Wellington Annual Fund Logo

Wellington PTO is a non-profit, volunteer-run charitable organization that relies on your financial support. There are a number of ways you can help us make a difference at Wellington. Please read these options carefully so that you can select the appropriate link!

If you have any questions, please contact our PTO co-Presidents at wellingtonptopresidents@gmail.com

There are many things about Wellington for which we are grateful:

  • An amazing group of teachers, staff members and custodians who ensure our children are educated and supported in a safe environment.
  • A strong community of families who stay connected and committed to each other
  • An incredible principal who is leading our school with wisdom, compassion, and grace.

The Wellington PTO is committed to supporting teachers, students, and our community. Historically, our PTO membership drive has been one of our largest fundraisers. We have shifted to an annual fund that will separate membership from fundraising and be more responsive to the financial abilities of our school community. 

Contributions to the Wellington PTO Annual Fund will support the following things during the 2021-2022 school year:

  • Grade-specific and school-wide enrichment programs
  • Magazine and online subscriptions for classrooms
  • Teacher reimbursements for classroom needs
  • Community building initiatives and events
  • Ongoing encouragement initiatives for teachers and staff

Please join us in supporting our school by donating to the Wellington Annual Fund!

How much should I give to the annual fund?

We recognize there are many financial challenges facing Wellington families, and we respect that every family will have to consider their own economic situation before making a donation. In a typical year, the PTO spends approximately $200/child on various initiatives, but a gift of any amount is greatly appreciated!

Donations can be one-time or spread out on a monthly basis via PayPal.

Fourth Grade Send-Off (4GSO)

The Fourth Grade Send-Off (4GSO) is an annual tradition in Belmont. At Wellington, it is a celebration held just for the fourth graders and their parents/guardians to commemorate the end of the students' time in elementary school and the transition to middle school. In addition to fundraising during the school year (Spirit Wear, Moozy's Day) and some funding from the PTO for souvenirs, fourth grade families are asked to make a small donation for a special celebration.  Please note that all fourth graders and their parents may fully participate in the event regardless of whether or not a contribution is made.
