Join the PTA!

Why should I join the PTA?

The Wayside Elementary School PTA is successful because of committed and generous parents like you! Every year our PTA plans, hosts, and funds numerous events, such as Bingo Night, Skate Night, Multicultural Night, Community Service Night, STEM Night, the Spring Carnival, and the Art Fair. The PTA funds important programs and resources, including BrainPop, IXL, and cultural assemblies. We also support our teachers and staff throughout the school year.

How much does it cost to join the PTA?

PTA membership dues are $35. All PTA members will get one free copy of the school directory.

How do I join the PTA?

To join the PTA, please visit and:

Create a new account (if you are new to Wayside or did not join the PTA last year). After verifying your email and information, visit the Membership Dues and Donations page to join the PTA and make a direct donation


Login to your AtoZ account (if you are a returning AtoZ user from last year), verify your information and join the PTA on the Membership Dues and Donations page.

Do I have to volunteer my time when I join the PTA?

No! Joining the PTA does not commit you to volunteering. We are mindful of parents’ busy lives and welcome your time and expertise in any way that fits your schedule.

How else can I support the Wayside PTA?

Please contribute to our Direct Donation Campaign! The membership dues do not cover the cost of everything the PTA does for Wayside Elementary School, so we ask members to consider a donation of $100 per family. You can add a direct donation to your online payment or check when you renew your membership or join the PTA.
