“Leading with Heart, Spirit and Pride”
On behalf of the Mountain View Team, it is a pleasure to welcome you to the MV Golden Bear community! Our district/school wide theme this year, ‘Better Together,’ perfectly describes the sense of community here on the Mountain View campus. It’s parents, staff, and students united with the belief that we’re better together to make Mountain View a high-performing academic school and a place where we believe ALL kids can learn and be the best they can be in mind, body, and spirit. We are thrilled to be partnering with you as ‘One Team Working Together’ in preparing our students for academic and co-curricular success in the 2018-2019 school year!
Mountain View Elementary School is one of 33 elementary sites in the Clovis Unified School District, and is a part of the Clovis North Area. Our Golden Bear students, at the conclusion of their 6th grade year, transition to the intermediate school, Granite Ridge, which is located on the Clovis North High School complex. Our school facility, now 29 years old, is located on the northeast corner of Alluvial and Maple Avenues in the city of Fresno. Currently, our school is serving a diverse population of approximately 700 K-6th grade students and their families. The ethnic breakdown is approximately as follows; 5% African American, 1% American Indian, 10% Asian, 3% Filipino, 1% Pacific Islander, 25% Hispanic and 55% White.
Although MV is proud of its many accomplishments: California State Distinguished School Award for Academic Excellence, National Blue Ribbon Award, California Business for Educational Excellence, our district CLASSI (Clovis Assessment System for Sustained Improvement) recognition, the Fresno State Bonner Character Education award, the California PBIS Coalition Silver Award, and the Civic Learning Award, we still feel we have importance work to do. Our Instructional Leadership Team of teachers, support staff, and administrators continues their commitment to deepening their collaboration efforts through PLC (Professional Learning Communities) process. PLC meetings have strengthened our ability to maintain high standards and expectations for student achievement. PLC’s provide the venue for our team to share effective instructional strategies/processes, and make informed decisions in a collaborative style. This year, we’re excited to be continuing our efforts with Building Internal Coherence for Instructional Improvement in the area of Math Problem Solving and Cultural Proficiency.
We look forward to an exciting new year and highly encourage you to become an active, involved parent on our campus by joining committees, Parent Teacher Club (PTC), serving as classroom and library volunteers, and/or assisting with our co-curricular activities. Without you, we couldn’t do what we do. We are BETTER TOGETHER!
Wishing everyone a fantastic school year!
