Dear Mountain View Parents, Guardians, and Students:

I hope you are having a fantastic summer! It is hard to believe that it is coming to an end. I am looking forward to meeting all of you and serving as your principal. We will post classroom rosters the week before school starts. School supply lists can be found on our website or by visiting our app (see below for information on both). School starts August 25th.

As many of you know or have gathered, this will be my first year as principal at Mountain View. Previously, I served as the K-12 principal for White Sulphur Springs, MT. White Sulphur Springs was an amazing place but we are looking forward to settling into Red Lodge to raise our family. My husband, Jim, and I have three children.

My door is always open, I welcome your feedback and input on your child’s educational success, how we can continue to grow and thrive, and how we as a team can contribute to these goals. It is through partnership that your child will thrive academically and socially.

We ask that each student is prepared to learn every day; the following principles will help set us up for success:

• Follow the Path of the Ram by: being safe, persevering, acting with integrity, be respectful, and be responsible.

• Come to school on time, everyday! Instruction Tuesday through Friday begins for K-3 at 8:15 and at 8:05 for 4-5. On Monday we have a late start, instruction begins at 9:00 for everyone. Bus pick up time on Monday is at regular time. Students are welcome from 8:00 to 9:00 on Monday.
• School is
out for K-3 at 3:25 and at 3:30 for 4-5.
• Please review the handbook with your child so he or she understands the expectations and can ask questions if they arise.
