Student Blog
We challenged MVE students to write in a way they not normally be exposed - a BLOG!  Students were given a couple of constraints:

the topic had to be Mountain View,
their post had to be at least 6 sentences,
they had to delineate if it was fiction or non-fiction,
they had to complete the work on their own time,
had to meet a deadline!

The 2nd graders who post are all volunteers!  No matter their writing ability - they are challenging themselves both in a new creative arena as well as in time management.  1st graders who post were nominated by their teachers!  Check back each Friday (starting Friday Feb 16th, 2018) for our newest post.  You can also subscribe to our blog to get the new posts pushed to you automatically!  We hope you enjoy our STUDENT BLOG!

Mountain View Elementary: The Best School Ever!

By: Trevor L.

              Mountain View is an elementary school with kids in preschool through second grade.  Students at MVE rock when they are learning. For example, the second graders help the school by leading in activities like Cub Club, where the members help those in need. Mountain View is a great school to learn at, with wonderful teachers that help all students learn.  Also, Mountain View has great specials like Art, P.E. and World Cultures. P.E. helps you get a good exercise, and helps others in need like Jump Rope for Heart. In Art, we get to make projects for our parents to see. It is the best school ever because there are great things to do at school like write books, do projects, and read fluently. This is what you do at Mountain View!

“My First Day at Mountain View”
By:  Madeline D., Mrs. Horber’s Class

  My first day at Mountain View was a great day!    I started right after the winter break.  I had been going to American Academy since Kindergarten and my parents decided it was time to move to a closer school.  The first day of my new school, I did not want to go to school.  I didn’t know anyone!  The first day I was shy.  I was also scared! Turns out I had a really nice teacher.  I made new friends immediately and fit right in.  I got invited to birthday parties right away!  I had fun learning and I had a great rest of the year.  I LOVE Mountain View!

On Wednesday the 2nd graders had a stuffed animal sleepover. The sleepover party was so much fun. First, the stuffed animals ate pizza. Next, they read some books. After that, they did some word work and played LEGOs. Then finally they went to bed. The next morning, we all got to find our stuffed animals in the classroom and spend the whole day with them.  I found my stuffed animal in the marker basket.

Hi, my name is Cam.
And I'm going to tell you about one of my school days.

When I got to my class room I unstacked my chair. Then I got out my super skills and did two pages. When I finished my super skills I sat at my seat until we went to P.E. The thing I love about P.E is my teacher is really funny. And  he sometimes let's us play whatever we vote on. When we were in P.E we were playing basketball working on drills. After, we did basketball drills we played red light green light with basketballs. Then we played normal red light green light. Then, we lined up to go back to class. When I got back class we started writing. After, writing we went to lunch. After, lunch we went out to recess. I played basketball. After, recess we went inside to do literacy centers. My favorite center is book club. Only my  group does book club because I'm in the highest reading group. After, centers we went out to second recess. My recess is about ten minutes. When the whistle blew we lined up. Our door holder opened the door. When we got inside we did math. After, math we did PDL for 30 minutes. After, PDL we packed up and went home. That's one of my days at Mountain View Elementary.

"All About Teachers"
Trynity B.
First Grade

Mountain view teachers help kids learn and develop us into smart, happy and nice kids. The teachers here are cool and have great personalities.  Teachers are a very good thing to have and allow us to learn about so much.  We are so lucky to have world cultures as it is a unique class helping us better understand other ideas and people. All the teachers here are sweet especially Ms. Kastanek.  This is a very good school; I’m very glad I came here and I wish I never had to leave.
Thank you for coming to Mountain View, teachers.

"I Love Mountain View"
by Cayden B
2nd grade 

I love Mountain View.  Our school, Mountain View, is fun!  If you come to Mountain View, you will learn more.  All of the specials are great.  My favorite special is World Cultures, because I can learn Russian.  All of the teachers are very nice. The three teachers that I like the best are Mrs. Horber because she is very nice, Mrs. Liedell because she was my favorite Kindergarten Teacher, and Mrs. DePas (Kastanek) because of "purple whale."  We passed "purple whale" around and told each other about our weekend.  Mountain View is a friendly school.  We will make you feel welcome!  Now you know all about Mountain View!
