Washington Wildcat Pride – September 23, 2016

Washington Wildcat Pride!!!!

Thank you to the 33% who have come forward to support your children’s educational needs.

This money goes to good use for items that we are currently using, such as;

– A comprehensive and engaging PE Program. Without parent support, we would not be able to provide all students with a standard-based Physical Education Program. Go Coach V!

– Teacher Assistants, Curriculum Specialists – These Teacher Assistants are the # 1 request from teachers when we ask them how we can help.  Your PRIDE contributions pay for these valuable support staff.

– Field Trips – Our students’ horizons are broadened by access to field trips that the school simply can’t afford to pay for. Your Pride contribution ensures that our students have the opportunity for enriching field trips.

These few items total approximately $250,000. If we do not raise the necessary donations, we will not be able to continue these Parent Funded services.

The PTO does not want to ask you or the teachers, “which services should we eliminate next year?”

Every dollar counts!  Many families sign up for monthly and weekly donations at $5 or $20 each donation.

To date we have raised $100, 581 during our Pride campaign. With your help we can reach our goal of 165K. Our Pride campaign ends next Friday. Donate today.

 Promesa Washington de los gatos monteses!!!!

Gracias por el 33% quienes han apoyado a las necesidades educacionales de los estudiantes.

Este dinero va ir para un buen uso que nosotros estamos usando actualmente, como;
– Un comprensible e interesante Programa de PE. Sin el apoyo de los padres , no podríamos ofrecer este a todos los estudiantes – no podríamos tener un programa de Educación Física. Vamos Coach V!

– Asistentes de Maestros, Especialistas de currículo– estos asistentes son el # 1 de la lista de deseos de los maestros. Su contribución de Promesa paga por estos invaluables apoyos para nuestro personal.

– Paseos – los horizontes de nuestros estudiantes han sido engrandecidos por el acceso a los paseos que la escuela simplemente no puede pagar. Su contribución de promesa asegura la oportunidad para obtener estos paseos de enriquecimientos para nuestros estudiantes.

Estos programas son un total de $250,000. Si nosotros no recaudamos las donaciones necesarias, nosotros no vamos a poder continuar con estos servicios (sin el recaudo de los padres)

El PTO no quiere pedirle a los maestros o a ustedes, “ cuales servicios deberían eliminar el próximo ano escolar”

Cada dollar cuenta! Muchas familias se registraron para donar mensualmente y/ o semanalmente de $5 o $20 cada donacion.

Hasta la fecha nosotros hemos recaudado $100, 581 durante la campana. Consu ayuda nosotros podemos alcanzar nuestra meta de 165K. Nuestra campana de recaudo de “Promesa” termina este viernes. Done hoy.
