Dear Mar Vista Families,
Welcome back! The summer flew by and we’re already returning for the 2017-18 school year!
The Mar Vista Parent & School Club (MVPS) is a way you can assist in enriching your student’s experience. And, as an Mar Vista parent, you are a MVP!! All activities & financial investments are driven by our mission statement:
“To work together as a community to support quality programs which foster creativity, growth and academic success for all Mar Vista students.”
This non-profit raises funds to promote the education and welfare of our students. We would like to invite you to get involved and take an active role in your child’s education and community at Mar Vista. With our motto of “many hands makes light work” we’ll make sure a little effort will create a great outcome for all students at Mar Vista.
A goal has been set to raise $100,000 this year which roughly equates to $200 per student. We’re asking families to help raise this either by fundraising or donating, whichever works best for your family. We many opportunities to volunteer or drive sales anywhere from the Drive 4 Schools raffle, spring auction, or our read-a-thon also in the spring.
There are also other ways to support our school using community programs which pay back to Mar Vista. Many of these are likely vendors you are already using! You can see these options at: http://aptosmvps.org/fundraisers/
On August 26th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm we will have our annual back to school potluck BBQ on the playground. Come join us for hamburgers and hotdogs, courtesy of Mar Vista Parents Club. All we ask is to bring your family and a dish to share, and come join in this wonderful community for some fun times.
We look forward to a fun and successful year,
Mar Vista Parents Club
