At our general farewell assembly to say good-bye to the Don Campbell students, we presented a cheque for $2500 to Mr. Cam Pizzey, Principal of Don Campbell Elementary. This is a portion of what we raised from our Read-a-thon this year. We thought that since the DCE students had helped us to raise this money, that they should benefit from it too. Our School Council is donating $1000 to the DCE School Council to get them started as well.

It is always amazing to me when we reach the last week of school, how quickly it has seemed to sneak up on us. I was just chatting with Mr. Paul, our amazing head caretaker and he said, “Another great year at Mountview!” He is right. We have so much to look back on and be proud of such as:
Student successes like a grade 2 student who improved several levels in his reading this year and a visually impaired student who showed the world his talent for using Braille
Student leaders who raised money and worked toward all types of causes through their passion for taking care of the world
Excellent monthly assemblies showcasing our student talent
An award for our outstanding caretaker, Mr. Paul
A successful year for our school council who met their fundraising goals and were able to support things like grade 5 camp and swimming lessons
A revitalized courtyard that is a beautiful space to learn in and enjoy
A beautiful new sensory room to help students regulate and get ready for learning
These are just a few of our successes and we look forward to many more next year! We say “take care, polar bear”, to our departing students heading the middle school and Don Campbell Elementary in the fall. We also wish our departing staff well in their new adventures.
MEET THE TEACHER - SAVE THE DATE! On August 30 from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. we will open our doors for students and parents to come in and find out which class they will be in, meet their teacher, drop off school supplies and have a hot dog lunch! Our Grill Father, Mr. T. is shining up his tongs! We hope to see you there! If you cannot make it that day, we will see you on the first day of school, August 31!
Thanks for a great year and have a fantastic summer!
Diane Roberts, Principal
