Every year, the WP PTA awards grants to teachers who are interested in exploring new ways to teach and engage their students. This past fall, the first-grade team received a grant to help Denham Springs Elementary located in Livingston Parish Louisiana to rebuild their library after suffering a devastating flood in August. The PTA identified a local bookstore so we could maximize the money spent on books for the school, while also helping to support a small, local business in the area. First graders learned first-hand about supporting communities in need and how they can make an impact.
See the story in The Advocate on the gift.
Thank you WP teachers and staff for inspiring our kids!
The annual spring auction will take place at Color Wheel on Saturday, March 25th from 7-11pm. We will have more than 150 items to bid on while you enjoy great food, fun beverages and live music! Purchase your tickets and register today!
Join Winnona Park students and parents for a celebration of black history month. Back by popular demand, we start the evening off with a living museum where students will dress up as influential African Americans and parents will be able to “tour the museum.” Afterwards, there will be a guest speaker for parents in the media center while the kids some music & dancing.
Holiday spirit, charity, good will, gift giving can come in various forms. The Winnona Park PTA wants to help our community find ways to spread cheer and generosity this season without opening our wallets.
We have compiled a Calendar of Kindness to suggest simple acts that you can do with your kids during this season of giving. Take a look and see how many you can accomplish over the break. It’s sure to help open hearts and bring a smile to those around you.
If you feel like sharing your experiences on the WPES Community Facebook page, then use #WPESGives or send them to us at email@example.com.
We appreciate the many ways you give to our school. Have a wonderful holiday break with your families!
