WVPTO Direct Donation Drive: FINAL HOURS! Just $23,000 to go! Let's go, Wildcats!!
Wed, Apr 12 9:34pm

FINAL HOURS for your donation to count toward exciting prizes! <Donate Now>

Money raised to date: $102,000 (including Corp Match)
Campaign goal progress: 82%
School-wide participation rate: 50%

Just a few hours left for our classroom/grade competitions! The race is so close – see below for the current standings. THANK YOU to all families who have donated so far. Some families have even donated a second time – we are so grateful! If you are one of the 50% of WV families that has not donated yet, please consider making a contribution NOW to help reach our goal. We are asking every family to help at whatever level they are able – no donation is too small!

To put some perspective on this direct ask, here are some cost comparisons to outside programs...

  • One session of art or gymnastics: $150+
  • One season of recreational soccer: $200-300
  • One week of summer camp: $300-500
  • Can you put a similar amount toward one year of on-site enrichment, support, and community events? That's 28+ weeks of Art, Music, Recess 101, extra Library access, classroom support, and so much more. $500 would be under $18 per week!
  • We hope everyone can find a way to put at least $1/week toward these extras that help make West Valley a thriving community. Please consider a $30 donation if you weren't already planning on donating. This amount from the remaining 50% of students would bring in an additional $5000+ toward our community goal. Every bit makes a difference!

Here are the standings for the classroom/grade competitions as of 9pm tonight...

Highest Classroom % Participation to Date (winning class gets a donut party!): 

  • 1st place – Mrs. Koerner (Room 9)
  • 2nd place – Mrs. Erikson (Room 30)
  • 3rd place – TIED: Mrs. Kakes (Room 1) & Mrs. Burbank (Room 31)

The race is so close! Make sure your donation gets in before midnight!

Highest Grade Level % Participation to Date (winning grade gets a Kona Ice party!):

  • 1st place – First Grade
  • 2nd place – Kindergarten
  • 3rd place – Second Grade

A single donation can change these standings! Anything can happen in the home stretch!

Don't forget: if we reach our $125,000 donation goal by Wednesday, April 12, all students of families that have donated to this year’s Direct Donation Drive will be entered into a random drawing for the crowning prize… One lucky student from each participating classroom will have the opportunity to THROW A PIE IN THE FACE of a teacher or Principal Lin at the April Community Gathering.

Please show your support by making a donation today if you haven't already done so.
