ARE YOU A NEW STUDENT TO MONTE VISTA?

WELCOME TO OUR PRIDE!

Big picture

SEE WHAT SOME OF OUR NEW FAMILIES HAVE TO SAY! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LOVING OUR SCHOOL!!

Melissa Marie Ramirez

Thank you for all your support, encouragement, and calming energy. We adore you Mrs. Hall!! Helena is doing amazing and is exceeding her goals! When we first arrived Helena had anxiety, she was distressed, introverted, and full of fear. She was afraid of Math and would cry due to feeling she could not learn it. She has special education in math (Dyscalculia) and her prior experience caused much pain for her. Since joining the Monte Vista family only 2 months ago our lives have dramatically changed!!! Helena is so happy!!! She has self-esteem, is highly motivated & has confidence. She has met a friend and hopes to meet more. Thank you!

WE ARE THRILLED YOU ARE A PART OF OUR PRIDE!

MONTE VISTA WAS AWARDED $1,000!!

Big picture

Logix Federal Credit Union selected Monte Vista for its annual 12 Days of Giving. Logix is sharing $1,000 with one local school daily from December 1 to December 12. This year, schools within Simi Valley Unified School District (SVUSD) will receive these funds.


“This gift from Logix comes at the right time, our school has grown exponentially, and we plan to use the money to help build school spirit with our students and staff. To have local businesses connect with our educators is good for all of us; knowing they care about our future leaders is heartwarming. I remember being at the Logix grand opening at Tapo Canyon in 2014; the staff there continues to do good work in the community.” ~ Dr. Pietrolungo


Logix has been in Simi Valley since 2009, and Branch Managers Billy Santangelo and Ben Wagner are proud to be part of the 12 Days of Giving. “We are privileged to be able to contribute to the schools to help bring even more opportunities for positive experiences,” Santangelo said. “My wife is a teacher; I see firsthand how things have changed during the last few months. And, administrators and teachers continue to persevere; it’s admirable.” With two branches in Simi Valley – one on Tapo Canyon Road, and the other on Cochran Street – Logix has many members who are parents within SVUSD.


“We’ve received feedback from members; they have expressed their gratitude for our commitment to education,” Wagner said. “We’re happy that they agree that giving back to schools is just smarter.”
