Dear Mountain Vista Families,
I want to take a moment to express my gratitude for your continued support through the 2023-2024 school year. Your partnership in your student’s education has made a remarkable difference in their journey filled with growth, learning, and multiple achievements. A special thank you to families who contributed to our school with their time, materials, and never-ending support. I appreciate all that you do every day for our school and our students. 
This year our students had many experiences and successes that shaped their learning:
•    Fieldtrips including UCLA, College of the Canyons, Juvenile Justice Center, Santa Barbara Zoo, Painted Pony, Fillmore High School Farm, and the Ronald Regan Presidential Museum.
•    First Lego League Robotics Competition.
•    Lunch with a Loved One.
•    Family Game Nights.
•    Pokémon Fridays, Lego Lunches, and Mine Craft Monday.
•    Counting Collections and Open Math Tasks.
•    Reading Buddies.
•    Career Day.
•    5th Grade Brunch with Loved Ones.
•    Coffee with the Cops.
•    Wildcat Buck Fridays and i-Ready rewards
Our year ended with a wonderful 5th Grade Promotion ceremony and grade level ceremonies celebrating students’ successes. Our students’ academic growth on their i-Ready Reading and Math was remarkable! Every student’s progress was celebrated! 
I am so proud of our students’ accomplishments in academics, arts, and their extracurricular sports and activities. Their passion and enthusiasm for learning and growing make Mountain Vista a fabulous place to be!
I wish you a restful summer break with memorable experiences and time with your family.
Mrs. McDaniels
