MVE Celebrate with Veterans!

On November 10th, Mountain View hosted 14 veterans and their families for our annual Veterans' Day Celebration!  We had vets from the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force, and who had served in Vietnam, Operations JUST CAUSE, DESERT STORM, IRAQI FREEDOM AND ENDURING FREEDOM - it was quite an event!  More importantly, they were our schools, dads, moms and grandpas! 

After leading the school in the Pledge of Alligence,our 2nd grade leaders, MVE's Cub Club, introduced the Vets and said a little about their distingushed military careers!  Then, all the students in the school sang a beautiful song to our Veterans, directed by out AMAZING music teacher, Mrs. Karlie Karter!  Finally, the Vets were invited into classrooms to share about their experiences, and students were given the ability, first-hand, to ask, see, hear and feel what it was like to be in the Armed Forces.

Click me if you would like to see the kids singing the song!

Thank you Veterans for coming and sharing!

LOVE,

MVE

Working through the recent winter break, the Douglas County School District Board of Education has kicked off its search for DCSD’s next permanent superintendent. Following a thorough vetting of potential search firms, Ray & Associates (no relation to Board Director David Ray) has been hired to conduct the national search. The cost of the firm, excluding travel expenses, is $40,000. The money will come from the school board's budget, which is used for costs such as legal expenses and conferences.
