Welcome to the Willingboro Education Association Pride Newsletter! If you are receiving this via email, it is because you visited a WEA Pride table at a PTA meeting, Parent/Teacher Conference, or other Pride event. We are starting a newsletter to keep all our supporters informed of upcoming WEA Pride events.
You may be asking:
What is the WEA?
The Willingboro Education Association (WEA) is made up of teachers, secretaries, security officers, paraprofessionals, custodians, and maintenance staff who work hard every day to ensure that each Willingboro student receives a high quality education.
What is Pride?
In 1994 the New Jersey Education Association initiated a PRIDE in Public Education campaign to share the success of New Jersey’s Public Schools and building community support and involvement. The WEA Pride committee has been working hard this year to build a stronger relationship between the WEA and the Willingboro community. We sponsor Willingboro sports teams such as a soccer team, softball team, and cheerleading squad. We have visited several PTA meetings and even a Neighborhood Watch meeting. You may have seen our table set up at Parent/Teacher Conferences complete with gifts for participants and refreshments. We are reaching out to the community to help build a stronger support system for our students. We are not only here for the students but for the community as well.
What does Pride do?
So far this year we have worked with the Neighborhood Watch to help make our community safer. We have sponsored sports teams to encourage athleticism and a healthy way of life. We have visited several PTA meetings and Parent/Teacher Conferences and will continue our outreach efforts so that parents know who we are and that we are here to support them and their children.
We are working on reaching out to other community organizations to join more community events. We are organizing many upcoming events in the Willingboro community, including, another Neighborhood Watch event, an Optical Academy visit, and our Willingboro’s Finest event. At Willingboro’s Finest we will honor a student and support staff member from each of our schools as well as a business and a citizen who loyally supports our schools here in Willingboro.
What can Pride do for you?
Pride is dedicated to helping the Willingboro community and would be interested in working with you to ensure that community events are successful. We would love to become more active in the community and help promote community events within our schools.
