Peace & Pie - January 23rd, 6:30pm
How to break away from samenessIt is so easy to gravitate to people who are just like you. Value what you value. Eat what you eat. Talk like you talk. Vote like you vote. We all do it BUT is it beneficial to us as a community? Join us and bring your favorite “pie” as we discuss how to break out of our bubbles and widen our relationships all while enjoying a meal together! It’s going to be a great night! RSVP using the link below. Before the event please be sure to watch the video linked below as well!

What We DoThe PTA works to enhance the educational experience of all WPES students by supporting teachers and staff, organizing fundraisers for items not covered by the school budget, and planning and hosting community-building events. Our main fundraising events are the Read-a-Thon, Jingle Jog/Holiday Tree & Candle Sale, and the Spring Auction. Through our fundraising efforts, we support many offerings and initiatives including classroom libraries, teacher and parent grants, field trips and guest speakers for all students, facility enhancements, and various community-building events.
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.
Winnona Park PTA would like to thank all of our very generous Sponsors for their contributions!
