Mrs. Allbeck enrolled in the Laura Bush Foundation program to receive money for their school library and was notified that Mt. View was selected as a recipient of a $5000.00 grant. The money is to be used to purchase books and other reading materials to update and diversify their library. Mt View has an excellent library that can now be made a little better thanks to the Laura Bush Foundation.

Seventeen 5th and 6th grade students earned a field trip to UCLA to visit the school of Architecture and Urban Design. They were attending the midterm presentations given by the Architecture students. The Mt. View students were amazed by what they saw and many are starting to plan out their own University programs. Marlene Gomez wanted to know how long it took the Architecture students to make a complete model and how were they able to include so much detail. Krysten Burton, daughter of Mrs. Allbeck, showed the students how the 3D printer worked on a project that she is currently working on. All of the students who went were impressed by the overall experience of visiting UCLA and were starting to see themselves as college bound!
