Principal's Message

  • What an honor it is to continue serving the Mountain View community.  In Hawkland we strive to RISE each and every day by showing RESPECT to students, staff, families, and the community, demonstrating INTEGRITY (doing the right thing even when no one is watching), being SAFE with our words and actions in our school and community, and giving our best EFFORT academically, behaviorally, and socially.  I continue to believe that it is my responsibility to provide high quality leadership that focuses on student well-being (ensuring the academic, social/emotional, and physical safety of each student), staff support (empowering our amazing staff to connect with each child in meeting their academic and social-emotional needs), parent connections (listening to and communicating with parents to ensure a collaborative focus on meeting each child’s needs), and community engagement (being an active member of the Mountain View community).

    Because of this, two-way communication is important to me and I value the connections we will have during the 23-24 school year.  If I can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to reach out.  The quickest way to connect with me is via email. You can email me at You can also call me at 602-347-4105 and I will do my best to return your call within 24 hours of receiving it.  If you need to meet with me in person, know that I will do my best to meet with you as soon as possible. Balancing student, staff, parent and community needs will, at times, make it necessary to set an appointment for an in person conversation.

    Thank you for trusting us with your most valuable possession. Please know that I do not take this responsibility lightly and look forward to demonstrating this through my beliefs, words, and actions!

    Proud to be a HAWK,

    Philip Liles
