Hufflepuff wins the Annual Harry Potter Penny War

Posted in News & Announcements

In a close race, Hufflepuff won the annual Harry Potter Penny War last week!  Congratulations to the classes of Mrs. Newton, Mrs. Jensen, Mrs. Nichols, Mrs. Hatton, and Mrs. Wirth! They enjoyed a celebration on May 6 that included Harry Potter themed snacks, a raffle, a dress up/photo booth, and a potions class!  Slytherin, Gryffindor, and Ravenclaw also attended an assembly where they were able to participate in a raffle.

All four houses did a fantastic job bringing in donations, which all went to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Students and teachers had a fun time all week - between the school being decorated as Hogwarts and students "sabotaging" other houses, it sure was a week to remember!    The real winner was L&LS, who earned just over $4,000 for cancer research.  11193382_826917137401314_4013645086700801240_n.jpg

On May 5,  the District Board and Administration honored all the valuable employees who retired or will retire during the 2014/15 school year. We celebrated three great ladies - Connie Meadows, who has served as head secretary at Alta View for a number of years;  Nancy Newton, who has most recently been working as a third grade English teacher in the dual immersion program; and Margaret Gant, who has most recently served as a fourth grade English teacher in the dual immersion program.  We'd like to thank these ladies for their hard work and dedication to our school community and wish them the best of luck in their next endeavor!11066079_828588890567472_2768643665720270560_n.jpg

Harry Potter Penny War is Week of April 27

Posted in News & Announcements

Student Council kicked off it's annual Harry Potter themed fundraiser on Friday, April 24 with a sorting video letting all students and teachers know what house they'd been sorted into this year!

The school has been transformed into Hogwarts, and beginning Monday donations will be collected during all lunch hours for the week. Our goal this year is to raise $4500, and all proceeds benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

This year we're also participating in the 50-state-challenge, meaning we're trying to get a donation from each of the 50 states. If you're so inclined, please share the following link to have your friends/family from afar help us reach our goal:


You can also donate to your child's specific house on that same page. All online donations will be counted as positive points towards your child's house! Good luck Alta View, and may the best house win! Let the Penny War begin!
