MVSD Celebrates its Dedicated Volunteers
     The Mountain View School District honored several dedicated volunteers for their exceptional service to their schools and District at the annual Volunteer Recognition Celebration.
     Held at the El Monte Community Center, the spring-themed celebration included beautiful decorations created by the school and district community liaisons, refreshments and entertainment by Twin Lakes School’s Flamenco Dancers and Voorhis School’s Irish Dancers.
     Certificates of appreciation were presented to volunteers from each school site and the Head Start State Preschool program. Board of Education members, Adam Carranza, Jacqueline Saldaña and Christian Diaz joined District Superintendent, Lillian Maldonado French to thank and congratulate the volunteers for their extraordinary service.
“Thank you for all you do for our students,” said Maldonado French. “The work you do is immense and invaluable and because of your involvement our students succeed, and for that I am extremely grateful.”
     MVSD’s volunteers provide tremendous support to the schools through assistance in classrooms, playground supervision, field trip supervision, office assistance, decorating for special events, fund raising, and participation on district and school site committees. For the past three years they have provided valuable input for the development of the District’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). Additionally, many of them have participated in trainings, enabling them to lead workshops and parent engagement activities.
Administrators from each of the school sites and the Head Start program acknowledged their volunteers in video tributes, sharing words of appreciation and gratitude for their service.
     “Thank you for your dedication and willingness to give of your time, talent and care,” said Sylvia Rivera, Parkview School principal. “Our volunteers are ordinary people with extraordinary hearts.”
Alma Gonzales, Director of Preschool Programs appreciates the many volunteers and all they do for the preschool programs, staff and students.
     “We appreciate your willingness to volunteer and work with us as we support our students. Volunteers are love in motion and your efforts positively impact our schools and programs.”
     Congratulating the volunteers on their achievements, Board of Education President, Adam Carranza thanked them for their service.
    “As volunteers you are an integral part of the Mountain View team and your time and services contribute greatly to the success of our schools and district,” said Carranza. “Your work and feedback is incredibly important and on behalf of the Board of Education thank you for what you do.”
