Welcome and hello to new and returning WMS families
There is a PTO in middle school, and all parents/guardians and teachers are members.
At our monthly meetings with Principal Martin you will learn more about events, new programs and initiatives that are happening at the school. This is a great time to ask questions about general school-related topics. We hope you can join us for at least one meeting during the school year, and we promise to keep the meeting to an hour or less. Look for the date of our next meeting in the principal's announcements.
Over the past year we've tried to limit fundraising drives and focus on connecting parents with the Middle School. We hope to continue our efforts to build a stronger WMS community with your support - contributions are very much appreciated (and needed)! If you are making a contribution please check to see if your workplace has a matching gifts program. Checks can be made out to the WMS PTO and sent directly to the school office at 68 Waverley Ave.
The money we raise helps to pay for academic enrichment, defray the expenses of field trips, and fulfill extra classroom supply requests. On an annual basis, we support the Geography Bee, 8th grade graduation refreshments, teacher/staff appreciation luncheon and much more.
One of our biggest tasks as a PTO is to organize volunteers and events. When you volunteer at school events you get a better sense of where your student spends their day and you have an opportunity to get to know other parents.
If you can't make it to the meeting but would like to be on our e-mail list so you are aware of ongoing events and volunteer opportunities please send a note to Kristen at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not have access to the school database so please let us know if you want to hear from us.
