Mount Vernon Leadership Academy hosts Valentine's Day Boutique

Mount Vernon Leadership Academy hosts Valentine's Day Boutique

Students at Mount Vernon Leadership Academy lined up outside of room 234 with excitement for the Valentine's Day Boutique on Monday, February 5, 2024. The boutique will be running from Monday, February 5, 2024, to Friday, February 9, 2024, from 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Students are able to purchase various items such as roses, jewelry, slime, pens, hair clips and scrunchies.  

“I went for my mom and I wanted her to be my valentine,” said Devine Cooper, fourth grade student at MVLA. “I got her a flower and a ring that says ‘love’ on it.”  

All proceeds from the boutique will go towards funding for field day at the end of the year. Field day gives kids the chance to celebrate the school year coming to an end, by spending the day outside and being active.  

“This is one of the many fundraising things that we do here,” said Miguelina Herandez, parent and volunteer at MVLA. “We do it for Christmas, we do it for Valentine’s Day. It helps cover a lot of the costs for field day or any type of activity that the school ends up planning.”

Scholars could be seen running around outside in the sunshine at Mount Vernon Leadership Academy on Friday, June 7, 2024 for field day. Field day is an annual event where students and staff participate in a series of games and activities. It is an opportunity for the school community to also engage in friendly competition with a backdrop of music and food.
