Rock the School House 2017
On Saturday, November 11, the Mounds View Schools Education Foundation hosted its 6th annual Rock the School House - a fundraiser supporting the students in the Mounds View School District.
Guests were entertained by both chamber ensembles from Irondale and Mounds View High Schools as well combined select singers from the Irondale and Mounds View High School choir programs. In addition, middle school students from Chippewa, Edgewood and Highview showcased the STEAM mindset of learning at innovation stations demonstrating 3D printers, robots and catapults.
Thanks to those in attendance a record of $65,000 was raised to support programs for students throughout our schools. “We are very appreciative of the extraordinary generosity of those that contributed through the silent and live auctions and fund-a-need at Rock the School House” said Steve Yoch, president of the MVSEF board. “It was an awesome evening and we are profoundly grateful to everyone who contributed to a successful event.”
The Mounds View Schools Education Foundation's mission is to engage our community to invest in excellence in Mounds View Public Schools. This year, the MVSEF is pleased to support the following initiatives: STEAM education, Laurentian Environmental Center, and the Equity Promise Scholarship Program. Additionally, we are excited about increasing the number of school owned instruments ensuring access for all students and supporting the Intentional Social Interaction community meetings, which provide underrepresented families the opportunity to engage with district staff and community members.
