What is Parent Connection?
Parent Connection is an organization formed to enhance our children's school experience by promoting goodwill and cooperation among the children, teachers, and parents. This organization, consisting of parents, community members, teachers and school officials, hosts many events and fundraising activities to benefit our students.
What is the difference between Parent Connection and PTA?
The PTA is a national organization with its own agendas and by-laws. Anyone belonging must pay national dues. Parent Connection is self-supporting and all money raised directly supports WACS students and programs.
Why should I join?
Family and community involvement is essential to send children the message that their education is a priority. Any involvement, whether large or small, contributes to the growth of our children.
