Dear Monte Vista Mountain Lions!
We have exciting news to share with you! Thanks to your support and that of our community we have managed to pay off our last remaining bill and are now cash flow positive. Our PTO Board has been successful thanks to all the amazing volunteers, generosity of local businesses and organizations and overall positive support from Monte Vista families, teachers and staff. Each and every penny fundraised made a difference such as BoxTops clipping and scanning, shopping at Fry’s and earning through the Community Rewards Program, family dinner nights, business sponsorships, gifts from local families, company matching programs, shopping on smile.amazon.com, and so on. The latest fundraising success was from the Pumpkin STEAM Fest.
We are excited to kick-off Apex coming to our school next week on Nov. 12th. The goal of Apex is to bring positive messaging to our students while also serving as our one and only major fundraiser for the year. We will be fundraising for teacher grants and to support school programs. Teachers typically receive grants at the start of the school year so they don’t have to use their own money to set up their classrooms. Unfortunately, teachers did not receive the grants so it is our goal to make Apex a success to give the teachers the grants they deserve. Funds raised will also support the family reading wall program, awarding students almost 600 books each month.
Thank you from your PTO Board
Jessica, Cayden, Hilary, Robin, Amanda, Sandra, and Usha
