A Note from Your Wyngate PTA (Parent-Teacher Association) Board:

We are like you. We love our Wyngate kid(s) and all the fun school-wide events like the spring fair, ice skating night, cultural arts assemblies and science fair. We appreciate having the school directory to arrange playdates, being able to check the website for after school activities and knowing that people in the community are helping to secure extra resources and funds for the school.

But what we know, and you may not, is that all of these fabulous programs (and more) are run by PTA volunteers who are very busy parents just like you. The sad reality is that if there aren't more people who raise their hands to help, these events and services won't be able to continue next year.

Please take three minutes to fill out this survey to let us know how you'll support your child's school next year. As you'll see, there are a variety of volunteer opportunities to fit your schedule, interests and talents. And not only will you be supporting the school, but you'll also be making connections with fellow Wyngate parents (and dare we say, having some fun too!).

If you'd like additional information about any of the roles, just let us know and we'll be happy to connect you with the current volunteers so they can give you a candid overview of the responsibilities. 

Thank you, in advance, for sharing your time to ensure that Wyngate continues to be a warm, active and supportive community!
