Parents,

We are quickly approaching the end of the year.  We have had a great time this year! The play was awesome and a big shout out to Mrs. Morgan and all the students and volunteers that made it happen.  We also had an awesome Battle of the Books (BOB). We are so grateful to Ms. Nielson for making the battles happen. A special shout out to Tiffany Ahotaeiloa and Geneve Fallon for putting in so much time and effort with our Knowledge Bowl Geography Bee team.  Our 5th and 6th-grade team made top 10!

 

Teachers will be making class lists for next year. If you have specific concerns regarding your student please email Mr. Stubbs at cstubbs@alpinedistrict.org

 

Our rooftop picture is tomorrow, Wednesday the 24th of April.

 

One of the goals we set at Mountain Trails is to substantially increase the number of devices at Mountain Trails for student use.  This year we were able to get four Chromebooks for each of our 1st-3rd-grade classes and six i-pads for each Kindergarten room. This has helped with the implementation of things like Lexia.  In our 4th-6th grades, we were able to get fifteen Macbooks working with the help of our district tech and then with our thirty Chromebooks operating, this gave us the ability to have a 5th-6th-grade classroom set to share and then a half a classroom set for our 4th graders to share.  We also were able to utilize our regular computer lab a bit better this year than in years past. Our 4th-6th graders were able to use the devices to learn the writing process better through the utilization of technology. Over the next few years, we need to replace our older Chromebooks and MacBooks as well as increase the number of devices available to our students here at Mountain Trails.  In order to do that we need your SUPPORT in our fundraiser. We have set a goal of $9,000 if each student is able to raise $12 we will exceed our goal. Any help you could provide in making this goal happen would be a big help to us here at Mountain Trails as we endeavor to grow the availability of technology to our students.
