About Our School
Mountain Elementary School District, located in the redwoods above Santa Cruz County's quaint Soquel Village, is a small, one-school district serving students from kindergarten through sixth grade. All students are provided with challenging collaborative academic opportunities that are enhanced by the integration of music, visual and performing arts, and physical education into the curriculum.
We are looking forward to the Halloween parade on Monday, October 31st beginning at 8:30am. A few items to consider as the special day approaches: J
a. We do not allow weapons, violent imagery or full masks of any kind. These can frighten our youngest learners and distract from the full enjoyment of the parade. Thank you for your help with this school policy.
b. Our Wellness policy limits sugary snacks. Please refrain from sending candy or high sugar treats to school that day. Thank you for staying with healthy treats during class celebrations.
We are scheduled for a Professional Development Day with the other small school districts (Happy Valley, Bonny Doon, and Pacific) on Tuesday, 11/1---so no school for students that day. We'll be working on infusing our science curriculum with environmental education and integrating the arts and P.E. standards in the language arts program. School will be back in session on Wednesday, November 3.
School will be dismissed at 12:35 on all 4 days that week to accommodate parent conferences. Teachers will be posting sign-ups later this month. This is an invaluable time to discuss your child's progress with our amazing teachers. Please note that Friday, November 11th is Veteran's Day.
My door is always open to you. If you have questions to discuss or ideas to share to enhance our programs and services, please feel free to come by.
