Weekly Wildcat – August 21

Wish Night 

Back to School Night was a huge success!! We hope you enjoyed seeing what your child will be learning and experiencing this year, and appreciate any support you are able to offer their teacher. You can grant wishes any time throughout the year, but donating early allows our teachers to budget and plan accordingly. If your company offers corporate matching, you can DOUBLE your wish-granting! Thanks again for your support!

Donate online at, or mail a check and your donation form to: Arroyo Vista, Attn: Wish Night, 335 El Centro St.
