Walter C Black Elementary School


Dear Parents,

Welcome to 2016-2017 school year at Walter C. Black!  We would like to introduce ourselves. We are Joanna Radzicki and Jenni Rispoli, and we are your PTO Presidents.  We extend a warm welcome to our new students, staff, and families at Walter C. Black (WCB).  We also welcome back all of our returning families and staff.   Our school’s theme this year is: Launching Learners into Leaders.  More information with be coming home from Mrs. Felicetta regarding this.

The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is an important part of the WCB community.  We work hard and have fun while raising funds to provide educational programs to enrich our children’s lives.  All parents/guardians of WCB students as well as all WCB staff are automatically members of the PTO.

You can support WCB by assisting with and attending our many family-oriented events.  They include the Back to School Family Picnic, Pumpkin Carve-in, Family Dance, Trenton Thunder Night, Dolphinpalooza, and more.  We sponsor School Pictures, Plant Sales, Book Fairs, Spirit Wear Sales, and other fundraisers to support our efforts. Please "like" our Facebook page to get up to date information.

We use the funds raised to provide grade level Field Trips, Classroom Gifts, a Holiday Store, and School Gifts.  We support our teachers and staff with Room Parents, Teacher Gift Cards, a Welcome Back Breakfast, and Staff Appreciation Celebration.  These programs are made possible through your support of the PTO.  Please check your child’s backpack and your email each day for information on all our important events and fundraisers.  Your participation will help make 2016-2017 a great year!

Please take the time to read this website and decide where you can best help out.  Ask a friend or fellow parent to volunteer with you.  We need as many volunteers as possible and are happy to work around your schedule.  New for this school year, we have a PTO manual that describes all volunteer positions and what is involved (see the "Volunteer" link above).  Any amount of time you are able to give is greatly appreciated.  We look forward to working with all of our parents (old and new) and encourage you to contact us with your ideas!

Thank you in advance for your efforts,
Joanna Radzicki & Jenni Rispoli
