Welcome to the MVTHS Foundation

Foundation Announces 2018-19 Annual Project
We are building a better world one Ram at a time with this one. Or more accurately, we are teaching one Ram at a time to build! The Foundation is committed to funding over $20,000 for woodshop equipment and materials.
The new CTE Wing already has an impressive space in classroom D111, originally designed to be a woodshop. It includes all the necessary ventilation, overhead doors, and loft space, but is missing the tools, benches, work-tables, safety gear, lumber, and students necessary to start a construction and woodworking trades course.
The current 2018-2019 school year is offering and enrolling students into the introductory course for woodworking and construction basics will begin in August 2019. This course is the stepping stone to higher level woodshop courses which will eventually lead to a 4 year construction and trades program.
How can you be part of this project? $150 is the approximate cost to sponsor one building trades student by purchasing their hand tool set and needed lumber for one school year. Please consider donating, whether it be less or more - everything helps.

The Foundation fully supports the national Giving Tuesday initiative and hopes that you will consider supporting our Annual Project on November 27th.  Simply click the DONATE button or mail your check to the post office box.  Thank you!
