Veterans Day Celebration 11/7
Mountain View School would like to invite all of our military families (active duty, retired, veteran) with students in grades 4 through 8 to attend the 2019 Veterans Day Celebration on Thursday, November 7, 2019, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. in our gymnasium. 

Two students will be reading their essays on "Home of the Free Because of the Brave," our choir will be singing, two first grade classes will sing a song, and we will have a guest speaker.  It is a wonderful opportunity to honor our military families.  We are also inviting our Veterans to sign up to read to a classroom in Kindergarten through Third grade after the celebration.  

Veterans who would like to attend and those who would like to read to a primary level classroom can RSVP in one of three ways: 

1. Respond online using our Veterans Day Celebration google form;

2. Email Rachel, the administrative secretary, with the name and grade level of your student, as well as the names and branch of service of your guests; if you are willing to read to a primary level class, please also let her know that you are interested and whether you prefer a specific grade level or classroom; or

3. Call the school office at 623-876-7450 and speak with Rachel.

We look forward to seeing you all and honoring your service.
