Dear Mountain View Families,

 

We wish to extend the warmest welcome to each of you for the 2022-2023 school year!  As the PTA moves on from the social distancing restrictions of the pandemic, we have identified and implemented strategies to aid in the shaping of our “new normal.”  

 

Our 2022-2023 Strategic Goals are to:

  • Reset - To realign our trajectory with the PTA purpose and refocus on our core PTA values and standards.
  • Rebrand - To create a consistent, unified, modernized and powerful perception of our messaging and visual identity.
  • Reconnect - To engage new families and re-engage our existing families after the increasing detachment and withdrawal caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Reconnecting and engaging our families, not only helps the PTA accomplish its mission, it contributes to positive school, teacher, and student achievements.  A copy of our complete 2022-2023 Strategic Planning Goals is available here.

 

We strive to have a very active PTA, that partners between the administration, teachers, families, and communities to make Mountain View a great place for our children.  But, we need your help to accomplish this.  The simplest way to help is by joining the PTA.  Your membership helps us to provide resources such as:

  • Online curriculum such as Raz Kids and MobyMax
  • Curriculum tools such as Storyworks Magazines
  • Health clinic supplies
  • Supplies for P.E., art and music
  • Author and artist visits
  • Enrichment tools for Special Education, Target and Speech
  • Health and wellness initiatives
  • Professional development for teachers
  • Support for school academic initiatives
  • Sponsoring the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl
  • Community outreach programs to provide assistance to students in need

You can join the PTA here

 

In order for our PTA to be effective and represent our entire student body, participation of our parents is truly essential. We welcome all members of the Mountain View community to help us make a difference in our students’ lives.  Your voice is important!  Please attend our general PTA meetings and let your voice be heard.  Our general PTA meetings are held:

  • August 26, 2022 at 5:30 pm in the MVES Music Room (before the BBQ and Bingo Family Fun Night)
  • January 27, 2023 at 5:30 pm in the MVES Music Room (before the Crafts and Cocoa Family Fun Night)
  • March 24, 2023 at 5:30 pm in the MVES Music Room (before the STEM Family Fun Night)

The PTA is run entirely by volunteers.  Many of us (including both co-presidents) are working parents.  We love any assistance from our families and appreciate your valuable time. If you would like to volunteer, please do not hesitate to contact us. We have a wide range of opportunities, and we would love to find the perfect fit for you!

 

We thank you in advance for your continued support! We have many exciting things planned for the year ahead. We wish you a successful school year and look forward to seeing you on July 28th from 7:45am - 1:00pm for Mountain View's Sneak a Peek!

 

Please feel free to reach out to us with any ideas, questions, or concerns.

 

Best Regards,
