Principal's Message


Dear Island View Families:

I hope you enjoyed a relaxing holiday season and break with family and friends. While I enjoyed some quality time with my own family, I was very happy to have your students return to school on June 3. The building was just too quiet without themJ!

As you know, the Island View staff is committed to helping students grow in core curricular areas like reading, writing, science, and math. January 29 marks the end of the first semester, and teachers will be busy assessing student growth. We will mail report cards home on February 4, as we look forward to parent conferences the second week of February.

However, at no time do we lose sight of the whole child. This month, for instance, we begin a new partnership with art specialist, Aimee Rudge. Ms. Rudge will work with all Island View students on three different art projects during the second half of the year. The first creative and fun project will be paper sculptures. Then, later in January, we once again collaborate with the Anacortes Community Theater on a musical extravaganza. I am very proud our students get to experience the joy of artistic expression.  

On a final note, if you have not yet seen our new electronic reader board, check it out! I am enjoying exploring the different ways the sign can help promote the cultural mission of Island View. We purchased this reader board using a generous donation to the school.

As always, please feel free to contact me with your questions, concerns, and suggestions—360-503-1490 or  It is great to be a proud, soarin’ Island View eagle!

Brian Hanrahan, Principal
