Monte Vista History Trivia  The Class of 1969's Homecoming Float slogan was the school motto.  "With Freedom Comes Responsibility"     To the new Monte Vista school this meant no bells and no attendance.  What personal responsibility do you take on today that gives you freedom?    "Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility. For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry his own weight, this is a frightening prospect." --Eleanor Roosevelt 

 

Bach to School Choir Concerts:  Get your tickets for the concerts before they head to Carnegie Hall!   Oct 29 & 30, 7pm, Monte Vista Al Gentile Theatre www.mvchoirtix.com
