Essays should be in the narrative format and address the 4 questions regarding the things we think, say and do: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned?

As you aware, Monte Vista lost an amazing educator. Many current and former families have reached out to inquire how best to honor Mrs. Postal and celebrate her life and impact in our community. The Postal family has reached out to CSU Channel Islands and is setting up a scholarship fund for a future educator. If you are interested in donating to the scholarship fund, you may do so at this link: https://www.gatheringus.com/memorial/mary-postal/5231 . If you are in communication with former MV families, please feel free to share the link with them as well. Our school is still working on memorial ideas for our campus and will keep you posted once a decision has been made.
