  • Wish night allows you the opportunity to contribute directly to your child's classroom.  You may purchase an item on the teacher's wish list or give a monetary contribution (no cash please) so that the teacher can purchase items.
  • In every classroom, the teachers will have outlined a "wish list" of items that they need to enhance their classroom for their students. 
  • Look for the envelope in each classroom where you may leave your donation. 
  • Make checks payable to Ensign PTA and include your teacher's name on the check. 
  • Wish night donations can be made up until March 15, 2016. 
  • 100% of your tax deductible donation will directly benefit your child's classroom. 
  • If you have any questions, please contact Noel Krueger at (949) 463-6635or
