What does WARDE PTA offer you!?

Warde PTA offers you the tools and resources to make your child’s academic and social potential a reality. Today’s parents need to be engaged, empowered, informed and responsible in advocating for their children and WARDE PTA wants to partner with you to accomplish this.


The Warde PTA’s Family Engagement Team strives to promote ACTIVE and EFFECTIVE Parenting of Teenagers.  Research shows that parents are the #1 influence on their children’s choices, but they must learn how to effectively harness that influence.  Our series of programs are designed to deliver a unified and cohesive message of active parenting, including teaching specific tools and timely information.  We hope to empower you to deliver defined, clear and consistent messages at the times our children need to hear them the most.

Our Main goals are:
*Communication so you can participate: Weekly email newsletters, our PTA Website, and the Directory given to all Members at the Open House.

*Building a Sense of Community and Pride in being a Warde Family: Organized around teams, it is easy to find others who share your interests using our Organizational Framework posted on this website.

*Informative Programming: Focused on addressing our Parents needs and concerns, programs planned include: the 9th Grade Forum on Underage Drinking, Hands-On Naviance/Family Connection training, and College Panel Presentations.

*Student Support: Making our families lives easier, we offer On-Site SAT Prep courses, club support, National Reflections program, college scholarships, and senior internships.

Fundraising is a very small part of what we do. We raise most of our funds through membership (the only check we ask you to write), our monthly Flea Markets, sales of Spirit Wear, and affiliation programs like Stop & Shop.

We hope you will join us!!
