This back to school outdoor party will include a continued celebration of our new playground unit and a chance to socialize. ELC families will be able to connect and make new friends and at the same time mingle with the ELC staff ahead of the school year. Food trucks will also be available to add to the festivities!
Throughout the year, the PTA will host several character visits with special costumes. These beloved characters, such as Clifford the Dog and Pete the Cat, will visit each classroom at the ELC and provide each child with a small gift.
With the help of local businesses and amazing volunteers, the WSNPTA hosted the first ever "Family Game Night" during the 2016-17 school year. A large variety of children's games were available along with refreshments and snacks. The event was such a huge success and greatly appreciated by our families.
During the 2017-18 school year, we took this event to the next level by turning it into a STEM Night that was even more amazing!
For the 2018-19 school year, we hope to continue hosting a similar event in the Spring and welcome any ideas from you, our members!
Plans are in the works for our second annual family event in February 2019 to celebrate Valentine's Day. We are looking into the logistics and will share details during our general PTA meetings as they become available. If you have any ideas to help with the planning process, we encourage you to share them with us!
Each year the ELC and PTA jointly sponsor a field day for students during the school day filled with various physical activities and fun. The event occurs during the month of May. Details will be announced at a later date.
During the last week of school before winter break and the last week of school before summer break, students typically have a pajama party, watch a movie, enjoy snacks/refreshments and receive a small gift from the PTA. The Polar Bear Party occurs at the end of the school year and coincides with the pajama party. Each year is different, so we will keep you posted on the plans for the 2019 party!
PTA-sponsored events are activities directed by the PTA as a service to our students and families. These events are not categorized as fundraisers but may sometimes be supplemented with a fundraising activity. On this site, you will find a list of tentative events for this school year but more may be added as we progress through 2018-19.
