Principal's Message

Braving the weather . . . and the second semester!

  We have some truly exciting events on the horizon for both our high school students and some middle school students as well.  As we work to provide a lasting experience for all of our students we have some special presentations coming soon.

   Rachel’s Challenge is coming!  On February 19 middle school students will join high school students here in the MVHS auditorium for a special presentation about Rachel Scott and the 1999 Columbine shooting and the lasting legacy that her family has built in Rachel’s honor.  In order to provide an opportunity for parents and younger family members to get to know Rachel and the person she was and her lasting legacy, there will be an evening presentation here at MVHS also on February 19 in the MVHS auditorium. Thanks again to our local Wyoming FCCLA State Advisor Angela Sweep for bringing Rachel’s Challenge back to MVHS.

   We also have our bi-annual career fair scheduled for the week before spring break.  Thanks to Mrs. Lupher’s special research efforts, on the afternoon of March 14, our high school students and incoming ninth graders will be participating in a special career fair / financial literacy event called Reality Town!  We will be inviting members of our community to participate in this event in support of our students.

   We appreciate the support of the community in attending and helping with these special events for our students here at Mountain View High School. 

   As a building, district, and community we also need to be proud of our 93.2% graduation rate for the class of 2018. Great job to all the teachers, staff, and parents in this district who help us reach such an important milestone for our grads!  

   During the 2017 Legislative session, changes were signed into law related to high school students taking college level coursework and how that coursework would be calculated into students’ Hathaway GPA.  Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year all districts are required to use a weighted Hathaway GPA for all +1000 level and above dual and concurrent courses.  A student receiving an A in a +1000 level college course will receive a 5.0 for their Hathaway GPA for that course; A B in a +1000 level course will count as a 4.0 for that course, and so on.  This weighted GPA will be used to determine a student’s Hathaway scholarship eligibility only, and will NOT be used to determine valedictorian or salutatorian status, or other end of year honors, including class rank. 

Thanks for having your child be a part of what we are doing here at MVHS.  I am excited looking forward to our incoming students for the 2017-2018 school year as we continue on our path to be Second to None.
