Parking Lot Reminders

Parking sign image.jpgParents, thank you for your cooperation as we continue working to keep our parking lot safe and efficient during drop off and pick up!
As a courtesy to Mountain View Families, Claremont Presbyterian Church allows parents of children attending Mountain View Elementary School to park in their parking lot for drop-off and pick-up of children.

Please remember:

If you choose to park in the Claremont Presbyterian Church parking lot, you must ENTER the parking lot on Mountain Ave. It is not safe to have cars entering through the EXIT on Santa Clara next to the preschool playground. The church has been generous to share their parking lot with us and we do not want to lose that privilege!


Safety First!  We request that all drivers comply with these safety policies:

  1. Follow the directional arrows.
  2. Drive slowly and carefully, watching out for children and pedestrians.
  3. Walk to and from campus using only sidewalks and crosswalk – DO NOT walk through or across the Mountain View parking lot.
  4. Dispose of trash in the trash can.
  5. Supervise children at all times.


TK, K, AND Grades 1 & 2 are dismissed to an adult from their classrooms and may not use the pick-up lanes.


We would love to have more volunteers helping in the parking lot and crosswalks! Please contact Mrs. Stephanie in the office or email her at if you would like to help. Working together, we can keep our parking lot a safe place for all!


We are proud to announce that Mountain View is an AVID Certified 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 student to be an AVID Elementary student, please see list that was sent home with report card for grade specific requests & note that the following organizational supplies will be required of each student in grades 2-6:

  • 2-inch White Binder with clear plastic cover
  • 3-ring Pencil Pouch
  • 8 Color Dividers with tabs and pockets
  • Highlighters: Pink and Yellow (one of each color)
  • Ball Point Pens: Black, Blue, Red, and Green (one of each color)
  • Post-it Notes
  • Spiral Notebooks (two each for grades 2-3, four each for grades 4-6)
  • Sharpened Pencils with erasers (two each)
  • Hole-punched lined paper
  • Basic box of colored pencils
  • Basic box of markers
  • Small personal pencil sharpener
  • Eraser
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick

Please see Ms. Cruz-Soto in the office if support is needed in purchasing supplies. 


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.
