Dear Mount View Middle School community,

Believe it or not, we are already in the third quarter of the school year.  Second quarter report cards will come home on Friday February 3, so be sure to check those backpacks for the good news! This is also a great time of year to do a backpack check at home and weed out any excess paper many of our students like to carry around. Please take some time to review the report card and praise your child for all of their hard work this quarter. We are very proud of the effort put forth by the students each day at school.  This is evident by the fact that over 75 percent of Mount View students earned a honor roll recognition in the second quarter.  

If you are interested, HCPSS is hosting an information session about the assessments that are administered by the school system.
