About WPA

Waterville Parents' Association

The purpose of the WPA is to enhance and support the educational experience at Waterville Primary. A variety of activities and events will develop a closer connection between school and home by encouraging parent involvement, and to improve the environment at Waterville Primary through volunteerism and financial support.

We sponsor events such as Movie Night, Secret Santa, Winter’s Ball, Bowling with Boys, Donuts at Dawn, Muffins in the Morning, Spring Spectacular, 4th Grade Send Off, Book Fairs, and much more!

Plus, our fundraising efforts help support the school by providing technology equipment (Chromebooks, 3-D printers, etc.), library and classroom resources, and much more!
