Penny Wars – 2 More Days to Help our Sister School!
1, 2, 3, 4! We declare a Penny War!

This week,  April 22-26 , each grade level at Walt Disney is competing in a Penny War! Put pennies in your grade's jar (near the library) to add to the total. Put silver coins and paper money in another grade's jar and that amount will be deducted from their total.

All funds will  benefit our Sister School,  Fremont Elementary in Antioch. The children attending FES are in great need of uniforms and school supplies for the upcoming school year. Last year, Walt Disney Families raised over $750 for this event and 5th grade won the prize. 

🏆 The winning grade level earns bragging rights, a most excellent trophy, and an extra recess. 🏆

DESEF Shining Star: Eric Pinkela
Each year the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation asks its affiliates to select a member of their school community to be honored as a Shining Star. 

This year, DESEF is proud to honor Eric Pinkela , a fellow WD parent and volunteer extraordinaire.  

Whether you know Eric from his time on the board of PTA, as a Boy Scout leader, or as the current Executive Vice President of DESEF, you know he is someone who can always be counted on to help out and to do so with a smile. 

We are grateful for the strong sense of community that Eric helps foster and are pleased to be able to recognize him as our Shining Star.
