My name is Jessica Neiderer and I will be taking over for Elly Hensman, coordinating Communications for the West Vincent PTA. We thank Elly for everything she has done to support the PTA and wish her family well in their next chapter.
The Walk is just over 2 weeks away and we are super excited for the big event. Please be sure to mail your postcards soon! Funds raised will help us buy new playground equipment. Last Tuesday we reported that thanks to our very generous sponsors and families we have already collected $12,000. If we are able to reach our first goal of $25,000, every student at WVE will be rewarded with a "night out" which includes a kid’s meal from Chick-fil-A, a bowling pass from Palace Bowling and a coupon for a free bundtlet from Nothing Bundt Cakes. If we reach our $30,000 goal, Mr. Smith will be slimed! Be sure to check out the PTA Facebook page for more news about our many amazing prizes! Also please see the extensive list below of all of our wonderful sponsors, we couldn't do it without them, THANK YOU!!
We encourage all kids to participate in the PTA Reading Incentive Program. Have your child read 20 min. a day and log that time on the appropriate monthly calendar located at https://www.westvincentpta.org/reading-incentive. At the end of the month (now) return it to their teacher and your reward will be delivered to them shortly!
