Dear MVES Parents, 
PLEDGING IS OPEN for our one MV Foundation Fundraiser, the MindSpark Wild West Fun Run!  

Help us reach our fundraising goal of $30,000 to replace Classroom Laptops, iPads and Charging Carts! CLICK HERE to read more about this Technology Initiative and what it means for our teachers and students.  

Having technology such as laptops and iPads, is critical in the 21st century classroom. Having these resources helps engage students, individualize student needs, fosters creativity, and prepares students for the real world. 

Our students have limited access to these technologies on a daily basis. If we were to get new laptops and/or iPads, it would benefit our school and our students greatly. Our students would be able to develop greater mastery of standards when given access to these amazing resources.

-Leslie Allen, MVES 1st Grade Teacher

Kindergarten: Animals of Africa

Kindergarteners have been studying lines, patterns and drawing with shapes this year. To demonstrate their skills, they have created fantastic portraits of their favorite African animals in crayon and paint. These portraits have been collaged onto patterned backgrounds inspired by African Kente cloth.


First Grade: Under One Sky
First graders have been experimenting with water colors to show the wide variety of colors and effects we can see in the sky. These beautiful paintings have been laid over their own silhouetted drawings of well known sites all around the world.


Second Grade: Gond Art
Second graders studied the art form known as Gond Art from India. These traditional artworks combine plants and animals in imaginative ways and are highly decorated with patterns of dots and lines. Second graders created their own fanciful paintings of plants and animals native to India and decorated them using paint pens

-PTA Parent/Family Engagement Committee,



Parents and Families—this year’s one Foundation fundraiser is the Mountain View MindSpark Wild West Fun Run! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on November 11th. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps) at the Fun Run, which will happen on November 20thThis year our goal is to raise $30,000 to replace aging Classroom Laptops, iPads, and Charging Carts, and we need your help! We’ve asked the experts at Booster to power our fundraiser to make it easier, more profitable, and more fun. 

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK: WILD WEST! Booster’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they're teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to save Dr. Shock, our students will learn five character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.


Donations will go toward replacing Classroom Laptops, iPads, and Charging Carts (learn more about this initiative HERE) and the entire two-week experience. So please help our school by getting pledges from family and friends and entering them online at FUNRUN.COM. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on our students at the Mountain View MindSpark Wild West Fun Run.


Stay tuned for more details and Thanks so much for your support!
