Teacher Feature 

Thank you to the Wildcat community for your donations towards Wish Night! Our teachers and staff have received their totals. For the classrooms that did not hit their goals, we will continue to spread the word since every dollar makes a direct impact to enhance your child’s educational experiences!
As your teachers share what’s made possible in the classroom, thanks to your gifts in their weekly newsletters, I will best serve you by highlighting Wish Night in our weekly segment, Teacher Feature. You’ve met our TK/K and first grade teachers. This week, meet our second grade teachers!
Keep in mind Wish Night happens all year, so you can continue to contribute online at ptav.org/wish-night or mail a check along with your donation form to: Arroyo Vista, Attn: Wish Night, 335 El Centro St.

Thanks!
