Proceeds go toward a variety of programs at MVES such as an online math tutorial program, targeted reading solutions, support of STEM activities, gifted programs, support for general and special education and computer lab supplies. We also partner with MVES Foundation who fully funds the salaries for the computer and science teachers. Register TODAY for updates and items by texting MVES16 to 24-700.
