  •

    The PTA has big news to share – for the first time ever, this year’s annual fundraising event on April 13th will be FREE TO ATTEND. That means no tickets to purchase! All you have to do is show up to this adults-only party and have a great time with new and old Willard friends. We hope that this change will encourage as many Willard parents as possible to come together to celebrate our school, support its initiatives, and forge new friendships over games, activities, drinks, and dancing. Our goal, in addition to raising much-needed PTA funds, is to create a more inclusive community event for all to enjoy.  #WillardTogether #WillardUnidos

     

    Along with casino games (new!), late night bites* from the Three-Legged Taco food truck (new!), and DJ Rick Aceves (a Willard parent) spinning tunes, we’ll feature a Wine Pull (new!), a wide array of Buy-In Parties, and our ever-popular online Silent Auction.

     

    We are asking families to make a direct donation to the Willard PTA in lieu of ticket sales this year--any amount is appreciated:

    The Willard Spring Fundraiser has historically been our single biggest fundraiser of the year, raising over 60% of our overall income. The money raised during this event allows us to support:

     

    • FREE Community-Building Events: Courageous Conversations series; Hispanic Heritage Night; Giving Thanks Celebration; African Diaspora Night; End-of-Year Picnic; Field Day; Pizza & Bingo Night
    • Curriculum-Based Programs: $125 Discretionary Fund for each teacher; Science Fair; School Garden; School Newspaper; Willard Bookstore; Cultural Arts; Field trips; Science enrichment; Reduced cost school supplies
    • Student Assistance and Scholarships: For before and after school activities, sports teams and camps; ESCCA; Willard Family Fund; Wise Owls
    • Special Projects: Purchase of Chromebooks; Library Grants and Updates; Ongoing Playground Improvements

     

    Our ability to succeed in meeting our goals and adhering to our mission depends on each one of us working together to make this fundraising effort a success.
