From the Prinicpal:

Dear Mountain View Families,
     We are already halfway through the school year. Our teachers have been hard at work providing the
best educational learning environment possible. Our students have been busy learning and growing,
academically and socially.
     We are finished with our winter school-wide assessments in reading and math. Congratulations to all
our students for their determination to do their best.Teachers and staff will use the assessment data to
plan for the third quarter. We strive to provide the individual support each student needs in order to be
successful at school. This year we have a 45-minute intervention block built into our daily schedule.
During this time, students receive language support, specially designed instruction, math and reading
interventions, and enrichment opportunities.
     At Mountain View, we value not only academic learning, but social learning too. Each month we have
a character trait the entire school focuses on.Our three school-wide expectations of Show Respect, Make
Good Decisions, and Solve Problems are taught and reinforced every day by all staff members. Please
spend some time with your student to discuss how he/she is doing at school and review our three school
expectations.These are skills and traits that will make each student successful, not only in school, but in
life and at home. We want our students to be positive and contributing members of society.
     Thank you for your continued support for your student.Our mission at Mountain View is to
provide a positive and safe environment where we will nurture academic, social, physical and expressive
growth through quality instruction. We know we will be able to achieve this goal if we work together.

Dates to Remeber:

  • We do have school on February 14th. This will be one of the two snow make-up days we have so far
    this year.
  • Kindergarten Registration will take place at Mountain View on February 18th and 27th from
    5:30 – 7:00. If you have a student that will turn five years old by August 31st, please come and
    register.
  • March 12th is our 4th and 5th Grade Music Program. Ms. Corcoran
    is already working with our students to prepare for this special
    performance.

Tips for Parents from the School Counselor


At Mountain View Elementary we are dedicated to teaching our children how to develop and use healthy social skills. Research shows this will have an important impact on students’ ability to succeed in school and in life. Parents play an important role in setting the foundation to help their children develop these skills, and in supporting and reinforcing what we are teaching them at school. Here are some important social skills to have, and some common tips used to teach them in children:
1. What are Social Skills and Why are They Important?
When we talk about the social skills needed for your child’s success in school and life, it’s not about popularity or getting your child to be socially outgoing. Developing strong social and emotional skills is about teaching your child how to have meaningful relationships with others, how to develop a sense of empathy, and how to be able to handle stressful situations in a healthy way

Here is a list of some of the most important social skills that your child will need to be able to succeed in school and life:
• Be responsible for their behavior Follow rules
• Get along with others
• Ask for help
• Accept differences in others
• Have patience
• Stay calm when interacting with others Listen to others
• Take turns
• Do nice things for others

2. Model
The best way to teach these skills is by setting a good example for your child. What we do is just as (or more!) important as what we say. For example, if your first reaction to your child’s misbehavior is to lose your temper and shout, then your child will learn to shout and throw a tantrum when faced with a stressful situation. Instead, try to stay calm and explain to your child why you want a certain behavior. Of course, children are experts at pushing your buttons, and all parents will likely lose their temper at times. This is natural, but if this is always your first reaction, then it will likely become your child’s first reaction as well.
3. Practice
An important step to teaching your child social and emotional skills is to practice these skills on a regular basis. There are many ways to practice these skills, and it can be as simple as doing something nice for a friend or sibling, for example (i.e. “Let’s surprise your brother and make his favorite meal for dinner”). Reading stories and playing games is another great way to teach social and emotional skills.
4. Reinforce
It is important to take time to discuss your child’s use of social skills with them each day. Be sure to celebrate their successes – if you make a big deal out of their positive behavior, your child will likely want to repeat the behavior.

Consejos de la Consejera

En Mountain View estamos dedicados a enseñar a nuestros hijos cómo desarrollar y usar habilidades sociales saludables. La investigación muestra que esto tendrá un impacto importante en la capacidad de los estudiantes para tener éxito en la escuela y en la vida. Los padres juegan un papel importante en establecer las bases para ayudar a sus hijos a desarrollar estas habilidades, y en apoyar y reforzar lo que les estamos enseñando en la escuela. Aquí hay algunas habilidades sociales importantes para tener, y algunos consejos comunes que se usan para enseñarlos en los niños:
1. ¿Qué son las habilidades sociales y por qué son importantes?
Cuando hablamos de las habilidades sociales necesarias para el éxito de su hijo en la escuela y la vida, no se trata de popularidad o de hacer que su hijo sea socialmente extrovertido. Desarrollar fuertes habilidades sociales y emocionales se trata de enseñarle a su hijo cómo tener relaciones significativas con los demás, cómo desarrollar un sentido de empatía y cómo ser capaz de manejar situaciones estresantes de una manera saludable.
Aqui hay una lista de algunas de las habilidades sociales mas importantes que su hijo necesitara para tener exito en la escuela y la vida:
• Ser responsable de su comportamiento
• Sigue las reglas
• Llevarse bien con los demas
• Pedir ayuda
• Aceptar diferencias en los demas
• Tener paciencia
• Mantener la calma cuando interactue con los demas Escuchar a los demas
• Turnarse
• Hacer cosas buenas por los demás

2. Modela
La mejor manera de enseñar estas habilidades es dar un buen ejemplo para su hijo. Lo que hacemos es tan (o más) importante como lo que decimos. Por ejemplo, si su primera reacción al mal comportamiento de su hijo es perder los estribos y gritar, entonces su hijo aprenderá a gritar y hacer berrinches cuando se enfrente a una situación estresante. En su lugar, trate de mantener la calma y explíquele a su hijo por qué desea un determinado comportamiento. Por supuesto, los niños son expertos en presionar sus botones, y todos los padres probablemente perderán los estribos a veces. Esto es natural, pero si esta es siempre su primera reacción, es probable que también se convierta en la primera reacción de su hijo.
3. Practica
Un paso importante para enseñarle a su hijo habilidades sociales y emocionales es practicar estas habilidades de manera regular. Hay muchas maneras de practicar estas habilidades, y puede ser tan simple como hacer algo bueno por un amigo o hermano, por ejemplo (es decir, "Sorprendamos a su hermano y hagamos su comida favorita para la cena"). Leer historias y jugar juegos es otra excelente manera de enseñar habilidades sociales y emocionales.
4. Reforzarse
Es importante tomarse el tiempo para discutir el uso de las habilidades sociales de su hijo con ellos todos los días. Asegúrese de celebrar sus éxitos: si hace un gran problema con su comportamiento positivo, es probable que su hijo quiera repetir el comportamiento.

          I along with the entire Mountain View staff are excited to start a new year of learning with your child. We are here to provide the best education possible for each individual student. This means that at Mountain View we will provide a rich and rigorous core curriculum for all students to prepare them for the future, as well as provide any additional necessary support. We will spend time teaching and fostering social skills as students interact with each other, adults, and learn more about the world in which they live.
          This is a special year for Mountain View, and for the Quincy School District. We are very excited to be a smaller neighborhood school where we can foster the growth of students for up to six years. We know this will provide stability for your child. Some of our students are returning to Mountain View, and some are brand new. Our awaiting staff are ready to welcome each student as a Mountain View Jackrabbit!
We believe that the school and families must work together to ensure the success for our students. I invite and encourage you to get involved with our school this year. We need your support and we would love to see you join our Parent Volunteer Committee, volunteer time in classrooms or on field trips, or join some of our school committees. We invite you to be an active part of your student’s academic journey. Research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.
          It is an honor to be the principal of Mountain View. I am fully committed to providing the highest quality educational experience for every student. I not only want each student to learn and grow in academics and social skills, but I want them to love learning and find joy in school and in their educational journey. We have an outstanding staff of talented educators. We look forward getting to know you and your students this year. I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns or questions you might have throughout the school year. Our friendly office staff are here until 4:00 PM and would be happy to assist you in anyway.
          Thank you for sending your child to Mountain View. It is a privilege to serve a positive and impactful role in your child’s education. Let’s celebrate their success together along the way. Welcome to the Mountain View Jacks family!!

The Importance of Student Attendance

If you are a parent of a school aged student I am sure you have heard someone say “attendance matters” or “attendance is important.”  But what does that truly mean?  How important is it really to attend school regularly?

 So first let’s start with some basic facts.  The school calendar we work with accounts for 180 academic school days for our students.  Research shows that a student should be present 95% of the time to meet regular attendance standards.  In a 180 day school year, that means the student should be present at least 171 school days to be considered in regular attendance.   This means that if a student misses 10 or more school days in the school year they fall into the “at risk” category.  If your child misses an average of one school day per month then your child falls into the category of an “at risk” student. 

So what is the danger of being an “at risk” student?  Research clearly shows that students who miss 10 or more school days will be adversely affected in their learning.  In fact, 64% of students who have regular attendance will meet reading standard by the end of 3rd grade.  However, only 43% of students who are “at risk” in attendance during their Kindergarten or 1st grade year will meet reading standard by the end of their 3rd grade year.  Research also shows, that students who do not meet grade level in reading by their 3rd grade year or 4x less likely to graduate high school.

Summer Fun

Summer vacation is an exciting time for many students. The students no longer have to wake up early, no longer have to go to school, no longer have to read.  However, if students stop doing these things all summer it can have a drastic effect on all the information they worked so hard to learn during the year.  The process of students losing information is known as the “summer slide.”  The summer slide is real, in fact research shows that some students can lose as much as two months of reading progress.  That is like missing approximately 40 days of school in one year!

Parents can help students maintain the learning skills they have developed by helping their kids complete academic tasks into their daily routine. These don’t have to be difficult or necessarily follow a “set curriculum.”  The students simply need to continue using their brain, practice basic math skills, and interact with books and reading all summer.  

Your children should also try to do the following every day so their child stays healthy and happy.

  1. Eat vegetables with their meals
  2. Enjoy healthy snacks like fresh fruit
  3. Drink several glasses of water a day
    • The more they sweat they more they need to drink
  4. Play/exercise outside for 60 minutes a day
  5. Challenge their brain in a math activity
  6. Read and discuss a story/book with an adult.
  7. Get at least 10 hours of sleep a night
    • It is important to maintain a routine of going to bed a certain time and waking up at a set time.
