Wallingford Elementary School PTO

The Wallingford Elementary School (WES) Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) consists of a group of concerned parents who volunteer their time and expertise to help augment the educational and recreational programs at WES. Raising funds through a number of fundraisers, the WES PTO is able to support activities such as our library programs, visiting authors, international night, math night, science assemblies, and cultural arts assemblies. In addition, we provide funding to purchase everything from supplies for the school nurse all the way to big ticket items such as new playground equipment.

The WES PTO is able to make these types of significant contributions to our children’s overall educational experience due to the generous contribution of both time and money from the families that make up the WES community. We thank you for your continued support!

To find out more about us, please contact the PTO Chair, Kelly Whitehead.
