Nineteen San Marcos Middle School 8th graders have been working very hard in preparation for an international Model United Nations conference in New York City at the end of the month.

Last year you met our team who really appreciated your encouragement, support and beautiful certificates! They had an incredible time in New York with one of our delegate teams winning special recognition. So I’m asking you to again support our new student delegation one last time as they head off to New York where they will seek to solve a variety global challenges. To learn more check out our attached proposal and conference website.

A few weeks ago we started our fundraising campaign for the NYC International Model United Nations Conference and now it includes a Crowdfunding site. So please consider supporting this project by making a small donation and forwarding this message on to others who see value in this kind of learning experience. These students have been researching, writing, debating, public speaking and collaborating since last August. They have attended two high school conferences – a first for a San Diego County middle school – and won recognition at the second conference held at Mission Viejo high school where they held their own against 9-12th graders from Orange and LA county high schools.

You are invited to our “Meet the Delegates” evening March 18th at 6pm in our school’s MPR to hear them explain their country’s position on their assigned topic. Our delegation’s students – our future leaders and peacemakers – have an incredible diplomatic experience awaiting them. Consider investing in this endeavor!

Please write or call with any ideas or suggestions you may have regarding this project. I look forward to hearing from you!
