WOES PTA POSITIONS AVAILABLE: 
Our very active PTA needs your help!  Please take a look at the open positions below and consider filling one of these roles.  If interested, please contact Ginny Peralta at worthingtonptapresident@gmail.com.

Cultural Arts Chair: Work with school staff to schedule school assemblies through research, scheduling, approval and contracting.

End of Year Celebration Event Coordinator: Are you an event planner at heart? Every year, we try to coordinate a movie night, picnic, or something super fun to celebrate the end of the school year. You would be the one in charge!

Room Parent Coordinator: Room parents need guidance – especially new ones.  This person helps to keep room parents on the same page with regards to guidelines and distributing information.  You would be a go-to person for room parent questions.

Silent Auction Helpers: Our BINGO event is one of the most attended each year and the silent auction is a huge moneymaker for the PTA.  Our silent auction coordinator needs a few hands to help solicit items for the baskets, put the baskets together, and help with the actual silent auction.


Looking for something fun to do before/after the WoES school day? How about drama, karate, science, chess, or newspaper, all conveniently hosted at WOES? Registration for each class is limited, so sign up early!
