2019-2020 Co-President's Letter

Dear Wilburton Parents,

Your new 2019-2020 PTA Board members have been working hard to create a united community where we can provide information and resources for all the families at Wilburton.

What is the PTA?

PTA stands for ​P​arent ​T​eacher A​ssociation and is a nonprofit organization comprised of an all-volunteer group with intentions​ to foster parental participation in a school setting​. Wilburton PTA supports our local students by promoting an environment that encourages a sense of community, personal and academic growth, safety, positive values, and open communication.

What do we do?

Wilburton PTA organizes parent volunteers for efforts including but not limited to fundraising in pursuit of minimizing funding gaps to offer enrichment programs while building our community. During the current school year, examples of what the PTA does would be to mention how we build community with our Culture of Festival event, plans to assist with Book Fairs, organize for math and STEM based programs, and encourage our community to dine-in as a fundraiser event at local participating restaurants for a percentage of sales donated.

Why should I join?

  • Provide critical funds to support teachers and students at Wilburton Elementary. 97% of PTA funds raised go directly to help teachers and students.
  • Send a message to funders & corporate donors that Wilburton has an involved parent base. This is a key factor they consider when deciding which schools to support.
  • Connect with other parents & families. Your involvement in the PTA will provide you with valuable connections to help your child succeed in school.
  • Additional benefits of joining. Discounts at Great Wolf Lodge, Wild Waves, Avis & Budget Car Rentals, and much more!

Let’s partner up to be the collective voice for all our children at Wilburton.

I volunteer because I want to be involved with what our school is doing, have some say in the outcome but most importantly spend time with my daughter and the Wilburton community. Not only is it fun but I can commit whatever time I can and not feel pressured to do more!
