Heritage students hope to bring Moonjar project

to Sunnyside

Students from Heritage University will soon be teaching local third grade students the importance of fiscal responsbility through the Moonjar project.

Members of the Heritage University Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) group will bring their Moonjar project to all third grade students in the Sunnyside School District.

Ricardo Guadarrama with the SIFE group said before the project can be brought to the district funds will have to raised. He noted the funds will go toward helping cover the cost of the Moonjar boxes that are used as part of the project. The project teaches students the importance of budgeting, using a box that is divided into three sections so students can decide which money they will spend, share and save.

Guadarrama said SIFE students will be soliciting donations for the project from local businesses, adding that he hopes to bring the Moonjar project to students after Washington Assessment of Student Learning testing is complete. Those interested in learning more about the Moonjar project or who want to donate to the project can contact Guadarrama at (509) 865-8543.
