Hi, WGE families! We hope you had a truly wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed the time with your loved ones.
If you are considering making charitable gifts this year for Giving Tuesday (tomorrow), we hope you will include the Willow Glen Elementary PTA in your plans. Our fundraising, like everything else, has been disrupted by the pandemic, but we continue to provide support for students, staff and families.
This month, for example, we’re buying new document cameras for all teachers to help them more effectively manage their hybrid classrooms. We’re ready to restart our enrichment programs, like Schmahl Science, art and music, just as soon as San Jose Unified approves their return. And we’re prepared to support the school with whatever needs arise when we do finally return to campus.
Don’t forget to check whether your company will match your donation! Every year, corporate matching provides thousands of dollars for our Annual Giving campaign — we want to make sure we don’t miss out on those donations.
Thank you for considering a gift to the WGE PTA.
Julia Casto and Cyndi Kavanagh, Annual Giving Co-Chairs
