Challenge Day Coming: Sign up!

Challenge Day is THURSDAY, February 1, 2018 THERE IS ONLY ONE CHALLENGE DAY FOR THIS SCHOOL YEAR. Visit this page for a permission slip or Invitation to Students (informational letter). What do attendees say about Challenge Day? People say they had a lot of fun, it opened their eyes, they laughed, they cried, they saw others in a new light, felt more connected and alive. They'll say that they want to go again. But it is hard to describe an experience. Experience Challenge Day for yourself. Greatly increase your social/emotional IQ in one day, on your road to greater happiness.

Challenge Day is free, held in the gym, and lunch is provided. Everyone (students, teachers, parents, staff) is welcome to register. Space is limited, so register early. If you attended Challenge Day before, you are eligible to be a Teen Leader. If this is you, write "Teen Leader" at the top of your Permission Slip. Students need to turn in a completed Permission Slip to Richard Prinz, Student Advocate. You can put the Slip in Richard's mailbox in the Main Office or his office is Room D204.

Mandarin Course on Parenting
Parents, want to better connect with your teen? Monta Vista's Ya-Huei Chi will teach a FREE three-session parenting course beginning Jan 25 and ending February 8th, on Thursday evenings in the Career Center. Please plan to attend all three sessions, running from 6 to 8 pm. It is taught in Mandarin Chinese and is the same curriculum as the course taught by Richard Prinz in English earlier in the school year. You can see more information at the MV Parenting Page or register at this Eventbrite Page.
