Celebrate Compassion Week at Mountain View This Week! πŸ˜ƒ 
 
This a FUN week of daily themes to teach students about ALWAYS showing compassion and respect for EVERYONE regardless of our differences. ❀️ Compassion week is about understanding that we are all more alike than different, and that we don't have to be the same in order to come together to learn and play. ❀️ Each day we have a different theme planned for the students and staff to participate in. We would love to see as much participation as possible in this wonderful week of showing compassion! Listed below are the daily themes for Compassion Week and what they represent:
 
❀️  Mon. Nov. 13th- "Mismatch Sock Day" - Wear two of your silliest, different, mismatched socks for everyone to see! We put two different socks together as a pair to both warm our feet. This represents that we don't have to be the same in order to still learn & play with everyone we meet!

❀️  Tues. Nov 14th- "Crazy Hair, Don't Care Day" - Come to school showing off your favorite craziest hair styles! We don't mind when our friends look, talk, or do things differently than us. We all do things in our own unique way & today represents that it is totally OK!

❀️  Wed. Nov. 15th- "Show our Compassion Day" - Let's all show our compassion for each other today! This day is all about saying kind words to our friends and teachers, lending helping hands when you see someone in need, cheering up a friend who may be feeling down, and sharing your compassion with EVERYONE around!

❀️  Thurs. Nov. 16th- "Caps for Compassion Day" - Come to school wearing your favorite hat! You may wear a baseball cap, winter hat, or one with sparkles around the edge. This will show everyone that you have taken the compassion pledge!

❀️  Fri. Nov. 17th- "Rock Your Pink & Yellow Day" - Everyone should come to school rocking their pink & yellow from head to toe. Pink is the color of compassion, and yellow is the color of respect. 

We want everyone to know whether near or far, that here at Mountain View we ALWAYS respect EVERYONE no matter what our differences are!! 
 

Our school's Thanksgiving lunches are scheduled for November 15th and November 16th. We look forward to seeing all you for a yummy lunch! πŸ΄ πŸ˜ƒ

Special Request from Our Principal, Dr. Garriss: 

Dear Families, 
We would greatly appreciate it if you would please complete the Georgia Parent Survey that factors into our School Climate Rating Score and College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI). Below is information and the link to the survey. Please fee free to complete it at home. Many thanks to you and your support for our incredibly wonderful new school! 

Georgia Parent Survey
The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone or tablet. All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as paret of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below. 
 

Georgia Parent Survey: http://gshs.gadoe.org/parents
 

Although there is no mandatory participation rate for the Georgia Parent Survey, schools that haveno participation in the survey will receive  0.0 score. Schools with less than 15 parent surveys will be designated as Low Participation (LP) and the results will not be calculated. Either way, no parent or low parent participation will negatively impact a school's School Climate Star Rating. 

Kind regards, 
Renee I. Garriss, Ed.D.
Principal

The MVE Reflections Committee thanks everyone who participated in this year's contest. There were so many wonderful entries and scores were extremely close! Unfortunately, only the top 4 entries in each division (k-2, 3-5) in each category were advanced.

Reflections requires a lot of effort from students and parents. An awards reception will be held in January to recognize and honor each participating student and their parents. We will email details in January and hope you will make plans to attend and cheer for all of our students. 

Please encourage your child to participate next year and we hope that they consider entering artistic pieces in multiple categories.

Congratulations to Our MVES Winners advancing to County this year:

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Sincerely,
