The Little Compton P.S.T. is a support organization -- whose members represent the various stakeholder groups within the WMS community (parents, students, teachers). Our purpose is to be a positive presence and influence at WMS on behalf of all of our children. We currently meet monthly. Specific event subcommittees meet independently. We do many different things throughout the school year:
- We raise money by sponsoring annual Book Fairs, collecting Box Tops, Labels For Education, A+ Rewards with Stop & Shop and other general fundraising in order to bring various cultural events to the school. In the past we have had theater troups, African musical groups, Navy band Christmas concerts, storytellers, wild bird tamers, and a stunt cyclist that discussed self-esteem and bullying. Funds are sometimes used to purchase special items for the school. Some examples: letter die-cut sets, athletic uniforms, tvs, dvds, rolling carts, books for classrooms and library, athletic benches and much more.
- We sponsor fun days, such as Field Day, where we cook and serve lunch while the children compete in events on mixed teams. We sponsor Family Fun Nights which may be a Bingo Night or a Beach Party in January. PST organizes a Holiday Fair where they can shop for gifts for their family. We also sponsor Staff Appreciation Week which includes a bus driver breakfast and a staff breakfast and luncheon. We have also sponsored after school activities and in school assemblies.
- We are always looking for new ideas and new volunteers. If you can volunteer to run an event, bake, count box tops etc… we can use you. There is always a way to get involved, whether it be a parent with only a few hours a year, who could help out at an event, or one with a special expertise they would like to share.
