I've paid out-of-pocket nearly $7,000 on CSMA classes. People like me should be thanked as well.

And, thanks to the Mountain View Educational Foundation, who is the organization who pays for CSMA to come to the elementary schools.

Not only would these students not have gotten scholarships, but they would probably not have had art/music at all if not for generous donations from parents and local businesses to MVEF.

Congratulations to the students who received scholarships!

We are extremely lucky to have the Mountain View Educational Foundation. If it weren't for them, we probably wouldn't have art and music classes at all in the district. Do drop in on their web site (Web Link) read up on what they do, and consider donating a little something.
