Dear Wakelee families, 

The Wakelee Elementary School PTO would like to welcome you back to another great school year! We want to thank all our returning families for your help and constant support in the past and we are excited to get to know all the new families this year at WES! Our common goal as parents is to make our school and our students' educational experience the best they can be. We are here to support WES families and staff as much as possible. While we know there will be a lot of changes this year and flexibility is a must, we will continue to provide as many opportunities and experiences to your children with safety as our top priority. This year, we will be exploring alternative ways to fund our missions. We have some ideas in mind, so stay tuned! 

Your input, ideas, and feedback are very important to us! Please contact us any time through email ( and we will connect with you. Please join our Facebook PTO (Wakelee P TO) page for important updates and announcements. 

We welcome you to join us for PTO meetings, a planning committee, or volunteer when needed. To join the PTO please click here Join the P TO. Be on the lookout for updates via Facebook or email! We'd like to introduce you to our board members, some of which are new and some old.

Although 20202 has been anything but traditional, we have still been pretty busy as an organization! We ended the year by purchasing tee-shirts, bags and yearbooks for the 5th graders and provided snacks for the teachers during the teacher parade. At the start of this year, we gave each of our amazing staff a shirt and provided a welcome back luncheon for them. We secured a donation of a picnic table from Home Depot to create an outdoor lunch area for the staff as well as purchased a second. We purchased lanyards for each student and staff member to help keep track of their masks during breaks. 

We want to let you know that we understand that things are very different right now. Because of this, we are encouraging everyone to join the PTO and get involved. We are waiving our $20 registration fee for the 20-21 school year as another way to give back, however if you would like to make a donation we would gladly accept and appreciate your generosity. We look forward to working with so many of you over the school year and encourage ideas from everyone so that we can have a successful year. 

Again, welcome back, we look forward to a fantastic school year! 

Ann Marie, Cathy, Tricia, Tiffany, Lyndsey, Amber Erica, Jodi, Kristin, Erin, Crissy
