There is no doubt that COVID-19 has rocked our worlds this year, and has seriously cramped our style in more ways than one! Unfortunately, that means the PTO is limited in the types of fun events and activities that we can plan for our students and staff - significantly impacting our fundraising.
The PTO has worked really hard to come up with some ways to still make the school year fun and interesting for our staff and students, BUT we will need YOUR help to make these things possible. Below you will find a list of ways that you can contribute to our to make this year as memorable as ever.
Are you thankful for all the amazing work our Willow Creek staff has done to keep our kids learning? Whether your kids are back face to face or learning virtually, there is no denying that our teachers and staff are the very BEST!
In years past the PTO has enjoyed showing their appreciation to the Willow Creek Staff with monthly events or gifts. Teacher Appreciation events have ranged from providing breakfast or lunch, to a sweet snack or drink delivery, or a replenishment of much needed supplies for their classrooms. We may send them home with a gift card or special treat to share with their families, or have a fun game for them to play for prizes.
These events are made possible by the generosity of the Willow Creek families, who have always gone above and beyond with donations of soup, stews, salad fixings, desserts, drinks, and even paper goods! Due to the new rules of COVID and in an effort to keep our teachers as safe as possible, our events have to look a little different this year.
But never fear – you can still help and show those teachers and staff some love! Please consider making a monetary donation to our Teacher Appreciation fund. Each month when we plan our event, we will include a special note of thanks with the names of all the families who contributed that month, and helped make the event a success.
Teacher Appreciation Donations may be made in $10, $25, $50 and $100. Donations of $200 or more will get signage recognition in the teacher's lounge, and a thank you in the Wildcat Newsletter, PTO Facebook page and website. Donations can be made in our store at willowcreekpto.com/shop
If you would prefer to make a donation with a check, Please download and print the sponsorship form at the bottom of this page. Checks and forms can be mailed to ADDRESS
Just like everything else, Recess looks a whole lot different this year! Students must stay with their class, and each day they rotate to a different zone on the playground to play in.
We want the students to have as much variety in their day as possible, and we certainly do not want to limit how they play at Recess! We would like to provide each grade level with a fully stocked recess cart, full of jump ropes, balls, sidewalk chalk, hula hoops, and other equipment to keep them playing!
These items can be purchased/donated in a variety of ways
1) Look up our Amazon Wish List. Items can be purchased through Amazon and delivered directly to the school. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2DHUK0PC9KAIV?ref_=wl_share

In an effort to provide a more sanitary way for our students to stay hydrated, the PTO would like to install Water Bottle Filling Stations throughout the school.
These Water Stations will be placed in each grade level hallway, near recess area, or next to other common areas to enable students to refill their water bottles throughout the day.
Water Station sponsors will be recognized with a plaque installed next to their water station. Sponsorship is limited to one sponsor per station.

The PTO helps to fund 3 classroom parties during the year for our students – Holiday party (Dec), Valentines (Feb) and End of Year (May/June)
