Whitehouse Parents’ Club

A Community Working Together for Children

Welcome to Whitehouse Primary! We’d like to introduce you to the Whitehouse Parents’ Club! Perhaps you’ve heard about our group through various fundraising activities or the supplies and programs we financially support at school. Providing these extras is important to us, but our work goes beyond raising money. We’re always eager to find more great people, like you, who share our mission.

Our mission: promote an environment at school where teachers and administrators can do their best work and our students can do their best learning

Whitehouse Parents’ Club (WPC) supports our school by providing:

  • Playground Equipment

  • Secret Santa
  • Student Assemblies
  • Book Fairs
  • Power House 5K & 1K races
  • 4th Grade End of Year Gathering

A huge time commitment is not needed! An hour can be a big help and we have positions and activities to fit all schedules and interests.

Whitehouse Parents’ Club meets monthly on Thursdays with free babysitting provided. We hope you’ll join us and get involved! Together, we can make a difference at Whitehouse Primary!

We’d love to hear from you! Please feel free to call or email with ideas or questions.
