New this year, our VVE Cardinal Fund will collect money for our Booster Club to fund a year of support for amazing student and staff. In the past, we have asked for several collections from parents for their students. We have collected separately for teacher gifting, field trips, and more. We have used our family gatherings of Carnival, BINGO Night, and Auction Night as fundraisers to make money for the programs that the Booster Club supports throughout the year.
As an organization, your VVE Booster Club funds the following: fun run, School Store, teacher start up funds, staff gifting, field trips, in-school performances, library operations, nurse/PE supplies, science supplies, career day, staff development, Cardinal Fest, science/STEAM day, International Day, sock hop, cultural arts, staff appreciation, counselor needs, literacy program support, weekly readers/publications, Dollar Raffle Days, and MUCH, MUCH, MUCH MORE!!!! Your VVE Booster Club spends $250 per family annually to provide these meaningful experiences.
Instead of doing those individual, separate collections and having to charge large entry fees to events that are geared towards fun and family, we are going to be running our Carnival and BINGO Night at cost. That means that we are going to charge just enough to cover the cost of running the event for YOU. We are going to try our best to make these events as affordable as possible and still give you the best experience you can have!
We will still provide services for you, such as School Supply ordering and Spirit Wear offerings. But those, too, will be provided at no profit so that you can enjoy the benefit of convenience and community.
We have put on our website the 2017-2018 Budget. Please look and see what we are spending money on and why we need to collect the amount for which we are asking. With our new Cardinal Fund, we are working to collect money just once and asking for all-school participation so that we can maintain the high level of amazing activities and support for our students and staff that we have given in the past without passing on the high cost of events onto you all.
We all LOVE Valley View. We all LOVE our staff and our children. We all LOVE that we call this incredible community our second home.
This is why we are asking for your help. We are aiming for 100% participation from our VVE families and hope that we can count on your help. No amount is too small, and any amount you can give will help us provide our students and staff with experiences and support not received from the District. It’s the participation that truly counts.
Giving is just one simple click away. The link to donate to Cardinal Fund is located at the top of the page. Choose your desired level of giving (or create your own). You can even select to make monthly payments…
Thank you so much for your participation and show of support!
