WVES PTA Communications 10/7/2018

THANKS FOR VOTING Thanks to everyone who voted on the fate of Mr. Smith at the Wildcat Walk-a-Thon.  Votes were tallied and his fate is:  COVERED IN PIES!  If we reach our stretch goal of $27,500, one teacher from every grade and the Wildcat will each be given a pie to throw at Mr. Smith.  He will be covered in messy pies and we are certain the kids and teachers will love it!  

As you know, money raised from the Walk-a-Thon will fund programs like assemblies, field trips, a visit from an Author, family events, technology and books for classes, after-school programs and much, much more!  But there are some other benefits to raising money - fabulous prizes!  Here is a list of what kids and classes can earn by raising money for the Walk-a-Thon this year:

  • If we reach our $20,000 goal - every student will be given a free pass to Bowling Palace, a coupon for a free cone or cookie at Chick-fil-A, and a soft pretzel at an upcoming lunch.

  • If we reach our stretch goal of $27,500 - one teacher from each grade and the Wildcat will get to throw pies at Mr. Smith!

  • The top earner from each grade on Walk day will help carry the Walk-a-Thon banner and lead our walk. 

  • The top individual earner will get a $250 gift card to Target.

  • The second highest earner will get a "Make it, Bake it, Take it" party for 8 from The Crafty Chef Academy.

  • The third highest earner will get a free week of camp at Miss Betty's Day camp (plus a guest pass). 

  • The top-earning class will get a lunch catered by Chick-fil-A, delivered by the cow and 15 min extra recess.

  • The second-place class will get a pizza party from Carmine's.

  • The third-place class will get a tin of pretzels from the Unique Pretzel bakery for each student.

  • Raffle Prizes including an American Girl Doll, Tickets to the Turkey Hill Experience, a WV Spiritwear package, a Chick-fil-A prize pack including dinner for 4, gift cards to Applebee's, Liberty Union, Monkey Fish Toys, Barnes & Noble, Lani Ice, Primo Hoagies, Scholastic dollars good at our WV book fairs, and more.  Note:  Every child will be entered into our raffle but for every $20 a child raises, they will earn an additional entry for our raffle prizes.  

There are only 10 days until the Wildcat Walk-a-Thon and the tally as of Tuesday was about $11,000 so we have much more to raise to reach our goal!  Donations can be made at www.westvincentpta.org.

On Wednesday, October 10 students from West Vincent Elementary can meet at the parking lot of Henrietta Hankin Library (215 Windgate Dr, Chester Springs) to walk to school. Parents are welcome to walk too as we take part in National Walk to School Day.  Meet at the library at 7:45 am for a photo and we will leave around 8:00 am.

Be sure to have your creative little ones working on an entry for the Reflections Art Contest! The theme is "Heroes Around Me" and entries can be turned in for Literature, Visual Arts, Music Composition, Film Production, Dance Choreography, and Photography. Entries may be turned in at the front office at any time until November 12. Please visit the website for more information.
