Hello Wilcoxson Families!
On behalf of the Wilcoxson PTA, we would like to welcome everyone back to school! We extend an extra warm welcome to those that are new to Wilcoxson. We look forward to meeting you!
For the 2017/2018 school year, we are proud to serve as your PTA board members for a second year. We are:
The Wilcoxson PTA is a very active, volunteer-based organization that supports the school, teachers and our children. Our PTA has three main purposes:
1. Funding – With your help we raise funds to meet the needs of our teachers and staff and enrich the learning experience for the children. Last year we gave over $10,000 back to the school and the students and we were able to fulfill the majority of teacher requests of needed equipment and resources.
2. Support – We act as a liaison between the school administration, town Board of Education, town-wide PTA, state-wide PTA, National PTA and the PTA members. We circulate information regarding education, town updates and events.
3. Community – Through our volunteer-run events, meetings and interactions, we are building on the wonderful school community that brings everyone together, encourages mutual support and aids the growth of our children.
We have exciting plans for the upcoming school year and are eager to get started! Returning favorite events include Trunk-or-Treat, the Book Fair, the Variety Show and the Family Picnic.
But we need your help!
We encourage all parents and guardians to join the PTA. It is a great way to get involved in your child’s school experience and there are many different ways you can contribute. Whether it is your time, knowledge, or resources, it all makes a difference. The PTA depends on volunteers and we would love your help. Your membership and small $10 fee is greatly appreciated, and will not only benefit your child, but every child through the National PTA network.
By volunteering with the PTA, you will get to interact with the kids, meet other parents, and accomplish things that truly make a difference. What better way to show our kids how important school is than by showing up. Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education have better grades and fewer discipline problems. We are confidentthat the time you give to the PTA and the school will be worth your while-and fun!
If you have any questions, ideas or thoughts, please feel free to contact us.
We hope to see you at our first meeting, Monday, Sept 11 at 6:30pm in the Wilcoxson Library.
Sarah Maseto and Sara North
