Weekly Wildcat – August 28

Wish Night 

       Thank you to those who filled out their Wish Night forms and were able to “grant” wishes to your classrooms! Our goal is 70% participation and we’re at 50%.
       Wish Night is different from No Sweat! No Sweat goes to the general PTA, while your Wish Night gift goes directly into your classroomdirectly impacting your child’s learning environment. Also, your contributions, including any overage, stay in the classroom.
       There are no classrooms that have reached their participation goal. Every dollar matters, so gift online at or drop off the form at the office.
