ThoughtExchange opens now: New school name and principal attributes

In 2015, the Mountain View Whisman School District Board of Trustees voted to open a neighborhood school next to the former Slater Elementary. The District soon will begin construction on a new school on N. Whisman Rd. This new school will open in August 2019 for grades kindergarten through 5.

As we prepare to open this new school, we want to hear your opinions about the important attributes and contributions of the potential person/namesake for this new school, as well as the traits of its new principal.

Look for a link in your email on Feb. 28 to join the ThoughtExchange conversation or visit this link  to join in before March 16.

MVEF Survey

MVEF needs your feedback! Please consider taking the survey below to share with MVEF your thoughts on the programs they fund, and how they communicate with you. The survey should not take more than a few minutes to complete and all results are compiled anonymously. MVEF will use the results to improve their communication with the community and ensure their funding has a high impact on education in our district. Thank you!Please complete the survey by March 24th.

SARC Notice

All public schools receiving state funding are required to prepare and distribute a SARC (School Accountability Report Card). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each school. SARCs are published each year and contain data from the previous school year.

There are several ways to view your school’s SARC:

  • Visit the MVWSD elementary schools’ and middle schools’ webpages on and click on your school’s SARC links, for both English and Spanish.

  • Go to the CDE Find a SARC Web page. This CDE Web page provides actual SARC reports or SARC Web links to the school or district website where the school's SARC is located.

  • If you would like to obtain a printed copy in Spanish or English, please see your child’s school.

Graham Choirs: Special Information

Most incoming 6th graders who want choir as their elective should choose Graham Treble or Tenor/Bass Choir, which are the mixed level choruses open to all students. However, there may be a few who are musically ready for more of a challenge. If you feel you fall into this category, please contact Mrs. Gaderlund for an appointment to be assessed. Assessments will take place after school on Thursday April 5th at Graham. The assessment will last about 10 minutes. Students will be placed in the choir based on musical readiness, NOT on the number of years in choir. Please bring the attached form to your assessment.
