Join us for our next Spirit Night at Founding Farmers on April 24th!
10% of all orders will be donated back to the Wayside PTA.
The special code for those choosing to order online for pick up is “WAYSIDE”. When families are placing their orders, they MUST use this code.
For those dining in-person, families must tell their server they are there for the Wayside community night.
2. Staff Appreciation Week: Seeking Food Donations
Thank you to everyone that has signed up to donate a gift card! Please drop them off at Wayside’s front office by Tuesday, April 25th, if you haven’t already.

Staff Appreciation Week is the first week of May, and we want to show our fantastic Wayside staff how much their hard work means to us. Various treats and surprises are being planned for them throughout the week.
You can also help us say thank you to the Wayside staff for all that they do by signing up for items needed for snacks and lunches during staff appreciation week. Sign up here now!

Thanks for showing your appreciation for the Wayside staff!

3. Save the Date for Celebration of the Arts
Please attend Wayside’s Celebration of the Arts; “Life is Sweet” theme on Thursday, May 11th from 6:30-8:30 pm!  View your artists’ work that will be professionally framed under glass and take selfies at our student designed selfie station!  Be sure to listen to the fourth grade chorus perform outside in the courtyard, enjoy dinner (bring cash) and a “sweet” dessert!  It’s a night to remember with a community you can never forget!

Be on the lookout for further information on how to purchase your child’s framed masterpiece!

Volunteers Needed

Wayside’s Celebration of Arts Night is Thursday, May 11th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.  In order for this to be a huge success, we are looking for both adult and SSL students to volunteer!  Please sign up here.  If you have any questions, please contact Jackie Stief at activities@waysidepta.org.

Musicians Wanted

There are so many talented musicians at Wayside!  If your child is interested in providing the background music to our art show, please contact Edith Deng at edithdeng@gmail.com.  Students will be given a five – ten minute time slot to perform.  (A piano/keyboard will be available so pianists are strongly encouraged!)
