WYWLA WEEKLY UPDATE

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2021

Thank You, WYWLA PTSA!

Thank you for providing breakfast for the staff on Thursday. The glazed croissants, fruit, and coffee were delicious! We appreciate all you do to make us feel special. A special thank you to Mrs. Ferree and Mrs. Asselin for organizing the breakfast.

OWL-A-THON IS BACK!!!

On September 20, the PTSA will kick off their Owl-a-thon fundraiser. This is a no-bake, no-sell, no-fuss fundraiser, and the proceeds will help the PTSA provide even more enrichment and support to our school community.


The plan this year is to use the funds to install hands-free water bottle fillers in various locations throughout school, and to also bring in artists and performers to the students. Any additional funds will go directly to student/teacher support.


The goal is to raise $5,000 from 9/20 – 10/8!!! Last year, we raised $4,600, and we are hoping to top that with your generosity. We are asking anyone who is able to donate to please contribute, as any contribution goes a long way. Please share with anyone you think may be interested in helping our amazing school.


Be on the lookout for more information. All donations are welcome and truly appreciated!
