Mountain View School PTA is a child advocacy organization. Our local unit raises funds to help provide the necessary tools to ensure our students’ academic success. Our funding sponsors on-campus enrichment as well as off-campus field trips. We hold several family engagement activities throughout the year to give our students, families, and community a well-rounded and fun educational experience. Our mission is to make every child’s potential a reality, and with your support, we can! Become a member today to help support our efforts. We also have many volunteer opportunities for parents and caregivers so you can have a front row seat to your students’ education. Visit us at mvspta.com for volunteer opportunities, calendar of events, and our PTA spirit shop!
Our school community is excited to integrate community members into our schools and programs. Community members looking to get involved and make a difference in the lives of children and their families can volunteer in many ways for our school, offering valuable support to educators!

As an AdvancED STEAM school, Mountain View is interested in creating a database of community members who work in STEAM fields - Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics - who would be willing to share their experiences, expertise, and career advice with our PreK-8th grade students.
Mountain View's Signature Focus: S.T.E.A.M. Through Life focuses on the career pathways that are available to students through STEAM Career and Technical Education pathways. These include engineering, digital communications - including graphic design or computer animation - and business & marketing - including sales. We would love for our students to engage with members of the community who work in any of these fields.
What might a STEAM volunteer do? Some examples may be:
- Presenting to a class or grade level about your experiences in your career field
- Presenting to a class or grade level about career pathways and options in your field
- Assisting a class or grade level with carrying out a hands-on project related to your field
- Assisting a teacher to design a hands-on project or to evaluate student projects as an expert in the field
- Helping to arrange a field trip relating to your career field for a grade level or group of students
- Participating in one of Mountain View's STEAM events
- Or perhaps you have other great ideas as to how you can help our students explore your field - we would love to hear them!
If you are interested in being in our database, so that teachers can reach out to you, you can either print the volunteer flyer below return the completed form to the main office, or you can complete the online volunteer interest form.
We value our partnerships with the Dysart high school Career and Technical Education programs, West-MEC, the Arizona Science Center, the Arizona Technology Council Foundation, and AdvancED. We would love to add your expertise and experience to our resources so our students have the best educational experiences possible.
You can support Mountain View and receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit. Choose one of the four categories and a school to support, and 100% of your donation goes to the category and school of your choice. Arizona Law (ARS 43-1089.01) allows married couples filing jointly a tax credit of up to $400 and individual taxpayers a tax credit of up to $200 when they contribute to extra-curricular activities in public schools. This tax credit is available to all who reside in Arizona and have a tax liability at least equal to that of their donation. You do not have to be a parent of a child in our school to benefit from this law. Contributions are donated directly to the school. This means your donations are used directly to support student activities here at Mountain View.
