2018 PTO Parent Survey

It is time again for the WME PTO parent survey. We need your input and feedback from this school year about our events and fundraising. Most importantly, we need your input on where we invests the money we raise. All responses are anonymous and we welcome all your thoughts and feedback. The information we receive helps guide us with our decisions for this year and next. Keep in mind that all events and programs that we are able to offer are dependent on the volunteers we have each year. Please click on the link below to take the survey – we would like all parents (moms AND dads) to please take the survey if possible. The survey will be open through May 11th for responses.

Drinks and treats will be served while you shop! We hope you can make it! Kendra Gives Back Flyer

We are looking for some new people to join our Fun Run, Book Fair, Wildcat Bazaar, Father Daughter Dance, Mother Son Event, Donation Requests, and Wildcat Garden committees! We are also looking for one or two people to be our DVD Coordinator next year. The more people we have on each committee, the less work for everyone involved!
