Help build the Major Buck Depot and show your Major PRIDE!
At the beginning of this year Mount Vernon High School began a new incentive program called Major Bucks, where students are given tickets to acknowledge positive behavior and school pride in hopes of boosting the morale and attitude of the Mount Vernon High School community. We have expanded that initiative and have opened a school store!
Students can spend their Major Bucks on shirt, snacks and school supplies in the MAJOR BUCK DEPOT. The Major Buck Depot is located across from the cafeteria by the rock entrance and is open every Monday after school from 2:15-3:15.
We know that the MVHS parents, alumni and community members value school pride and student success as much as we do. If this project is a success, it could greatly impact their life, but we can’t do it alone. For that reason, we ask that you consider supporting our school store through the donation of items to supply it. If you have any leftover school supplies, gift cards, t-shirts, sweat pants, sweat shirts, or other MVHS gear, please consider donating it to the new Major Bucks store. Any donation you can make, no matter how big or small (whether it be two warm-ups or twenty t-shirts) could make a huge difference in the future of our school and our students' lives.
We hope that you will consider supporting our school store and our goal of building a better tomorrow for Mount Vernon High School. For more information, please contact Melinda Bloomquist firstname.lastname@example.org or Jennifer Curry email@example.com.
Student leaders play an important role in this school community. Beyond the role of holding key positions in SGA, students also participate in annual conferences, attend all SGA meetings and SGA related events, and keep up with schoolwork while promoting the SGA by serving as a spokesperson to school and community groups.
