Welcome to March! Spring break is coming at the end of this month, I hope you will be able to take a break and relax. On Feb. 16th, the Chinese community presented an amazing Lunar New Year Celebration at Mission Valley in MUR. Students and staff enjoyed Lion Dance, Martial Arts, Chinese Ethnic Dance, fashion show and a special celebration song and dance featuring our own Mission Valley students. The whole performance was also hosted by Mission Valley students.
The much awaited 2018 Jog-a-thon is coming on this Thursday, March 8th! In addition to a fun run around the track, this is our major fundraiser to support MVSA programs. Our goal this year is to raise $100 per student, which is tax deductible. The funds pay for essential programs not supported by the school district, such as computer lab and school assemblies.
This year, we are also adding Sponsor Mrs. Mapelli. Mrs. Mapelli is targeting to raise $21,000 to help purchase new computers for the computer lab. In return, she is hosting a costume challenge. Your donation is greatly appreciated! Please donate via Konstella (https://goo.gl/2evB55) or write a check payable to MVSA indicating your child name and class number by March 7.
