PTA 2017-2018 Membership Form (download form)
The PTA is a group of parents, teachers and community members who come together to support WSES, and provide many of the extras that make our school an exceptional place to learn and grow. The West Springfield Elementary School 2017-18 PTA WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN STUDENT LED FUNDRAISING. Instead we ask that each family make a one time, tax deductible contribution, in addition to your dues, to cover the cost of programs at WSES. No student led fundraising means we will not ask your student to sell wrapping paper, magazines, mattresses or mulch. We will not participate in run-a-thons, book-a-thons, or any-other-a-thons that require students to collect pledges from friends, family, neighbors or coworkers. We will not host car washes, bake sales or beg on the street corner. We will collect box tops, host dine-out nights, participate in store rewards and script sales, however, these activities provide a very meager amount of our revenue.
Our primary source of funding is direct contributions. With a fully funded budget, the 2017-18 PTA will provide support for:
- STEAM Lab equipment & supplies
- Grade level academic enhancements (materials, manipulatives and supplies)
- Classroom allowances for each teacher, including PE, Music, Art, Foreign Language, and Special Education
- Kindergarten Playdate
- Cultural arts programs & assemblies
- Author visits
- Transportation for field trips
- Science Expo
- BINGO Night
- International Night
- Library materials
- Back-to School Ice Cream Social
- Field Day
- Recycling Programs
- 6th grade promotion celebration
- Support for students in need
- Staff appreciation activities
- Student led clubs such as SCA, News Crew, Safety Patrols, Peer Mediators & First Friends
- AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!

The PTA strives for 100% participation from our WSES families and staff. All students and staff benefit from the programs supported by the PTA and we ask that all participate and contribute as they are able. In addition to financial resources, we are always looking for adults to volunteer their time both inside the school and from home. Please join us at a meeting to get involved!
