About the PTA

Our Mission

The mission of the Wakefield PTA is to:

  • Support and speak on behalf of children and youth in the schools and before governmental agencies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children.
  • Assist parents in developing skills they need to raise and protect their children.
  • Encourage parent and public involvement in the schools of this nation.

    A Letter from the President

On behalf of the Wakefield Elementary School Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), I am thrilled to extend a warm welcome to both returning and new families joining our vibrant school community.

Our PTA is a dedicated group of parents, teachers, and staff working together to enhance the educational experience of our students. We believe that a strong partnership between home and school is essential for the success and well-being of our children. As members of the PTA, you play a crucial role in building that bridge and creating a supportive and enriching environment for all.

Throughout the year, the PTA organizes a variety of events, programs, and initiatives aimed at fostering a sense of community, supporting our teachers, and providing resources that contribute to the overall success of our school. These activities range from fundraising events that support important educational programs to family-friendly gatherings that celebrate the diverse tapestry of our school community.

We invite and encourage you to get involved in any way that fits your schedule and interests. Whether you can spare a few hours to volunteer at an event, share your skills, or simply attend our meetings to stay informed, your participation makes a significant impact.

If you have any questions, ideas, or suggestions, please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected]. Your input is invaluable, and we are eager to collaborate with you to make this school year the best one yet!

Here’s to a year of growth, learning, and building wonderful memories together. Thank you for being an essential part of our school community.
