Pirate P.R.I.D.E.

As we close a door on the first semester of the 2020-2021 school year, Monte Vista School District would like to thank the community of Monte Vista for your support, patience and camaraderie. We could not have continued to service our students without you! Although this year has been challenging, there have been so many bright spots throughout our district.  In the past month, our preschoolers have continued to make great strides academically and socially, enjoying all that Marsh School has to offer!  Meanwhile, the kindergarteners and first graders in Monte Vista spread holiday cheer by creating art for the local care centers.  We are so proud of these young people for thinking of others during the holiday season!  Over at Bill Metz Elementary School the student council adopted multiple families to deliver presents for 18 children.  During normal years, the student council pays for this venture through fundraising, but due to COVID, they relied on donations from our community and school staff.  Your donations made an incredible difference for Monte Vista families, thank you!  Monte Vista Middle School is very proud of their students’ engagement in school and showing Pirate P.R.I.D.E. even through these unusual times.  Science fair is off to a strong start at both the middle school and high school.  These young scientists are ready for another amazing year!  Last week, Monte Vista High School’s Pirate Crew sponsored a hot cocoa social.  This was a great opportunity for students to enjoy the company of their peers and teachers.  During the hot cocoa social, students took the time to write kind messages to the high school staff for all of their hard work. This was very meaningful and appreciated!  Our DELTA Center wants to say how honored they are to teach students with such resiliency and adaptability.  The amount of knowledge acquired by these students demonstrated by their completed work during this difficult time is a true representation of the FIGHT our students and community have.  Thank you again for everyone’s support!  Take this break to rest, recharge, and find joy in those you care about this holiday season.  We are looking forward to seeing our students and staff again on Jan. 5, 2021!  Remember, we are stronger together!  #PirateStrong Devon Davey, Monte Vista
