Mission Valley Elementary School students support their community in many ways. Click on the titles below to learn more about their service projects.
Each year Mission Valley, along with schools throughout the district, raise money for Tulare’s Lighthouse Rescue Mission. This year our Wildcats raised over $1,000 to donate to the outreach needs of women and children in our community.
Jump for Heart is sponsored by the American Heart Association and raises money to help kids with special hearts. Jump for Heart has been a part of Mission Valley since its first year open! This year we raised over $10,000 to help the American Heart Association reach its goals and had a blast celebrating our accomplishments at our event.
United for Good is a partnership of Tulare City Schools geared each year toward a project that will support our local and global community. This year Mission Valley took on supporting “Operation Gratitude” which honors our deployed troops, veterans, and wounded warriors. Students donated items to send to deployed soldiers and also raised money though t-shirt and bracelet sales!
Mission Valley, along with schools across the district, collected toys and canned food for those who need a little extra help this holiday season. Our Wildcats filled bins of toys to make many kids’ Christmas a bit brighter!
Led by our 4th grade teacher, Mr. Decker, his students collect recycling items from classes school-wide throughout the year. This year the class donated just over $800 to help support the work Tulare Animal Control does for the animals in our community.
In 2015, Mission Valley joined Tulare Joint Union High School District schools, along with other Tulare City Schools, in a non-profit organization called Harvesting Hope. This organization harvests crops around Tulare County and donates all food to local families in need. Our first contribution was harvesting corn at our local high school farm; it was a huge success! We helped harvest a total of 21,000 pounds of sweet corn. Over 500 local students, parents, and teachers from all over Tulare and Visalia showed up to help.
