I am thrilled to share the new staffing update with you that we will now have an Assistant Principal as an addition to our Admin team at MVS. Ms. Allyson Heggie is the successful candidate for the position and will join us on October 11.


Welcome back to Mount View, Ms. Heggie  !!! Please read her letter of introduction below.


Dear Parents and Mount View School Community Members,


It is my pleasure and honour to introduce myself as Assistant Principal of Mount View School. I am extremely proud and excited to join this K-6 school community and to support our students and their families. This is the start of my 10th year in education. My career began in the Rocky View School Division as an elementary teacher. During that time, I taught grades 1 through 3, primarily. I was also the Department Head of Early Literacy and Literacy Development. My career grew and evolved as I joined the Calgary Board of Education 5 years ago and served as an elementary teacher at Mount View School. I am excited to be returning to such a wonderful community after a year away working in grade 9 Humanities and being the Literacy Lead Teacher for Fairview School.


Like you, I am a parent as well. My daughter, Ivy, has just begun her grade 1 year and my son, Felix, is in preschool. As I watch them beginning to discover themselves as learners, my empathy and excitement has grown. I hope that they find adults in their schools who care about them academically, emotionally and as human beings. One parent to another, I will make every effort to help your child reach their fullest potential and feel cared for.


I view education as a life-long process and I will continue to learn about best practices for the students of Mount View School. Most importantly, I bring a belief that students are at the centre of my work and because of that, I will bring my experience, openness to learn and child-centered approach to support our students. I look forward to learning the strengths that the students of Mount View have. Working together, we will continue to move the students of Mount View School through rich learning experiences to spark curiosity.


I believe that great schools are a result of great teachers, staff, parents, and community members. It is my goal to help grow our purposeful community through collective efficacy, communication, professional development, and collaboration with staff, and all community members, to continue to build and foster the tremendous culture embedded at Mount View School. I look forward to being a member of the administrative team and to working closely with you for the success of your child.


Thank you and I look forward to getting to know you better.



Ms. Allyson Heggie​
