Welcome back! I hope the start of the year has been smooth and happy for your family. I'm writing with three quick messages regarding the PTA, which provides classroom enrichment like art, garden and Schmahl Science; pays for technology; and builds community at WGE:
Join. Give. Volunteer.
JOIN: If you haven't yet joined the PTA or renewed your membership, click here to do so now. And to make this seamless next year, why not choose to auto-renew? Membership is only $10, and it's an easy way to show your support for the PTA.
GIVE: While you're joining, you can also make your Annual Giving donation, all with one simple click. We recommend a gift of $300 per student, but welcome any amount. Don't forget to check whether your company will match your gift!
VOLUNTEER: If you're new or just would like to learn more about volunteer opportunities, mark your calendar for Volunteer Orientation Night, Sept. 3 at 6 p.m. (childcare available). To volunteer in the classroom, you will need to be fingerprinted and take a TB test. Learn about that here. If you have specific questions, please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Jaqi Erickson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, please let me, President Amy Kaiser, or another board member know if you have any questions or want to learn more about the PTA.
