Welcome Back to School…. and WLHS’ PTSA!

Welcome back to another exciting year at the Lake!  Along with reading syllabi and filling out forms, I want you to add joining the Wilde Lake High School PTSA (Parent, Teacher, and Student Association) to your family’s “first-week-back” to-do list.

When you join the PTSA, you ensure that…

  • Parents, students, and teachers have a strong voice in advising the school administration on policies and procedures;
  • Parents are supported in their children’s growth and development (our kids need us now as much as ever);
  • Our community is fostering our youth’s role as current and future citizens;
  • Our teachers and staff are supported in the important work they do; and
    Students have safe choices for socializing and celebrating life’s milestones (like the Spring Prom).

As a parent, teacher, student, or community member you are the key to the PTSA’s success!  Joining the PTSA is two easy steps.

  1. Start by filling out the WLHS Membership Form 2016-17 and sending it back to school with payment.
    • You can send it into the school office with your student.
    • You can return it via U.S. mail to WLHS PTSA, c/o Wilde Lake HS, 5460 Trumpeter Road, Columbia, MD 21044.
    • You can also make enter membership information and make your payment on-line at square (a modest service charge will apply to this option).
  2. Then come to our Back-to-PTSA Organizational Meeting, 7-8:30pm Tuesday, September 20, at the school.  We need lots of helpers to make our year a success, and many hands (and hearts) make for light work (and lots of fun!).

Thank you for considering joining PTSA this year.  I look forward to your creativity and support.  Don’t delay…join the WLHS PTSA today!

If for some reason you can’t come on September 20, send us an email at wildelakehsptsa@gmail.com, and we’ll have someone contact you about ways you can help.

Wilde Lake High School PTSA

New School Year: A Time for Renewal(s)

After some well-deserved summer rest, it’s time to dive into the 2016-17 school year.  This includes signing up for various parent-support tasks at school and renewing your PTSA membership (or joining for the first time).   It’s easy to do.  Simply sign up here.

We need EVERY dedicated and talented parent (like you) working with staff to make our school great.  If everyone joins, it means that no one person has to do a lot.  So please join today!
