Traffic Reminders for Monte Vista

Please talk with your family about the rules of the road and safe driving around the MV campus.      Thanks and be safe out there Mustangs!  

 

Students- Take your time leaving class and the parking lots.  Pausing for ten minutes may save your life and your bumper. Uturns across the Stone Valley double yellow are illegal and unsafe.

 

Parents- Save time and traffic by picking your student up at 3:45pm after the student has studied for 30 minutes in the library or WSC. 

 

Parents- Drop off/pick up in front of gym to take a legal left turn on Stone Valley at the light.    There is no legal left turn out of the horseshoe during pick up and drop off hours.

 

Pedestrians- Stay in the car until safe to exit to the sidewalk.  There is no drop off in red zone or mid street for your safety.    

 

YEARBOOK: Get your yearbook by January on the WebStore! We cannot guarantee that there will be books for sale later in the year. Remember if you have already purchased either a senior gold card or a yearbook/activity seal combo do NOT purchase a yearbook separately.  -Jennie Drummond, Yearbook Advisor www.MonteVistaArtRoom.weebly.com

A simple idea became a big blessing to staff and students at Monte Vista High School this month.  We have coat drives, toy drives, book drives often, especially at this time of year, but the Bags for Homeless project seemed to touch extra hearts the past few weeks.  Donations far exceeded requests and instead of carrying 100 filled bags to the SF Homeless, Danville Teens carried 250 and more!  

 

This was not a hands off event.  MV Teens loaded a BART car exiting into the tenderloin and personally met with homeless on the streets of San Francisco.  The encounters blessed both the teen and the adult and is captured by the news video below.  What a great reminder of giving is better than receiving!

CLASS OF 2021 PACKAGES FOR HOMELESS DRIVE:  Did you know that SOCKS are among the most needed items at homeless shelters, yet amongst the least-often donated?  Because of the shortage, the nation’s homeless population is constantly at risk of serious foot disease and, during winter months, in severe danger posed by the cold.

 

Let’s help by collecting these items for the homeless.  We would like to make 75 packages and we are hoping you come through and help us meet and exceed our goal!  We will be collecting the following items until 12/4.   

75 pairs of socks

75 travel sized toothpaste

150+ pads

Toothbrushes

75+ nut free granola bars

Boxes of bandaids

75 bottles of water

75 chapstick

Blankets

Dry pet food

75 boxes of Kleenex or hand wipes

75 reusable bags to hold items such as Large zip lock or small drawstring.

 

Did your business have a convention and have extra simple drawstring bags left? We'd love those! Do you have access to bulk dental care, band aids, granola bars, etc? Or are you able to pick up a few while out shopping this week?  You will be turning these items into the health and world geo classes or the leadership room. There will be a box to put the items in.  Monte Vista has given us so much in the few short months that we have been here, so it is our time to Pay it Forward. 

 

Thank you for your support!   The Monte Vista Class of 2021
