PTA Committees

There are so many exciting things happening at West Vincent Elementary! Take a look at all the PTA Committees below — we need lots of volunteers to make these events happen for our kids. Please sign-up to volunteer here! 

All Pro Dad
Bi-monthly breakfast for kids and their dads held four times each year. During this time, they discuss a wide range of family topics, spend time together, create fun memories, and are equipped with resources to strengthen their relationship.

Auction
This is the PTA's largest fundraiser and an awesome family night out. Volunteers are needed to procure donated items for auction, plan the event and oversee the auction. Planning begins in the fall and the event is held in the spring.

Auditing
This committee is to be elected by the Executive Board in March to review the financial books at close of fiscal year. Purpose is to certify the accuracy of the books and records of the organization, and to assure the membership that the association's resources/funds are being managed in a businesslike manner within the regulations established for their use. One time event in July.

Back to School Bash
Bring the whole family to meet new friends and catch up with those you haven't seen all summer at this annual Welcome Back party.  Spirit wear merchandise will be available; entertainment and music is provided by a DJ; food will be available for purchase.

Bingo Night
This is a family fun night!  We will gather to play bingo and raffle prizes. Volunteers needed to obtain donated prizes. The night of the event help is needed to set up, help where needed and clean up.

Book Fair
A week-long event in the fall and spring that requires both daytime volunteers and evening volunteers. For those volunteering during the day, it's a great opportunity to spend time with the children and teachers.

Collections
The school receives money and items for turning in General Mills box tops. Volunteers are needed to organize the box tops so that they can be sent to the appropriate company according to their bundling/tabulating requirements. Ongoing through school year.

Community Garden
Volunteers help tend to our vegetable garden during the school year and throughout the summer.  Even just a little amount of time goes a long way in the garden!

Earth Day
This is a premier event for the PTA. Held in May, all students participate in a day of activites and presentations surrounding the "earth day" theme. Volunteers are needed to plan, staff, set up and clean up for the day.

Hospitality
This committee is responsible for supplying refreshments at various events during the school year. We have a budget for food items but we also take donations of food items to help offset the costs of some events. If you like to bake, this one is for you!

Master Minds Game Club
Volunteer needed to organize and attend game club meetings.

Outdoor Classroom
Volunteers needed to work with the staff to care for the garden and expand the program. Ongoing during the school year.

Publishing Center
Turn our students' stories and class projects into keepsakes. Duties include typing on the computer, using desktop publishing, working with the students and binding the finished projects. Ongoing through school year.

Reflections Art Contest
This program, sponsored by the National PTA, encourages children to use art to express themselves. Volunteers are needed to provide overall direction for the students in an area of expertise: literature, dance choreography, visual arts, music, photography or film. This is a singular event and volunteering would occur in September/October.

Spirit Wear
Volunteers needed to sell spirit wear at school events.

Staff Appreciation Luncheon
Volunteers needed to plan luncheon, set up, help where needed, and clean up. This is very rewarding as the teachers and staff are very appreciative of this event.

Talent Show
Excellent opportunity to help the kids show off their talents. Help is needed to organize, screen & schedule the event.

Yearbook
Volunteers are needed for each class to collect photos, forward to yearbook chair or upload to yearbook website, arrange and assemble contents of yearbook. If you want to see your little pumpkin in the yearbook, we need your pictures.
