Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
Your Willow Glen Middle School PTA brings parents, teachers, and staff together to enhance the quality of education for our students. Our partnership with WGMS enriches the school day for the kids as we encourage a welcoming, safe and fun place of learning.
PTA supplements school funding providing valuable enrichment programs. We have proudly represented WGMS in amazing ways! Parent support of PTA has helped fund technology, field study trips, incentive programs for academic success, classroom supplies, science lab supplies, and teacher grants to purchase materials for classroom learning. We provide supplies and basic necessities to students in need promoting PTA’s goal of success for all students. In addition to the classroom, PTA supports student activities and fun all with the help of our indispensable parent volunteers.
Meetings start at 6:30PM and are held in the WGMS Media Center. At the meetings, members vote on requests for funding and receive updates on PTA, and school activities from the Principal Slayton and Committee Chairs. Upcoming meeting dates are 1/17, 2/28, 3/21, 4/18, 5/16 A general agenda includes PTA Status Report, Principal’s Report, Financial Report, Calendar and events Activity

their full potential.
* Parents/guardians are children’s first teachers.
* Family involvement is essential throughout a child’s educational experience.
* Family is the basic unit of society responsible for the support and nurturing of all children.
* Family may be defined many ways.
Our collective responsibility includes advocating for the safety, welfare, and the opportunity for quality public education for all children. (*from the California State PTA website)
