Hello, this is Dr. Christensen notifying parents that there are already road closures reported in our area at low-water crossings. There will certainly be roads that our buses will not be able to travel as they take kids home this afternoon after school dismisses at the normal time. If you live on the other side of a low-water crossing, you will need to plan on the bus not being able to drop your child off at home. Please make arrangements to pick up your child from school-- even if you have to pick them up early before the water rises any more. Any students who rode a bus but were not able to be dropped off at home due to high water will be taken back to their school. We appreciate your willingness to work with us as we strive to ensure the safety of all of our students.
Here are just a few pictures from BTE's 1st Grade Reading Night. We want to thank the parents and students who attended!
Attendance Matters! We have been promoting good attendance at LHS with personal, class, and school-wide incentives. The senior class won the last attendance challenge and was rewarded with ice creams and sodas from Barn Hollow Veterinary Services. Thank you Dr. Orchard and Mrs. Terri!
Throughout March, we have been recognizing our Board of Education members. Mr. Keith Tharp has served the Mountain View-Birch Tree R-III School District as a Board of Education member for 20 years. Earlier this year he informed the board that this would be his last term. He offered advice during the last board meeting, encouraging all board members and administrators to always keep the needs of the students first. Keith will tell you that his 5 granddaughters and 1 grandson are some of the reasons he continued serving as a board member for 20 years. Thank you, Keith, for 20 years of service at MVBT! (We are pretty sure that Keith is the longest serving board member in MVBT's history.)
Thank you, Mrs. Denton!
Thank you, Mr. Roberts!
Thank you, Mrs. Mantel!
Thank you, Dr. Orchard!
Congratulations to these students on being selected as Student of the Month for February at LMS!

March is Board of Education Appreciation Month. The board of education is a volunteer representative body elected by the registered voters of the local public school district. The board governs the school district and serves as a leader and champion for public education in the community. We want to start by showing our appreciation to board members past and present. You will see a list of several board members since 1968! Help us show our appreciation to each past and present board member and their family. We will be highlighting current board members throughout the month.
Help support LHS Tennis this year. The deadline to order is Friday, March 10, 2023. Orders will be delivered to LHS. Anyone can purchase clothing items. 20% of the clothing sales will be returned to the tennis team. We are also looking for several business sponsors who might want to get involved. Contact Coach Anna Luehrs at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or questions. https://eagletennis23.itemorder.com/shop/category/100428/
Pictures are some past student of the month winners at LMS that are holding their shirts designed by Lois Wood! Thank you for your continued support of our students, Lois!
LMS 7th grade students were honored to have a guest speaker, Mrs. Joyce Taber, mother of LMS teacher, Mrs. Ball, who attended Woodlawn HS in Birmingham, AL during a very different era in our country. She spoke about the severity of the segregation that existed in Birmingham during that time and incidents that went on in and around Woodlawn HS during this time in history.
It's almost time for BTE and MVE Preschool and Kindergarten screening!
LHS students have been competing in an attendance competition. Every three weeks, the grade level with the highest attendance percent is rewarded. The freshman class earned ice cream sandwiches today! A big thank you to Wal-Mart for sponsoring the incentive.
The Mountain View-Birch Tree FFA/Ag program was awarded the Simmons First Foundation "Make a Difference Grant" in the amount of $12,500! Simmons Bank First Foundation awards grants to fund projects for youth through a grant application process. MVBT will be matching the grant to purchase a tractor for the FFA/Agricultural program. Thank you, Simmons Bank. This grant will make a BIG difference for students in our program!
