Student Spotlight: Marina Wince

Marina is in her first season of Folkstyle Wrestling. Wrestling is one the fastest growing sports for girls in the nation. Both of her older brothers wrestle and Marina has grown up attending tournaments. This year Marina said she wanted to try it. She attends practice twice a week for one hour. She has competition on the weekends in the 6 under Novice brackets which are co-ed. She enjoys the sport; especially when her hand is raised at the end of a tough match.

Mountain View is SO PROUD of Marina!!!

PBIS: Don't Squeal Unless its a Big Deal

Dear Mountain View Families,

This month, the DCSD Student Wellness and Prevention Framework topic is “How and When to Report”. The Mountain View PBIS committee is encourag-ing all staff and families to have conversations around this topic. At our primary level, we are directing most of our conversation around the differences between tattling and reporting. We will also be having conversation about what to do when it’s decided that the behavior in question does warrant a report. We will be watching a read aloud video created by Mrs. Jacques. In the video, she will be reading the story, Don’t Squeal Unless it’s a Big Deal by Jeanie Ranson. You can watch the video at home with your family by clicking HERE. Staff also has access to the Framework Handout, Tattling vs. Reporting, which you can view by clicking HERE , to help guide and solidify student understanding.

After watching the video in class, each teacher will be prompting students to dis-cuss the difference between reporting and tattling. We’ll learn that the first step when someone does something hurtful is to address it with an ‘I sentence’ such as, “I feel __ when you ___. Please stop.” Then, if the behavior continues step two is to talk to an adult about it. We’ll learn that proper reporting is an im-portant part of keeping our school family safe, which is all of our responsibili-ties!

Finally, we encourage you to continue the conversation about the differences between reporting and tattling, as well as what to do when it is necessary to re-port at home or at school. Thank you!

In Partnership,

Mountain View Elementary

Attendance Matters!

If students don't show up for school regularly, they miss out on fundamental reading and math skills and the chance to build a habit of good attendance that will carry them into college and careers. Attendance matters as early as kindergarten. Studies show many children who miss too many days in kindergarten and first grade can struggle academically in later years. They often have trouble mastering reading by the end of third grade. Please join Mountain View with perfect February attendance.

2nd graders are discussing air pressure and how differences and changes in air can move objects. One class used balloons to move air and subsequently objects across the desk. The experiment was called “Air is There” - and they moved styrofoam balls, crepe paper and straws and then they compared and evaluated which would go the further. Another class gave weather reports, picked photos of the weather they were reporting, and then parents videoed them on the green screen in the maker space and then the teachers will be putting those pictures in as backgrounds - just like real weather reporters!

At the beginning of the year, the 1st graders were challenged to create a snow-person out of three white circles. They were invited to be creative and to make their snowperson 3D, with detailed backgrounds. Some of the snowmen they came up with were amazing. Then after they constructed the snow people, they presented their creations to the class and finally wrote descriptive works about their snow people!

Ms. Ham’s Class: Weather & Snowmen - The kids continued learning about weather this week, with a theme of snowmen. The kids compared and contrasted the snowman books the class red and enjoyed snowman centers. They also made snowmen soup - the wrote the “recipe” and the steps in order to make snowmen soup!

Ms. Rolinger’s & Mrs. Liedell’s Classes: Both classes used the same book, Snowballs by Lois Ehlert, to enhance their students’ creativity, collaboration and communication. Mrs. Liedell’s class contrasted and described the snow people they built and wrote down their thoughts and shared them with their friends. Ms. Rolinger’s classes “saved their leftovers” just as the characters in the book did, for a snowy day. The students then used those “leftovers” to create snow people and animals. Additionally, Ms. Rolinger’s classes just earned their 2nd paw party, where they have chosen to celebrate by doing science experiments!

MVE art students are incorporating exploration and play into their classes. Ms.Ott, our art teacher, calls these days “art parties.” On these days, students as a class get to choose materials they will use and then they get the opportunity to rotate through each material. During the art parties, Ms. Ott chooses questions for students to ponder as they go through their table rotations. These questions help guide the discovery of what they are creating and to help make the process purposeful & meaningful. The intent is for the students not to create for the questions, but rather for themselves.

In this particular art party, Ms.Ott asked: “Why should I explore?” “Why is de-sign important?” “Who decides what is considered beautiful?” What is most im-portant to me?” Why should I express my feelings?” and “What can I do to solve a problem?”

Classes earn these art parties though a point system; points that they earn during ‘regular’ art classes. And, Ms. Ott created these art parties as a way for students to ‘be kids’ and let them explore and find their inner artist!

IT IS TIME TO OPEN ENROLL!!
