WVPTO Direct Donation Drive: THREE DAYS and $72,000 to go! Still less than halfway to our goal!
Mon, Apr 10 10:36am

THREE DAYS left and $72,000 to go to meet our $125,000 goal by April 12! <Donate Now>

Money raised to date: $53,000 (including Corp Match)
Campaign goal progress: 42%
School-wide participation rate: 25%

If you have already donated, THANK YOU for helping us continue to fund important staffing roles and programs for the next school year. As of today, we are still LESS THAN HALFWAY to our campaign goal. We are unfortunately very behind compared to last year when we had raised almost 75% at this point in the campaign.

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.

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.

Important Reminders:

  • If you donated through your employer's corporate match program, don't forget 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!

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. Kakes (Room 1)
  • 3rd place – Mrs. Han (Room 22)

Mrs. Peters, Mrs. Koerner, and Mrs. Downey's classes are close behind! A single donation can change these standings!

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

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

Anything can happen in these last few days!

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.
