Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! The PTO has already been planning, in conjunction with Principal Mark Ito, to make the upcoming school year the best it can be. Unlike the elementary schools WMS does not have any fundraising events other than this annual appeal for PTO donations. These donations augment the excellent education program and support teachers and staff as they challenge and engage our students’ everyday. It’s easy - instead of volunteering/attending that school fair all you have to do is write a check or link to paypal!.
To donate online, please click on the image above. Or a check payable to WMS PTO and left in the WMS front office.
Your PTO dollars support many activities that simply aren’t funded by the current budget. Examples of such activities include:
Creative Arts & Sciences The PTO funds an extensive program of speakers, performances and workshops across all grades and core subjects at WMS.
Teacher, Staff & Guidance Support The PTO purchases a common read each year for all staff. We also fund a teacher grant program administered by Principal Ito, to supply smaller teacher requests.
WMS Community PTO funds are crucial for teacher hospitality and community projects. Funds also support community building events among students (Mini Marathon, Turkey Promenade), culminating in year-end celebrations for each grade.
Please support our students and our faculty today with your Annual PTO donations.
Thank you for helping to make a difference for our school. We can’t do this without you! Lisa Collins & Chris Norcross WMS PTO Co-Presidents
