Welcome to WECPTA

Log in


WECPTA is a volunteer-run local PTA organized under the authority of Ohio Congress of Parents and Teachers (Ohio PTA). We offer families with children ages six and under an opportunity to socialize, engage, learn, and interact through activities designed to promote their welfare and development.


The purposes of the PTA are:

  • To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, community, and place of worship,
  • To raise the standards of home life,
  • To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth,
  • To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth, and 
  • To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental, social, and spiritual education.
