2022-2023 PTA Committees
Consider joining any (or all) of our PTA committees by contacting the committee chairs for more information.
This committee manages two of our major fundraisers including the Parents Night Out and Spring Carnival. These events build community and raise money to support many of our initiatives and are a lot of fun for parents and families. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Twice a year (typically October and March) we hold a Little Shop of Stories book fair. Little Shop selects a collection of books for purchase at the WP library. Children and families have several opportunities to peruse the books during, before and after school with a portion of the sales going to the WP Library Fund. Volunteers are needed during the fair to help the students fill out wish lists, ring up sales, and set up/take down the fair. Contact: courtneysolliePTA@gmail.com
Diversity and Inclusion Committee
- Educate our community of adults and children on the heart behind matters of race and diversity
- Initiate previously unexplored and enhance existing conversations around acceptance and understanding
- Strengthen empathy between families through sharing of traditions
- Advocate for families and students adversely affected by incidents and concerns of inequity or discrimination

The garden will continue to thrive this fall! The Garden Committee plans to have a regular workday one evening per week. Day of the week TBD. Everyone is welcome, no garden experience needed. Just show up! The Garden Committee will harvest and bag garden produce to be delivered to WP staff. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Each year, the WP PTA provides grants to teachers and parents for school and classroom improvements or programs. The Grants Committee reviews and recommends the funding requests from WPES teachers, staff and families to enhance the Winnona Park educational mission and learning environment Historically, the grants committee has held a fall and spring application cycle to consider grant applications, and would then present recommendations to the PTA board for review. The Grants Committee supports innovation and meaningful educational endeavors within the WPES community. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Join your fellow Winnona Park family and friends for a fun run on the Winnona Park Field. The fun run starts with a group warmup that is followed by a "Jog-a-thon" style run for kids and adults! Contact: courtneysolliePTA@gmail.com

Read-a-thon is a school-wide fundraising event supporting our kids in developing a love of reading. Over the course of a week, students log minutes spent reading (or having someone read to them) and collect pledges from friends/family through personal event webpages. Read-a-thon is one of Winnona Park’s most important school fundraisers, supporting many PTA initiatives throughout the year.

Each spring our PTA hosts a SnoCone party out on the field along with our spring carnival. Will be fun for the whole family! Contact: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Walk and Roll/Safe Routes to School Committee
Every second Wednesday of the month Winnona Park families walk or roll (bike/scooter, etc.) to school as a fun way to increase activity in our students/parents day and help us feel better while decreasing car traffic and local pollution. There is coffee and music and opportunities to get to know other WPES parents/families/friends. Contact: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com
The Yearbook Committee is responsible for creating a book that captures the fun, exploration, and hard work our students, staff, and community put into WPES each year. The committee consists of the yearbook chair, the second grade tribute manager, and most importantly, volunteer photographers and photo contributions by parents throughout the school year.
