Parents Are Our Partners
Parents at Mount View School often show an interest in their child’s topic of study and often expand the project with books, family outings, lessons, selected TV programs and related activities. A great technique is having your child “teach” you.
How Parents Support Learning at Mount View School
Here are ways in which the School Council and the Staff of Mount View School think that parents can provide this support:

- Base all staff/parent contacts on mutual respect.
- Keep staff current with information they need to understand each child’s behavior and learning needs.
- Keep aware of children’s educational programs and progress.
- Check agenda daily for communication from the school.
