Friends of Mosaic Academy to Raise Funds, Awareness during School Choice Week

Local business leaders, school staff & school families to continue
working towards new building goals

AZTEC, N.M.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Friends of Mosaic Academy will host its 2nd Annual
Jubilee of School Choice to raise funds for the construction of a
permanent educational facility for students.

The festivities begin on Friday, January 20 at 7 p.m. at the Courtyard
by Marriott in Farmington, N.M. The theme for this year’s celebration is
a Hollywood-esque “Reach for the Stars” motif, as the group continues to
raise funds for the construction of a new permanent education facility
for Mosaic Academy Charter School.

Vangie Garza Neil of the Aztec Chamber of Commerce will act as Master of
Ceremonies. Student performances, live Jazz music, and an elegant dinner
are on the evening’s agenda. The keynote speakers include Connie Dove of
Dove Property Advisors, who specializes in charter school development
and has located, secured, financed and developed permanent facilities
for many New Mexico charter and private schools.

Mosaic Academy is a public charter school in the Aztec Municipal Schools
district, serving 180 students in grades K – 8.

The goal of the event is to celebrate great education choices in New
Mexico and raise awareness among parents about school choice. The
celebration is timed to take place right before National School Choice
Week (January 22-28, 2017), which will feature more than 21,000 events
across the country.

“Friends of Mosaic Academy is participating in National School Choice
Week because we strongly believe that parents have the right to choose
the best educational setting for their child and are looking forward to
providing another option for New Mexico families,” said Aleshia Raether,
secretary for the organization.

Held every January, National School Choice Week is an independent public
awareness effort designed to shine a positive spotlight on effective
education options for every child. Through more than 21,000
independently planned events across the country, National School Choice
Week raises public awareness of all types of educational choices
available to children. These options include traditional public schools,
public charter schools, public magnet schools, online learning, private
schools, and homeschooling. You can learn more by visiting
