There is an old volunteering expression that says: “If you are feeling disconnected from what is taking place, you probably are.”
In other words, volunteers know that the key to changing the world around you is to get involved and stay involved. Your children deserve the very best- you. The child you serve may be your own!
Get Involved- Stay Involved- It’s the best way to know what is happening in your child’s education.
Every family is invited to join the Parent Teacher Organization. Throughout the year, the PTO supports many activities for our children. Some activities include the School-wide carnival, Reindeer Games, movie night, and the Scholastic Book Fair. Your vote, and more importantly to the community in which we serve- your model of good citizenship, counts. You set the example for our students to see, respect and follow.
The Student Governance Council is a great way to serve and stay on top of any changes or events that happen at the district, school or even classroom level. In the SGC, your active participation helps our students appreciate and understand how to problem solve, share responsibilities, collaborate on ideas, and work on challenges that are larger than any one person.
Don’t forget the basics: Families are still encouraged to collect Box Tops and Campbell’s labels. These programs bring needed funding and supplies to the classrooms. Please contact the office for more information and stay tuned to our website to find even more opportunities to help and to serve.
Reduce/ Reuse/ Recycle- Our Juice Pouch Recycle Initiative has returned for yet another year. Juice pouch renewal is a movement to reclaim the product as a renewable resource for a wide variety of post-consumer recycled products. Wallets, shopping totes, purses, sports bottles, lunchboxes, and a host of other creative products can tap into this valuable resource. Remind your son or daughter to turn in their used juice pouch right in the lunchroom. Thank you for supporting our planet and for helping your child understand their role in recycling!
All volunteers must fill out our application and go through the process of approval. Please stop by the front office on your next visit to Walt Whitman and find out how you can get involved and stay involved.
Thank you to our many volunteers for stepping forward to make Walt Whitman one of the best schools in MPS! Go Wildcats!
