Each school has an active parent-teacher organization that meets periodically during the school year. Parents are urged to join the organization and give it support and assistance. Notices concerning meetings and activities will be sent home. In addition to fund raising, these volunteer programs sponsor special performance and educational enrichment programs for students, as well as a number of child care programs: before school program and after school care programs in each elementary school. Specific information on these programs can be obtained from the individual building PTA/PTO Officers.
The Wellington PTO is a volunteer organization that supports your child(ren)’s education. The Wellington PTO funds field trips and enrichment programs to enhance, elevate, and diversify each Wellington Elementary School student’s school experience. The Wellington PTO welcomes parents & guardians to contribute in a variety of ways such as volunteering at events, making donations, and volunteering in the library. The Wellington PTO also funds teachers’ instructional expenses, textbooks, and library books.
Each classroom has 1-2 assigned PTO Room Parent(s), who serve(s) as a liaison between parents/guardians and teachers. Room Parents are provided with parent/guardian contact information. The Room Parent will communicate with you using phone or email. These communications usually include information about classroom needs, coordinating class gifts, and coordinating parent field trip volunteers. Room Parents are not permitted to use the email distribution or telephone lists for any personal/or political reasons. Room Parents at Wellington Elementary School must attend a short training and also must adhere to the expected PTO and school communication processes and policies. At least one room parent per grade is encouraged to attend Wellington PTO meetings (usually 3-4 meetings per year).

Anyone interacting with children needs to have a CORI on file. Please see the Wellington Elementary School secretary for more information.
