SCAVENGER HUNT INSTRUCTIONS

 

PLEASE read the instructions prior to making your pizza and starting your scavenger hunt!  

We have created 3 scavenger hunts.  The first one runs from 5:00pm-6:00pm.  The second one runs from 5:30pm-6:30pm.  The third one runs from 6:30pm-7:30pm.  Please only participate in one scavenger hunt.

 

The games are the same, but they have different start times to allow for families to do the hunt and make the pizzas at a time that is most convenient for them. You may begin your hunt anytime within the respective hour window that you choose to play, BUT the game will automatically close at the stop time.

 

Note that some tasks need to be completed prior to cooking the pizza.

2020 REFLECTIONS PROGRAM IS HAPPENING NOW!! 

 

National PTA's Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life. Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme.

This year’s theme, “I Matter Because…”, calls for their own unique interpretation through the arts. 

Reflections encourages students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.

Deadline for submissions is October 9th at 6pm!

WCEF 

We are very fortunate to live in a community that values public schools. Since 1983, the Walnut Creek Education Foundation (WCEF TK-12) has invested funds from parents and the community back into our schools to enhance education for all students. 

 

Though we are starting school in a distance learning environment, our students still depend on donations to WCEF to provide district-wide programs and salaries at all WCSD schools and Las Lomas High School. Our schools are facing the worst budgets in decades. WCEF is committed to remaining nimble as we continue to serve our students, staff and administrators this year and in years to come. 

 

 

 

Murwood relies on your donation to help WCEF raise $1.3 million this year to help offset the deficit, stabilize the district’s budget and preserve an enhanced education for your child, for this year and into the future. 

 

WCEF works closely with our districts, principals, and donors to support the needs of all 5,100 students. WCEF asks for $600 per student ($50 per month), but due to budget cuts and added expenses such as 1:1 technology, we recommend $800 per student

 

We understand family budgets vary; please give what you can. 

 

  1. ONLINE: Make a one-time or monthly gift at https://www.wcefk12.org/donate
  2. VENMO@wcefk12
  3. CHECK: Payable to WCEF, mail to:  P.O. BOX 186, WC, CA 94597
  4. STOCK: Make a gift of stock, or donate your car, by emailing contact@wcefk12.org

California’s shrinking education budget can affect your child through reduced access to the arts and science, fewer electives, reduced library hours, little to no additional math support, lack of counselors/support staff, and more. This doesn’t have to happen. Help deliver an enhanced education to our students. Donate to WCEF today.

 

Together, with the Murwood PTA, we can offer students an enhanced education and families a community that makes the education of your child, and every student, a priority.

 

EVERY STUDENT BENEFITS. EVERY DOLLAR MATTERS.

 

THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO FOR OUR DISTRICT AND SCHOOL IS

MAKE A DONATION TO WCEF. 

 

WCEF K-12 is a non-profit 501(c)(3) federal tax ID #94-2915151.
