What We Do
- Advise - The WBLAS Early Childhood PTA advises the program on a variety of issues affecting parents of young children, including policy, fees, programming, how money is spent, and what events are important to families.
- Sponsor Events - The WBL Early Childhood PTA sponsors a variety of events. Included in these are: Meet the Teacher, Fall & Spring Family Events, Costume Party, Pasta Feed, Spring Fling at Tamarack.
- Community Outreach - The Outreach Committee informs families in the community about our program. They organize a Coat Drive to collect outdoor winter clothing to families in need. PTA also organizes the Giving Tree that provides Holiday gifts for families that might not otherwise receive any.
- Raise Funds - Each year, the WBLAS Early Childhood PTA manages fundraisers and determines where to allocate the monies collected. We organize a Fall Fundraiser and a Spring Fundraiser. PTA funds sponsor events for families with young children, provide supplementary materials for early learner classrooms, supplement student activities, provide scholarships and much more!
