The Whitehall PTA would like to invite you to join our 2018-2019 Parent Teacher Association. Our goal is to build strong community relationships while fostering positive interactions and providing our children with highly enriched learning environments. Our guiding principles for the 2018-2019 school year are the 3Cs- Care, Commit, and Celebrate and there’s no better way to kick off the school year then with your participation. Below is a brief outline of details about the Parent Teacher Association.
Membership participation in our Parent Teacher Association contributes to fulfilling the needs of Whitehall Elementary School. Your membership includes up to date knowledge of school events like school dances, dine out events, community sponsor participation, and much more! In addition, your participation is in your hands. You can volunteer AS LITTLE or AS MUCH as you'd like. While, the Parent Teacher Association does focus on increasing monetary contributions, that is not our only concern. We are well aware that is takes a village to raise a child... and without the active participation of our parents we limit our children's abilities. We need your voices, participation, volunteer service, and ideas.
Please review all of the information and feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you and thank you in advance!
