Windward Parents Association

Purpose

The purpose of the Windward Parents Association (WPA) is to promote the welfare of The Windward School by maintaining a close, working relationship with parents, faculty, administration, and trustees. The organization sponsors many programs throughout the school year, including meetings, social events, and fund raisers. In addition, volunteer committees provide assistance to the school for various functions. Volunteering on one or more committees is a wonderful way to meet other parents, share ideas, and feel part of the Windward community.

Parent & Guardian Participation

Since the success of the organization depends on parent and guardian involvement, our goal is 100% parent participation. Thank you in advance for your support and commitment to the Windward community!

If you are interested in becoming active in the WPA or have a question, please email wpa@thewindwardschool.org.

WPA Activities

The WPA sponsors many programs throughout the school year, including meetings, social events, and fund raisers. In addition, volunteer committees provide assistance to the school for various functions. Volunteering on one or more committees is a wonderful way to meet other parents, share ideas, and feel part of the Windward community. Some of the activities that the WPA sponsors include the Back-to-School Picnic, Faculty and Staff Appreciation Breakfasts and Holiday Luncheon, the book fair, and the Mentor Program for New Families. Windward’s SpiritWear sales, as well as proceeds from the book fair and class photos, help to support the activities of the WPA.
