Mountain Vista Wish Week





Wish Week

Feb. 5 - Feb. 10





It’s that time of year again! We are so excited to have our Mountain Vista Community joining us once more for our partnership with the Make A Wish Foundation! For the past six years, Mountain Vista has sponsored a child with a terminal illness from the Make A Wish Foundation. We put together a week full of activities, spirit days, fundraisers, and assemblies to come together as a school and community to grant the wish of our promoted Wish Kid, as well as to raise money to grant other wishes for the children of the foundation!


In 2017, Mountain Vista set the National Record for the Make A Wish Foundation, granting over 17 Wishes! Our goal for 2018 is to grant 13 Wishes: one for our Wish Kid, and one for each month of the year!



T-SHIRT SALES: January 1st - January 24th
