A Letter from the President's Desk
Dear WHS PTO members,
Enjoy the weeks ahead. I hope to see you on the 20th!
WHS PTO President
PTO Member Spotlight on...Deb Sollinger
What is your current WHS PTO role? Chair, Pie Fundraiser
Where are you from? Originally from Baltimore, Maryland
Where did you go to school? MSW from Yeshiva University, worked in not for profit for many years
What do you do now? What is your profession or job? Currently owner/director of Camp Laurel - children's residential summer camp in Maine
How many children do you have and what are their ages? 3 girls - junior, freshman and fourth grader
Why did you become involved in the PTO? One of the wonderful things about living in a small town is the ability to understand, and then hopefully influence, what is happening around you. I joined the PTO to gain a better understanding of our schools, the systems governing it, and the individuals with whom I was partnering to educate my children. Having an impact on your community is a process, and for me that process began with what has the greatest impact on my family right now - the school system.
What are your PTO goals for this year? We are so fortunate to live in such a generous community. The PTO does a wonderful job providing supplemental funding for the schools. I hope to raise as much as we can this fall to support the PTO, the administration, and ultimately, our children.

This is a town-wide fave and an IMPORTANT fundraiser for the PTO! Net proceeds benefit the WHS PTO Philanthropy efforts and have a direct impact on our school and students.
Drop off baked goods between 3-5pm on Monday, November 4th in the back of the Middle School by the voting entrance. Please note: All items should be individually wrapped and labeled with the list of ingredients, and please - No nuts!
