Our Annual Fundraiser will be next Thursday, 9/22. We will be doing the Mustang Stampede/Fun Run again this year, but with a few new things to tie it in. We will be sending out envelopes* next week, any student that brings back the envelope with any monetary donation inside will receive a prize. The PTA will have a table set up before and after school, outside, to collect the donations. These prizes are for *IN PERSON DONATIONS ONLY!

Each student that donates $40 dollars will earn an extra popsicle recess and each student that donates $80 will earn a Glow in the Dark Party AND the extra popsicle recess. These can be a combined effort of the in person donations and online donations, so be sure to ask family, friends and neighbors for help! If we raise $22,000 students will be able to help duct tape Mr. Lovell to the wall! We really hope we can meet this goal to be able to provide some extra fun next year.

As a reminder, this fundraiser goes straight back to helping out the school, through the PTA, in a variety of programs such as, Battle of the Books, Reflections, Student Birthdays, 6th Grade Party, Field Day, Teacher Appreciation week, Field Trips, Chinese New Year, Book Fairs, Grandparent’s Day, Class t-shirts, supplies for Rotations, DARE, Ribbon Weeks, and more! We cannot keep providing and helping with these awesome programs without YOUR HELP! Send cash or check (made out to Monte Vista Elementary PTA) in the envelopes next week for a prize and/or donate online:

PLEASE HAVE YOUR STUDENT WEAR RUNNING SHOES AND BRING A WATER BOTTLE ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22ND. The PTA has provided each student with a t-shirt that they have been/will be able to decorate during their art rotation, to wear during our run.

Dear Monte Vista Community,

I am honored to be your principal and pleased to welcome you back to the 2022-2023 school year! It is truly a privilege to be part of a community where every staff member strives to build positive relationships in order to support our student’s academic and social-emotional growth. Our goal at Monte Vista is to work together to provide our students with a rich learning environment in order to foster independent thinkers, and promote a culture of safety and respect. My hope is that all children will love and want to come to school everyday in a learning environment that is positive, safe, and caring.

We want to welcome several new staff members to our Monte Vista family this upcoming school year.

First, Mr. Lovell, our assistant principal, is excited to begin the school year and meet our students. He has already made a positive impact on our staff - Welcome Mr. Lovell.

Mrs. Stanworth, our new 3rd grade teacher, is excited to get started and looking forward to meeting her new students. 

Mrs. Holsey, our new 2nd grade teacher was a reading assistant last year and cares for her students. After watching her work with students we knew we wanted her as a teacher.

Student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our community and this is extremely important now more than ever. It truly does take a village and at Monte Vista we value teamwork and collaboration. Education is a joint venture and our teachers greatly appreciate the support you provide for your children at home and at school to help them meet their learning goals.

Please consider joining PTA who supports such events as Battle of the Books, Field Day, Field Trips, DARE, Red Ribbon Week, Reflections and the list goes on. There is a link on our website to the PTA Membership Toolbox where you can sign up today! 

On behalf of the staff of Monte Vista Elementary School, I want to welcome you and thank you for being part of our Mustang community where we build on the past in order to meet the challenges of the future. 

All the best - Welcome back.

Nan Ririe, Principal
