Penny Wars to Support Make a Wish

Penny Wars to Support Make a Wish
For those of you less familiar START HERE!  
This is an amazing organization. Every 37 minutes Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. They believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. Understand that the hope and happiness that fills a kiddo when they experience their wish has a direct impact on their health as it empowers children to fight harder against their illness.  This is a very powerful video showing the Power of a Wish.
This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.    The New Mexico chapter was established in 1986, and in January of 1987 MAW NM was able to grant it's first wish for a NM kiddo. In the past 30 years MAW NM has granted more than 2,200 Wishes to New Mexico children!   

For those of you who are familiar & excited to know what this has to do with MCE START HERE!
I am so excited that MCE will be hosting a Kids for Kids wishes fundraiser.  Our goal is to raise enough money as a school to fulfill the wish for one kiddo in our community. We are currently the only school in New Mexico taking this on!  Let's show Make a Wish what the Dragon spirit is all about! Here is what you need to know now:
1. Online giving is now available at this link. 
2. 11/16/2018 we will have an assembly during which a Rio Rancho Wish family will share what Make a Wish has meant for their family. 
3. We will have information to share with parents the week of conferences.
4. School-wide Penny Wars will begin 11/26 and run for that week.  For each $10.00 your class earns you will get a Make a Wish Star to hang on your door.  The class with the most stars will win a pizza party from Papa John's pizza.  The student from each class who brings in the most $ will receive a bracelet from Make a Wish.
