Won’t you Be the Light?
The loose change we raise helps to make a difference to those in need. From school supplies, to Thanksgiving dinner, we like to be able to give back to our community and your loose change can help us do just that. Beginning August 23rd each classroom is collecting change for our Be the Light fund. All proceeds go to local families in need.
Thanks for your support!
Dear Wesley Chapel Elementary Parents!
We are excited to kick off the 2017/18 school year and having you as part of it! Thank you for stopping by the PTA table at Meet the Teacher Day, it was great meeting you!
We would like to invite you to come and join us for our first meeting of the year on 8/25/17 at 6 p.m. in the Cafeteria. We will have a short meeting, followed by some Bingo-fun!
During the meeting, we will give you an overview of last years’ accomplishments, vote on this years’ budget, and lay out the PTAs’ goals for the new school year. You will have the opportunity to share your ideas and suggestions with us and hear about the different ways you can be involved.
We are in the process of creating a Fall Festival committee to better serve our families. If you’d like to be a part of this, please send us a quick note. And if you have any questions, you can always reach us at email@example.com.
