THE CHRISTMAS STORE – Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 11-12 – All students (K-3 through 12th grades) will have the opportunity to shop at the Christmas store for gifts to give to all members of their families, even pets! All items will be priced at $2 each.  Bring your money and your list to shop for your friends, family, and pets!

BUSINESS OFFICE NOTICE:  Tuition and any past due balances must be in the office by December 11th.  After tuition is one month past due, the student will not be permitted to attend class until the account is brought up-to-date.  It is very important that your account is up-to-date before the Christmas break so we can close out the books for the first semester.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact Mrs. Calvert.

PRE-SCHOOL CHRISTMAS PROGRAM:  Monday, Dec. 11th at 9:00 a.m.

ELEMENTARY CHRISTMAS PROGRAM: Monday, Dec. 11th immediately following the pre-school program. There will be a second performance of the Elementary Program at 6:00 that evening.

The Elementary program is entitled, “Counting Down to Christmas.” Caleb’s mom has offered to host this year’s Sunday School Christmas party at their home.  Sounds great, but….Caleb’s mom, Mrs. Marlin, is a legendary no-nonsense “better get it right” math teacher who has had most of the kinds from church in her math class at school.  Come to see how Mrs. Marlin shares the Christmas story as only a math teacher could.  Christmas by the numbers never sounded so good!

There will be a special offering at the conclusion of the morning and evening Christmas Program on December 11th to help provide a bonus for our school faculty and staff.

Please be prepared to help us in this area.  The faculty and staff at Mountain View work very hard to prepare your children academically and spiritually.  Please let them know how much they are appreciated.

MVCS CHOIR CONCERT:  WEDNESDAY, DEC. 13TH AT 2:30 P.M. – The program is entitled “What a Beautiful Name It Is.” This will be a combined chapel service.  Everyone is invited to attend and enjoy this wonderful, anointed choir.
