West Valley Parent Teacher Organization
The WVPTO (West Valley Parent Teacher Organization) is comprised of parents/caregivers, teachers, and staff of West Valley Elementary School. Working together, we strive to enrich the education of students at our school. The WVPTO provides funding for enrichment programs and support staff personnel that are not funded by the State of California or the Cupertino Union School District. We are able to provide these programs and additional staffing through our fundraising efforts. Everyone’s participation in the WVPTO (whether being on the board, attending meetings, volunteering, or donating money) is critical to our success and directly benefits our students and school.
Who can participate in the WVPTO?
The WVPTO is open to all parents/caregivers, teachers, and staff of West Valley Elementary School. There are no membership fees or forms to complete.
