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! 

After-School Programs
West Vincent PTA offers FREE activities to expand our children’s horizons!

All Pro Dad

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

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.

Box Top 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.

Daddy Daughter Dance
The dance is a wonderful opportunity for daughters and daddies to dress up and bond.
