This year, the 'Invest in Your Child' Fundraiser was replaced by our NEW ‘No-Fuss Fundraiser’.  This fundraising campaign has been successful and will be our primary means of funding the 2013-2014 WMSPTO budget without the burden of selling subscriptions, wrapping paper, or candles!   

We are asking each family to make a one-time contribution of $40 per student or $75 per family, although any amount is appreciated -- no amount is too small, donations are accepted throughout the school year, and 100% of all funds support WMSPTO programs and activities. Thank you for your continued support.

You can donate online through PayPal or download the donation form from here.
 
ShoeBox Recycling
As your family outgrows their shoes, please drop them off in boxes placed in school lobbies anytime throughout the year from Sept-June. 

We need your help !
We would not be able to fulfill our mission without the significant resources of talent, time and donations from our parent population.  Even an hour of your time is appreciated.
