MVL does not stand alone today. We are built on the families and supporters of the last 40 years. We are also built for the families and supporters yet to come. Above all, our foundation and future is centered on Christ alone.

The 2018-19 school year marks MVL’s 40th anniversary. Indeed, “The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy” (Psalm 126:3). This verse is our school year theme. It is a wonderful reminder of how our loving Lord has provided for us and continues to bless us.

Because this is a special time for the entire MVL family, two particularly special things will be happening this year.

$40 for 40

First, we invite you to be part of $40 for 40. Our goal is to raise $40,000 throughout the school year for the MVL Partnership Fund.

Will you join in this partnership? $40 or $400, every gift impacts students today, yet will bear fruit and multiply for years to come.

The image to the right marks our progress! You can help make our blessings overflow by donating online or sending in a gift.

Anniversary Celebrations

Second, rather than one large celebration, we are recognizing the 40th anniversary throughout the year. We hope you will be able to visit campus and participate in events as your schedule allows.

  • Various athletic games, concerts, and drama performances
  • Homecoming festivities for alumni and friends on October 4-6
  • WELS Regional Choral Fest, which is being hosted at MVL on November 9-11
  • Spirit of MVL events on November 17
  • Booster Club Auction on March 23

Ruby red is the traditional color for a 40th anniversary. Therefore, keep an eye out for this color at our events and activities!

Alumni Reunion Ensembles

Another opportunity exists for our almost 2,000 alumni! Principal Tim Plath is gathering names for alumni reunion music ensembles throughout the year. This includes a Homecoming Pep Band and choir to sing the national anthem. Register your name, voice part or instrument, and level of interest by emailing Kristin Matzke.
