Attention all Fathers and Father-figures!.  

Kindergarten through 5th Grade is an important and exciting time for our children for many reasons, and we need Watch D.O.G.S.®  (Dads oGreat Students) to be a part of these experiences.  Watch D.O.G.S. takes no special training or secret handshakes, just a desire to be involved with our children's lives, and to make a difference as a positive role model in the educational setting.

WATCH D.O.G.S. is an innovative program of the National Center for Fathering focusing on prevention of violence in our nation’s schools by using the positive influence of fathers and father-figures.  The goal is to have men spend at least one day a year at the school to be an extra set of eyes and ears, and to be a positive male role model.

Who are WATCH D.O.G.S.?  Fathers / Father-figures, Step Dads, Grandfathers, Uncles, Brothers (21 or older), Teacher’s family (sons, husbands, fiancé), Civic Organizations (Kiwanis, Rotary, etc.), Civil Servants (Police, Fire), or Corporate Partners.

WATCH D.O.G.S. benefit in many ways.  WATCH D.O.G.S. get a glimpse of students’ everyday world, gain a greater awareness of the positive impact they can have on students’ lives (academics, self esteem, social behavior), and receive smiles and high fives in the hallway. 


We are proud to announce that Mountain View is now an AVID elementary school!  

AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination.  AVID Elementary promotes student success by implementing specific skills that enable all students to be prepared and organized.  These skills are habits, behaviors, and strategies that students can learn, strengthen and maintain throughout their academic careers.  

AVID Elementary is designed to be embedded into the daily instruction of all elementary classrooms, across entire grade levels, to impact school-wide structures. Like AVID Secondary, AVID Elementary Essentials focus on the four necessary areas to ensure that all students are poised for academic success: Instruction, Culture, Leadership, and Systems.

When preparing your child (grades 4th-6th) to be an AVID Elementary student, please note that the following organizational supplies will be required:

  • 2-inch White Binder with clear plastic cover
  • Clear, 3-ring Plastic Pencil Pouch
  • 8 Color Dividers with tabs and pockets
  • Highlighters: Pink and Yellow (one each)
  • Ball Point Pens: Black, Blue, Red, and Green (one each)
  • Post-it Notes
  • Spiral Notebooks (two each)
  • Sharpened Pencils with erasers (two each)
  • Hole-punched lined paper

Please see Ms. Taylor in the office if support is needed in purchasing supplies. 


Mountain View Elementary has a very dedicated staff, bright students, and a caring parent community.  We are very proud to be a California Blue Ribbon School, California Distinguished School, and a Title I Academic Achievement Award School!
