2019 PTA Presidents’ Welcome

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Walter Hays Elementary!

Did you know all students are provided with all classroom supplies they need throughout the year? This couldn’t happen without being 100% funded by parent donations via the One Check Form. Donations into this fund also support our science program’s Junior Museum visits, our social thinking classroom program, our stage productions, and more.

The One Check Form is the main fundraiser for our school. This year, we have moved to a completely electronic one check form. This helps to decrease the number of volunteers hours needed to process paper forms, reduces data entry errors and is more environmentally friendly. Please do participate in this important fundraiser in whatever amount is appropriate for your family. We would like to stress that participation is more important than amount.

Please pay directly via our Walter Hays Online Store here. For those who would prefer to (or need to) pay by other means, please reach out to treasurer Radhika Vullikanti at walterhaystreasurer@gmail.com.

We also have some fantastic new logo wear options this year. Purchasing logo wear is another way to support our school (all profits come straight back to Walter Hays) and it is also a great way to show your school pride! Logo wear will be available for purchase on the online store.

Parents! Tickets still remain for the Yacht Rock Party, which has been moved to September 14th.  Kick off the 2019 school year dancing the night away with your fellow Hays parents. Tickets for this event are available on the online store here.

Further school year information will be shared in the WH E-news on Sunday evenings, class flyers and UpToUS. We also look forward to seeing everyone at the Back-To-School Nights coming up on August 19th (kinder) and 20th (1st-5th grades).

Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or comments now or throughout the year. We look forward to meeting you all!
