MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán) is an organization that seeks to inform and educate people of issues affecting Chicanos and other minorities.

MEChA at Wilsonville High School meets every Thursday in Mr. Ryan’s room (RM 215) during lunch to discuss these issues and to plan events.

MEChA hosts and puts together cultural events such as Hispanic Heritage Month, Dia de Los Muertos, and Cinco de Mayo. MEChA also embarks on many educational field trips to learn more about Hispanic cultural, college, and how to become more involved in the community.

However, in order to keep doing these events and participating in these trips, MEChA needs money. Throughout the year, MEChA engages in several fund raising activities, such as car wash and selling Jarritos.

Jarritos are a very popular flavored soda pop. It originates in Mexico and comes in several flavors such as tamarind, mango, pineapple, lime, fruit punch, strawberry and many more. On Fridays during lunch, MEChA sells these delicious drinks for $1.75  in order to raise money for their engagements.

This month they are doing a Battle of the Classes. This is where the members of the club are divided into four groups; freshman, sophomores, juniors, and seniors. For the next four weeks they will be battling to see which class can sell the most Jarritos. The class that does sell more Jarritos will receive a tasty treat. So make sure to bring some money to support your class and look out Friday during lunch for people pushing a shopping cart with a cooler in it, possibly ringing a bell or playing for Latin tunes.
