We are looking for artists to commit to a 90-minute block of time to share their work and to allow students to explore and experience a bit of the medium.This year we will also be featuring a student and family marketplace from 12-1:30pm for any student or family artists who wish to sell their creations.

Intent to Return

Dear Wonderful Families,

We are so excited that you are here and we look forward to watching your children grow for years to come. You do not need to reapply until it is time to think about high school! Your child's automatic enrollment continues all the way through 8th grade at MCCV. Each year we will ask you to complete an intent to return form to help us plan ahead.

While we all wish to see students stay from TK-8th grade, learning and growing as a community, we understand that circumstances, schedules and optimizing learning sometimes means shifts for students and families. Tours have started and there is a lot of interest at all grade levels. In order to plan staffing, configurations and student programs for next year we need the most accurate and up to date enrollment figures as possible. Please take a moment to fill out this survey for each child you have enrolled at MCCV: click here for the survey.

Reach out to me anytime if you have questions, ideas or concerns. Hope to see some of you at the family dance tonight!
Thank you for helping us shape next year!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, we are halfway through women's history month. There are many events around the county celebrating historical women and the amazing heritage they bring to our cultures. If you can't make the events this year, plan to look for these events next year, as some of them are annual events. You can always join an online seminar or pick one historical woman to learn more about.

Did you know that the Women’s History Month began in Sonoma County?

The National Women’s History Alliance, was founded in Sonoma County. In 1978, the Education Task Force of the Sonoma County Commission on the Status of Women initiated the first-ever “Women's History Week” celebration.

The weeklong celebration included school programs, speakers, an essay contest, and a parade held in downtown Santa Rosa. The image above is from the 1979 Santa Rosa Women’s History Week parade. Hearing of the success of the Sonoma County program, several prominent women’s groups began lobbying for a national celebration — and in 1980, President Carter issued a Presidential Proclamation declaring the first-ever “Women's History Week” in early March of that year. In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month in perpetuity.

Sonoma County Library celebrates National Women’s History Month with events, displays, and resources, such as those highlighted below. Help us share in this annual tribute by celebrating and learning about the generations of women who influenced and enriched our nation and society.

Celebrating Trans Women as Women

Wednesday, March 22, 6:00pm - 7:30pm - At Windsor Library

Sonoma Land Trust- envites us to join them for a panel discussion, led by author Janna Barkin, featuring panelists who will share their experiences and perspectives as transgender and nonbinary individuals.

As part of Women’s History Month, we’re showcasing Mary Ellen Stuart, one of the first female winemakers in the region and the namesake of the charming Glen Ellen village. Our Glen Oaks Ranch preserve is the home and property where she lived.

There is no denying wineries have dramatically changed our physical landscape in Sonoma County. Where once there were oak groves and orchards, there are often now grape vines.

The change in the landscape began in 1859 when Colonel Charles Stuart purchased land from General Vallejo. He would name his 1,000-acre ranch and vineyard Glen Ellen, after his wife Mary Ellen. When Charles died shortly before harvest in 1880, Mary Ellen took a bold step and took over the winemaking business, something that women in that time would not even considered. That year she nearly doubled the output of the previous years’ wine and became one of Sonoma Valley’s few women winemakers. This was a feat during a time when the legal system did not recognize a woman’s right to run a business!

Mary Ellen contributed to our local history by forging a trail for women in business while also showing an understanding of the land and working to keep it vibrant and fruitful for future generations. Learn more about Glen Oaks Ranch and sign up for a guided hike on our website.
