PTSA and Booster Groups

Parental involvement and volunteerism in Maggie Walker is one of our longest-standing traditions. Parent volunteers are in the halls, the school offices, the classrooms, and at every major school event. This year’s PTSA President is George Nyfeler.

Some of the events sponsored by our PTSA include the yearly Fall Festival, faculty and staff appreciation meals, and welcoming events for new parents. The PTSA also supports the community by maintaining the Dragon’s Lair Student Store, and by publishing the student directory and the weekly email newsletter, Smoke & Scales. Our PTSA Advocacy Committee keeps the school connected to our participating school divisions, as well as elected officials.

Our PTSA SCRIP Program allows community members to purchase gift cards to stores and restaurants at no additional cost to them with a percentage of each sale going to the PTSA. This year, we will be doing SCRIP only for the winter holiday season so if interested, take a look at the list of scrip retailers, download an order form, and be sure to put your order in the SCRIP BOX in Valenta William’s first floor Bluestone Lobby Office (room #100) by 2 PM on November 7 or November 28. Delivery for each of these order dates will be approximately a week after the order is placed, during lunch, to your student. Gift cards make great holiday gifts! The complete Scrip list of retailers is online, as well as the Scrip Order Form.

Parent Booster Groups combine volunteerism with fundraising to support specific areas of interest in the school. In addition to assisting coaches, teachers, and activity sponsors with organizational and logistical tasks, the Booster Groups partner with the PTSA and the Governor’s School Foundation in the yearly Night of the Dragon fundraising auction. This year’s Auction Chair is Peggy Feldmann.
