Mountain View had a fun and successful literacy night in December! Students and families came dressed in warm PJ's and had a cozy night listening to stories and making crafts. We had over 150 students and families attend the event along with 20 staff members! Students followed a map and selected three stories and crafts for the evening. There were classics like The Grinch That Stole Christmas and Polar Express, as well as new winter stories. Students and families also received gift bags containing a book, water, crackers, cookies, and an apple. Thank you, Double Diamond, for donating 200 apples! A special thank you to Mrs. Durfee-Wells for organizing the annual event as well as staff members who read books and taught special crafts. It was a fun evening for everyone!
