Everyone enjoys watching our students at the many events and attendance based fundraisers that Home and School heads up. However, not all of our money makers or services culminate in big events.  There are many committees that run services and fundraisers year-round for the benefit of our families and students.  Please see the list below for volunteer opportunities that are a bit more behind the scenes.
 

Box Tops for Education: 

This is an easy way for families to get involved. Collect box tops from General Foods products Campbell’s Labels for Education and drop them in the designated box in the school foyer. This program requires little from us, but leads to generous results. 

Butterfly Garden: 

Working to keep Wenonah Elementary School’s award-winning butterfly garden in tip top shape, these volunteers bring our school a little springtime all year round. If you love to garden, we need you!

Community Outreach

This committee organizes a variety of programs that aid those in need.  Look for more information regarding programs such as Soda Tabs for Ronald McDonald House, Toys for Tots, and Food Drives.

Cultural Arts

Throughout the year, Home and School subsidizes and even covers costs for our kids so Wenonah Elementary families can attend cultural arts programs and events throughout the region. We’ve been to ballets, planetariums, concerts, and more. Come out and join us!

Directory

A must have for all Wenonah School families! We gather and publish information about our children by class so when you need to contact someone in your school community, the information is right at your fingertips. A team of careful readers review this directory before publication. Are you a good editor? We need your eyes.

Door to Door Organics Co-Op

Help both the school and your family with this healthy food fundraiser.   Deliveries are ongoing throughout the calendar year.Orders are delivered weekly or bi-weekly to a central Wenonah location.  Home and School earns a percentage of all orders.

Gift Wrap Fundraiser  

Before the holiday season, we offer this fundraiser for the kids to participate in. They earn prizes for selling gift wrap and candy and we earn money to go toward fun events and curriculum enhancements.

Hospitality

Thanks to the hospitality committee and volunteers we can enjoy refreshments and goodies at school and Home and School events.  We are always looking for bakers. 

Learning for Fun

Learning for Fun offers afterschool sessions in such curriculum enhancements as art, athletics, computers, cooking, jewelry making, nature walks, poetry, and Spanish. Options are limited to what parent volunteers are willing to share with the kids, so dust off that hidden interest, talent, or hobby and share your passion! A teaching certificate is not required and this program provides significant funds for our kids.

The Learning Letter

The Learning Letter is an art and literary treasure with contributors ranging from our kids to teachers, parents, and other community members. Have a good story or poem?  Share your ideas at a Home and School meeting.

Lunch Program

To give us a nice break from packing those lunches, we offer a program where parents can purchase (in advance) lunches for their children. In addition, parent volunteers get to serve lunches while experiencing the lunchroom scene! Do you have a few minutes mid-day? We could use your help.

SCRIPS Program

Purchase grocery and department store gift cards right from us and we get a percentage! You spend nothing more than you would be spending anyway and our school benefits! Contact Lois for stores we currently cover or check out our website for a link.

Spirit Sales

Boost school spirit with great Wenonah Logo items for sale.

Staff Appreciation

We love to show our teachers how much we appreciate them for their hard work and we do so by coordinating activities like the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon and something special for Teacher Appreciation Week. This is a great way to be involved and stay connected to teachers.

Weekly Notes

The Weekly Notes are a vital link in Home and School communication to parents. Each week, the corresponding secretary combines input from our school community to create the week’s newsletter, which is then emailed to all parents.  Do you want an email blast sent to our parents? Let the corresponding secretary know!

Yearbook

This much anticipated keepsake comes out in the spring and is full of photographs of the children and activities from the school year. The more photos we send the yearbook coordinators, the better the yearbook will be.
