April 23, 2016 (Spring Valley) -- Students and staff at Monte Vista High School know that Mondays are special. They are faculty work days; classes begin two hours later than usual so students get the chance to sleep in. But this coming Monday, April 25th, won’t be a typical one for the Monarch student body. Instead of sleeping in, more than 200 students and staff members will work with “Stop Hunger Now” to package 40,000 meals for needy children in developing countries. The students and staff are excited to be a part of this community service event hosted by their school and nearby Foothills United Methodist Church.
