There are many ways to support our school.
Landels PTA provides approximately $90,000 each year to the school community. Through the community's generosity, both monetarily and with volunteer hours, we can be proud of our contributions that enable our children to receive programs, technology, equipment, and much more that they would otherwise not have.
Purchase Landels Gear - Show your Landels pride! All proceeds go to our PTA Fund.
Sign up for programs offered at the stores you already shop. Super easy.
Purchase books from the Scholastic Book Fair. Twice a year Landels MUR (Multi-Use Room) is transformed. This is a fabulous opportunity to buy birthday and holiday presents.
Walkathon - Celebrate our community with fun in the sun, games, food, and watch the children earn money for the PTA Fund by walking laps around our field. This event is no small feat. Do you know it takes approximately 100 volunteers to make it possible? Sure does. Please consider volunteering in some way to support our school.
Mountain View Educational Foundation
Mountain View Educational Foundation (MVEF) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that supports the Mountain View Whisman School District by raising money for programs that are implemented district-wide. MVEF's philosophy begins with the belief that every parent wants a well-rounded, high-quality education for their children — one that includes science, technology, art, music, physical education, and more.
Every parent wants a high-quality education for their children, one that goes beyond the basics to include art, music, science, electives and more. But even is a good economy, tax dollars do not fund these vital programs: schools must rely on philanthropic dollars.
MVEF is an independent nonprofit that raises money for the Mountain View Whisman School District. This year, we will support nearly $700,000 in educational programs – $100,000 more than last year.
Why the increase? Because our students deserve more, and we can do better.
We need every family to donate so that we can not only continue to fund the art, music, hands-on science, and environmental education programs everyone expects, but also:
- Increase the number of art and music class sessions by 30% over last year
- Expand art and music classes to transitional kindergarten classes
- Expand Living Classroom garden-based lessons to two additional grades, and now offer academically-relevant classes from TK to fourth grade
- Build on the fourth grade leadership workshops by offering advanced leadership for fifth grade students
- Send every eighth grade student on a five-day, immersive environmental education field trip to Yosemite National Park, regardless of the student’s financial situation
As you can see on the full list of supported programs, MVEF pays for programs that benefit every student, at every school,
Whether you can donate at the suggested donation of $500 per student, at the key donor level of $1500, or support MVEF with a donation of $25 -- please know that every dollar counts!
