Welcome Letter from the PTA President

A letter from the President:

Happy Fall!!!

Welcome to a new year of school and a new year of PTA.  As you start the year, remember that our focus is children; the children in your home, the children in our school and the children in our community. 

If this is your first year at Wanaque School, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to each of you.  If you are a "seasoned" Wanaque family, I know that you are as excited as we are to be starting the school year up again. 

As I embark on my second term as your PTA President, I am looking forward to continuing the working partnership we have established with the Board of Education, Administration, our amazing Teachers and our invaluable Staff to provide an excellent learning experience for our children. 

I encourage each and every one of you to become a part of our team.  The number one reason to join the PTA is to benefit the children.  In doing so, you also help us.  But there are many more advantages:

By becoming a PTA member, you'll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.

* By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences and personal confidence. It's an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use, for a good cause.

* By getting involved, you'll be part of the solution, helping to make positive change.

* PTA functions provide opportunities to meet other parents and teachers.

* The PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, attend the PTA Association meetings throughout the year to make suggestions, and provide your input.

Some things that we can use some help with this year are fundraising.  We spend a lot of money on the programs and events that enhance our children's learning experience.  As we continue from year to year, we like to add more.  Yet in doing so, we need more funds to allow for these programs.  If you have any ideas or would like to help in any way, please contact me. 

During the past two years, we have been very successful. The WSPTA has not only been able to provide the children with wonderful and enriching programs but also contributed to our school. Thanks to all your dedication and hard work, the PTA has donated to our school; the buddy bench, new microphone stands, a new podium for assemblies and programs, a new projection screen and a brand new stereo system! We are grateful we can provide so many needed luxuries and couldn't have done it without all your help!  We ask that you continue to support our PTA and help us continue in our success. 

"Every child's potential is a reality..."

Thank you and have a great year!!!

Sincerely,

Leane Tully

Wanaque PTA President
