Hello from the WPO President
I’m Elizabeth “Liz” Craig, your WPO president. I consider myself an organizer, and I welcome your collaboration. My family is in our 4th year at The Waverly School, and I’ve found my community here. I’m here because I LOVE this school, I LOVE the staff, and I am nosy about what my kids are up to. My youngest is Eleanor “Nellie” in preschool, and my oldest, Nate, is in Rebecca and Jason’s 3rd/4th-grade class. Joe McNulty, my partner, is all in at Waverly, too!
Let’s be honest. Parenting is hard, and, sadly, it can also be isolating. I LOVE that Waverly encourages, wants, and needs parent support. Studies show that our kids’ growth and development absolutely benefit from parents’ interest and presence. And frankly, it’s fun to be involved!
The WPO goal this year is to continue to build the Waverly community and provide channels for parents to support each other while we navigate these ever-changing phases of life. Please do not hesitate to reach out about any needs for your family or ideas on how to make school life better. Let’s do this together.
Shoot me an email at email@example.com. I look forward to meeting you soon!

What is the Waverly Parent Organization (WPO)?
The WPO is composed of Waverly School parents working together to build The Waverly School community through volunteerism.
All Waverly parents/guardians are automatically members of the WPO. The WPO welcomes and encourages your participation in events throughout the year.
How do I find out about volunteer opportunities and events?
Monthly meetings are held at 5:30 p.m. on campus on the first Tuesday of the month (please check the school calendar, as some exceptions occur during holidays). Committee meetings are announced via email, the Waverly Weekly News is sent to parents by email on Fridays, and WPO announcements are on the bulletin board at the front entrance of the elementary school. WPO activities are also available on the WPO page. You are always welcome to reach out to me or other officers.
What will the WPO opportunities look like this year?
We have monthly WPO meetings to discuss what has happened and what is coming up! There are multiple ongoing volunteer opportunities from serving lunches (Choicelunch – daily, and pizza – Wednesday for MS/HS & Friday for ES), and elementary school library support.
Individual WPO events include the Halloween Party, the Winter Event, Jog-A-Thon, the Waverly Spring Gathering, Rock Show, Teacher Appreciation Week, and more!
We are ALWAYS looking for your hidden talents and ways to support our families.
