Desert Vista Elementary School Hosts Pennies for Patients Drive
By: Apache Junction Unified School District
The students participated in a Pennies for Patients (https://www.penniesforpatients.org/)
Last year the DVES Mustangs raised a little over $830 dollars, but decided to up the ante to increase their goal to $1000. They exceeded their goal the first week and by the end of the campaign they raised $3423.44.
"I am super proud of the accomplishments of our Desert Vista Mustangs," said Michael Brown who teaches third grade and is the advisor for the Student Council. "Two of our students, Isabella Anderson and Judah Anderson joined efforts with their family members and raised over $1,000 on their own. Everyone did a great job."
Desert Vista is a Be Kind school where each day students and staff practice the 10 tenets that make a difference in the lives of others. Each day DVES students proudly share how they actively demonstrate their kindness to others by being respectful, being compassionate, or simply by being a friend!
