Thank you for making the first West Vincent Wildcat Walk-a-Thon a huge success!  As of Tuesday, we raised $30,655.85.  This money will fund several social and educational programs during the 2018-2019 school year.  Donations were accepted through Friday, so please check the PTA Facebook page on Tuesday, 10/24 for the final Tuesday Tally.  The top 3 individual fundraisers as well as the top 3 classes will be recognized.  Raffle prize winners will also be announced.  If you haven't seen the video of the Walk-a-Thon that Mrs. McDannell and her husband created, be sure to check it out at https://youtu.be/bm4FuGoR5G4.

We'd like to give a big Thank You to all of the dads that showed up on Thursday morning for the All Pro Dad Breakfast! Your engagement with your children (and your yummy donations) made this breakfast a wonderful success! See a few photos here.

Entries for the PTA Reflections Art Contest are due on November 15.  This year's theme is Within Reach. Students are judged on three categories for their entry: Interpretation of Theme, Artistic Merit/Creativity, and Mastery of Medium. All students must submit an entry form with their artwork that is in any of these categories: Visual Arts, Photography, Film Production, Dance Choreography, Literature, or Music Composition. To see an example of a primary (K-2) student entry in the Music Composition category that received an Award of Merit at the National PTA level, click here. I know many budding musicians in our school. Why not show off the talent from all of those music lessons?!  The explanation of what to submit can be found here.

Chick-fil-A Spirit Night
Join us for a Spirit Night to benefit WVES at the Chick-fil-A in Lionville on Oct. 26 between 5:00 - 7:30 pm!  A portion of sales from this event will benefit the WV PTA.  Eat in the restaurant or go through the drive-thru.  We will also have a prize wheel that you can spin to win a prize!

Monday is Day 3.
Have a great week!
