In Kind Donation

 

 Dear Friend and Neighbor,

  The Plaza Vista Parent Teacher Association (PTA) plays a critical role in supporting underfunded enrichment programs for kindergarten through eighth grade students. It is a 100% volunteer organization that relies solely on the tax-deductible donations from local businesses like yours. Our amazing PTA strengthens community and provides resources for our school program in numerous ways including our annual carnival in May (please join us!), the Jog-a-thon, the annual membership drive, family nights (which have included a magic show, bowling, restaurant nights, a “drive-in” movie, bingo, and much more), guest speakers, the book fair, assemblies, bake sales, lunch-time activities and games, field trips, Red Ribbon Week, and more! Your donation helps PTA pay for music & art instruction, health clerk hours, educational assemblies, grants to teachers for classroom supplies and materials, P.E. equipment, and much more!  

The Mission Statement of Plaza Vista is: All staff through collaboration, shared leadership, and while engaging in intellectual risk-taking, will support every child. An unofficial but hallowed slogan here painted in the hallway is: We take care of this place, we take care of each other.  Please consider an in-kind donation to the Plaza Vista PTA. We reserve the right to use your contribution for an event or activity such as Carnival, Jog-a-thon, or Pledge Drive Raffle in which it will maximize the net proceeds for our school. Your in-kind donation helps Plaza Vista be the best school it can be.  

Please email me k@kathleen8.com to pick up or send in your donation along with the fair market value to: 

Plaza Vista PTA, 670 Paseo Westpark, Irvine, CA 92606  

On behalf of the over 900 Plaza Vista students and their families, we thank you! Sincerely,  

Plaza Vista PTA
