It’s not too late to volunteer!  The book fair is always FUN, but we need your help for it to be successful.  We especially need help during preview day (9:30 am – noon, when the K-2 students come to look), before school sales (8:45-9:30 am), and after school sales (3:30 pm until closing).  Please visit the following link to sign up for a time that works for you: 
We look forward to seeing you at the fair!

Election for PTA President Coming Up Soon! 
The PTA is pleased to introduce the candidates for the 2014-2015 PTA Presidency.  Teresa Jones and Katherine Hite are both eager to serve the Wiley community in this capacity.  Please look for their mission statements in the 5/5 blog. 
The election will be held at the next General Assembly Meeting on Thursday, May 22, at 6:30 in the Media Center.  Free childcare will be provided by the YMCA in the cafeteria from 6:30-7:30.
In an attempt to allow all PTA members the opportunity to vote, paper ballots will be sent home in Monday Folders on May 12.  Each member will receive a ballot and an envelope.  Please complete your ballot, place it in its accompanying envelope, seal the envelope and then sign and print your name in the designated areas on the envelope.  For households where more than one PTA member resides, please put only one ballot in each envelope.  Election protocol requires that PTA members follow these steps in order for their votes to be counted.
Ballots being returned to school via Monday Folders will be due back no later than Tuesday, May 20.  All other ballots may be returned to the ballot box in the Media Center between May 12-22. 
Anyone who is not yet a member of the PTA and would like to vote in this election is encouraged to come to the General Membership meeting on May 22 to become a PTA member that night.  You may also fill out the attached form and include cash/check for $10 per member and drop it in the PTA mailbox anytime before Thursday, May 1. Forms are also available in the office if you do not have access to a printer. 
For questions/concerns regarding the election process, please contact Catherine Bray at  If you are not sure that your PTA membership is current, please contact Linda Saah at or Heather Nguyen at  A membership application is attached to the blog.
