Why join the PTO?

100% of your donation goes into our school! During the 2020-2021 school year, the PTO was able to provide online learning programs such as IXL, which every grade level uses. The costs to purchase these classroom resources total $6,500. In addition, the PTO spent approximately $6,000 to provide cameras to teachers to support online learning. Furthermore, we support our teachers by purchasing additional cleaning items for their classrooms. This is a portion of what the PTO provides throughout the year in addition to the hundreds of volunteer hours.
 
For the 2021-2022 school year the PTO is looking to help our school with outdoor school improvements, educational resources and technological advances that will benefit the education of our students. The PTO will continue to provide IXL for students to access at home and in school.

Membership Matters!

1. The PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization) is a non-profit organization that supports the faculty, students and families of WCES.  Joining the PTO doesn’t mean you will be joining the board or committing to volunteering. By paying your membership, you will provide financial support for PTO funded activities. It also gives you the option to vote on important decisions.

 

2. The PTO is for everyone!  Our volunteers are mothers, fathers and those who fill those roles.  We have a wide range of volunteers who:  stay-at-home; work part-time to full-time; have little ones at home, preschoolers, high schoolers and/or college students; are continuing their own education; and more. We welcome help from the families of our children at our various events, classroom activities, committees and fundraisers throughout the year.

 

3. Joining the PTO does not mean you are obligated to spend all your free time with us.  You can help out as much or as little as you like.  Even helping at just one event per year benefits the school immensely. You can help out at the school, or at home, whatever suits your schedule. Visit our volunteer page to view current volunteer needs.
