ATTENTION ALL STUDENTS AND FAMILIES!
Do you like reading? Do you like pizza? Do you like presents? Why not combine all three?
Give the gift of reading this year with book donations and you could earn a pizza party for your Major Time class!
To address our SIP goal to utilize Major Time to build positive relationships, we encourage you to inspire your students to celebrate their love of reading this month and participate in the GIVE THE GIFT OF READING Book Drive sponsored by the Major PRIDE Committee and student leaders in EHS and SGA. The Major Time class with the most books from each grade level will be rewarded with a pizza party!
Please bring in a NEW or GENTLY USED elementary reading level book to donate. Our student leaders are picking up books from the Major Time classes or you can submit your donations to C206 or C102. All books will be donated to students at Woodley Hills and Riverside elementary schools.
Show your Major PRIDE and donate to the Major Buck Depot!
Last year Mount Vernon High School began an incentive program called Major Bucks, where students are given reward tickets to acknowledge positive behavior and school pride. We are now in the process of expanding our Major Buck Depot (school store) where students use their Major Bucks to purchase Major Gear (shirts, sandals, and sweatshirts), snacks and school supplies.
As the school year winds down, many students are gearing up to spend their Major Bucks that they have saved all year long. Much of our inventory is depleted at this point in the year and we need your support to keep our school store stocked with items for students to purchase and to reach our goal of building a better tomorrow for Mount Vernon High School.
You can help by donating items or becoming a patron sponsor. Any donation you can make, whether it be gift cards, school supplies, snacks, candy, or any financial contribution, no matter how small, could make a difference in the future of our community and in the lives of our students.
Please bring any donated items or monetary contributions (checks made out to MVHS) to the main office or contact the Major PRIDE Committee Chair, Melinda Bloomquist, for more information on how you can help. We hope that you will consider contributing to our school store and thank you in advance for supporting Major PRIDE.
