Will Rogers Learning Community PTA

Co-Presidents' Message

Heidi Gonzalez & Meghann Russell

meghannheidiphotoThank you so much for your continued support of Will Rogers PTA.  We are working hard every day to try and make a positive impact on the lives of everyone in our wonderful learning community.  An important goal for us this year is to really get to know all of you and to make our programs and events accessible to all Will Rogers families. Join the PTA and come to a meeting, join us at one of our events! Feel free to let us know about the things important to your family's school experience. We all have something to share and studies have proven that children do better in school when parents are involved. 

By joining our PTA you not only show your support for your child and the students at our school, you have a voice in issues nationwide that affect ALL children! As a member of the PTA, regardless of how much or how often you may be able to actively participate, your interest in and support of the activities for our children is visible.  PTA members vote on important issues affecting our school and students; from things like enrichment activities to school events and how we can best support our wonderful staff at Rogers.

Five really good reasons to attend CA PTA Convention in Los Angeles this year!
logo pta1.       No airport travel necessary – it’s in Los Angeles!
2.       If you’re a new PTA officer or Chair – this is an opportunity to make the most of whatever you’re doing in your term! There are workshops for virtually EVERY position (president, treasurer, historian, Reflections chair, Membership Chair, Legislation Committee Chair, just to name a few).
3.       If there’s an issue you care about impacting students at our school, there’s a speaker who’s worked it to learn from – Why re-invent the wheel on improving the cafeteria menu or increasing traffic safety when there are experts waiting to share the how-to’s of their success stories with you on these very issues and many more?

Jog-a-thon is Around the Corner

Mark your calendars for WRLC's annual JOG-A-THON on APRIL 4th.  Once again, our community of students, teachers, and parents will take over the back lawn of the school, and we'll encourage all our students to run laps for FITNESS, for FUN, and for funds to help PTA support art, music and other educational programs at Rogers - but the emphasis is on FUN!  This year, we're excited to reward all students turning in the minimum donation of $5.00 with a super-cool WRLC T-Shirt.  Of course, there will be other prizes for the top fundraiser from each grade (turns in the most in donations), and also a special prize for the class with the best participation.  Look for a flyer with more details and the Student Donor Log in the 3/19 Wednesday Folder.  Parents are also needed to volunteer to help - it's a fun day at Rogers not to be missed! 

The Will Rogers 2013-14 Yearbook is now on Sale!!
Every school year we create a Yearbook with photos of all individual students, pictures of specific activities/events, and fun school moments.  
For many of you, this is old news.   However, this year we offer an exciting new option.  For the first time, every family that buys a yearbook has the option to include two individual pages of their own child.  If you like the idea of personalizing your child’s Yearbook and want to add a personal touch, then get your camera ready and take pictures of all the achievements and fun moments your child will have in school this year.  The opportunities are limitless…field trips and holiday activities are just around the corner! Just remember to capture your child’s precious WRLC moments!  You have time to personalize you pages until April 4th!  We offer help to those who need computer access, please email Claudia Seizer to set up a time at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
