    Thank you, MV community!
A Message of Thanks from Head of School Lynn Casto:

I want to thank everyone who contributed to, attended, and donated during the 46th annual MV Gala, our Speakeasy Soiree, on April 27. It was truly a spectacular event, made all the more special by the presence and generosity of so many MV supporters.
        Your support, from attending the gala to donating items and contributing to our fundraising efforts, has once again demonstrated the extraordinary spirit of generosity and camaraderie that defines our community.
        Thanks to your collective efforts, we were able to raise an incredible $305,000 in gross proceeds, including more than $110,000 from the Raise the Paddle efforts. That money is going specifically to support our faculty and staff salaries.
        I am continually humbled by the depth of commitment and passion that our community exhibits. Your generosity not only provides vital support for our faculty and staff but also reinforces the invaluable bonds that unite us as a community.
        Together, we have proven time and again that when we come together as a community, there is no limit to what we can achieve.
        Once again, thank you for your unwavering support and dedication to Maumee Valley. We are truly fortunate to have such an engaging and generous community standing beside us.
