Will Rogers Learning Community PTA

President's Message

Katherine Newall

 (2014-2015 Message coming soon!) Thank 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?
