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!
