Anti-Bullying Awareness Spirit Week: November 17-21!

Majors are taking a stand against bullying during this spirit week as part of our PBA (Positive Behavior Approaches) and Jostens' Renaissance school initiatives.

We encourage you to dress up for the spirit days (see below) and encourage student action throughout the school year toward creating a supportive school culture that promotes unity.

Monday: Rainbow Day
We are all beautiful and different like the colors of the rainbow. Wear your favorite color or all of them as a reminder of each individual's unique gifts and talents.

Mix it up Monday
Sit with new people during lunch, make a new friend and enjoy music in the cafeteria.

Tuesday: Inside Out Day Wear your clothes inside out today to show that bullying leaves scars on the inside that can't be seen.

Anti-Bullying Pledges
Students can sign up during all lunches to receive a FREE wristband and PAUSE BEFORE YOU POST card.

Wednesday: Mixed up Shoe Day
Walk a mile in someone else's shoes today by wearing two different shoes and wear ORANGE.

HEY day Wednesday
Say "HEY" to everyone you see!

Thursday: Cyber Blue Day
Blue is the color to represent awareness.

Anti-Bullying Pledges

Show your Major PRIDE and donate to the Major Buck Depot!

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.

Sincerely,

The Major P.R.I.D.E. Committee
PRIDE • RESPECT • INTEGRITY • DEDICATION • EXCELLENCE
