From the Desk of the Principal

Dear Parents;

Hope you all had a great Spring Break! Now that we are back...testing season for Grades 3-5 starts next week for Grade 3, with Grade 4 starting April 24 and we will finish off with Grade 5 starting May 8.

Speaking of testing, it is with much pride that I share with all parents that Mission View is no longer in School Improvement.  According to the new ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) measures, Mission View is in the top 3 elementary schools in Wenatchee. I am so proud of this staff and our students for this vast improvement in student achievement. This ties in with the testing that is about to occur as ESSA take our Spring Testing (Smarter Balance) results to measure our progress along with attendance.  If you have received a letter from me in the past regarding attendance you may know now why this is occurring. We simply are trying to get better each year with our student achievement, student growth, and student attendance rates.

I have some more great news to share with you all as well.  On April 16, our own Instructional Coach, Mrs. Alicen Gaytley will be presented the Chelan County Excellence Award.  This is a very prestigious award going to a very deserving staff member.

On another note, our Kindergarten registration starts next week, April 16.  If you have or know of students that will be attending Mission View next year, please come in a get them registered for the fall.

Starting tomorrow we will be bringing back our Paw-Pack Run Club, where the students run around our modified track on Tuesday and Thursday during their lunch recess and get rewarded for the number of laps they complete.  This is to prepare our students for the Apple Blossom Fun Run held on Saturday, May 5, which many of our students have participated in the past. For the past two years of doing this, Mission View has either the highest or second highest attendance of any school and we get cash rewards for that. If your son or daughter is interested in doing this you can simply register them online.  Here is the link that will get you there if you are interested in registering your son(s)/daughter(s). https://www.confluencehealth.org/abr/  

Then on May 17 at 3:30 we will have our yearly Elementary Track Meet up on the High School Track.  Mission View track students have always made a great showing at these events.

Finally, on May 24 we will have our yearly Mission View BBQ starting at 10:35.  You are all invited to come and enjoy a lunch with your child.

Educationally,

Jeff Jaeger
