The Mount Vernon Community School PTA is dedicated to building a school community that supports students, parents and teachers so all children have access to a vibrant, enriching place to learn. This year, we are focusing our Giving Tuesday efforts on raising funds for Blessings in a Backpack, teacher grants, and other important causes to help all students at MVCS reach their full potential.
All donations will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $5,000 by our generous neighbor Jen Walker! This means your donation will go twice as far in helping our community.
Last week, many of us paused in gratitude for our blessings. Please keep the spirit of gratitude and giving alive this Giving Tuesday by making a generous donation to PTA so we can continue to support programs like:
Blessings in a Backpack – This program provides nutritious, kid-friendly snacks and meals for MVCS children and their families. Each Friday, MVCS staff discreetly distribute these bags to students in need.
Teacher Grants – These grants help teachers buy classroom supplies so they aren’t paying out of pocket for educational items for our kids. These grants are especially helpful for new teachers as they build their classrooms.
Field Trips – Through the PTAs fundraising, every child at MVCS has the opportunity to attend field trips and learn outside the classroom.
Thank you for giving what you can and asking your friends and family to do the same. The generosity and compassion of our Del Ray community are part of what makes MVCS a wonderful school for all.
