January 2016


Dear Parents,
         We are so excited to announce that our school will be participating again in the Apex Fun Run this year as our major fundraiser!   We had an amazing Apex Fun Run last year and profited a ton!! The first 10% of the funds went to the teachers to spend in their classrooms.  Then, we were able to purchase technology for our classrooms.   Our goal is to beat that!
         The Apex program will be with our students from January 19th to January 29th teaching leadership and fitness as we raise pledges to help our school.  Please look in your child’s folder and e-mails that will be sent to you from your teachers as the fun run gets nearer.  
         Please feel free to visit to learn about this interactive program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership and fitness.  This year's theme is Dream Team, where students will join Johnny Dreamer and the Apex team in an exciting journey to learn what it means to become a Dream Team Leader:

Dive In!   Resourceful!    Elevate Others!   Attitude Check!    Make A Difference!

          During the Apex Fun Run, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on Thursday, January 28th to help our school.  Students will run for 30 minutes and will run an average 26-36 laps, with the maximum amount of laps being 36 (each lap is 1/16th of a mile).  Sponsors can pledge $1/lap, $2/lap, $5/lap, or any other amount for students.  All participants will receive an access code that allows you to enter pledges online.  All students will receive Apex bands, race-day lap counters, and team awards.  We will need your help in the following ways:

  •  Help connect your child to potential sponsors and help them acquire pledges from family, friends and contacts.
  • Ask your child about the “Apex Dream Team” character lessons, and download the “Apex Fun Run” App!
  • Help volunteer for the race!  We need a few parents to help cheer on students and mark laps.  If you would like to volunteer for your student’s race, please contact the PTA at  (Only volunteers, staff and students are able to attend the run, so sign up to volunteer and cheer on our kiddos!)

Thank you again for continued support of Mountain View and we are excited to begin this journey with you!

Photo ID

A photo ID is required to pick up a student, visit or volunteer. A volunteer badge is acceptable as your photo ID even if you are not volunteering. Just sign in as a visitor & wear your badge.

Important Safety Reminder

PLEASE remember that the safety of our students, parents and staff members comes first.  Speeding is unacceptable at all times.  Also remember that you should not have any part of your vehicle “IN” the crosswalk, blocking it in anyway, when dropping off or picking up.  This includes the crosswalks in the drop off lane and the crosswalks surrounding the school.  Make sure you stop BEFORE the crosswalk and do not move forward until a crossing guard has left the crosswalk and put their sign down, or a staff member has waved you through.  Please use designated crosswalks at all times and do not release students from your vehicle while in the road.  Refrain from parking in bike lanes, and making U-turns in the area surrounding the school.  Please only turn from designated turn lanes and follow all traffic laws.  We know it can get crowded during these times, so please be patient, expect a wait and keep in mind that waiting a few minutes longer is a much better option than putting the safety of others in jeopardy.  Modeling safe behavior for students is important.  We know that the safety of our Mountain View family is just as important to you as well.  Thank you for your help in this matter.
