WEAVER ELEMENTARY PTA
PROGRAMS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR INVOLVEMENT

Weaver PTA’s vision is to provide students with innovative and quality programs that enrich the student’s academic learning, as well as listening and learning through the arts. Our goal is to build a Weaver community with not only our students, but with the entire family.

PTA is a volunteer run organization and requires your help to make our programs successful. We invite you to join PTA and find ways in which to volunteer and support our students and school.

You can access Weaver PTA online at: www.weavertpta.org
   
Our newly redesigned website is a place for families to stay connected with the PTA and school community. It is much more than a website – it is an all-inclusive site with information on our calendar of events , opportunities to join PTA , volunteer to help with events or activities, purchase Weaver Wear , and much, much more. Please check out the site and register as a new user or login to see all the exciting things happening at our school.
