Each year MWS participates in Fundraisers for different causes. Over the years we are pleased to have participated to raise awareness and money. Since our school is funded soley by school tuition we raise money for various things for our students. Every year our families do so much through volunteer hours and personally fund our efforts. Thank you to all our families, past and present!
Relay for Life
We are so proud of our students and parent for participating in 2012 Relay for Life in Hunters Creek. We raised close to $2,500 for this amazing cause. Each student participated in a child marathon for 6 weeks to raise money and walked the final 1.25 mile lap to raise awareness. We also had a site at Relay for Life event where our families camped and walked lap after lap for 21 hours!
Scholastic Book Fair
In October 2012 we hosted the Scholastic Book fair to raise money for our library, we raised over $300 for new books.
Five years ago, a beautiful little girl was enrolled in our school as a Kindergartner. For this little girl, it was a totally new experience. Thus far, she had spent most of her life either in her home or in a hospital. Accordingly, her parents were less worried about her academic achievement and more concerned about finding her a suitable germ free environment to socialize with peers. Luckily, she received both with us. As she learned new skills every day, we in turn started to understand more and more about her disease, Cystic Fibrosis. What we learned was devastating. We decided to get involved with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Since then, it has become a tradition at our School to walk for CF (Cystic Fibrosis). Each year, our children, our staff and our parents participate in a walk-a-thon for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which is non-profit. We have raised thousands of dollars every year. Last year, Team Lauren raised over 5,000 dollars. Our School alone raised three thousand, three hundred and thirty seven dollars! We want to continue with our commitment until the research is complete and a cure is found.

Touch Star Cinemas and BJ’s Restaurant are sponsoring our walk for the third year in a row, thank you! This year’s event will unfold as follows: On Friday, June 4, we will walk from our School to the South Chase Theatres. After our walk, we will enjoy a newly released kids movie. Finally, we shall have a short ceremony and a pizza lunch back at our School.
BJ’s Brew House Inc is a major sponsor of this event. They agreed to continue pledging their matching funds up to $2,000.00 ($1,000 going to the CF Foundation, the other to our School). Other schools have caught wind of the success of this fundraiser, and now BJ’s has had to limit the number of matching grants. It will be given to the first 40 schools nationwide that can raise $1,000. The CF Foundation is urging us to send in the funds ASAP, so our chance at winning the $1,000.00 BJ’s donation and the pizza party is higher.
Therefore, we are asking you to send in your donations no later than April 5, 2010.
If you have any questions, please talk to your child’s teacher or see Mrs. V.
