Resources

It is with the warm and generous support from our community that the PTA can help support Wedgwood with resources for the following.

 

Library

Did you know all funding for library materials comes from our parent community? The district does not budget for library materials such as new books, or to replace lost books. We couldn't create our reading culture without our families! Thanks to the generous donations from our parent community, our students are able to have updated books and materials in the library.

Scholarships

Wedgwood PTA is working hard to help remove any barriers that might prevent a child from participating in school-related clubs or activities. Scholarship support is available to our community. Reach out to Nurse Sarah for information: snbarquero@seattleschools.org

Examples of support include:

:: Spirit Gear :: School Photos :: Field Trips :: Clubs/programs :: Instrumental Music :: and more!

Teacher Classroom Budget & Teacher Grants

Did you know that each teacher is given $500 at the start of every school year? Without this PTA-funded gift, teachers would likely have to dip into their own pockets to create the atmosphere in their classrooms that make it a comfortable environment for everyone.

Teachers and Staff also have access to additional funds available to them via “Teacher Grants” (initiative must benefit everyone at school). Recent examples of approved Grants include:

:: Salmon Tank :: New Earphones in the Library :: Wedgwood “Little Library” :: 5th Grade Legacy Mural :: Social Studies Magazines

Instrumental Music

4th and 5th graders enjoy a thriving instrumental music program (optional) at Wedgwood, and the PTA is proud to partially fund the program, facilitate scholarship support and help organize a dedicated program volunteer.

Wedgwood parent volunteers work closely with our Principal to help support students, teachers and classrooms in the event of an emergency. The ongoing goal to provide these basic supplies to the students and staff of Wedgwood, including classroom “buckets”, water, food, blankets, as well as manage/organize classroom Comfort Kits for every child.

Building Beautifcation

Did you know that a few Wedgwood parents recently updated our fabulous Teacher’s Lounge? With a small budget and mighty initiative, PTA volunteers assist in beautifying our school so that our teachers and students can safely, and joyfully, get through the day!
