Letter From the President
Welcome from your PTSO
Bienvenidos! ようこそ！ Bienvenue! Willkommen! 欢迎
Hello Waddell Families! On behalf of the entire PTSO, welcome to a new school year! We enter 2017/2018 with a new level of excitement because we know that our parents are dedicated to excellence, our teachers are the Gold Standard, and our students are simply AMAZING. The PTSO board looks forward to working together with all of you to make this remarkable year. We will elevate the mission of our PTSO, by putting a special focus on how we communicate with teachers, the school and parents. The mission is to promote quality education and a secure personal foundation for the students at Waddell. The PTSO strives to serve the needs of the school by assisting in volunteer service, financial support and communication to benefit teachers, staff, students & parents.
The PTSO encourages parents to visit the online calendar often and become engaged in various school activities and roles. Language Culture Nights, World Market, Teacher Appreciation Week, Field Day, Room Parent Leadership, and Copy Room Helper are just a few opportunities to get involved. We have established two staple fundraisers that will continue this year. Involvement by every family will ensure success once again for the 1) Boosterthon Fun Run (October) and the 2) Invest in Your Child (IYC) capital campaign (Throughout the year). We thank you in advance for your participation! It is because of the strong volunteer efforts of our committed parents, dedication of our teachers and wonderful collaboration within our school community that we are able to offer so many academic & cultural activities throughout the school year.
We are very much looking forward to a great year ahead!

PTSO President 2017/18
