Parent & Teacher Association (PTA)

Why is PTA Important?
We're glad you asked! The PTA at Willmore Elementary, at its core, strives to better the lives of ALL children at our school. We help fund important things like Meet the Masters™,  5th Grade Science Camp, library book replacements, headphones for upper grade testing, planners for upper grades, field trips for all TK-5th grade students, fun school assemblies, AR parties, reclassification celebrations, Field Day, and MORE! We believe in making our school feel like a community and building life-long friendships not only between students, but parents. PTA helps supplement your child's education by providing volunteer-run, optional after-school programs like Lego Club (taught by our PTA Volunteers) and the Garden Committee.
 
Membership dues are $8 per adult (covers all your students) and extra donations are greatly appreciated. We are a 501 3(c) non-profit and any donation can be tax deductible for you; simply request a receipt from us for your records.
