The Monte Vista Keynoters is a non-profit 501(c)3 parent and community booster organization making high quality Instrumental Music (IM) education possible at Monte Vista High School. The Keynoters organization provides the funds and volunteers required to operate our successful and award-winning program. Since neither the School District or the State provides funding for the IM program, we are self-funded by class donations from parents and fundraising. We rely on parent donations to cover approximately 70% of the total annual IM program budget. The remaining 30% of funding comes from several fundraisers that Keynoter volunteers produce and manage each year.
Parent donations to the Keynoters directly benefit your student, covering the many costs necessary to sustaining a quality Instrumental Music program. These costs include items such as:
Entry fees and transportation costs for competitions
Instrument purchase and repair
Coaches and clinicians
Equipment and facilities improvement

Don't miss your chance to volunteer for your student! SRVUSD requires all volunteers to register
The SRVUSD requires all adults who wish to volunteer on a school campus, in classrooms or drive and chaperone on field trips to register on their Volunteer Management System to better track and provide the appropriate level of clearance for volunteers. Parents MAY NOT chaperone or drive students unless they are cleared prior to the event. The process generally takes 2 weeks so register early! Contact Chris Watson (firstname.lastname@example.org or 925-552-2863) in the MVHS Counseling office with questions.
