Service Learning Opportunity in November:

Mujeres Luchadoras Progresistas (Women Striving for Progress):  The SES Wreath and Poinsettia Sale is a school-wide fundraiser that benefits our entire community. This year our wreath sale will again support Sunnyside and also Mujeres Luchadoras Progresistas (Women Striving for Progress). Mujeres Luchadoras Progresistas (MLP) is a group of farm worker women who create economic development and promote leadership among women in their community. By purchasing our wreaths from MLP we can support these efforts. Middle school students can sign up to make wreaths with MLP in November, fulfilling cultural and community service hours.  CHECK WITH CORI TO SIGN UP FOR THIS TRIP TO SALEM!
