About MVAB

Summary:  

Monte Vista Athletic Boosters is a parent-based non-profit organization that supports Monte Vista’s Student Athletes.  Athletics in our school district is primarily funded through donations.  Along with our administration and coaching staff, we ensure that each Student Athlete has the proper facilities and support needed to participate in school athletics.  We accomplish this through our parent volunteers whose fundraising efforts include Stadium Advertising, Snack Shack operations Spirit Wear clothing and accessory sales, Capital Campaigns, and Events like the annual Oktoberfest and Crab Feed events.

Our Mission:  

The mission of MVAB is to support the philosophy of MVHS Athletics to provide “a positive atmosphere of sportsmanship and learning”[1] for the MVHS student-athlete and their athletic Club/Team[2], in conjunction with the MVHS philosophy of providing an “environment which promote respect for students, teachers and parents for the rights of persons and property”[3] through funding, education, and service programs.

MVAB fulfills its Mission as follows:

  • FUNDING
