West Valley Elementary


Dear West Valley Parents,


I hope you had an enjoyable and safe Winter Break! Now that school is back in session, we are kicking off our annual Direct Donation Drive, which funds approximately half of the West Valley Parent Teacher Organization’s (WVPTO) budget for the year.


Here are your donations in action this school year:

  • Materials and equipment to establish and maintain our new Creative Lab (C-Lab) ($40,000) 
  • (3) Instructional Aides ($53,000)
  • A new certified art teacher, hired directly for West Valley ($25,000)
  • K-3 music program through the Community School for Music and Art  ($21,400)
  • Additional hours for our Technology Clerk and Library Clerk ($25,400)
  • Technology infrastructure ($20,000)
  • Reading Intervention Materials, Project Cornerstone, Valet Program, Family Science Night, Community Events, and so much more!


This year, our goal is to raise $110,000 and we need your help. Many programs for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year are dependent on the success of this campaign. The suggested donation amount is $400 per family with one student, plus $150 for each additional student at West Valley. Please donate what you can - every donation and any amount is appreciated and makes a difference. We are striving for 100% participation from West Valley families.


Donations are tax deductible! WVPTO is a registered 501(c)3 non profit organization. Our tax ID number is 46-5663137. A donation receipt will be provided.
