The Willis PTO is hosting an “eat-out” afternoon/evening on Thursday, February 6th at Panda Express. The hours of this fundraiser are from 10:00 AM – 9:30 PM. You can see the linked flier for more information. In addition, our PTO still has vouchers available for Harkin’s Cups. The vouchers are $6.75 each and will be on sale while supplies last. Here is a link to an order form that can be dropped off in the Willis office.
CEF Raffle Tickets
Each year the Chandler Education Foundation sells raffle tickets ($20 each) for the chance to win your choice of a new car or $20,000 in cash. The money earned is returned to schools and students in the form of grants and scholarships (you can read more on the CEF web page).
Tickets are available for purchase in the Willis office, or you can buy them online. If you do make your purchase online, please indicate Willis as the designee. Thank you!
Support WJHS with a Tax Credit Donation
Please consider supporting Willis Junior High School through the Arizona Public School Tax Credit program. Tax credit support is a critical supplement to our budget and is truly a substantial need for our school. These funds are used to support a wide variety of extracurricular activities and events for our students. This letter from Mr. Delp includes details about the Arizona Tax Credit program and how to make a contribution. Please share this information with others who might be willing to lend financial support to Willis. Thank you!
