Principal Information

One of the great things about Farmington View is the immense support/volunteering our classroom teachers and our school receives from our parents and community. A few weeks ago, your child took home a parent volunteer packet for you to complete and return to school. As of Friday, only 91 families had returned the packet as compared to 143 families last year. Please take a few minutes to complete the packet and return it to school. This information is used by our Boosters to get you involved with our wonderful community.

Farmington View Tidbits

  • Please remember that the marked parking spot near the service road is reserved for the family who purchased it at our auction.
  • Today is our first lock-in drill. In a lock-in drill, all exterior and interior doors are locked and students are kept quiet. A lock-in occurs when the threat is inside the building.
  • Hope to see you tonight at my SBAC Informational Meeting
  • This year, most of our teachers are using a writing curriculum/strategy developed by Lucy Calkins. Her work is based on Common Core standards and has had proven success. While in classrooms, I'm already seeing more sophisticated writing taking place.
  • I want to take a moment to thank all of you who are volunteering at FV or taking on leadership responsibilities with our Boosters and FVPAE. You make a difference!
  • Why mindset matters. Please watch the video below.
  • ParentVUE is a great way to check in on how your student is doing in class. Click on the link below and give it a try.
  • HSD is currently going through an accreditation process. Please take the time to complete the survey below. Each school must have 20% of their families complete the survey and we are not at 20%. It's a great opportunity to have your voice heard.
