Mt. Vista Community: My name is Crystle Gallegos and I’m honored to be the new assistant principal at Mt. Vista PreK – 8 School. Our superintendent, Mr. Dennis Blauser, and I are excited to work together as we focus on innovative curriculum, quality instruction, and the daily operations of our school. I look forward to working primarily with our Pre-K through sixth grades while Mr. Blauser will primarily oversee seventh and eighth grades.
  I strongly believe that providing our children with a quality education is the greatest investment we can make in both our community and in our collective future. As a school leader, it is my responsibility to ensure that all students at Mt. Vista Pre-K-8 School are safe, respected, academically challenged, and provided opportunities to discover their individual strengths and interests.

  This school year, we are proud to introduce Tech Academy, our newest class offering for all students in Kindergarten through eighth grade. I encourage our families to ask students, “What did you do in Tech Academy, today?” Their responses might include, “I learned how to use the 3D printer and look what I created?”, “I wore the Virtual Reality glasses, let me tell you about what I saw!”, “I started to write programming code and I drew my ideas on the giant whiteboard with my classmates!” The Tech Academy will be instructed by our very own Mrs. Shannon Soule and we cannot wait to see our students grow as readers, writers and strengthen their math skills as they use their hands and minds to experience the most innovative technology programs available.
  We are also excited to continue the implementation of our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Program. Last school year, we introduced the PBIS Program and focused primarily on Tier 1, positive reinforcement strategies to benefit our school as a whole. This school year we will continue to utilize Tier 1 strategies as we introduce Tier II, with the goal of decreasing specific behavior disruptions and increasing academic achievement and social awareness. Our successes with the PBIS Program belong to our committed staff, students and PBIS Team. I look forward to working with our school community as we promote respectful, responsible and honest behaviors campus-wide.

  Communication with families, the community, our staff, and students is of great importance to me. I can be reached via email at cgallegos@osd2.org and in the Mt. VIsta Office at 520-896-3003.
  I look forward to meeting you soon and an exceptional school year!
