We are also in need of volunteers.

A message from PTA President, Kelly Balchunas:

It's that time of year when the PTA needs to begin setting up next year's executive board and committees. I cannot stress enough: THE PTA NEEDS VOLUNTEERS AND LEADERS!

The executive board is comprised of the President, 2 Vice Presidents, Treasurer, Corresponding Secretary, and Recording Secretary. At least 4 of the 6 positions on the executive board will be open and must be filled with different individuals.

Open executive board positions include:

  • PTA President
  • Both Vice President slots
  • Recording Secretary

The PTA also needs individuals for our various committees, both as committee chairs and committee members. Our committees that will need leaders and members include:

  • Family Enrichment (plans activities for kids and families during the year)
  • Wellness (Fitness Fridays and Family Fit Night)
  • Waverly Directory (electronically creates Waverly directory)
  • Box Tops and Bonus Programs (includes grocery stores and Amazon)
  • Hospitality (meals for teacher conferences)
  • 5th Grade Activities (special activities for graduating students)
  • Kid Council (involve students in activities)

This is the time for you to step into these roles and take the PTA forward!  It is crucial these roles are filled in order to have a functioning PTA next year.

All that is necessary to assume these positions is the willingness to do it! You do not need to be a stay-at-home-parent (most current leaders on the PTA work outside the home).  You do not need to be available during the school day (most of the planning of PTA events/activities occurs according to availability).  You do not need any special skills (I, in particular, never led an organization before).  You just need to be willing to do it.  You will have the assistance of this year's leadership for transitioning into any role.

Please contact us with your interest. We need to hear from you. Thanks!

 Volunteer Requirements

Maryland State Law requires volunteers, including Parent Volunteers, complete annual Child Abuse Training prior to serving as a school volunteer (in any capacity, including field trip/chaperones).  Child Abuse Training provides volunteers with the opportunity to learn about child abuse reporting procedures when abuse is suspected. We are asking that each of our volunteers complete Child Abuse Training prior to assisting in school.  

STEP 1: Please view the child abuse presentation by clicking here. STEP 2: Once you have viewed the presentation, please download and print the certificate of completion and return it to Waverly Elementary School.  Please turn in your completed certificate to the front office as you enter.

Thank you again for your participation in our school and helping to ensure that each of our students remains safe.

Join Us

Whether you are new to our school or have been around awhile, we invite you to join us. We welcome new ideas and value enthusiasm from members and volunteers, new and old.

Any ideas, comments, suggestions or committee needs for the the website, please contact Alison Cuomo.
