Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Mount Vernon High School!
Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Mount Vernon High School with the official Major Maniacs Hype Squad T-shirt!. Show your Major PRIDE and support your SGA with a purchase or donation. All proceeds go directly to the Major PRIDE program for the Major Buck Depot.
Four years ago, the SGA and Student Leadership developed a school-wide program to encourage positive behavior and increase school spirit: Major PRIDE. Our Core Values -- Preparation, Respect, Integrity, Dedication, Excellence -- are what unites us as a school family and makes MVHS such an outstanding school to learn and work.
Our program has grown and we now have a reward system to recognize students for positive behavior and academic growth with Major Bucks. Students can then spend their Major Bucks, just like cash, in our Major Buck Depot (school store). We need more items in the store for students to purchase so that they stay motivated to show their Major PRIDE. Please support our school and this program with a t-shirt purchase or donation.
Orders can be submitted on www.booster.com/majormaniacs through Monday, September 29th. Shirts will be available for pick up during Homecoming Week (October 14th-17th) in the Major Buck Depot during all lunches.
Thank you! Go Majors!
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.
