Welcome to Mountain View Elementary. A Great Place to Learn!
Mountain View was founded in 1979. We are proud of our heritage and have a history of excellence within our community. We are a grade three through five intermediate school and serve a diverse student population of approximately 370 students and their families. Mountain View is a small school environment and we are proud of the fact that our smaller school population helps us to know our students and families better. Together with our partner school, Tozer Primary, we are a campus that is committed to the highest levels of student engagement, educating the whole child in an environment that is safe and effective.
The vision of the Tozer/Mountain View Campus is to be a Project-Based Learning Community where all individuals collaborate to foster student learning in a safe and respectful environment.
We are committed to providing profound learning opportunities for every child every day. Our broad based and rigorous curriculum is aligned to the Colorado State Model Content Standards. Our achievement scores are above the state average in every category. "Investigations" is the core of our math instruction, where we encourage every child to act, think, and write like mathematicians. Students develop 21st Century Skills in our classrooms, and in our state of the art technology lab. We educate the whole child in an engaging and safe learning environment committed to the principles of respect for self, others, and learning.
Our mission is to develop learners who contribute to our community. We instill independence, curiosity, problem solving skills, citizenship, and the ability to communicate and collaborate with others.

Costume Guidelines for Students, Staff
Students may wear their
costume to school if they agree to adhere to the following:
Costumes should be worn over
or in conjunction with the student’s regular school attire. It should not
be the principle attire for the day.
Costumes must be in good
taste and age appropriate.
*Blood, gore, weapons, or violent depictions are not appropriate for school.
Costumes must allow for
students to be fully engaged in learning, and may not hinder the student from
being an active participant in all classroom activities, including art, music,
or physical education class.
*Overly bulky costumes, restrictive
costumes, revealing or immodest costumes, masks, excessive make-up or face
paint, or exaggerated/dangerous accessories are not appropriate for school.
Students wearing costumes
that are deemed inappropriate or disruptive to the learning process will be
asked to remove their costume or to change into appropriate attire.
If at all possible, students
should be encouraged to change into their costume just prior to the classroom
or grade level celebration. Teachers should allow for this process.
We understand that fall
celebrations and the costumes that accompany those celebrations are an
important part of our community and school culture. Our principle
mission, however, is to provide purposeful learning experiences in a safe and
effective environment that supports and encourages profound learning for every
student. We encourage our students to be active participants in their
learning as their first priority.
Please enjoy the celebrations
that are an integral part of our school community, but do so with a mind for
learning first and with safety and respect.
