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