We had a fantastic day today with so much holiday festivity! Along with Christmas sweater day, this morning we welcomed several local “celebrities” such as Red Deer City councillors, School Board Trustees, retired Principal Barrie Wilson, MLA Barb Miller and Rebels announcer, Joe Whitbread. All of these lovely visitors spent an hour and a half with three different classes reading Christmas/Winter/Holiday stories and getting to know our students.

In the afternoon, as a way of fostering collective responsibility for all of our students, our teachers rotated through three different classes and taught classes other than their own. Each teacher developed a lesson on a topic about which they are passionate. We saw lessons on math, art, problem-solving, building, flight, friendship and many other awesome topics!

We would like to make Christmas a little brighter for a few of our Mountview families. If you would like to contribute toward gift cards for these families, please drop off cash or cheque to the office by next Wednesday. Thank you!
Have a super last week of school before the break!
Diane Roberts, Principal
