2. Seeking Your Creative Ideas for 2021-2022!

Want to get involved in the Wayside community? We’d love your help! Before we know it, the new school year will be here, and we want to be ready to hit the ground running. We are seeking volunteers to help in the following areas:

  • Membership/Directory Chair: Promote membership and organize the school directory. Most of the work is done mid-August to October.
  • Reflections Chair: Coordinate PTA Reflections art program at Wayside. Most of the work is done October to January.
  • Logowear Co-chair: Work with VP Ways & Means on logowear designs, sales, and vendors. Logowear will likely be online next year.
  • Hospitality Chair(s): Organize treats for our Wayside staff in spring and fall, and the holiday lunch.
  • Room Parent Coordinator: We expect room parents to return in 2021-2022! The room parent coordinator is the main point of contact between room parents and the PTA Board/School.

If you are interested in helping out, please contact Kirsten Carr at volunteers@waysidepta.org.

3. Seeking PTA Members for the Financial Review Committee

Every year, the PTA is required to do a financial review of its books. We are looking for three PTA members who are willing to serve on the financial review committee. It would take a few hours over the summer (July/August). Volunteers do not need to be accountants or financial professionals. Committee members can do the work based on their own schedules. If interested, contact Jennifer Nordin at president@waysidepta.org.

4. Spirit Night at Potomac Pizza on June 9!

Our last Spirit Night of the school year is Potomac Pizza (Falls Road) on June 9!

5. MCPS Boundary Analysis Report

MCPS has released the final boundary analysis report, which can be found here.

6. It Takes A Village

Congratulations to the many students who participated in Wayside’s very first Virtual Talent Show! A big round of applause to Melissa Adler and Yuan Zhao (and many SSL students) for organizing the event.
