     First Day of High School! September 4, 2018


    Our Eighth Grade Snow Daze Dance is tonight from 6:30 - 9:00 PM sponsored by the Highview Student Council.  The dance is for Highview eighth grade students only.

    Tickets were on sale from January 30th - February 2nd for $10.00 each or may be purchased from The Nest (our school store) using 15 Gotcha Tickets.  The ticket includes light snacks, dessert, and a commemorative photo. 

    Traditionally, students have worn semi-formal attire.  A skirt or dress for the girls and khaki or dress pants for boys.  We do expect attire that is appropriate and is not revealing.  It is not necessary for students to go with a "date."  In fact, we encourage all students to attend and are welcome to attend in groups.

    We are also looking for store-bought dessert donations.  Please contact Stacey Olinger at Stacey.Olinger@moundsviewschools.org if you are interested in donating.

    We are still in need of parent volunteers. We are looking for several parents to help set up, several parents to help chaperone the dance itself, and several parents to assist with cleanup.  If you are able to help, please contact Sam Carew at 651-621-6720 or sam.carew@moundsviewschools.org


    Registration is now open for winter activities:  Floor Hockey, Swimming and Dance Team 101.  Register online at https://www.moundsviewschools.org/youthprograms or get a paper form in the school office. 


    Join the Mounds View High School Softball coaches and players for a comprehensive Youth Softball Clinic for grades 3 through 8. The clinic will teach players the skills and drills that the high school coaches are looking for, and help prepare players for spring tryouts! 

    The clinic will be four Saturdays in January and February 2018. All players will work on offensive and defensive skills from 1-3 pm each Saturday. Pitchers and catchers will have a dedicated time from 3-4 pm (additional cost). Find details AND register online:www.moundsviewschools.org/mvsoftball. Other activities conflicting? Can you only attend some of the dates? Please contact Booster President, Alyson Whalen, atmvhsfastpitch@gmail.com to see what options may work for you to participate!


    Highview’s Hawk’s Nest is looking for donations.  Students can receive “Gotcha Tickets” from staff for a multitude of great reasons… Being a good friend, being on time, doing their best, working hard in class, etc.  Students can “spend” these tickets in the school store called, The Hawk’s Nest. 

    We are asking for help stocking The Hawk’s Nest with these items that  students have requested – Dum Dum suckers, Orbit Gum (14 piece packs), Rice Krispy Treats (singles), chips (individual servings), popsockets, fidget cubes, fun-size candy (no peanuts please), Chex Mix (individual servings). 

    Donated items can be brought to the school office.  We thank you, in advance, for helping us to promote positive behavior in our students at Highview.  Hawk Pride!
