Weekly Wildcat – September 24

Wish Night

We’re bursting with excitement to share some incredible news! Five weeks in and Arroyo Vista has officially soared into the prestigious 50/50 club, and it’s all thanks to your amazing support. With over 50% participation and remarkable contributions of over $50,000 to just our classroom fund, we’ve already achieved so much.

But guess what? We’re not stopping there; the sky’s the limit! Did you know that our school’s participation goal for Wish Night is an ambitious 70%? Currently, we’re at a stellar 58%, and we’re determined to reach for the stars together.

Your support is what makes all the difference, and every dollar holds the potential to shape your child(ren)’s journey in the classroom and across our school grounds. Each donation directly impacts their experiences, creating treasured memories they’ll hold close to their hearts.

Are you ready to be part of this positive change? Head over to and contribute to your child(ren)’s classroom, the Principal’s Discretionary Fund, and School-Wide Programs. Remember, no contribution is ever too small – every bit counts!

Let’s continue to reach for the stars!
