Committee Chairs

Assemblies

To help enrich our children’s school experience, we research and schedule interesting and educational speakers/programs that are put on for the students throughout the year.

Bingo Night

Sandy Gasis

A fun night that gets us all out during the dead of winter!

Book Fair

Jaclyn Martin

Danielle Williams

Each year in the spring the book fair comes to our school so students and families have the opportunity to purchase good books for their home libraries and in turn we earn book credits for the school library and classrooms. We rely on parent volunteers to help students shop and to manage the register.

Box Tops For 

Education

Kimberly Brown

This is an easy way for families to get involved. Collect box tops from General Foods products and Campbell’s Labels for Education and drop them in the designated box in the school foyer. This program requires little from us, but leads to generous results.

Breakfast with Santa

Danielle Williams

A town wide event for families to come and have a pancake breakfast while visiting with Santa, taking a photo, listening to the school choir, and enjoying some winter crafts. All hands on deck for this event!

Butterfly Garden

Working to keep Wenonah Elementary School’s award-winning butterfly garden in tip top shape, these volunteers bring our school a little springtime all year round. If you love to garden, we need you!

Cultural Arts

Throughout the year, H&S subsidizes and even covers costs for our kids so Wenonah Elementary families can attend cultural arts programs and events throughout the region. We’ve been to ballets, planetariums, concerts, and more. Come out and join us!

Directory

Lili Baylor

A must-have for all Wenonah School families! We gather and publish information about our children by class so when you need to contact someone in your school community, the information is right at your fingertips. A team of careful readers review this directory before publication. Are you a good editor? We need your eyes.

Holiday Gift Shop

Kate Esposito

Gwen Houldsworth

Jocelyn Wood

Lori Ann Winner

As part service, part fundraiser, parents and people in our community make small gifts for the children to select, purchase, and wrap for their families.  Preparation and work for this goes on all through the year and the children enjoy shopping and giving gifts that are a complete surprise! The committee leaders take care in offering hand-made, truly special items and they need you to glue, sew, tie, or just assemble basics. Special talents and skills appreciated, but not needed. Elves are also needed to help the little ones shop for their families.

Hospitality

Erin Cook

Thanks to the hospitality committee and volunteers we can enjoy refreshments and goodies at school and Home and School events. We are always looking for bakers.

Ice Cream Social

Deb Cline

Darcie Sanchez

Group Positions Open

The school grounds burst with activity as the whole Wenonah community gathers for a spring evening of games, balloons, and lots of homemade cakes, pies, brownies, cupcakes and ice cream! The biggest fundraiser of the year, this event requires all parents to provide goodies and pitch in with scooping ice cream and serving up fun. The team needs volunteers for subcommittees that cover entertainment, baskets, auction, advertising, and more. All hands on deck for the ICS! Positions are food, auction baskets, outdoor coordinator, decorations, community outreach, indoor coordinator and sponsors. 

Learning for Fun

Lauren Morgan

Rachel McCalley

Learning for Fun offers after-school sessions in such curriculum enhancements as art, athletics, computers, cooking, jewelry making, nature walks, poetry, and Spanish. Options are only limited by what parent volunteers are willing to share with the kids, so dust off that hidden interest, talent, or hobby and share your passion! A teaching certificate is not required and this program provides significant funds for our kids.

The Learning Letter

Marlo DiDonna

The Learning Letter is an art and literary treasure with contributors ranging from our kids to teachers, parents, and other community members. Have a good theme, idea, story or poem?  Share your ideas at a Home and School meeting.

Lunch Program

TJ Fini

Danielle Williams

Deb Cline

To give us a nice break from packing those lunches, we offer a program where parents can purchase (in advance) lunches for their children. In addition, parent volunteers get to serve lunches while experiencing the lunchroom scene! Do you have a few minutes mid-day on Wednesdays and/or Fridays? We could use your help.
