Wilder PTSA

 Volunteering

There are many ways to volunteer! We’d be happy to talk with you to find out your interests and help you determine the best fit. Some take just a couple hours of your time, others take a longer commitment. There is something for everyone at Wilder. New Volunteer Background Applications are mandatory for all volunteers. Forms are available in the Wilder office. 

How do I get involved in the PTSA? 

Being a part of the Wilder PTSA is a great opportunity to meet other parents and to learn about all of the amazing events and activities at Wilder as well as throughout the entire Lake Washington school district.

If you are interested in learning more about the PTSA and how you can get involved, please reach out to any of our Board members or attend any of our meetings. We are always interested in hearing new ideas and new opinions and would love the opportunity to welcome you aboard! There are many open chair positions as well as Executive Board positions each year, please take the plunge and join in on the fun!

 

VP Positions – executive board members

If you are interested in jumping in with both feet, become one of our VPs! As a VP you are an elected, voting member of the PTSA executive board with planning meetings held three times throughout the year. As a VP you will be actively planning the events and activites that our students experience! 

Chair Positions – board of directors members

As a chair, you are automatically part of our PTSA Board of Directors and may attend any and all of our PTSA Board of Director’s meetings held monthly. This allows you to not only learn first hand knowledge of what is going on at Wilder, but to also have a say and to actively be a part of the PTSA process!

 

There are a few board positions that we urgently need to fill:

Fall Carnival: 1 co-chair

Year Book: 2 co-chairs

School Beautification: 1 chair

Affinity Programs/Grants: 1 chair 

Newsletter: 1 co-chair

Staff Appreciation: 1 co-chair

We want you to feel welcome and be involved – please join us at any of our meetings to learn more. We look forward to meeting you!
