Verona Elementary School
Every child. One voice.
PTA Welcomes You to VES...
Welcome parents, families, and caregivers to Verona Elementary
School! We, the Verona Elementary PTA, look forward to meeting each
of you as we support our school this upcoming school year. We get
the opportunity to do things as a group that makes a difference to the
teachers, staff, and students of this school. We would like to encourage
each family group to consider becoming a part of the PTA in some way.
Why should you get involved? First of all, being a part of the PTA
connects you to your child’s school. It’s a great way to know what is
happening and changing in the school. Plus, it shows your child that you
care about what happens within the school walls. Secondly, it provides you
the opportunity to make a difference in the students and teachers daily
lives by using your individual talents. And lastly, it gives you the chance to
meet some really great people who want to make a difference for Verona
What do we do? With parent volunteers and the profits from
fundraisers, the Shop, Save and Earn program, Restaurant Nights, and
various other sources, the PTA is able to provide many things including:
An artist in-residence for an additional full semester – since the county
only provides an art teacher for 1⁄2 of a school year, teacher stipends (for
classroom use), Movie Nights, the Winter Carnival, technology funding,
Muffins for Moms/Doughnuts for Dads, a Wearable Art program, Teacher
Appreciation breakfast, murals, playground equipment, and the Butterfly
Garden as well as other projects that vary as need arises.
What would you need to do? We will be on hand to answer questions
as to where we need help. Rest assured we have many members
whose volunteer time varies greatly. Some can only step in here or
there...some can only make it to meetings...some can make it to only one
meeting...some can be at everything! Each member is just as valuable to
us! We need YOU! Feel free to contact me via email or phone to talk more
about the opportunities available through the PTA!
This year, each classroom will have a volunteer (or more than one) that
will attend PTA meetings monthly and forward PTA information to other
parents in the classroom. This way, every parent will be up to date with
PTA activities and opportunities! The classroom rep will be requested to
attend PTA meetings once a month and distribute the minutes to parents
in their child’s classroom. The minutes will be sent to the classroom
representatives by the PTA. There will be sign-ups coming home the first
week of school with your child. We would love to have you as part of our
Thanks for all you do!
