The Wards Creek Elementary Extended Day program is now taking early registration for the 2018-2019 school year. If you register before April 6th you receive half off the registration fee (usually $80/child, discounted price = $40/child). This is a great deal, so get your forms in when you get back from spring break!!
Download the registration form here!!
Extended Day options include before care (6:30-8:15 am), after care (3:00-6:00), or an option for both before and after care. New this year is a drop in punch card program. Punch cards will contain 18 fun-filled visits to extended day for $360. Only one card per family needed and will include all that extended day offers (snack, drink, activities, etc) and the team requests a 24 hour notice that you will be using the service!! No registration fee required for the punch card, but please fill out the registration form!
Any questions, please contact Ms. King, Extended Day Coordinator at Christina.King@stjohns.k12.fl.us or 904-547-8737. (Please don't ask the PTO because while we <3 you all, we are only sharing this message, we don't know!)
Spring Break is upon us and probably the last thing you want to think about is FSA Testing (right?!). BUT We really do need your help. The school is required to have a certain number of monitors for testing for our students and there are still gaps that need to be filled. Can you spare 2-3 hours of a day? This is the easiest volunteer job you'll ever have. You come and make sure no funny business is happening during testing. You might help grab a new sharp pencil for someone... but really, that's about as hard as it gets!! Please consider volunteering your time and know that it is GREATLY appreciated by those trying to meet testing goals.

Calling all volunteers!! Our annual Daddy Daughter Dance is next Friday, February 23rd and we need you! This is one of our biggest events and is such a wonderful memory for all of our girls and their dads (or special someone).
As always, we’ll have raffle baskets, a photo booth keepsake, lots of desserts to enjoy and an amazing DJ playing music for everyone to boogie down! The deadline for discounted pre-sale tickets and corsages has passed but you can still pay at the door if you plan to attend! (Sorry, no corsages for sale at the door)
Door prices: $12 for Daddy/Daughter duo and $5 for each additional daughter.
Here’s the link for our volunteer signup genius. This is a great event for any volunteer hours needed at school, too (this includes middle or high school students needing hours...) These events are a LOT of work (but so much fun!) and are next to impossible without the help of our village!! Many hands make light work - so please consider joining us!
It's the time of year - time to apply to join the Wards Creek PTO Executive Board! You can check out the positions open and read more about each job by visiting this document.
Applications can be downloaded here. They must be submitted to the school in a sealed envelope labeled ATTN: PTO PRESIDENT. Applications are due by February 16, 2018 at 6 PM. If you are interested in serving for the upcoming school year, please consider applying to join the board! Also an important note - list all of the job roles you'd consider serving in. This is a wonderful opportunity to serve the school and we're not going to lie - we have a good time on the PTO Board :) You will make some amazing friends & have an inside view of all the hard work that it takes to make a successful PTO! We might be biased, but it's a great volunteer job!
If you have any questions, please email Ann Gillette, PTO President at WardsCreekPTO@gmail.com.
The Wards Creek PTO is made up of parent volunteers and staff members at Wards Creek Elementary in St. Augustine, Florida.
