YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A PTA MEMBER TO JOIN IN THE MEETING,

BUT DO NEED TO BE A MEMBER TO VOTE!

*Membership renewal starts July 1st

Topics Discussed: Golden Acorn Nominations Award Announced, New PTA Board and Committee Lead Election, 5th Grade Planning, Bellingham Council Information, End of Year and Summer Planning Events

Can you imagine what Wade King would be like if we didn't have a PTA? What would that mean? Here are some major things that would NOT be supported:

  • International Baccalaureate Program

  • Field Trips

  • After School Programs, Activities, and Events

  • School Garden

  • Participating in the Bellingham School District Equity Fund

In order to legally have a PTA, specific positions will need to be filled! These positions include: president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer. Having more then one person per position makes it easier to manage when people are busy! There are many different roles that individuals can do in the PTA no matter how much time you are able to contribute! Ready to sign up? Check out the 2022-2023 PTA Board Nomination link below! If you have additional questions please reach out to adita@wadekingpta.org

*******IMPORTANT******

If you are considering becoming a board member, please make sure that you are a current PTA member at least 2 weeks before the election!

What does it mean to be a PTA member?

  • You may only be able to become a member (that's ok!)

    • We need a minimum number of members to even have a PTA so your membership matters!

    • It doesn't mean you have to help out at all, you can just be a member!

    • ANYONE and EVERYONE can join! Did you know that you don't even have to be affiliated with the school in order to join the WK PTA? That's right! Your friend in Nepal is welcome or your cousin in New York City! Cool, right?

  • You help make an impact on how money is spent to help the school!

    • Members review and approve the PTA budget

  • It might mean you're able to volunteer your time to help out at the school or from home!
