Attending monthly meetings is a fun way to meet K-8 parents and staff while learning about school curriculum, events, volunteer opportunities, and discussing ways to raise and spend PTO funds.

Who Are We?

The White Salmon Valley K-8 Parent Teacher Organization (WSV K-8 PTO) is a group of parents, teachers, and school staff who work together to enrich the education of students attending Whitson Elementary, Wallace & Priscilla Stevenson Intermediate School and Henkle Middle School. If you are a parent/guardian of a student in those schools, you are already a member of the WSV K-8 PTO. There are no dues or fees involved.

What Do We Do?

  • Whitson Elementary "welcome back" barbecue in the fall

  • Assemblies, such as Jefferson Dancers, Oregon Aquarium, & OMSI

  • Field trips, such as Oregon Children's Theater & Maryhill Museum

  • Family events, such as Family Math Night & Skate Nights

  • Spring swimming lessons for 3rd graders

  • Organize and provide scholarships for Zoo Snooze

  • Bring visiting authors and artists to classrooms

  • Funding for many classroom and playground projects, such as classroom furniture, the reader board, school painting, a ball wall, and a sound system for the gym
