- On behalf of the Winnona Park PTA, we are excited to welcome you to the 2021-22 school year! We hope the WP PTA can assist our teachers and students to create a rich community of learning. As the first day of school approaches, there are several resources for you to use to stay informed regarding upcoming PTA initiatives.
Join the PTA!
Membership is $10 per person/$20 per household and you can join by going to the online store. Your membership dues ensure financial support for PTA initiatives like parent and teacher grants, diversity & inclusion events, and welcome gifts for new kindergartners.
PTA Website and Facebook
Also check out our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/winnonapark) for information about spirit wear, calendar, updates and a searchable directory to locate new friends. The website also provides quick links to become a PTA member and/or volunteer for committees.
Throughout the year, there are many volunteer opportunities that fit a variety of schedules, including serving as event chairs or volunteers, room parents, or by attending events and building community at WPES. You can sign up to volunteer for any of these events via our website or by contacting the event/program chair or filling out this quick form.
Traditionally, the PTA has hosted 3 major fundraising events and several community building and diversity events. Our three major fundraising events are:
- Read-a-Thon (October) generates great enthusiasm around books and reading and helps raise money to support our classroom libraries and teacher grants.
- Fun Run and Holiday Tree & Candle Sale (Dec. 5) the fun run for kids and adults is followed by a Fraser fir and Hanukkah candle sale helps to raise money to support social events and teacher stipends.
- Spring Auction (March 11) offers parents the opportunity to enjoy a night out while mingling with fellow parents and bidding on amazing silent and live auction items.
Thank you and welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!
|Take a look at last year’s WPES Impact Report for a quick snapshot of just some of the ways the generous support of our PTA activities helped us to build a better school and community in 2020-2021. (coming soon).|
Winnona Park definitely rocks!
Who We AreThe Winnona Park PTA includes families and teachers affiliated with Winnona Park Elementary School, working together to build community through school events, committees, and initiatives. We elect a Board made up of WPES parents, along with our Principal, Ruth Scott, and several teacher representatives. The Board meets once a month to discuss upcoming events, goals, needs, and concerns raised in the WP community.
If you’d like to attend a PTA Board meeting to bring up an idea or a fundraising opportunity, please contact the PTA Board.
