WVPTO Direct Donation Drive Ends TOMORROW!!!

West Valley Elementary

Hello West Valley Families!

Our WVPTO Annual Direct Donation Drive officially ends TOMORROW! We are SO close to reaching our goal! As of last count we are at approximately 95% of our $110,000 goal! If you have already donated, THANK YOU! If not, there is still time! We want to meet (or even better yet, exceed) our goal so we can all see Principal Robinson and 14 other teachers take a pie to the face at our April 21st Community Gathering! And more importantly, we want to ensure the WVPTO continues to offer our children enriching programs and support staff in the 2017-2018 school year.


Don’t forget that corporate matching is a great way to make your donation go further. Many local companies participate in corporate matching for non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations. Here are just a few examples: Adobe, Apple, Boston Scientific, Broadcom, Cadence, Cisco, Facebook, Google, Intuit, Juniper, Kaiser, LinkedIn, Microsoft, PayPal, Qualcomm, Salesforce, SAP, Symantec, TiVo, and Yahoo! If you don’t see your company’s name on this list, ask your HR department if your company participates. If you need an expedited receipt to complete your corporate match, please let us know when you submit your donation. Also, if you make your individual donation for your company’s corporate match through a 3rd party site (i.e. Benevity), please fill out and return the attached contribution form so we can account for it.


Now, here are the latest class standings for the classroom competitions:
