WVPTO Direct Donation Drive: LAST DAY! $37,000 to go! Let's sprint to the finish!
Wed, Apr 12 9:46am

TODAY is the last day for your donation to count toward exciting prizes! <Donate Now>

Money raised to date: $88,000 (including Corp Match)
Campaign goal progress: 70%
School-wide participation rate: 41%

Yesterday was our biggest jump yet – $24,000 in the last 24 hours. Let's keep it going and sprint to the finish today! THANK YOU to all families who have donated so far. Your generosity will help us continue to fund important staffing roles and programs for the next school year. If you have not yet donated, there's still time! While we will continue to accept donations through the end of the school year, TODAY is the last day for your donation to count toward our classroom competitions. If we reach the end of the day with at least $125,000, our students will be eligible for a chance to smash a pie in the face of a teacher or Principal Lin! Let's make this happen!

In the coming month, we will be discussing and approving a budget for the 2023-2024 school year that would exceed $200,000 in order to continue all the programs we have come to love and expect. The money raised from this DDD campaign won't cover it all, and we may be forced to reduce some staff hours or cut programs. Please help us minimize these disruptions by donating today.

Important Reminders:

  • If you donated through your employer's corporate match program, don't forget to fill out the online donation form so we can account for your donation and properly credit your child’s classroom and grade level for participation.
  • If you donated through Konstella or by check and indicated that you will request corporate matching funds, please remember to submit those requests with your company promptly!
  • Every donation of any amount counts! If you value the enrichment experiences your child receives at WV, please contribute something toward this group goal. We are asking every family to help at whatever level they are able – no donation is too small! We strive for a 100% participation rate from all West Valley families.

Here are the standings for the classroom/grade competitions as of this morning...

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

  • 1st place – Mrs. Erikson (Room 30)
  • 2nd place – Mrs. Koerner (Room 9)
  • 3rd place – Mrs. Kakes (Room 1)

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.
