Memory Books Available for Purchase
Hello Mountain View Families --
The big day is almost here: Memory Books are being distributed
next week! Students should come home with their pre-purchased
copy of the MVE 2013 Memory Book on Monday or Tuesday.
If you would like to purchase one of our VERY FEW extra copies,
they will be sold at the school. Books are $35.00 CASH ONLY
(exact change preferred), and will be sold at Mountain View
before school begins on Tuesday, May 21st. They will be sold in
the hallway of the main building, and students may purchase on
their way to their classroom. There are very few extra copies
-- so they will go very fast. When the copies are gone, there
will be no more for 2013.
We thank all of you once again for your contributions to the book
-- countless pictures and ideas -- and for your support of the
MVE PTA with any book purchase.
