May 25, 2022 Bulletin

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE:

Dear Families,

Today all students participated in a bike and pedestrian safety workshop, thanks to a partnership with the City of Mountain View.  Students learned and practiced several skills, including proper bicycle safety equipment, making eye contact with drivers before crossing streets, and taking safer routes to school.  To learn more about walking and biking to school, please visit our school’s website for more information.  Summer is a great time to teach, rehearse, and reinforce bike and pedestrian safety rules with your children.  

A friendly reminder that Friday is the end of the 3rd trimester and a minimum day for students.  There is no school on Monday, May 30th in observance of Memorial Day.  The last day of school is Friday, June 3rd and is also a minimum day for students.  Report cards and iReady diagnostic 3 scores will be emailed to families on June 3rd.

Have a wonderful week!

In partnership,

Principal Cyndee

  • Before you arrive, please ask your student to make sure that all pieces of the instrument are in the case. 

  • For your safety and the safety of our staff, please be sure you wear a mask during your appointment.

TK-4 grade students: Turn in Chromebooks by end of year

MVWSD is proud to provide a device for learning to every student, as well as access to the Internet both at home and school. Regular access to the Internet facilitates instruction by allowing students to research and communicate, and ensures equitable access to learning for all students.
