BACK TO SCHOOL WIZARD!
Our PTA's online "Parent Connect" system has a quick and easy Back To School Wizard that allows you to purchase spirit wear and yearbooks, contribute to our #TechForWyatt fundraising campaign, join PTA, sign up for volunteer opportunities, edit your online directory information, and more - all in one simple process!
This is the online system our PTA will be using throughout the school year for selling spirit wear, tickets to social events, and yearbooks, as well as for our fundraising events.

#TECHFORWYATT TECHNOLOGY CAMPAIGN - DONATE TODAY!
Help Wyatt bring new technology and learning tools into every classroom with a tech donation! See the fundraiser flyer here. The campaign runs from August 5th through September 30th. Prepare our students for the future with technology today! We have currently raised almost $5000 to fund 17 classroom tablets - a good start, but we have a long way to go to meet the needs of the teachers and students!
A donation of $40 per child will provide 10 tablets per grade level. Donate online at https://pisd.parentconnect.net, or drop off checks in the PTA treasure box in the Wyatt office (payable to Wyatt PTA). Questions? Contact Esther Rutnam at firstname.lastname@example.org.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are you new to Wyatt? Not sure what PTA is all about? Check out a few questions that might help you get in the loop...
What does PTA do? We support the students, staff, & families at Wyatt through innovative programs, volunteer efforts, & fundraising assistance. We pay for the assemblies, author visits, social events, & field trips that your child enjoys each year, as well as countless materials to enhance the kids' education - advanced math workbooks, fine arts & PE materials, library & classroom books, & so much more! In addition, our PTA is the ONLY source of funds for providing much-needed classroom tablets through our #techforwyatt campaign. We don't just pay for "extras", we fund items no longer paid for by the district & state that are critical to your child's educational experience! We also provide volunteers for the teachers to help prepare classroom materials, monitor lunchtime, & plan classroom parties, which allows them more time to do what they do best - TEACH!
Why should I join/support PTA? By joining PTA, you become a member of the largest child advocacy group in the country. Membership dues are just $14.50 per year; your dues help fund the many school programs & educational materials highlighted above. When you: join PTA; attend PTA events; donate to #techforwyatt; contribute to our Kroger, Tom Thumb, Box Tops, and other community partnership programs; and buy spirit wear, books at our book fair, school supplies, & spring auction items, you are showing your support for a quality education for your child!
What is a yearbook? Yearbooks are hard-cover color books (usually approximately 90 pages) that are designed by the PTA each year. They include lots or photos and articles the students and events from the school year. Past year's yearbooks are available for viewing in the library. During the last week of school, yearbooks are passed to all kids who have ordered one; they then pass them around to their friends and sign each other's yearbooks. It is not mandatory to purchase one, but is a fun keepsake of the school year - some families even order extras to send to relatives living far away to give them an idea of what their child's school year was like! Yearbooks are available for purchase in the online store.
