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!
