERE for your mail-inregistration form!
