The Wellesley Middle School PTO is excited to work with you to support our students and teachers and to build our wonderful WMS community. We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our families - especially our new 6th grade families. We hope you will find the WMS PTO a great partner and a useful source of information during the school year. Here are a few ways you can help us start the year off strong.
Please consider sending in a contribution for our Annual Appeal: While Wellesley’s elementary schools generally host fundraising events (i.e. auctions, pumpkin fairs, etc.) WMS raises funds through a direct contribution appeal - a low-key and efficient fundraiser that does not require a time commitment. Our Annual Appeal is the only fundraiser you will encounter at WMS. Your contribution directly funds and/or enhances programs not covered by the general school budget. Some examples of how funds are used include:
Creative Arts and Sciences
Teacher grants and professional development
The average contribution is $125.00 per student, but any amount is greatly
appreciated. Donations can be made online via the Paypal link on our website: https://www.wmspto.org/contributions.htmlOR by check made payable to the WMS PTO and mail to: Wellesley Middle School PTO, PO Box 81426, Wellesley Hills, MA 02481 Make sure you are receiving news and reminders from the PTO: Our emailed newsletter is sent out every Sunday and offers information about PTO, middle school, and community-related events and activities. Make sure you are signed-up to receive the newsletter by updating your information through the PowerSchool Parent Portal by Friday, August 30th.
Get involved! Throughout the year we will be hosting PTO sponsored meetings for parents and caregivers. The full PTO calendar will be available on our website and posted in the weekly email newsletter. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.WMSPTO.org.
Join us onFriday, September 6th at 8:30-9:30am to “meet and greet” Principal Ito and WMS administrators at the Kingsbury entrance.
We hope you have a wonderful school year and thank you again for your generous support! The WMS PTO Board,
