Volunteers from PTA help with parent school communications through our weekly eNews. PTA volunteers also coordinate PTA sponsored programs, and run social studies curriculum events for each grade level, as well as staff appreciation efforts throughout the school year.

Keeping Track of Volunteer Hours

Have you volunteered here at WCI this year or over the summer? It’s important to report your hours so that they may be compiled in this year’s report. State PTA compiles these hours and uses them in their advocacy efforts for schools and children. Please send an e-mail to the WCI PTA Historian Samantha Okazaki (historian@wcipta.org)  with your name, phone number, your child’s grade, the number of hours you volunteered, and in what capacity.

 

 

Local PTA Advocacy for Children and Youth

PTAs are responsible for taking action on local issues originating in school districts, cities, regions, or counties. Laws enacted by local, state and national bodies are primary sources of public policy. Securing adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth is one of the purposes of the organization. Therefore, PTA maintains an active legislation program. PTAs can and must participate actively in the process through which public policy decisions are made.

—Excerpted from the California State PTA Toolkit, Section 4.1

 
 
 BUDGET

 

The WCI PTA budget is presented by the PTA Executive Board for approval by the Association at the beginning of each school year.  Funds raised through membership fees, annual fund donations and spirit wear sales, are typically applied as follows:

  • Deliver quality communication between parents and teachers: eNews, Online School directory, website
  • Fund student programs like WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) New Student Orientation, Reflections Arts Contest, and Staff Appreciation events throughout the school year
  • Provide funding for books and supplies
  • Fund Parent Education topics and speakers
  • Provide funds for staff development and classroom technology
