Castro Christmas Party

For many years, it has been our tradition to host a Christmas Party for Castro Elementary first grade students. MVA Student Association officers would set up the cafeteria with festive decorations and traditional Christmas colors. The staff would prepare and serve hot breakfast (eggs, pancakes, hash browns, fresh fruit, juice and milk) for all Castro school guests and MVA students. Presents were handed out and pictures were taken with Santa Claus. There would also be fun games in the gym.

Did COVID-19 change the tradition? Well, yes and no!

Even though we cannot have them in-person at MVA, we are still providing gifts and pre-packaged snacks to be delivered to Castro School on December 14th and they will arrange a pick up day for their students.

Everyone is involve for this MVA tradition to continue. Each MVA student brings a TOY ($10-$15), already sanitized, wrapped and labeled as "for a girl or for a boy". If you are a boy, buy a toy for a boy, and if you are a girl, buy a toy for a girl. You may drop these off at the MVA office during business hours, no later than Wednesday, December 9th.

As we begin the holiday season, may we reflect and be thankful for all the blessings we have during these crazy times in history. We are so grateful for technology that still allow us to sing together even though we are apart. Enjoy one of our favorite songs of praise, sung by our MVA Praise Team.
