This year, our goal is to raise $125,000 by April 12th and we need your help. Many programs for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year are dependent on the success of this campaign. The suggested donation amount is $450 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 current and incoming West Valley families.
