We are very fortunate to have the Walnut Creek Education Foundation (WCEF) K-12 and the Buena Vista PTA to help support Buena Vista’s students, teachers, and staff. Together, they bridge the gap between federal and state funding and the true cost of high-quality, well-rounded education. WCEF provides vital academic and enrichment programs such as science, arts, music, and PE. BV PTA focuses on improving students learning experiences by funding teacher and classroom supplies, technology, library, education programs, school improvement and safety, community events, and more.
In order to keep these programs and services, we are hoping that parents give BOTH to WCEF K-12 and Buena Vista PTA. The recommended donations to meet 2018-19 goals are $600 per child to WCEF K-12 and $150 per child to BV PTA. However, more important is a strong community coming together to give what we can. After all, all donations regardless of amount, add up to make a difference for our kids.
