DON’T MISS OUT ON YOUR DRESS DOWN PASS!
AS A THANK YOU FROM THE PTA,
EVERY CHILD THAT GIVES IN THEIR PTA CONTRIBUTIONS, WILL RECEIVE A DRESS DOWN PASS
Dear WJPS Families,
Welcome back to WJPS! We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new families, returning families, teachers, and staff members to another exciting school year.
WJPS offers your children an excellent educational experience. The PTA works side by side with the staff of WJPS to support the needs of the school and enhance our children’s experience. This year’s PTA will be reaching out to you for your support, ideas, and participation. We cannot stress enough the importance of parent participation. With your help, we will continue to provide a wonderful educational experience for our children.
We are asking you to support our annual PTA Membership Drive Fundraiser with a donation of $25 per family. Funds raised by the membership drive support programs and activities for the children of WJPS. However, any size donation is meaningful and will allow us to further our children’s education. The first class to reach 100% of PTA dues will receive a pizza party.
Through our fundraising the PTA helps to enrich the children’s educational experiences. In addition, the PTA would like to contribute to numerous school events, such as graduation, carnival / mixers, school dances, assembly programs, grade specific events and senior events. As always, we would like to increase our funding goals to support additional events, and activities.
We would like to thank you in advance for your support and generous donations, and we look forward to working with you throughout the exciting school year.
HOW TO PAY DUES:
Make checks or money order out to WJPS PTA, put in an envelope and have your child bring it to the Main Office, room 334
