Our CASA Open House

Our Case Open House

We are very excited to share with you all, information on a project we've undertaken here in the CLC. We have been given an opportunity to enhance some of our space through our partnership with University Neighborhood Partners (UNP). Google and UNP are sponsoring the creation of eight Our CASA (Communities Aspiring, Succeeding, Achieving) locations across the west side of Salt Lake, and The Glendale + Mt. View CLC will be the home of the largest Our CASA so far! Although we do not have a solid date yet, we will be hosting a Grand Opening press event this Spring honoring the work and contributions of all those involved in creating these spaces.

 

Our CASAs (formally called College Lounges) are spaces dedicated to paving educational pathways in the lives all those who enter. This program is a wonderful alignment of the values of community school work and the goal of creating a college-minded student body. Our CASAs are spaces where people of all ages can come and be supported on their paths toward self-actualization and education. This might be mentoring students in the Learning Lab, parents earning their GEDs through the Distance Education program, families learning English and studying to become U.S. Citizens, or college preparation workshops for our Middle and High School students. Most Our CASA locations are starting from the ground up, and have to dedicate funds to establish space and partnerships to provide these services. We are fortunate to have many of these programs already in place, so we are able to use the money donated by UNP and Google to make improvements to the space where all this programming already takes place: rooms 193 & 194 of the CLC.

 

A committee of dedicated staff and community partners surveyed parents, students, administration, and program providers to create a proposal for the most meaningful way to utilize this donation. At the heart of Our CASA will be a wall mural designed by Justin Johnson but created through community collaboration. We will be purchasing additional furniture pieces, hanging things on walls, adding a reading corner, hanging bulletin boards and working on a community asset map. We are dedicated to creating a space which will be warm and inviting to everyone. When more information is available about the date of our grand opening, we will be sure to pass it along!

Winter Sing-a-long

Winter Sing-a-long

 

Students at Mountain View Elementary entertained proud parents, grandparents, family members, and friends during a winter sing- along assembly before the Holiday break.  The auditorium was filled to capacity with excited and enthusiastic students, staff and parents as they gathered together to listen to each grade level perform their songs.

Under the direction of music teacher Tina Misaka, the students sang This is my Wish by Jordin Sparks. This song has a beautiful message about peace on earth for every boy and girl. Following this song the audience heard a medley of winter- and holiday-themed songs from each grade level. Some students and staff wore Santa hats while a few even sported sombreros, sunglasses, and Frosty the Snowman cutouts as the crowd broke into smiles and song throughout the duration of the concert. Each grade level showed their personalities while: singing, dancing, and jingle bell hopping. This assembly was a wonderful way to spread festive holiday cheer to all.

Visitors to Mountain View Elementary

Visitors to Mountain View

Mountain View has had many visitors this school year starting with Award Winning Author Duncan Tonatiuah. On September 20th Duncan Tonatiuah came to Mountain View and read one of his books to the school community.  It was a privilege to have him at our school.  He is the author-illustrator of The Princess and the Warrior, Funny Bones, Separate Is Never Equal, Pancho Rabbit and the Coyote, Diego Rivera: His World and Ours and Dear Primo. His aim is to create images and stories that honor the past, but that are relevant to people, specifically children, nowadays.

 With the great energy from the Achievement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program that Mountain View has adopted has come with many visitors from the program to see how teachers are implementing strategies to help improve writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading.

 Our most recent visit included 9 Brazilian School Principals whom met with Principal Kenneth Limb and Assistant Principal Chelsea Malouf to learn about best practices in integrating non-English speaking students, and supporting their academic and social success in school. They also observed classroom teachers

 The recent visits have been successful and have been able to showcase effective teaching methods and skills on hand within our classrooms to members of AVID, international educators and community members.

Golden Rule Assembly

Golden Rule Assembly  Golden Rule Assembly  Golden Rule Assembly

Golden Rule Assembly

How do we apply our attention to the Golden Rule to reduce “wrecking behavior” (bullying) and support “building behavior” in our classrooms? On October 7th Mountain View Students attended a Golden Rule Assembly to learn how to apply this rule through magic. Magician Steffan Soule focuses on the power of attention and how we can use our attention to apply the Golden Rule in a variety of situations. While demonstrating magic effects that visually relate to the curriculum, Steffan transfers methods for anti-bullying in an exciting, positive and educational assembly.

So what is the Golden Rule?  Simply put it’s “do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”  Sounds simple enough, but how does it play into building a safe and confident classroom?  It’s a principle that if we push to teach our students it can help make bullying disappear from our classrooms, if not our schools.  Bullying is a unique action, there’s no one reason why someone chooses to bully.  The reason for a child to bully other kids can vary for each individual.  What isn’t different though for each individual victim of bullying is the outcome, fear of it happening again.  This disrupts the safety of a classroom and wrecks a student’s “behavior balloon”.  Their attention will be elsewhere and not on what they need to learn. Soule related bullying to a balloon and its enemy– an 18-inch needle. He quickly popped the balloon with the needle. He then produced another balloon and slid the needle through the balloon. As students gasped, he told them they could avoid violence by standing strong. After that, the balloon didn’t pop, but disappeared. “We can make bullying disappear,” Soule said.

At the end of the assembly Steffan talked about how the Golden Rule is inclusive of all different traditions, philosophies and religions. Different versions or formulations of the Golden Rule can be found everywhere: in religious and secular texts, works of art, song lyrics, the words of world leaders and more. Steffan than presented a list for each teacher to hang in their room to remind students to follow the Golden Rule and stop bullying.  A fifth grade student expressed how Soule gave a great message and feels more equipped to handle bullying and follow the Golden Rule.

Back to School Carnival 2016

Mountain View Faculty   Free books from the public library.

 

On Friday, August 26th approximately 1,000 attendees comprised of students from both Mountain View Elementary and Glendale Middle School, along with their families and members of the local community participated in an evening of food, games, and fun on the Mountain View playground. Families enjoyed a pre-prepared dinner catered by the Utah Food Bank.  Afterwards the participants were treated to more than enough sweets, such as fresh snow cones and hand-spun cotton candy, to ensure a sugar rush to last them through the evening.

This event was a wonderful opportunity for families to visit with many of the Mountain View and Glendale teachers along with campus partners to learn more about the upcoming 2016-2017 school year.

“The campus back to school carnival is intended to help build relationships between families and school staff and to also help inform them of the wonderful programs and supports that exist in their community, both here on our campus and in other key community locations in Glendale.” -Keri Taddie, The Community Learning Center Coordinator.

Much of the school staff supported the event and directly contributed to the overall success of the carnival. Faculty and staff could be found in the schoolyard volunteering with activities such as supervising the events and games to making balloon animals, and even going as far as taking turns in the dunk tank, including Principals Ken Limb from Mountain View and Chris Gesteland from Glendale.
