PTO News 📢

The PTO Needs You!

  • Treasurer: Manages the bank account and finances. Works closely with the WDMCS Foundation for tax reporting.

Indoor Recess Toy and Game Collection

The weather is cold and wet. Our students are frequently having indoor recess and some of our classrooms are in need of replacement games and toys. If you would like to purchase an item and donate it to the school, please take a look at our wish list found HERE.

Donations should be dropped off at the school's front door no later than Friday, Feb. 11. We thank you in advance for your generosity!

Celebrity Reader Search

Do you know a local celebrity? Do you know someone with a "super cool" job? We are looking for community members to join the kids via Zoom or submit a recording of themselves reading a children's book.

March 1-5 is National Read Across America Week, and we'd love to give our students one more reason to be excited about reading. We need a variety of guest readers who would be willing to tell us a little bit about themselves and then share a picture book. Maybe a firefighter shows his equipment and then reads a fire truck book, or an athlete could show his uniform and read a book about the importance of practicing. The sky's the limit for ideas!

If you know someone who would be interested in reading, please share their contact information with We will work with them directly to coordinate the details.
