Student Life

PTA

No school can function properly without the support of its parents. The Westchester Day School Parent Teacher Association is an active and vibrant volunteer organization that plays a key role in our school. The goal of the PTA is to develop and maintain active parent participation, support student and staff needs, and reinforce the partnership between parents, faculty and the school. Through various programs and fundraisers, the PTA enriches the WDS learning environment and strengthens the bonds throughout the community by engaging students, families, staff and administration.
