Welcome to Earth Day!

On Thursday, February 11th, we are hosting our first Welcome to Earth Day! Your children have worked extremely hard on creating aliens that have adapted to live on other planets in our solar system. On Thursday, students from Mrs. Howard's class, Mr. Edmondson's class, and my class will show off their aliens and their passports as they visit Earth for a day before returning to their planets! This will take place in Mrs. Howard and Mr. Edmondson's room so feel free to visit us there!

Make A Wish

Hello Feeder Community!

Every year Mountain Vista High School hosts Wish Week. This year it is February 15-20th. This is a very important time of year for us. During this week, as a school and community, we come together and adopt a Wish Kid through the Make a Wish Foundation.

The Mountain Vista community has completed three wish week's thus far granting over 12 wishes and with your support, we have big goals for this year!

Spirit Week

This year, with our Valentine’s Day theme of giving back through Parties With a Purpose, Student Council has decided to sell hearts for a $1. The hearts will replace the sale of candygrams this year and the money will go towards Marlee’s wish! You can purchase these at the front office or from your child’s classroom teacher. The hearts can be purchased on behalf of individual students, families, or friends and will be displayed on a bear outside of the main office. Please view Mrs. Holtz's Website under announcements to see what each day is!


Last year Mountain Vista sponsored 4-year- old named Asher and granted his wish to take his family to Disney World. Through buying “Wish Shirts”, attending events, donating online and spreading the word to family and friends, the MVHS community raised a total of $62,000 for the Make a Wish Foundation!! That is the second largest school donation in the state! Not only did we grant Asher’s wish, but 8 other wishes as well! Mountain Vista students, parents and community members showed everyone last year just what it means to be a come together. To show others what it means to put others first, to give back and to something bigger than yourself.

This February will be the 4th annual Wish Week at Mountain Vista, yet this year will not be like any other. This year, Mountain Vista has the honor of granting 9-year-old Marlee’s wish. Marlee is currently fighting rhabdomyosarcoma (a rare malignant tumor involving striated muscle tissue). However, Marlee does not let rhabdomyosarcoma stop her. Marlee is a soccer playing, animal loving, full of energy young girl. Marlee’s full Wish is to GIVE. Her goal is to build as many Build-A-Bear stuffed animals as she possibly can and personally deliver them to other kids that are spending time at Children’s Hospital. Along with Marlee’s wish, Mountain Vista hopes to grant 10 other wishes in her honor.

However despite what Marlee has been through in such a short time, her spirit never diminished! Mountain Vista needs YOUR help to grant Marlee’s wish and help her give back to others facing similar situations as her.

As you can see Wish week cannot be conquered by one single school, but with your help, we as the Mountain Vista community will reach our goal of granting Marlee’s wish along with 10 others. We would like to thank you in advance for your generosity toward Mountain Vista’s Wish Week.

Thank you,

Mountain Vista High School and the Make a Wish Foundation
