Welcome to the WES PTO

The Wallingford Elementary School (WES) Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) comprises parents who volunteer their time and expertise to augment the educational and recreational programs at WES.  Through fundraising, the PTO is able to support academic, cultural, and enrichment programs across all grade levels at WES.  In addition, the PTO provides funding to purchase everything from essential supplies for the school nurse to big-ticket items such as new playground equipment.

The WES PTO is able to make significant contributions to our children’s overall educational experience because of the generous contribution of 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.
