Kindergarten Registration
   Calling all parents of upcoming Mountain View Elementary Kindergarten students! Kindergarten registration for the 2014–15 school year is set for Thursday, April 10 from 9:30am-3:30pm and Thursday, April 24 from 1:00-5:00pm at individual schools. Please bring your child, your child’s birth certificate, your child’s Social Security card, Physical/Immunization record, two forms of identification of parent/guardian registering the child and proof of address with you (contract/deed or rental agreement)! This a great opportunity for our Kindergarten staff to get to know you and your child.   Your child will be given a brief academic screening during registration. 
 
    It is essential that you register your child for Kindergarten early. If for some reason you are not available to register your child during the registration dates, please call our office staff and make an appointment to register on an alternate date.   Staffing of Kindergarten Teachers is determined by the number of Kindergarten students registered. We want to keep our outstanding teachers on staff at MVES and if we have to hire more, we want to conduct our interviews early so that we are able to hire the most qualified candidates!! 

     During the kindergarten registration days, schools will ask parents of children who speak or understand a different first language, in addition to or instead of English, to call Central Registration to make an appointment for an English language evaluation. This evaluation helps determine the language support children might need to be successful in school.

     Beginning Friday, April 25, English language learners not yet registered at school, will be both registered and evaluated at Central Registration. Parents should call the Western Central Registration location at the Stonewall Middle School site at 571.402.3800. Stonewall Middle School is located at 10100 Lomond Drive in Manassas.

The Rewards of Reading
The seeds for success in the classroom are sown at home. Encouraging children to read at home is one of the
most powerful ways that parents can support students’ learning. Just 15 minutes of reading at home per day
can make a difference in students’ reading fluency. Prioritize reading with these tips: The Rewards of Reading.

Parent Portal - The Great Student Login!
MVES is conducting "The Great Login"! Students should login to Parent Portal and change their password (one login/password is used for both Parent Portal and the MVES website). Please read the directions (click here) and assist your child as needed. If students have previously changed their password from their birthday, they do not need to change it again. As many of our students are "online", this would be a great opportunity to discuss online safety. Students are to return their password information to their teacher.

2013 - 2014 Guidelines for Birthday Celebrations
This year, one of our school-wide focus areas is wellness. The MVES Leadership Team, Parent Advisory Council, and parent focus groups have been discussing ways in which we can reduce the frequency that students are introduced to sugary foods at school and reduce the frequency that students with food allergies are being exposed to allergens while at school. Please click here to review the guidelines that will be in effect for the 2013-14 school year. 

Study Island
Students have access to a great reading resource to learn throughout the year and prepare for the state standardized tests (SOL's).  The school purchased, web-based program called Study Island, is accessible to students from school or home. All students in grades 4 - 5 have a username and password which is given out by the classroom teacher. Click here for an overview of the program. 

We are excited about the benefits this program can bring to our students, and we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity by using Study Island. Please feel free to contact Study Island at 800-419-3191 or
