Hi Parents! Over the past week, our school has had a BLAST participating in this year's main Foundation fundraiser, the Mountain View MINDSPARK Fun Run. We’ve asked our families to support Mountain View Elementary by getting pledges for the Fun Run as we raise funds for STEM and Technology Lab Instructors and Supplies, plus donations to Curriculum Enrichment. Our volunteers have been on campus daily, championing fitness and teaching daily character lessons. 

This year’s character theme is MINDSPARK MYSTERY LAB, combining S.T.E.A.M. skills with character-building. We hope your student has had fun learning the 21st-century character traits while teaming up with the MindSpark Kids! 

REMEMBER, YOU CAN VISIT FUNRUN.COM WITH YOUR STUDENT TO:

  • Watch the MINDSPARK MYSTERY LAB character videos.
  • Enter and ask for pledges from friends and family.
  • Create a Student Star video by uploading your student’s picture and share on Facebook for a fun, easy way to ask for a pledge.
Join us for the Fun Run THIS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20th.  Volunteers are needed at the water stations, please CLICK HERE to signup. 

FUN RUN TIMES: 
8:30 - 9:30am     4th & 5th
9:45 -10:45am    K & 1st
11:00 -12:00pm   2nd & 3rd

Thank you for your continued support of Mountain View Foundation!
