The mission of Mountain View Elementary School, in cooperation with the community, is to provide a safe, positive environment where children build skills, knowledge, and character needed for lifelong learning.
Greenville Drive All Stars Reading Program
Grades 3rd – 5th – This program is currently running through March 17. Students must read four approved books over the five week period. The student will record books on the participation form, have a parent sign the form and return it to school by March 17th to be submitted to the Greenville Drive. Participants who read 4 books or more will receive a free ticket to the Greenville Drive game on Tuesday, April 22nd, free t-shirt, and get to walk in a parade on Flour Field before the game.
Students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade will be involved with SCPASS Testing on March 18 and 19, 2014. In order to provide the best testing environment for our students, parents/volunteers/visitors will not be allowed in the school building during testing. In addition, please do not schedule any doctor/dentist appointments or other out-of-school functions during testing. Students should not bring any electronic devices into the classroom during testing. Lastly, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders who are tardy on testing days will NOT be allowed to enter his/her classroom once testing has begun. Thank your for your cooperation!
Important Reminder: Tardy Policy
Please remember that GCS tardy policy states that children must be in their classrooms when the 8:00 bell rings. All students who are tardy require a parent to accompany them into the building to receive a tardy pass
Common Core Standards
This is the year that all South Carolina public schools transition to the Common Core State Standards in the areas of English Language Arts (Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking and Language) and Mathematics. Full implementation will take place during the 2014-15 school year. The Common Core is simply a list of what students in grades K-12 should know and be able to do at the end of each grade. The Common Core is designed to help to ensure that students are prepared for the next grade and that students exiting high school are prepared to enter college or the workforce. Standards for other subjects such as Science, Social Studies, Arts, etc. will still be created and maintained at the state level. If you would like to see the Common Core Standards that are being taught to your children, click here.
