How Can You Help?

Let us Count the Ways.    





Become Part of the Pack

Benefits include auto decal, tickets to PTA sponsored events, business recognition at events and on our website. Find out more here.


Take some simple steps while shopping to earn $ thousands $ for WES

If every parent (and grandparent!) followed these steps when they shopped Whitesides could earn tens of thousands of dollars!  And that's without buying anything they weren't going to buy already.  We promise it's not too good to be true.

Amazon Smile - Instead of shopping through, shop through Choose to support “Whitesides Elementary PTA” and the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to WES!

Harris Teeter - Link Whitesides Elementary to your VIC Card. When you shop Harris Teeter brands, a percentage of your purchase is donated to the school that your VIC card is linked to. There are no limits as to how much a school can earn. All VIC cards will need to be linked yearly. Visit to link our school today!



Work a table at the Back to School Picnic.  Decorate for a party.  Sort project materials for a teacher.  Write a blog post.  Assist in the front office.  Help organize an auction.  There are so many ways you can help.  To find out more, visit our volunteer page.


Purchase an item from a teacher's wish list.

Check with your teacher to see what they need.  All donations can be dropped off in the front office unless special instructions are listed.

Attend an Event

School events are an important way for us all to get to know each other.   Ticketed events are also one way that the PTA raises money for the programs we support.  Check out our calendar to see upcoming events.   Have an idea for an event?  Email us!


Share Your Experience

Do you have a story about how your child has benefited from a teacher or program at Whitesides?  Have an idea that would benefit the Whitesides community?  Come to a PTA Meeting or drop us a line.   We'd love to talk to you!
