Why Join the PTA
Did you know...
Wilburton PTA provides funds and support for many programs at school, including:
Festival of Culture
Gift and Craft Fair
Scholastic Book Fair
Although this year will look a little different, we have plenty of virtual events planned to keep us all connected!
Welcome Wilburton Elementary families!
What an unusual start to the year! We hope that everyone has been able to log on and get connected to their teachers and classes so far. Speaking of being connected, the PTA has shifted all focus to being connected as a community and providing student & staff support. We are committed to doing our part to make this year just as great, although different, as any other!
So what does being connected look like for the PTA?
It means virtual events to show school spirit, in lieu of gathering in person.
It means still having a yearbook, even if official school portraits aren’t taken. We are already getting creative with ideas to show all the innovative ways we are adapting to virtual learning! Yearbook appreciates ANY and ALL photos posted to our social media accounts to help tell the story of our virtual year.
It means getting exciting new spirit wear for your kids to show off on-screen to their classmates.
It means purchasing your annual PTA membership so you, as parents and staff, have a voice in what we do and how we spend the money we raise.
All of these things and more can help our students still feel a sense of belonging and like they are an important part of our community, virtual or otherwise!
Our second focus is on supporting our staff and students. We don’t know exactly what tools our staff will need all year to better connect with our kids and stay safe, but we want to make sure we can provide those tools when they do.
