Wade King PTA supports...

We will continue to invest in library resources, materials to support units of inquiry for grade levels & family education, and more.

Extracurricular & Family Fun Activities—such as the Talent Show & World Tour.

Teacher Support—A PTA grant for classroom supplies and field trip expenses for each teacher.

Enrichment—administering and offsetting the cost of field trips, Chess, Art, Math Olympiad, Chinese culture & language, etc.

Technology—supplemental technology and tools that fall outside district budgets (eg, Lego robotics)

Fundraising—How to pay for it all? Our annual Globe Trot raised over $28,000 last year to support PTA programs and school needs. PTA also manages ongoing fundraising like SCRIP, Box-Tops, & Campbell's Labels for Education.
