One of the WHE PTO’s biggest roles is raising funds to provide critical infrastructure and curriculum for our students and teachers.  Although WHE may seem to be a “well-off” school, Iredell County ranks 110 out of 115 counties in North Carolina for per pupil spending, and North Carolina itself is 43rd nationally in per pupil spending. The dollars raised through our PTO not only allow us to bring some fun educational enhancements to our school, such as the new outdoor classroom and Discovery Place hands-on science visits, they also provide for some very basic educational tools, such as new laptops for our teachers and iPads for our students.


The full 2015-2016 financials can be found here.

For 2016-2017,  the PTO will focus their spending on the following areas:

·      Curriculum Support

·       Technology Updates

·      Phase II of our Outdoor Landscaping Overhaul
