Don’t forget to vote on Election Day, November 4, 2014. This year there are three positions that are up for election on the Wayne Township Board of Education. Your vote is important. Don’t pass up your opportunity to elect leaders to the Board of Education who you feel will work to keep our school district one of the best New Jersey.
We encourage all families to join your school’s PTO. Membership in your school’s PTO chapter helps support the many different activities that your PTO provides for your students, including scholarships for high school seniors. By becoming a PTO member you will be able to vote on your local chapter’s budget and participate as a volunteer at all in-school PTO events. The deadline for payment of PTO dues is midnight November 30th, 2014. Some examples of things our parents love to volunteer for are Fifth Grade Day, Teen Canteens, Project Graduation, and Class Parent. If you are the parent of a student at Wayne Hills High School or Wayne Valley High School, please note that in order for your student to qualify for a PTO Scholarship as a senior, you must be a PAID PTO member for each and every year your child is enrolled at either high school. Parents are not permitted to “catch-up” and pay for multiple years during the students’ senior year.
