The Waitsfield PTA is a vital and important part of our school.  It sponsors informational meetings for parents and staff and raises funds for many special activities and equipment.  Their support enables children to participate in many enrichment activities including field trips and artist residencies.  There are many ways to be involved with the PTA; you can attend the monthly meeting ,the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00pm, or get involved with any of their many projects. Notification of PTA activities (and needs) generally comes through the school newsletter. 


Please be in touch with any of the PTA officers (see below) if you wish to further discuss the PTA and/or how you might get involved--- or feel free to stop by one of our meetings! 


Our ONE fund-raiser, the SKI & SKATE SALE:   

UPDATE! Waitsfield Ski & Skate Sale 2020

Out of consideration for community safety during COVID-19, the Waitsfield Elementary School’s PTA made the difficult decision to cancel its annual Ski & Skate Sale scheduled for November 14 and 15, and traditionally held onsite on the school’s grounds.
To keep the stoke going of this time-honored event - even during a pandemic - the Ski & Skate Sale is transitioning to a virtual model for 2020. Members of the WES 2020 Virtual Ski & Skate Sale Facebook Group can sell, trade or donate gear in a safe and responsible way. 
If you have any questions, feel free to send a message via Facebook or email Ski & Skate Sale Director Elisa Kiviranna at
