Important Schedule Change - Please read!

On November 4, 2015, Mountview Middle School WILL be in session. The day is currently listed as a professional development day for the WRSD and other schools will not be in session on November 4th. As we plan ahead for the move to the new school, we intend to reschedule the November day in the spring. This will allow us to have a full day of school, without students, to set up classrooms in the new school. The tentative plan to move move to our new school will be mid-April 2016. Much work needs to be done between now and our intended move date, so the official move date and rescheduled November professional development day have not be set. As we get closer to the move, we will be sure to share the dates and plans associated with our move to the new school. Again, remember that Mountview WILL be in session on November 4th, 2015.

Thank you in advance for your support. We are looking forward to an exciting time in the history of Mountview and the Town of Holden.

 Attention all parents: this year, we have several students in our school with severe food allergies. Please click here to read an important letter containing information related to food allergies. Also, please click here to view a list of allowed snack/food items to send to school with your child. We hope that everyone will be cooperative in this venture, so that we can help to ensure the safety of all Mountview students.

Attention parents: when sending in notes to the office, please be sure to include your child's first and last name. Parents and children often have different last names and parental signatures can be difficult to read. Including both names helps to eliminate any confusion.

 Attention parents/guardians of 7th grade students: please click here to read a letter from Superintendent McCall regarding criteria for Grade 8 placement in Algebra classes.

Important information regarding morning extra help - please read!

Attention all students and parents: morning extra help does not begin until 7:30. In fact, some teachers do not start their extra help until 7:40 or 7:45. Students should come into the office to see if their teacher is available. If not, students must wait outside until their teacher is ready for students, because there is no supervision available inside the building. With the onset of cold weather, students should dress appropriately for waiting outside. 

Important Information Regarding Private HS Registration Process:

If you are planning to have your child attend a private/ independent school in high school, please follow the guidelines below to ensure that paperwork is completed by Mountview staff and mailed in a timely manner:
1. Allow five school days for requests to be processed.
2. Sign the transcript release allowing the school to mail records to the receiving school.
3. Be sure to include a stamped and addressed envelope to the receiving school.
Please contact Erik Githmark at Erik_Githmark@wrsd.net if you have any questions. 

Attention 7th Grade: the word of the week is differentiate - a person or thing can be made different in some way.

Did you miss the informational meeting on the Creative Writing Club? Don't worry - you haven't missed the opportunity to join! Attend our next meeting, this Wednesday after school in Room 314, or stop in to Room 312 on Wednesday or Friday morning. All are welcome!



On Monday, October 19th, 2015, 8th grade students will have the opportunity to visit Monty Tech to tour the facility and begin to make decisions about their future education. Students will leave Mountview  at 9:30am, travel by bus to Monty Tech, and return to Mountview at approximately 2:00pm. Students will be able to go home from Mountview by their usual dismissal method. Monty Tech will provide a lunch for all students attending this event. Students wishing to attend this event MUST return a signed permission slip by Friday October 9th. Please see Mr. McCarthy in the office for a permission slip and feel free to contact Mr. McCarthy or Monty Tech with any questions.

Monty Tech will also be hosting a Career Awareness Night at Monty Tech later that same evening for parents and students. The program will be held on Monday October 19th from 6:30pm til 8:30pm. This is an opportunity for both parents and students to tour the facility and ask questions.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to explore another option for your student's high school education!


As of September 9, we will be in need of a morning crossing guard to safely cross students in front of school on Shrewsbury Street from 7:30-8:10 each morning. If you are interested or would like more information, please call principal Erik Githmark at 508-829-5577 or by email at Erik_Githmark@wrsd.net

Homework Requests

FYI, homework requests are not done until a student has been absent for three days. Please request the homework when you call your child in sick on the morning of the third day. Many teachers post assignments on their websites, so it is a good idea to check there first whenever your child is absent.
