Hello Mountain View Families and welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!! 

As the Booster Club Chairperson, I would personally like to invite you to be a member.  As a working parent, I know how difficult it can be to find the time to volunteer.   Booster Club offers the opportunity to be involved with the school in many different ways that may fit into a variety of schedules.  This gives us a unique chance to make a difference in our school as well as in our own children’s futures.

The Booster Club began as a PTO when MVCKS was first established, and has now grown into a partnership with the administration to find creative ways to support our students and teachers.   Here is our statement of purpose:

“MVCKS Booster Club exists to support the school’s mission through promoting a closer union between educators, parents, and the general public, so as to ensure the best conditions of social, mental, and physical education for each student.”

Membership in Booster Club may consist of parents, guardians, grandparents, administration, staff, Governing Board members, and students.  Here are a few of the activities and events that our Booster Club has been privileged to help out with, sponsor, and/or organize:

Fundraising events, field trips, computer and technology equipment, educational classroom tools, Wolf of the Month program, leadership skills development programs for middle schoolers, Holiday Gift Shop, Rewards and Recognition programs for students and teachers, Nerf Night, Spirit Run and teacher appreciation week.  Not only do we have “active” fundraising events (such as our Big Kahuna fundraiser in September), but we also have easy, “passive” fundraising ways that don’t cost parents anything directly.  Here are a few ways any parents, family members or friends of MVCKS can help:

-Install the Box Tops for Education app on your device and scan your receipt through the app.  Box Tops earnings are identified and automatically credited to our school this way (Note:  when installing the app, search for our school by entering the zip code 81212 or searching for “Mount View Core Knowledge School”).  Any electronic receipt for pickup orders (Walmart) can be emailed to receipts@boxtops4education.com .  OR clip and collect the Box Tops and send them in with your student(s). Eventually the Box Tops program will become digital only.

- Register your City Market Card.  Go to www.citymarketcommunityrewards.com.  Once enrolled, and you have designated Mountain View Core Knowledge School as your organization name , each time you use your card, City Market will donate funds to our school.

-Use Smile.Amazon.com when ordering from Amazon.  Select Mountain View Core Knowledge School as your current charity and a portion of your spending will go to our school.

-Classic Furniture on Main St in Canon City has a “Give Back” program.  The owners have generously agreed to give 10% of your REGULAR priced purchase to the Fremont County school of your choice.  Those dollars can be donated to MVCKS!

-Your purchase at American Furniture Warehouse can support our School!  Use promo code “SCHOOL” with our school name or school ID: MVCK56, AFW will donate 2% of all purchases back to our school.  To learn more about AFW’s School Community program, go to www.afw.com/school-program.

Our Booster Club members work hard, but we also have fun and reap the rewards of being engaged in student life!  Would you like to be a part of an organization that makes a huge difference in our fine school?  We would love for you to join us!  Monthly meetings are scheduled on the first Wednesday of each month at 5:30pm, usually in the MV Library or Board Room.  Communication will be emailed out to members the Monday prior to, with the Agenda for that month’s meeting. A reminder of the meeting will also be posted on the MVCKS Booster Facebook page.  If you are unable to attend meetings, but would like to be involved, please contact me.  There are many opportunities for volunteering that do not require a huge time commitment and are still extremely valuable to our school!  

Find us on Facebook “MVCKS Booster Club.”

Sincerely, 

Page Staffa, Booster Club Chair             pagestaffa@gmail.com
