Parent Teacher Organization

The World Academy PTO is dedicated to fostering a sense of community, school support and school pride, in order to nurture a culture of respect, success and quality for W.A. students. We do this through community projects, social events and fun activities that bond all constituents, creates opportunities for us to get to know one another and supports our common goal of giving our students a “World of Opportunity.”

All parents/guardians of children from Infants through Grade 8 are asked to participate, in any way, as a vital member of our school. We know you are busy, but we guarantee your child will get more out of the school experience with you as an active part of it. Join us and you might find a support system, a few casual acquaintances, or lifelong friends; but for sure, you will be strengthening the investment you made in your child’s education. A strong school has a strong PTO community behind it!

yearly events

Yearly Events

Throughout the school year, the PTO organizes many events. The events bring our World Academy Families together for social events and special programs.

PTO Pizza - (every Friday- Sept. through June)
Children in grades K through 8 can enjoy pizza for lunch on Friday instead of bringing a brown bag lunch. Pizza is ordered from a local business in Nashua. Order forms and other information will be sent home in September.

Bake Sale - (November)
Parents are asked to donate baked goods to sell usually the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. This is not your typical school bake sale. Wrap the items as an individual serving or bake a larger treat to bring for the whole family to share. Details will be sent home during early November.

Staff Appreciation Breakfast & Lunch - (Dec. / April)
To thank our teachers and staff for all their hard work we treat them to a catered lunch and breakfast. This is a wonderful treat for our teachers and staff who enjoy the food that is served.

fundraisers

Ongoing Fundraisers

Raising money for school-wide events goes on all year through the Box Tops for Education and the Labels for Education programs.

All you have to do is:
Clip the labels off selected products. Place them in a clear plastic bag and write your child’s name, grade, and teacher’s name. Bring them into school and drop them in the box located in the front hallway.

Through the Box Tops program we get $.10 for every Box Top collected and a check written out to the school to use as we like for the school.

The Labels for Education program is fairly new to our school. The program runs on a point system. Each product has a label with a point amount. The school is able to redeem these points for items, i.e. gym equipment, musical instruments, computers and a lot more.

Classrooms will have competitions during the year and win prizes for the most collected.
