MVS Parents and Students,
Westwind School Division No. 74 now offers free eBooks and audiobooks to our students! Our digital library connects students with a collection of reading materials to supplement their studies, as well as offering the kind of titles they would find in our school library for pleasure reading.
Our digital collection is available 24/7 and all you need to get started is an internet connection and your Student Email Address and Password. For example: if I were Luke Skywalker, my email would be something like firstname.lastname@example.org and my password would be 4 or 6 digits.
Digital books are compatible with smart phones, tablets, eReaders and computers. Titles can be read right in the internet browser http://apssdc.lib.overdrive.com
or downloaded using the free OverDrive app. At the end of the lending period (14 days) titles automatically expire so there are never any late fees.
We are exited about this addition to our library and encourage you and your student to Check It Out! If you need help, come on in to the library and I will help you get started.
Mrs. L. Walburger,
Please go to our document Page to see the Cougars Basketball Camp information. or Your child can pick up a form at the office.
Competitive Sports Programs
Mountain View School has a long history of competing in cross country, volleyball, basketball, archery, badminton and track and field. Cross country, archery, badminton and track and field are individual sports with student placement on teams dependent largely on their age. When limited spaces are available, students will try out for the team placements. For the team sports of volleyball and basketball, the school will support a Junior Varsity (grade 7/8 and, when additional participants are needed, grade 6) and a varsity (grade 7/8/9) team for each sport. When necessary, placement on these teams will be determined through try outs. There may be occasions when only one team can be supported due to the limited number of students.
All extracurricular sports are run on volunteer hours. Great sacrifices of time are made by staff and parents to run the sports program and provide students with opportunities to compete. Parent support is essential to our sports programs and my include coaching, refereeing, transportation, organizing tournaments, fundraising etc. We also appreciate parents' support of the students as they compete in their respective sports. During try outs and team placements, we realize all parents want their child to have the best opportunity to compete and develop their talent. The administration and athletic director in consultation with coaches, ensure all students have opportunity to show case their skills and talent and then receive a fair team placement. We ask that parents keep this in mind as they approach each sport season and do their best to support the school in their decisions.
Coaches are expected to treat students with dignity and respect while fostering an environment conducive to maximizing all players potential. We recognize in the competitive sports arena, students have varying talents and abilities. All team members will participate in accordance with established divisional rules. Coaches will use their discretion to play team members in positions that will contribute both to the competitiveness of the team and also to building the potential of the player. Concerns regarding coaching should first be taken to the designated staff supervisor of the team.
Please note: The Student Agendas are only for Gr. 1,2,3,4
