MVSD Gives Back To Community


MVSD Gives Back To Community

One lesson that is taught at Mountain View is the importance of community service and helping others.

Student Government Association organized a canned food drive in November collecting around 1000 cans for Feed a Friend. In December, Future Business Leaders of America read Christmas stories to the Kindergarten. They also conducted an Easter Egg Hunt for the Kindergarten in April and hosted a question and answer to help prepare the sixth grade for their transition to the high school in May.

The Junior Honor Society has helped set up and assist with the Elementary Craft Fair and also sorted and packed items for the Food Bank in Montrose. The students assisted the Life Skills class with their shopping for their Thanksgiving meal and read books and led activities in the Elementary for “Read Across America” program. In December, the Honors Society collected items for “Operation Christmas Child” (filled boxes to be distributed to war ravaged or disaster struck areas) and visited and sang carols for the residents at the Veteran’s Center.

In the spring, Student Government Association entered four teams in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake. These teams consisted of students and teachers and raised over $400 in two hours of bowling.

In early May, eleven seventh grade students participated in a Math-A-Thon to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The students had 100 math problems to complete and got pledges based on how many they did. These ten students raised $744 for St. Jude.

Future Business Leaders of America organized Penny Wars in May. Students in every grade collected in pennies, dimes, nickels, quarters and dollars which were dropped into jars. Pennies added to their totals and everything else subtracted. The students enjoyed competing grade by grade for a great cause. After two weeks of collection, Mountain View Jr/Sr High School raised $500.00 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Currently, the Junior Honor Society is in the process of painting the Mt. View baseball dugout with a Mt. View Eagle design.

In addition to these wonderful projects, Mountain View FBLA also made monetary donations to the March of Dimes, Habitat for Humanity and the PA FBLA William Seldon Scholarship Fund earlier in the year. As individuals, the Future Business Leaders of America members have accumulated over 1300 hours of community service in various areas such as VFW, fire and ambulance companies, soup kitchens, churches and many other organizations.

Community service is one of the proud lessons the students at Mountain View receive and this is a lesson that will extend into their adult lives.
