Welcome to the Washington Elementary PTA!

Hello, Wildcat Families!

We are so excited for you to be a part of the Washington Elementary PTA! As a member, you can stay informed, get involved, vote, and help when you can. As parents ourselves, we understand how busy life can get. We want to help you be a part of things, but in ways that work for you and your family. Whether you can help from home, at the school, or just by being a voting member, we appreciate what you are able to invest in our great school and its students.

Washington PTA Meeting Information

WHEN: every second Wednesday of the month, 3:30-4:30 PM. (Except February 7, adjusted for Valentine’s Day)

WHERE: Washington Elementary’s Library


*Zoom invitations will be emailed to registered PTA members the Monday prior to the monthly meetings for parents wanting to attend remotely.


Meeting Agenda: Agendas will be posted on the Washington PTA Bulletin Board and the PTA Website prior to the meetings. If you have items to add to the agenda for New Business, please email our PTA Secretary Andrea Sanders at andrea.b.sanders@gmail.com by 5:00 PM the Wednesday before the PTA meeting.


Childcare: We would like to provide childcare for Washington students during the one hour meetings. In nice weather this will be on the playground, in inclement weather in a designated space in the school. Parents will be asked to sign their children in and out on a clipboard. Younger children are welcome to play with toys brought by the PTA in a small area of the library. Childcare is covered for the November Meeting on 11/08 already and the Signup for other parents to help for future meetings will be shared after it is approved that day.


*There will be a signup genius for parents (1 parent per meeting) who are able to watch the small group of children whose parents are attending the meeting. These individuals will be asked to complete a routine background check (per the district’s request). We hope this will allow more parents to attend.

What is a Class Communicator?

Long iMessage Bubble Blue Icon

Starting this year, each class at Washington will have a Class Communicator. This person will send texts to families that opt-in to receive PTA texts about upcoming school events. This position will also help answer parent questions regarding those texts and help find needed volunteers & materials.

We asked for recommendations for these positions from teachers and staff, and parents. We took all the recommendations we were given, and then grouped them by class. Then drew names from a hat and contacted the parents in that order. We have such a great group of parents! There were many parents recommended to us!
