Welcome to the WOM PTA Website for 2018-2019!

We are primarily here to enhance your student's experience at WOM by helping to foster a sense of community through various events, as well as raising money to supplement our school's equipment and supplies, and providing funds to support teacher travel to training opportunities. We hope that you will join us in this endeavor!

Community Communication:


Dear WOM Community,


On behalf of your PTA Board, I'd like to welcome you all back for another exciting school year!  And greetings to our new families!  

On your PTA Board, we are welcoming a new officer, Lindsay Dentel, as Treasurer this year, in addition to your Round 2 Crew members: Ashley FreulerLisa Allen & Katie Cooper with special guest Kyle Martin as our amazing PTA Admin liaison!

We have included below some details on upcoming events AND a list of why your involvement in PTA is important!

Get Connected

Sunday, August 19th, 3pm to 5pm.  
Parker's Creek at Jordan Lake.  
  • Connect with new classmates and old for an end of summer social sponsored by your WOM PTA. This is a great chance for students to get more familiar with others in their class and to extend a warm welcome to all you new families!  
  • We'll gather at Parker's Creek, pavilion #5, right by the swimming access to the lake. We'll have popsicles for the children. Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks. Towels and noodles are good too!  Parking is $7/car but please let us know if this is a financial hardship and PTA will help. We don't want anyone to miss out. Looking forward to seeing you there! 
  • Make sure you head to Parker's Creek, easily confused with other spots on the lake. Here's more specifics and the park website:"The entrance to Parker's Creek is on US 64. Traveling west on US 64, go over the bridge on Jordan Lake. The entrance is on the right. Traveling east on US 64, the Parkers Creek entrance is the first left after seeing lake."   https://www.ncparks.gov/jordan-lake-state-recreation-area/directions 

Back to School - Meet the Teacher Night
Monday, August 20th, 5:00 to 6:30pm.
  • Come get your Spirit Wear On! Plus learn about all the ways you can support WOM through PTA this year. Spirit wear will also be on sale through the PTA website soon.  
  • Join the PTA-- we'd love to have you!  Look for the PTA table. We accept cash, check, and cc for your convenience.  

PTA meetings 
  • Held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. Check the school calendar for dates, to be posted soon.  We will pilot a simultaneous webinar option in addition to the in person meeting for your convenience.  We hope the flexibility of the two options will allow more to attend.
