This year the Zervas 5th graders are raising money for the Make a Wish Foundation. Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has given hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions. It all started with one boy’s wish to be a police officer and has grown into an organization that grants a child’s wish in the U.S. every 40 minutes!
One way that we are going to be fundraising is by placing bins in Zervas classrooms. This is called the Make Change Drive and the 5th grade would really appreciate it, if you would bring change in to your classrooms to contribute. This change can be brought in anytime from April 1st – April 12th. Our goal is to raise $750 school wide, but we also asked each class to set a goal. Some classes set a $50 goal, while others set a goal of $100 or more. Ask your child what their classroom goal is.
The Zervas Fair is coming up and this year the 5th graders are going to be running a booth to raise money for Make a Wish as well. We’re working on a fun idea for the booth, be sure to keep an eye out for us at the Fair!
