Please participate in National PTA's ANNUAL REFLECTIONS PROGRAM: 2014-2015

“The World Would Be A Better Place If.........."   is the theme for this year’s National PTA’s 2015 Reflections Program.


ALL STUDENTS are invited to create an original piece of work based on this theme.  Artwork can be related to any of the six categories listed below.

Musical Composition        

Dance Choreography        

Film/Video Production        

Literature        

Photography      

Visual Arts


General information and rules about the program as well as specifics about each of the contest categories and rules can be found through the following link: http://www.pta.org/programs/ArtsinEducation.cfm

Submissions will be accepted in the main front office at Warde through, Tuesday, January 6, 2015. Students may submit more than one piece of original art but each submission must be accompanied by an official Reflections Student Entry Form and all rules outlined by the National PTA must be followed.

Submissions without forms will NOT be processed and therefore will NOT be submitted to the state level competition. This is a great opportunity to present students’ creative side and a meaningful addition to college applications or job resumes.

Raising money for PTA programs is as simple as shopping for groceries at Stop & Shop
Have you given us your number THIS YEAR?  **IMPORTANT - All numbers must be re-registered each year, so please email our Stop & Shop chair, Cathy Petrone. Just email your 13 digit Stop & Shop key card number, along with the last name that the Stop & Shop card is registered under to:
Cathy at fiveinparty@aol.com
and she'll do the rest!

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!!
