A Message from our Principal

Dear Parents,

I am very excited to continue as the principal of Mountain View Elementary. Working each and every day with your children is truly rewarding as a professional. With your help and the teamwork among our teachers and staff, I know we will be one of the finest schools in all of southern Arizona. Communication will be the key to that effort. I understand what a privilege, honor, and great responsibility it is to have your children in our school each and every day. We will make your children our top priority and strive towards meeting all of their social, emotional, educational, and physical needs when they are in our care. Please do all that you can to have your child at school on time each and every day. Establishing consistent eating and sleeping habits will also help our teachers and staff teach your children most effectively. Finally, help us continue to educate your children about our Six Pillars of Character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. I know it will be a wonderful and successful school year. Go, Mountain Lions!

Gratefully, Your Partner In Education,

Principal Jackson
