Dear Mountain View Families,

The 2019-2020 school year was one we will never forget. Our dedicated staff worked tirelessly to keep students engaged in learning at home. I am so proud of the work our students did with their online learning experience. We know it was not perfect, and we know technology can be frustrating at times. I want to thank our wonderful parents and families for learning Clever, Microsoft Teams, and Flipgrid right along with their students. It was a team effort between home and school to ensure our students could continue learning.

There are still many unknowns on what next year will look like. The Quincy School District is committed to providing the best options of learning for our students and families, along with providing safety. We can’t predict what the COVID pandemic will look like in August and September. Our desire is to have our students at school learning with our teachers. However, we all know that student and staff safety is our top priority.

I want to continue to urge families to maintain social distancing and wear protective masks whenever outside your own home. We have had quite a few cases in Quincy, and in order to return to school and protect our students and families, our entire community needs to do their part.

Students will be keeping their Chromebooks over the summer. Have your student log into their Clever account a few times a week to play math and reading games. It is also important to keep them reading, at least 20 minutes every day. Research shows that over a typical summer, students lose two months of learning. Since we have not been engaged in full-day learning since March, students can lose twice that amount of learning. It is important to maintain reading and math skills, so students are more prepared when school does resume.

I want to congratulate our fifth-grade students on becoming middle school students. We will miss you and we all know you will have a positive middle school experience. Please come back to visit us. I also want to congratulate our kindergarten students. We were not able to have our kindergarten promotion assembly, so check out the kindergarten video on our Facebook page. It is very special.

I also would like to congratulate Mrs. Smelser and Mrs. Luebber on their retirement, as well as Mrs. Wright in her new adventure in preschool. They will all be missed!!

We will continue to keep everyone updated on our plans for fall.
I hope everyone has a safe and fun summer. Enjoy the sun and time with family.

Sincerely,
Tiffany Viall
Principal


Estimadas familias de Mountain View,

El año escolar 2019-2020 fue uno que nunca olvidaremos. Nuestro personal dedicado trabajó incansablemente para mantener a los estudiantes interesados en aprender en casa. Estoy muy orgulloso del trabajo que hicieron nuestros estudiantes con su experiencia de aprendizaje en línea. Sabemos que no fue perfecto, y sabemos que la tecnología puede ser frustrante a veces. Quiero agradecer a nuestros maravillosos padres y familias por aprender Clever, Microsoft Teams y Flipgrid junto con sus alumnos. Fue un esfuerzo de equipo entre el hogar y la escuela asegurar que nuestros estudiantes pudieran continuar aprendiendo.

Todavía hay muchas incógnitas sobre cómo será el próximo año. El Distrito Escolar de Quincy se compromete a proporcionar las mejores opciones de aprendizaje para nuestros estudiantes y familias, además de brindar seguridad. No podemos predecir cómo será la pandemia de COVID en agosto y septiembre. Nuestro deseo es que nuestros estudiantes en la escuela aprendan con nuestros maestros. Sin embargo, todos sabemos que la seguridad de los estudiantes y el personal es nuestra principal prioridad.

Quiero seguir instando a las familias a mantener el distanciamiento social y usar máscaras protectoras cuando estén fuera de su hogar. Hemos tenido bastantes casos en Quincy, y para poder regresar a la escuela y proteger a nuestros estudiantes y familias, toda nuestra comunidad necesita hacer su parte.

Los estudiantes mantendrán sus Chromebooks durante el verano. Haga que su estudiante inicie sesión en su cuenta Clever varias veces por semana para jugar juegos de matemáticas y lectura. También es importante mantenerlos leyendo, al menos 20 minutos todos los días. La investigación muestra que durante un verano típico, los estudiantes pierden dos meses de aprendizaje. Como no hemos participado en el aprendizaje de todo el día desde marzo, los estudiantes pueden perder el doble de esa cantidad de aprendizaje. Es importante mantener las habilidades de lectura y matemáticas, para que los estudiantes estén más preparados cuando la escuela se reanude.

Quiero felicitar a nuestros estudiantes de quinto grado por convertirse en estudiantes de secundaria. Te extrañaremos y todos sabemos que tendrás una experiencia positiva en la escuela intermedia. Por favor, vuelve a visitarnos. También quiero felicitar a nuestros estudiantes de kinder. No pudimos tener nuestra asamblea de promoción de kinder, así que mira el video de kinder en nuestra página de Facebook. Es muy especial.

También me gustaría felicitar a la Sra. Smelser y la Sra. Luebber por su retiro, así como a la Sra. Wright en su nueva aventura en el preescolar. ¡Todos los extrañaremos!

Continuaremos manteniendo a todos actualizados sobre nuestros planes para el otoño.

Espero que todos tengan un verano seguro y divertido. Disfruta del sol y el tiempo con la familia.

 

Sinceramente,

Tiffany Viall

Summer

This summer may look different than past summers. Summer activities during COVID-19 aren’t quite the same. But that doesn’t mean summer 2020 has to be a bummer. Don’t focus on all the summer activities you can’t do—instead, think positive, and look at all the fun things you can do!

In my last Flipgrid video "Summer Fun" I showed you how to get to our Counseling Page on Mountain View’s website. If you haven’t had a chance to visit, you will find virtual tours of famous amusement parks, museums, landmarks, zoos and aquariums, the space center and links to libraries and read aloud websites. Remember it is super-duper important to our physical and mental health to get outside and get moving so try to limit screen time.

 

I have included some other fun summer activities that promote social emotional development:
Reading, Writing a creating story, Stretching
Exercising, Going on a walk, Riding your bike, Taking a hike
Growing a garden, Making a scrapbook
Making a chore chart to create structure in your home, Painting/Drawing
Baking Making sidewalk chalk art, Baking/Cooking

 

You can also have fun with your family and friends by:
Camping out in the backyard Making Smores, Having a water balloon fight
Making an outdoor movie night, Going Fishing, Having a dance party
Trying face painting, Having a family game night, Having a backyard picnic, Karaoke Party

 

Can you think of something other fun activities that I forgot?

 

I hope you have a great summer, and I can’t wait to see you all next year!
Mrs. Barnett, School Counselor


Este verano puede parecer diferente a los veranos pasados. Las actividades de verano durante COVID-19 no son lo mismo. Pero eso no significa que el verano 2020 tenga que ser un fastidio. No se concentre en todas las actividades de verano que no puede hacer; en cambio, ¡piense positivamente y vea todas las cosas divertidas que puede hacer!

En mi último video de Flipgrid "Summer Fun" te mostré cómo llegar a nuestra página de asesoramiento en el sitio web de Mountain View. Si no ha tenido la oportunidad de visitar, encontrará recorridos virtuales de famosos parques de atracciones, museos, lugares de interés, zoológicos y acuarios, el centro espacial y enlaces a bibliotecas y leer en voz alta sitios web. Recuerde que es muy importante para nuestra salud física y mental salir y moverse, así que trate de limitar el tiempo frente a la pantalla.

E incluido otras actividades divertidas de verano que promueven el desarrollo social emocional:
Leyendo, Escribir una historia creativa, Estiramiento, Ejercicio, Yendo a Camina,r Andar en Bicicleta, Ir en una Caminata
Cultivando un Jardín, Hacer un álbum de recortes, Hacer una tabla de quehaceres para crear estructuras en su hogar, Pintando/Dibujando Hornear/Cocinar

También puedes divertirte con tu familia y amigos al:
Acampando en el patio trasero, Haciendo Smores, Tener una pelea con globos de agua
Hacer una noche de cine a aire libre, Ir de Pesca, Tener una fiesta de baile
Tratando de pintar la cara, Noche de Juegos en Familia, Tener un picnic en el patio, Fiesta de karaoke

Puedes pensar en otras actividades divertidas que olvide?

Resources for Continuous Learning
In response to school closures due to COVID-19, OSPI content experts have curated a selection of links to external organizations providing high-quality online educational materials – courses, lessons, videos, physical and outdoor activity suggestions, etc. Please note that in many cases, these resources are free to use online but are not openly licensed for wide scale reuse and adaptation. These resources were carefully chosen for their alignment to Washington State K–12 Learning Standards (or a recognized equivalent) and/or direct experience with effective implementation with students.

Social Distancing Guidance
Schools are closed in order to maintain social distancing and so students and staff do not spread germs to each other and to the community. Following CDC guidelines, parents and families should do their best to maintain social distancing throughout the summer. This means no large playdates, sleepovers, or parties. Parents should aim to keep their children active during the closure – taking them for walks, to the park, bike rides, and other outdoor or indoor fitness activities – but should strive to keep children out of large groups for the time being. Read more about social distancing from the state Department of Health.
