Principal's Message

Braving the weather . . . and the second semester!

  After our snow day on March 14, we have quite a few adjustments to make.  The make up day for the snow day in March will be May 10, 2019.  This was previously scheduled as a No Students / Staff Professional Development Day.  This day will be a purple day to make up for the purple day we missed on the snow day.

   We would also like to thank all of our community partners who were ready to assist us with our bi-annual career fair, also scheduled on March 14.  Unfortunately, Reality Town had to be re-scheduled as well.  Right now we are looking at Thursday, April 18 as a possible replacement date.  More information to follow as we are really excited to have our students experience Reality Town. 

   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 (probably) April 18, 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.

Ben Carr, Principal
