Mar 22, 2023 | All School, Blog, News

The Week of Impact kicks off this Saturday, and we’re excited for the opportunity to learn, serve, and give together! From March 25 to April 1, Mount Vernon is coming together to positively impact our community through volunteer outings, fellowship events, and charitable opportunities.

We caught up with Kristy Lundstrom, Head of School to get some of her thoughts on The Week of Impact and what it means to her.

MVFund Unlocking Challenge through April 1

It’s time to have some fun, make some memories, and most importantly, make a positive impact on those around us. How will you and your family get involved this week?
