Principal's Message

Endings and Beginnings


Well here we are!  The final Friday Messenger of the 2020-21 school year!  I write this message to thank each and every one of you for the support you have provided your child as a learner this year through extremely challenging times.  As we know with every ending comes new beginnings!  We celebrated our K graduation into “big kid school" yesterday with a beautiful ceremony that was recorded for the Kindergarten families to access. And in the afternoon, the whole school and our Gr. 6 families participated in a virtual Farewell to see this incredible group of leaders off on their journey into junior high.  Both groups are so well prepared for what comes next for them, and we all wish them the very best success with their transitions in the fall. 
Our school is seeing new beginnings as well with that fantastic new coat of paint going up in the interior halls and offices that we hope will play up our Mount View mountain brand of Climbing to Higher Heights: Every Step Counts.  Many of our staff members will be returning but some may be changing grade groupings depending on how our registration looks in the fall.  As you know, we are sometimes adjusting classes right through September, although we always hope not to have too many surprises. 
Some of our staff, like our K's and 6's are also off on new adventures!  We congratulate Ms. Oppenheim and her husband on their soon to arrive baby!  Ms. Oppenheim will be spending next year celebrating her new beginning as a mom—the most important job of them all!  
We'd also like to congratulate Ms. Heggie, as she was the successful applicant over at Fairview Middle School, and she will be taking on a whole new beginning with the “really big kids" as a Gr. 8 Humanities teacher. We know that the students will benefit from the incredible skills, understanding and knowledge that Ms. Heggie has honed in her elementary teaching years.   
I have also had a surprise beginning this week when I was offered an opportunity to return to my home province of BC as a principal in the Invermere area.  I have loved every minute working with the community of Mount View and it is very hard to be leaving such an incredible group of kind students, caring parents and committed staff. However, I know that as I was welcomed with open arms and warmth, so will the next lucky principal who will learn and grow with the MVS community.  I have many ties to Calgary, so I know I will be back to visit, and I hope I can poke my head in to see how the paint job looks, to see how those K's are doing as Gr. 1 leaders, and to see how all of the students have embraced the maturity that creeps in with every new school year.  I thank you, from the bottom of my heart for sharing your community with me.  
Thank You!
