Message from our PTSA President
Hi Monta Vista!
It’s hard to believe that we are already in the middle of November with the holiday season already upon us, beginning with Diwali (the Festival of Lights), then Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa! While the holidays are meant to be a time for family and friends to come together in a joyous celebration, they can also be a stressful time.
2020 is especially challenging with social distancing and COVID guidelines still in place. Final exams in the midst of this is an additional stressor to our students. With this in mind, the PTSA has organized a 4-week meditation series to help us all find a little calm and peace. The series is open to everyone – parents, students, and staff – read on for more information.
I wish each of you a healthy, happy, and safe holiday season.
With good thoughts,
Mental Health and Community Resources
Fremont Union High School District continues to build on our longstanding efforts to develop resources and partnerships that support the wellness of our students and school community. For the remainder of the school year, we will be partnering with Care Solace, an online resource meant to assist individuals in finding local mental health related programs and counseling services.
Care Solace is now available for use by district families and staff at no cost. All information entered on the Care Solace tool is completely confidential and securely stored. Please note, this service is an optional resource available by choice and is not mandatory in any way. Care Solace is not an emergency response service or mental health services provider. In the event of a life-threatening emergency, please call 9-1-1 or visit your nearest hospital emergency room if you can get there safely.
2. Please remember that we have a wonderful resource in Santa Clara County 211. 211 Connects Bay Area Residents to Current Health & Human Service Information. You may call them to find out what/if resources are available in multiple languages. Here is the link to 211, please click on this link to see what they have to offer:
A big thank you from MVPTSA to Monta Vista’s hard-working teachers, but also administrators, and staff! While we cannot welcome you back to school in person, please know that we appreciate everything you do for our kids.

PSAT Prep Class Offered by RevolutionPrep.com
With the postponement of the Official PSAT/NMSQT test date to January 26, 2021 for all Juniors, MVPTSA has worked with Revolution Prep to offer several options for student preparation in advance of that test.
Revolution Prep is the leader in online tutoring. With almost a decade of experience in online tutoring and over a million hours tutored, they offer the only full-time tutors in the industry. Their courses are engaging and designed to improve students’ understanding of these tests. With their proven score-boosting curriculum and a small group format with 8 students max, students will receive expert attention.
Each course comes with practice tests and a personalized comprehensive improvement plan.*
Revolution Prep has constructed several PSAT Test Prep Courses for our students that will run in the weeks before the official test. There is a 3-week and a 6-week choice to best fit your student’s availability.
Both courses are regularly priced at $499, but with Revolution Prep’s generous $200 Holiday Gift Card offer, they can be purchased for $299 now through 12/31/2021.
The PSAT is used for National Merit Scholarship qualifying purposes and this course will also help to prepare students for this purpose. While only a small percentage of students qualify, this can bring up questions. Please reach out to Tim Good at Revolution Prep if you have questions about how the PSAT fits into your student’s college goals.
If you have any questions or need any support, please reach out to the MVHS-dedicated Academic Advisor, Tim Good at 650-422-3181 or email@example.com
