This Week in PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports)

Family Conversation Starter:

This week Mrs. Stroup, our PBIS Coach, visited every classroom to review our school-wide expectations.

  • In Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade we used a slideshow of photos of Mt. View students in action to talk about being safe, respectful and responsible in different areas around the school.
  • In 3rd, 4th and 5th grade we played a Jeopardy style game to review school-wide expectations – the what and the why.

Family Conversation starters:

  • Which expectations are easy for you to follow? Why?
  • Are there any expectations that are harder for you to follow?
  • Tell me about that. What do you think is the most important expectation at Mt. View?

Box Top Program

Hi Mt. View Supporters!

Thanks to all of you who have been clipping and turning in Box Tops to help raise money for the school.  We have earned $6600 using this program since we started and have purchased items for PE, classrooms, art supplies, etc.

I’ve received word that the Box Top program is changing and hopefully this will make it even easier for families to help our school.  Paper Box Tops are being phased out so you will see them less and less (though please continue to clip and turn them in, there is a drop-box located in the front office).

Instead, Box Tops are going digital.  All you have to do is download the Box Top app and scan your grocery receipt within 14 days of purchase.  Mt. View will automatically get credit for any eligible items.  That is it!  No box tops to clip, turn in or count.

Please see the attached flyer for more details, and thank you for supporting our students!

Classroom Celebrations

We are implementing the district’s Wellness Policy which will impact how we celebrate birthdays and special events around school.  If you have traditionally sent in treats with your child, please be aware that sugary foods (cupcakes, donuts, cookies) will no longer be allowed.  We know how meaningful birthdays are and we still look forward to celebrating with your child. Your child’s teacher can discuss alternative options with you specifically, but below you will find several suggestions of non-food or healthy alternatives:

Birthdays and Holidays Without Food

  • Allow extra recess time instead of classroom party time.
  • Birthday students can lead an active game for everyone.
  • Have dance parties. Birthday students can lead and pick out the music.
  • Instead of candy-filled birthday or holiday bags, have party bags with non-edible items (trinkets, school supplies such as colored pencils, erasers, markers, bookmarks, stickers, etc.).
  • Play special active party games.
  • Birthday students can lead.
  • Read a book related to the party theme.
  • Parents can purchase a book for the classroom or check one out from the school library in their child’s name for their birthday and come to school to read the book.

Healthy Food and Beverage Ideas

  • Air popped popcorn (without the butter)
  • Fresh fruit assortments (store bought)
  • Fruit sundae bar party with fresh fruit, low-fat yogurt, and granola.
  • Vegetable trays (store bought)

Thank You

The Mountain View Staff would like to thank the PTA for the delicious staff luncheon on Monday, December 16 – enjoyed by all!
