Did you know that every parent at Wyndcroft is a member of our parent Teacher Organization (WPTO)? The WPTO is an important part of daily life for every member of the Wyndcroft community and your involvement really does make a difference!
The Wyndcroft Parent Teacher Organization (WPTO) is a fun, involved group of parents that work together to facilitate many exciting and interesting events at school. The primary goals of the WPTO are:
- To enrich the educational experience of the students at the Wyndcroft School by providing activities, services and projects for these students.
- To provide a channel of communication between parents, teachers and administration and to promote a continuing positive relationship between these groups.
- To foster parental involvement in school functions, programs and projects.
The WPTO has meetings throughout the year where upcoming opportunities for involvement at the school are discussed. Even if you can't attend WPTO meetings, your input and participation is still important. The involvement of parents at Wyndcroft is key to creating a nurturing environment for our students . We are fortunate to have many willing parents who volunteer their time at the school. No time is too little. Every minute of parent involvement counts.
