Celebrating the end of 2019 at Mountview
WRAPPING UP THE YEAR (AND DECADE!)
This is the month when our singers and musicians shared talents with their parents and other family members. A lot of time in school and outside of school is spent honing the skills necessary to perform at a high level. I hope everyone had the opportunity to see the fruits of their labor at our concerts in early-December and I’m very certain that everyone was entertained. I would like to express my gratitude to Rich Day, Elizabeth Puleo, and Josh Sabourin for their work with students. I think it is evident that our kids are fortunate to have such a talented, caring, and fun music staff!
The Mountview Student Council, once again, sponsored the Senior Breakfast that took place for our senior citizens on Thursday morning, December 12th. This is a wonderful occasion with a breakfast prepared by our cafeteria staff, music provided by our middle school string orchestra, and short performances by our eighth grade chorus and wind ensemble. Great job everyone!
I am pleased to announce the Project 351 nominee for Holden and Mountview: Elizabeth Cain. Elizabeth will represent Mountview, and the town of Holden, as one of the nominees representing the 351 towns and cities of Massachusetts. She will attend a kick-off event in Boston on January 20 and then conduct a clothing drive, among other responsibilities, as our representative this spring. Congratulations to Elizabeth!
Lastly, from our faculty to all of our Mountview families, we wish everyone a most joyous and healthy holiday season.

MODEL UN CONFERENCE DUO BRINGS HOME BIG AWARD
The conference chairs had the following to say about Lilly and Luchik's performance at the conference: "Overall amazing delegates and amazing partners. They both served as amazing speakers, questioners, and leaders in the room. They were leaders in the room during unmoderated caucuses and engaged debaters during moderated caucuses. Lastly, they stood among many of the other delegates for their consideration of others. They encouraged and supported each other and the delegates around them and were a model of what good delegates and good people can be." Congratulations!
