Monte Vista has the potential to earn amazing contributions through community fundraising programs!
Dine Out Tuesdays
Enjoy meals at La Cabanita Mexican Restaurant (3447 N. Verdugo Road, Montrose) on any Tuesday, and they will generously donate a portion of proceeds to the Monte Vista PTA! Be sure to turn in your receipt to the cashier, and ask them to put it in the Monte Vista folder.
Recycle for Monte Vista!
We collect plastic bottles and aluminum cans only, and they should be bagged separately. Simply drop off your bags in the bike rack area on Tuesday mornings from 7:30-8:10 a.m. (weather permitting). The money that we earn is used to purchase PE equipment for grades K-6. It's a great way to help save our planet and support our school as well.
Please enroll your Ralphs Reward Card into the community contribution program, and designate Monte Vista Elementary School PTA (NPO#84292) to receive contributions. Or, simply print the Ralphs Scanbar Letter and give to a cashier next time you go shopping. www.ralphs.com Questions: 800-443-4438
