MV Parent Volunteer Opportunities
Mustang Rally is one of the most anticipated celebrations of the school year. Students, teachers and families come together for a fun-filled day of ceremony, field races, silent auction and an unforgettable carnival. It takes a lot of amazing parent volunteers to make this event happen. Please consider signing up to help in one of the areas of the event.
An event chair will reach out to you with more instructions as the event date approaches. Thank you!
Mustang Rally will be held on Friday, April 29, 2022.
