Happy New Year to our Family of Supporters
Thanks to generous year-end donations from parents, alumni and community members, the MVLA Foundation is well on its way to achieving the $1,704,000 it needs to fully fund this school year’s initiatives which benefit all students.
Parents: If you haven’t yet made your donation for the 2017-18 school year, please review the set of programs and services our foundation funds and the benefits your student receives as a result.
Your participation matters. We hope you will join our “Family of Supporters” and help us meet this year’s goal!

New College & Career Center Staff
The MVLA Foundation is funding a new position in the College & Career Centers (C&CCs) at both LAHS and MVHS campuses which will allow the centers to shift from a resource center to an advice/counseling center and will hopefully broaden and deepen student utilization.
Jessica Yazdani (right) has joined the MVHS C&CC staff to assume Ms. Tabuchi's former role as C&CC Coordinator where she will coordinate college visits and the many workshops, presentations and evening events hosted by the C&CC for students and parents. After one and a half years as the MVHS C&CC Coordinator, Jaimie Tabuchi (left), will take on the newly-created position of College Counselor at MVHS.
At LAHS, Angela Price recently joined the C&CC as College Counselor. Ms. Price has experience as a college admissions officer at Connecticut College, as well as a College Advisor at Berkeley High School. Andrea Gorman will continue in her role as C&CC Coordinator.
Both Ms. Tabuchi and Ms. Price hope to offer students more personalized guidance and support as they plan and prepare for life after high school. They will be offering all juniors and seniors a one-on-one meeting to help navigate the college application process and hopefully create a less stressful experience for all involved.
