A Note from Mrs. Schrecker
Dear Mountain View Family and Friends,
    It is with deep regret that I must inform you that this is my last year serving as Principal of Mountain View Elementary.  I will be relocating with my family to Arizona in July.  My time at Mountain View has been absolutely incredible!  The staff, students and parent community are second to none.  It has been my pleasure to watch the Mountain View Elementary Community embrace STEAM via our MakerSpace initiative and I am so very proud of the work that has been done.  
    The process for identifying a new Principal will begin soon.   I will work closely with the new Principal to ensure a smooth transition and a positive start to the 2015-16 school year. 
Michelle Schrecker
Principal, Mountain View Elementary

Coding with Kids

Fortunately, in the last few years, a number of apps, software, and guides have been produced that make the often-complex subject of computer coding easy to grasp for young learners. So where to begin? Click here for a few resources to share with your children to help them start learning about programming.

MakerSpace Donations
Mountain View's MakerSpace will provide an avenue to integrate the Arts and 21st Century skills to create STEAM opportunities for students.

MVES Partners with UMW

In partnership with the University of Mary Washington (UMW), College of Education, Mountain View Elementary is the first elementary school in Prince William County to create a curriculum-focused MakerSpace. This innovative space is designed to encourage the use of current and emerging technology tools that support creativity, innovation, and personal engagement within the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields.
This MakerSpace, joined together with the Library, Computer Lab, and Broadcast Room, will provide an avenue for teachers and students to:
  • create STEM experiences, integrated with the Arts and 21st Century skills to create STEAM.
  • have open access to current and emerging technologies.
  • use experiential learning and authentic investigative practice, allowing learners to share, discuss, and compare new creations.
  • incorporate 21st century skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication, project and resource management, creativity, and adaptability within important curricular content to enhance student performance.
Opportunities for our school community to participate and support our MakerSpace are welcome!!

Get Involved - Volunteer!
There are numerous opportunities to get involved with our MakerSpace and S.T.E.A.M. initiative and your support matters. Lend your Expertise and/or Be a Guest Speaker! To sign-up, please visit this link:
